Countdown timer for 6 month sim de-activation

By: 0alexscott | 05-05-2019 08:25

After 6 months of unuse, giffgaff sims deactivate and the number is re-assigned. For me, travelling abroad long term, I need to keep this number and use it with all my 2fa accounts etc.. so I don't officially use it for messaging/calling unless back in the UK for some reason.

It would be great if there was a countdown timer somewhere in the giffgaff dashboard that I could check how long I have left before the sim de-activates and I lose the number associated with it

I think that this would be genuinely useful.

I like it, it sounds like a natural extension of the dashboard information we already have that would be easy and relatively inexpensive to implement. One would hope that with this information provided, giffgaff would then end up sending less emails warning of disconnections, plus it would be better for members in that they wouldn’t end up losing their number if the email wasn’t seen for whatever reason (limited internet, non-delivery or whatever.)

Yes there should be a date showing expiry date.
