Activating sim

By: vickythefist1978 | 05-07-2019 03:44

Believe it or not but not everybody lives in areas where there's people or WiFi to activate sim. Is there someway to activate the sim like you do when you top up by ringing instead of Internet. When I first joined giff gaff I excitedly got my sim brought voucher topup and then completely forgot that I needed Internet to activate my sim so that I can put credit on (carch 22) I then had to wait 2daysas I live in a very rural area. So that I could borrow someone's WiFi to activate and join giff gaff. Couldn't even ring and ask someone else to activate it as you've guessed it no credit without sim activated. I know its impossible for some people to imagine that there's still people and areas without free Internet access but believe me people like me who are still living in the dark ages do exist. And my mother who wouldn't know how to use the Internet but can easily dial a couple of digits on her phone to activate a sim.. Can't see you giving this idea a minutes thought because it seems that rural areas are not important enough or even thought about when ever you implement something new

I believe that you can stick an un-activated SIM card in a mobile (smart phone) and access the giffgaff website - so you should be able to activate (with a voucher - not sure about debit/credit cards) the SIM without an Internet connection.

Not supported because this is relevant for less than 1% of giffgaff customers so the business cost of accommodating these people is uneconomical. Next time, you should hotspot off someone's else data connection to connect to the internet
