    @giffgaff I have filled in the return as the phone is for my daughter and it needs to be a reliable one. I am surprised that the engineers missed the problems on this phone. Home button doesn’t work and the phone is stuck on the set up screen. Learnt my lesson

    @VodafoneUK Whenever I'm back in the UK, I will never use @VodafoneUK again. Instead I will opt for @EE, or @O2 or or @ThreeUK or @giffgaff.

  • n_fantajidesign ☁🌌N.🌌☁@3/9 MIKU (@n_fantajidesign) reported

    @cakey39 I was told Giffgaff does count as an O2 network but i don't know if that applies here! 😂

  • bastillerhianna rhianna bolton (@bastillerhianna) reported

    @giffgaff screw that voice message then i am not paying £10 to listen to a voicemail wtf 😭

  • ScotRamsay Scot Ramsay, Esq. (@ScotRamsay) reported

    As a regular traveller in the EU, I will have no option but to change network from @giffgaff (The phone - a Moto G6+ running Android Pie - can see the networks, but all are "Forbidden".

  • ScotRamsay Scot Ramsay, Esq. (@ScotRamsay) reported

    Really P'd off with @giffgaff Have just returned from France where, for the third EU trip in a row, my SIM would not connect to local networks. Roaming turned on on my phone. Roaming turned on on my Giffgaff account settings. Have posted on the Community, but no solution.

  • 1AustinMitch Mitch (@1AustinMitch) reported from Northamptonshire, England

    @EE No bud, basically your network is really bad and am paying to be on that rubbish network... where’s @giffgaff when you need them!

  • garydav5282256 gary davies (@garydav5282256) reported

    @N_MonkeyUK @EdesonTony Giffgaff and no signal

  • hebaBy2k11 hebaBy2k11 (@hebaBy2k11) reported

    @giffgaff By which I mean the issue about the credit registering as the wrong amount

  • LiveLau67893234 LiveLaughLove (@LiveLau67893234) reported

    terrible customer service @giffgaff ported number to you on Thursday and no calls/texts since then, no customer helpline to phone and zero response from your 'agents'; seems to be an ongoing problem and you're just hiding it away in your 'archive' section

  • AndyZaphod26 Andy Mardell Esq. #FBPE 🇪🇺 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@AndyZaphod26) reported

    @theanalyst Try @giffgaff Simon. Never had any problems with them that couldn't be sorted out

  • _mlorimer Marta Lorimer (@_mlorimer) reported

    @aurelmondon @giffgaff Three has a very friendly roaming policy in its feel at home destinations (includes non-EU countries). I have never had to ask for a confirmation of my phone number, so don’t know if they would be more responsive, but you can download your bills from their website

  • RandalMcMurphy7 Randal McMurphy (@RandalMcMurphy7) reported

    @al_ifriqii @inamohamedx @abellaferguson @ThreeUK Giffgaff is the awnser - OK so some have issues which is the inevitable nature of the beast but credit where due they sort it out quick enough. I'm not in thier pay BTW - trust me I will tear into companies where I need to - just look at my bitter rants with @tescomobile

  • sarahh112 Sarah Paul (@sarahh112) reported

    @Danuals @CPWTweets Mine was delayed by a month. No comms from CPW until I chased. I had a 45 mins to cancel the order and then get a refund. Ordered one from @giffgaff. It’s being delivered tomorrow.

  • Mykiel_B MikeB (@Mykiel_B) reported

    @peaapod__ @giffgaff If you didn’t enter your details no sim swap will happen. If you did then contact your bank now to report a pontential breach as that’s the scammers main aim. If you use your giffgaff login on any other websites, change the passwords on those accounts now.

  • ShehanR2 Shehan R (@ShehanR2) reported

    @ThreeUK Worst network, I’ve been a loyal customer for years but they really don’t make it easy. Speeds in London are dismal, there is no coverage when you need it the most, I will be joining the large crowd of people leaving. Side note: my gf is on @giffgaff, it’s way better + reliable

  • sch_416 SCH🇵🇰 (@sch_416) reported

    after switching from giffgaff to voxi, i can say it was a bad choice, judging by the reviews i read online, i thought they would of been a decent network to be with, their coverage is crap

  • sch_416 SCH🇵🇰 (@sch_416) reported

    after switching from giffgaff to voxi, i can say it was a bad choice, judging by the reviews i read online, i thought they would of been a decent network to be with, their coverage is whack, time to switch to another provider

  • amythebirder Amy Robjohns (@amythebirder) reported

    @ShadyShergold @EE Giffgaff or Three. I only switched from Three as the signal in Winchester is crap.

