Sim Swap Moratorium for triple sim IMPLEMENTED January 2017

By: frpc | 21-12-2015 11:02

Now that tri-sims have been established for almost a year, why is there any reason to retain the 6 month time limit for sim swaps?

Time to stop disabling tri-sims for just being a few weeks (or more) over six months. It would help everyone to be able to use a tri-sim of any age for their sim swap.

Good evening lovely giffgaffers,

This idea has now been officially implemented. You'll now be able to activate SIM's that are over 6 months old. Nice one, frpc. A big thank you to everyone who supported this idea, also. Without your help, we would not be able to implement this fantastic idea.

Have a good'un and stay bright.

I have long since asked why a live SIM couldn't be used for SIM swap - as all live SIMs can be activated - 

Numbers are NOT assigned until the SIM is activated - so the reason was the process not the shelf life.


I am pleased this will improve costs as creating SIMs and posting them costs money.
