  • JamJamBinks JamJam (@JamJamBinks) reported

    @giffgaff whats going on with your network coverage in the B38 area? I've been with you for 7 years and the signal has gone to pot since a new O2 tower was put up a few miles from me? Calls cut out CONSTANTLY, I'm about two phone calls away from switching networks tbh

  • giffgaff giffgaff | The mobile network run by you (@giffgaff) reported

    @wild_coconut Hi KJ. It sounds like your new phone may be locked to another network provider. Our SIM cards will only work in phones locked to giffgaff/O2, or phones that are fully unlocked. We would recommend that you contact the retailer/network to ask them to unlock it - giffgaff Hannah

  • wild_coconut kj (@wild_coconut) reported

    @giffgaff I've turned it on and off now it's come up .. Enter network unlock code.. your phone isn't allowed to use this sim card??

  • wild_coconut kj (@wild_coconut) reported

    @giffgaff hi I've put a new sim in a new phone but it keeps coming up not registered on network... HELP! x

  • trrhodes Ross Rhodes (@trrhodes) reported from Edinburgh, Scotland

    @giffgaff Hi Hannah, thanks for the prompt reply. This seems to be a persistent problem near a signal tower, so I suspect that may be the cause of the problem? May your team investigate further please?

    @RobbieBone Customer service best to worst from my experience. Tesco Giffgaff Anywhere Sim Vodafone 3

  • Rosiebutton6 Rosie Button, kangarillapigbooks (@Rosiebutton6) reported

    @giffgaff It offers me orange, vodaphone or Movistar the only one that I can get any service on is Movistar with one bar signal and virtually no data connection

  • giffgaff giffgaff | The mobile network run by you (@giffgaff) reported

    @Rosiebutton6 Hi Rosie. If you are not in the UK and you're roaming abroad you will need to try connecting to another network that is available - giffgaff Jade

    @m__crane Hi Mark. How can we help? - giffgaff Jade

  • giffgaff giffgaff | The mobile network run by you (@giffgaff) reported

    @Rosiebutton6 Oh dear, Rosie. Please perform a manual roam to refresh your connection to the network, as this usually helps. See how here, - giffgaff Jade

  • m__crane Mark Crane🇬🇧 (@m__crane) reported

    @giffgaff anybody help. ?

  • kevholli Kevin Holligan (@kevholli) reported

    @giffgaff let down. Refurbished phone sold with battery that needs Service. Max capacity 73%. My attempts to resolve not going well. Stalled in admin; “Have to use our repair service as it’s in warranty. “ Now I have to accept a NO DETAILS £90 ‘quote’ or still pay £15!

    @CharmsOfLight If your credit has been used as a result of an issue with your goodybag on our side, this would be reimbursed so you don't lose out on getting your goodybag. - giffgaff Janine.

    @giffgaff Thanks, but that’s not reassuring at all. Now I’m even more worried about @giffgaff’s role funding hate. @Facebook has years of history promoting hate and slow walking any change. What is there to talk about? Just. Stop. Hate. For. Profit #StopHateForProfit @slpng_giants

    @giffgaff Hi, I've had problems with connection for pretty much 24hrs, most apps and sites won't connects and says "Can't connect to server". In N14 area

  • mrbumfluff123 Ste (@mrbumfluff123) reported

    @giffgaff The link sent me to a page that was broken..pressing network coverage but nothing happening..probs due to the fact the internet I'm paying for is not working! Changing network as yours is useless now...

  • musicandy76 Andrew Marshall (@musicandy76) reported

    @gierrofo @SpotifyUK @giffgaff Just pay for a subscription...problem solved... or get a sub for tidal as it's better quality and meant to pay artists fairer

  • SilverDionysus SilverDionysus (@SilverDionysus) reported

    @giffgaff Tried and hasn’t worked and according to your map I should have fabulous service

  • danielswan danielswan (@danielswan) reported

    @giffgaff please sort out your mobile site and app. Lots of bugs and broken links. Not good enough!

  • ukdatageek Grant Kemp (@ukdatageek) reported

    @super_marek @giffgaff I had an issue with them where calls were not being connected and their contact us form was broken. Sadly community support couldn't help with that either. I had to go to ofcom to get refund and transfer

    @__k_a_r_a__ @SMARTYMobileUK I've try to change my Giffgaff for Smarty for same reason 30GB for £10 seems unbeatable but there is one big flaw no network where I work and Giffgaff still provide two bars on 3G .

  • super_marek Marek ✈ (@super_marek) reported

    @giffgaff I've solved my problem by going to the nearest @Tesco to buy the top-up voucher. Have a nice day.

  • giffgaff giffgaff | The mobile network run by you (@giffgaff) reported

    @super_marek If there are more members having this issue Marek, they may have already been in touch and had an update regarding what's going on. This is why this option was given Marek. - giffgaff Jeanette

  • super_marek Marek ✈ (@super_marek) reported

    @giffgaff It's not a problem with my browser, url says it's `internal-error`, so something has gone wrong on your side. I've already sent a request to your support, but they will take ages to reply.

  • Margey_moo Margaret Sarah (@Margey_moo) reported

    The stalling techniques from @giffgaff agents when you have a genuine problem is unbelievable. 29291 steps that don't make sense to avoid them having to deal with the problem. Appalling #CustomerService

  • Tone7x20 An objECtionable Tone (@Tone7x20) reported

    @giffgaff Would love to try that, seems the problem is I'm not getting a 4G signal, checked I have Mobile Data ON so it's not that... this just keeps getting better.

  • giffgaff giffgaff | The mobile network run by you (@giffgaff) reported

    @Tone7x20 That's strange. The next time this happens we would recommend trying another browser as this may be caused by a browser issue. - giffgaff Janine.