  • DoctorWhosThat Lewis 🇬🇧 (@DoctorWhosThat) reported

    @Buzz_Bingo Hello. I'm having problems logging into the mobile application, keeps coming up with a internal error. Using Xiaomi Mi A1 on GiffGaff.

  • glennmaltman Glenn Maltman (@glennmaltman) reported

    So I’m stuck with speed restricted #Giffgaff and the can’t be arsed to help #O2 . Because the phone ( a second hand gift ) appears to be locked to them I was told it’s unlocked.O2 won’t unlock it unless the original owner contacts them. Well that can’t be done. Nightmare FFS 🤬

  • haylbart Haylbart ⚘ (@haylbart) reported

    Hello @giffgaff I requested a SIM card and received a text saying it was on its way...but it's not arrived 😢 any help with this would be great 😊

  • PeteDTrenchard Pete Dillon-Trenchard (@PeteDTrenchard) reported

    @HarrisonRBRadio @FlippinKath @iainlee I could be wrong, but I *think* someone said GiffGaff uses the O2 network...

  • HanRus85 Hannah 🍂 (@HanRus85) reported

    @iainlee phone contracts are awful I think. We are with giffgaff so cheap to top up etc

  • Alfie_Agius am I (@Alfie_Agius) reported

    @paul_tweedy @VodafoneUK @giffgaff ‘Cept they’re awful too. 😏

  • helli_may Helen (@helli_may) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport 2 hours on the phone to cancel a £9 sim only contract, wild really. Still not convinced it's actually been processed. Back to @giffgaff I go.

  • glennmaltman Glenn Maltman (@glennmaltman) reported

    ****** #giffgaff there’s getting slower speeds, I get that, but then there’s getting the spinning circle of doom for -at times- 10 minutes just trying to tweet . I think I’ll have to take my £25 to a No speed restrictions deal . Damn we were getting on so well 💔

  • sarahh112 Sarah Paul (@sarahh112) reported

    @bamforthmi @CPWTweets @ytsethunder @BBCWatchdog I’ve just ordered one from @giffgaff. I’ve already had a text message to say it’s been dispatched and will be delivered on Monday. @CPWTweets please take note this is how a company SHOULD treat their customers. Please hurry up and sort out my refund. #lovegiffgaff #cpwfail

  • jack_2397 Jack (@jack_2397) reported

    @giffgaff I’d love to, but @VodafoneUK are wanting me to pay £400 to get out of a contract, even though they aren’t providing the service I’m paying for 😢 @BBCWatchdog

  • UrbanHangman UrbanHangman (@UrbanHangman) reported

    @giffgaff I am really confused as to why I have less than 1Mb download and upload data speeds and I have 5GB of data. Please fix this ASAP before I am forced to leave this network.

  • mmaaggles Maggie (@mmaaggles) reported

    @sheepchase I just did this in August. I chose giffgaff as they had the best coverage in my parents hometown (they use O2 signal). Definitely check coverage maps if you will be anywhere rural!

  • chickennugg4ts Danniiiiii (@chickennugg4ts) reported

    @giffgaff been with you for 6 years but recently my signal/data speed is so slow or not working at all I think I’m going to have to leave!! 😩

  • RaphaelPoitou Raphael Poitou (@RaphaelPoitou) reported

    @giffgaff your goodybags are SHIT why am i always on some slow ass 3G come on man, sort it out.

  • Terradactphil Terradactphil (@Terradactphil) reported

    @giffgaff i can't complete my phone purchase after being approved by ratesetter because it now says the phone is out of stock. It should be out of stock because i bought it (at least i'm hoping so). Please help me. No agents have replied to me. This is utterly ridiculous.

  • Terradactphil Terradactphil (@Terradactphil) reported

    @Mykiel_B @giffgaff @RateSetter I've updated my query but i'm not holding my breath. They haven't replied to me yet from my original query. Thanks very much for your help anyway.

  • zwieback852 辣条缺失症患者 (@zwieback852) reported

    @giffgaff I checked. Network in my area was fine. I refreshed, and it didn’t solve the problem.

  • Terradactphil Terradactphil (@Terradactphil) reported

    @Mykiel_B @giffgaff Thanks for replying. Ratesetter haven't asked me to order again, just to approve the purchase but i can't do that. I haven't had any contact from ratesetter or giffgaff to say there is any problem. I'm stuck now not knowing if i should get a different phone or not

  • davejohnscomic Dave Johns (@davejohnscomic) reported

    @giffgaff @Vodafone you’ve been rubbled with your Stealth charge on your handsets. you are and you know you are charging for handsets long after the handset is paid for and if the customer doesn’t notice they can lose hundreds of pounds
