My nan has a very old nokia phone (not a smart phone) and was on the giffgaff network. They switched to 4g and now her 3g sim doesnt work. She wants to keep this phone. What network or sim card will I need to get for her ''standard phone''?

Asda PAYG, I use it in a 9 year old Nokia, as a spare in the glovebox.

When did she get the text, we have a few oldies on giffgaff pay as you go and none of them have had the text, also can't see anything on their site or community about it. O2 would be a good way to go, was thinking of moving ours to it, they now have a cheap PAYG cheaper than giffgaff.

She's had quite a few texts off them saying it will be disconnected as they are switching to 4g and will no longer support 3g sims. She doesnt read her texts though, only uses her phone for calling.

I thought Giffgaff used O2, and not aware that they were phasing out what would be 2G coverage - an old Nokia will be a 2G device, not a 3G
