Apple Sim - iPad Mini 3, iPad air 2 and WIFI Calling - giffgaff an option?

By: diwatty | 31-10-2014 14:15

So it has been annouced the new iPads which have come from the valley which have cellular capabilites will have a new sim which is pre-installed allowing you:

" The flexibility to choose from a variety of short and long term cellular data plans from select carriers, right from your iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3."

 

Now currently in the UK, EE is the only partner Apple has which is working with it so far. 

 

And now that giffgaff is recoginised i think its time giffgaff starts talking to Apple to bring these devices to the best mobile network in the UK.

 

That brings me on to my next point WIFI calling, Would it be possible for giffgaff to work with Apple to bring this to our network? WIFI calling only currently works on (you guessed it) EE. If we could get this working on our network this would be a huge leap forward in the Apple world and could make us a game changer in the UK Mobile Carrier market for Apple Devices.

WIFI calling is a great idea using whatsapp or skype is good if you want to make a call but if people are trying to call you this is where they fail, using WIFI calling would streamline the process without the person on the other side needing the right app

Just left 3 who offered it. iPhone to iPhone is fine with iMessage and calls over wifi. You don’t need an app for all iphones newer tha 5s just need GG to make it available. I would support this I. left 3 because I knew O2 coverage was better in the main locations I use but still not great. Also GG allow tethering and provide 4G when roaming in Europe

Works on Three too. Makes them a better bet for work phone, even though Giffgaff nicer!

I'm not rural, I live a mile inside the M25 but my locale has poor phone signal on all networks. I've got used to wi-fi calling from home with my old provider EE and didn't realise until today that it wasn't available with GG. Now I know why my call quality has been so poor recently. Few people I need to call are on WhatsApp or Skype, so this could be a deal breaker.
