Yes...


Run through O2 so you have decent signal, prices are very competitive

Just be aware that they are on-line support only. So long as that's not an issue and O2 provide good enough service there then worth a punt.

My o2 contract is up, I've just ordered a sim card from Giffgaff as they seem to be offering the best value 4g data/ call minutes and text deal at the moment (£20 unlimited everything, change tariff up or down as required each month).

I ordered a SIM card last year but never used it, stuck with O2 but will consider Giff Gaff when my contract end in May.

They seem to offer no nonsense packages.

Son uses them as in UK at uni. No problems & good value packages.

Just received my giffgaff sim - prompt delivery

Apart from a slight hiccup with updating internet settings on my iPhone 5s (instructions on giffgaff website woefully out of date) all went smoothly.
I then discovered that visual voicemail (caller details of each message left displayed and no need to call to retrieve voicemail) is not available on giffgaff.
Unfortunately this is a deal-beaker for me. Sacrificing this useful feature is not worth the 2 or 3 pounds per month I would have saved on giffgaff, so I will pass the activated sim on to my lovely wife, as she's currently on an ancient o2 payg tariff and the giffgaff sim will be a much better deal.
