Do you have to pay monthly for giffgaff?
You can get great deals on minutes, text and data and can be renewed monthly. However, if you choose you don’t want a deal you can just top up whenever you want and use your phone credit. You pay upfront and are not tied into any deal or contract. Our giffgaff goodybags work just like pay as you go deals.
Is it free to call giffgaff to giffgaff?
*Free to giffgaff: The free giffgaff to giffgaff calls last for 60 minutes per call, so you need to hang up and re-dial if you want to keep talking, without being charged.
Why is giffgaff signal so bad?
There could be issues with a mast or poor coverage affecting your data speed. Try turning your phone off and on again. Frustratingly, sometimes that’s all it takes. If you’re on the Always On goodybag, check my giffgaff to see if you’ve reached the full speed data limit.
Is giffgaff better than EE?
Giffgaff’s coverage relies on O2’s, which means it’s currently at around 99% 4G population coverage indoors. That puts it behind Three and EE and in line with Vodafone. Giffgaff also has strong 3G and 2G coverage, so you should be able to get mobile data of some kind almost everywhere.
Is giffgaff better than O2?
The major difference is; all pay monthly O2 plans have 5G coverage, but giffgaff’s 5G is limited to selected deals. Also, if you value 4G Calling, Wi-Fi Calling, extras that come with Priority etc. you’ll need to pay more and join O2. If a lower cost option is all you need then giffgaff will suit you better.
