Roll over of unused minutes and data

By: maggie333 | 20-10-2014 15:12

I would like GiffGaff to consider any unused minutes and data to be carried onto the next month (obviously you would need to top up without a break to benefit from this). Last month I didn't use my data allowance, and this month I am almost through the 1GB.

i think this is a great idea as I genuinely run out off data and I buy some more data and that's my goodybag then gone its a joke really if I'm honest. Top idea pal.

Sky are doing this as a way to attract customers (even though I think you can only unlock 1GB of your rollover every month) . Wouldn't surprise me if it becomes normal practice. :)

I agree that we should be able to roll over our unused data. Lots' of us don't want to use the queued option, neither do we want to go purchase vouchers. Just incase one forgets to pursue new g.bag, on date of renewal. The former would be perfect. Instead of having to go use friend's WiFi to buy G.bag, if forgotten. Obviously, no minutes to be rolled over, but data makes sense. Especially as most other companies are doing so now. I hope this idea does come to fruition. Thanks for listening.

Perhaps they could have a variable option of less text and minutes for more data.

I use my GiffGaff sim in my GSM alarm dialer which alerts me by SMS or rings me in the event of a break in while I am away from home. Currently I'm using the cheapest GiffGaff bundle available for this which is the £5 bundle. While still a better option than other networks, I am effectively paying £5 every month for texts and calls I rarely use.

While this isn't GiffGaff's problem, I would like them to offer something for people in this situation - i.e. ultra low usage.

Realistically, the most SMS Messages and Call Time I'm ever likely to need or use in year would be around 100 SMS and 15 - 30 minutes of call time.

In my case, I'd be happy even if GiffGaff rolled my bundle over for 30 days and then I top up again.

Or maybe GiffGaff could create an ultra low usage bundle for those using the SIM in applications such as mine?

Or perhaps a special low usage yearly tariff of say £25 per year for 100 SMS messages and 30 minutes call time.

A great idea and giffgaff should definitely do it. Other companies are. The roll over should be permanent. Not just for one month and then you still loose it. You've paid for the product so you should get to use all of what you have paid for. I've lost a fortune in this way, paying £20 for always on data and then only using 800mb of data in the end. They could even introduce a facility where you could trade in unused texts or call minus for data.

Agree with earlier comments - o2 is advertising this and well received ideas tend to be adopted by competitors. I've used GiffGaff for a while and have been impressed that the £10 Goody bag I tend to use, is better value than when I first joined. However, although good value and I like its flexibility, GG isn't the cheapest, so anything like rollovers will help to keep customers.

Just notice on  that o2 as started this and has been very welcomed by its members

And why would GG lose out are you saying if everyone used all there goody bags data that GG will lose money

We shouldn’t lose out every month
