Yes you need a SIM?

Providing it's not a replacement for one which you've reported as lost of stolen (you'll have to sit tight for the one giffgaff post out to you), then your two quickest methods are;

Buy one from a local shop which sells SIM cards (most super markets, convenience stores, etc. sell giffgaff SIMs for around ยฃ1), or let us know your rough location (don't post your full address), as there could be a member local that can provide a spare one for you.

Hi @chubb08,

The SIM Swap procedure makers sure that the SIM is for the same account and has the same number Smiley Happy

To carry out a SIM swap, go to https://giffgaff.com/profile/details and go to where it says "replace my SIM".
Once you have your new SIM, it will take you through the process.

Regards TITA

As mentioned above; the method of SIM Swap is your friend here, though if the SIM tou require is a replacement for one reported as lost or stolen, then you will need the SIM giffgaff post out to you.

If this isn't the case and you still need a SIM, quickest option is to probably head along to any shop which sells SIMs and buy one for around ยฃ1. Most outlets now carry giffgaff SIM cards.

If it's a replacement for a SIM you've reported as lost or stolen, then you'll need to sit tight forbthe one which giffgaff will post out to you.

If not, then your options are;

Let us know your approximate location (but not your full address), as there may be a member local to you whom you can arrange a SIM with.

Or buy one from a local shop, practically most shops that sell SIM cards sell giffgaff SIMs for around ยฃ1.

These above are your quickest methods, though if a quick turnaround isn't important, order one from your orders page: https://giffgaff.com/orders/mgm and delivery should be within a few days.

Assuming that this is a replacement SIM, then you'll want to retain your existing number along with any credit or goodybags you have. To do this, you'll need to perform a SIM Swap, of which the following guide will walk you through it:
