there is a section on their website where you can sign up and they will send you a free micro sim for the iphone 4.
The people who cut these sims are still only members of the giffgaff community (like myself). I was simply offering a direct route for PHers, along with being able to help people if they need/want it smile

I believe the free mobile internet was initially for everyone without needing any extra bundle/goodybag. That's coming to an end but still with most goodybags (from £10 up) get inclusive unlimited mobile data anyway.

Have got a PAC from O2 and should be moving over later in the week.

What this does is then sends your details to one of GiffGaff's approved SIM cutters (like myself), who then cut the SIM and send it out smile

I've been with them since last year, apart from the occasions where the network has gone down I haven't had any issues. Can't argue with there value for money and its nice not to worry about getting a bill at the end of the month. The unlimited texts is a good perk, no limit to go over, used to get caught out with O2 but on GG can happily send as many as I want.

How is that better than free unlimited texts?

<snigger>

Free texts plus Whatsapp is available in the app store on iPhones 59p, much better than BBM.

£10 goodybag has capped internet at 1GB now.

Soon be £15.

To my surprise last month I used over 5Gb on my £10 deal, so I guess I'll be going with the £12. Wish they'd do ~10Gb capped for about £20/month with tethering.

I'm tempted to move to the £10 one with my iPhone 4 instead of getting a 5. Is it pain free to move from O2 contract to it? And if I want to move back to contract, is that easy? (Obv keeping my number).

I moved in March from o2 with my iPhone4. Got my PAC code from o2.
Can't actually remember how I did it.
I cut down a normal sim card that GiffGaff sent out to me though.

Agreed. I'm currently on 300min/ 3000 text/ 1gb internet @ £10pm from Three, but got £100 cashback at the start so over the 12-month contract it's effectively £1.66 a month smile

I moved in about June - totally painless, and by that time they'd managed to send out micro-SIMs so didn't need to cut it down to fit my iPhone 4. I guess anyone who wants to use Giffgaff on an iPhone 5 can expect to wait the best part of 2 years for them to start producing nano-SIMs judging by this timeframe laugh

Was a bit surprised about the price of my £10 deal effectively going up 20%, but it's not going to break the bank. At least the price for going over 1GB in a month is only 2p/MB; that means a second gig will be an extra £20 but Tesco mobile charged me something like £7-8 a day (for not very much data in that period) when I exceeded my 1GB cap once.

Yeah it was, took a couple of months for the cashback to arrive but was definetly worth it. Planning on just doing the minimum term of the contract then will swap to whatever is the best deal at the time.
