Handset program

By: dvarm95 | 07-12-2019 10:49

I am suggesting this for techie fans, basically my proposal is a giffgaff specific equipment swap/rental/trade scheme where customers of giffgaff can within themselves opt to swap/trade/rent/sell handsets/equipment. This does however depend on a community database of device, a quality control, choice to carry out secure transactions, and may even point the way to a scheme of point collection depending on usage of the service and ability to swap these points for devices for example through the giffgaff phone store.

I came up with this idea through various discussions with friends and colleagues who constantly upgrade or buy handsets sim free only to lose out on 1000s of pounds, considering we are trying to help the environment this sort of scheme would essentially through the scheme itself enable selection and choice of appropriate devices as per an individuals needs placing less pressure on manufacturing and transportation of devices from other countries contributing to climate change and also make the mobile industry a little more environmentally friendly and also serve the mobile user community and demographic by offering a service that enables sales a rental of some kind or ability to swap (as long as quality standards are checked) giffgaff would revolutionize the industry by taking this approach.

This is a very nice idea. This industry is lagging behind its environmental commitments, so even if they don’t choose to implement this, it should get them thinking about what more they should be doing for the environment.

I'm pretty sure that there would be health & safety issues plus legalities and insurances to worry about. I don't think this is something for giffgaff to put money into.

giffgaff already selling refurbished handsets i dont think it would be in giffgaffs interest for the members to sell hansets privately between themselves

I don’t feel giffgaff is the correct platform for this. How do you control the quality received? Many would like to receive a bargain, but it is not as useful to the giver, unless they are prepared to personally not be better off.
