Help Elderly Sim will help

By: jason1973tess | 03-10-2018 19:28

To help the elderly have a QR code or barcode sticker on the back of the mobile phone go to shop and scan it for the amount they want to top up for also linked to their account

We need to have a sim just for the elderly with a the price and a a5 pound sticker or 10 pound and so.on

Telling them haw to get started haw to get it all set up everything that need to no...

Smashing idea

I find this idea rather patronising, verging on offensive, towards those of us who are ‘elderly’. Being of more advanced years does not mean being incapable of dealing with mobile phones and buying credit,

Sounds like a good idea, although there maybe a better way to ease topping up for the elderly or people without Internet access. However, I'm not sure that Giffgaff is an ideal provider for such people.

Could be helpful for many!

As it was deleted without explanation:

How would this be any easier or simpler than just using the app to scan the top-up voucher which automatically adds the credit to the account?

Plus the existing method doesn't require different stickers for each voucher amount or replacement stickers when they get worn, damaged or un-scannable.

Most people of a certain age that I know, so not know or would not be able to get their head around a QR code. For the lederly, will this really help them, or the younger people who are more tech savvy?

It's the same as a QR CODE STICKER it can't cost that much for a sticker is going to help even I'd use it though because it saves messing about with sticking numbers in this town cover cos most of the time when you do it anyway you press the wrong number it's only like having a card but people lose cards can't lose a sticker cuz it's on the back of your ****** phone you don't going to cost him much is it

Yes, I like this idea. It would be worth Giffgaff at least looking into it to see if it would be cost effective.

Not everyone understands modern day technology and keeping things as simple as possible would benefit some.

Good luck with your idea.

I top up £10 every single month right what's so hard about her compound QR code sticker straight into a £10 goody bag it's not going to cost them much like you just said it would make it easier not just for the elderly it'd be good for me and be good for anybody
