Activate a SIM card

Upon receipt, we recommend the sim card in order to get a phone number assigned. Giffgaff does not assign phone numbers until the SIM card is active so don’t look for it printed on the SIM card as you won’t find it!

If you are still not in the UK, our recommendation is to activate the sim card with just £10 of airtime credit. Airtime credit does not run out if you don’t use your mobile, so don’t be afraid of topping up even if you aren’t planning to come to the UK right away.

Configure mobile internet

Calls and messages function automatically when a SIM card is inserted into your mobile, but to be able to navigate the internet, you have to previously configure the giffgaff connection. Sometimes, depending on the terminal, we cannot do this automatically and we have to introduce the APN manually. To enable this, we offer the giffgaff APN configuration of every mobile on the market.
