Allow mode to be specified under Contact Permissions

By: toc | 29-05-2012 09:31

I strongly recommend a change to the Contact Permissions under My Details.  I'd like to be able to select the mode of contact: I'm happy to receive GiffGaff info and offers by e-mail, but don't want them as text messages. 


I've got two reasons:
- any text message received while driving or in a meeting is an annoyance; if it's not urgent then it's doubly so;

- thanks to an annoying feature of my phone, any text message received while I am asleep means that I wake up to a flat battery.

So, please, give me the option, so that I haven't got to turn off contact completely.

Well that's a subject that has attracted many people to suggest changes to Giffgaff's notifications.

Some wanting more (almost notification about everything) some less, some wanting different timings and like this suggestion an ability to choose between SMS and email, both or neither.

Personally I don't have any problems with the way Giffgaff have things as is, there are proven environmental impacts from email (energy usage being much greater than a similar amount of information by SMS)

So I can see benefit from this for every member who chooses SMS and no email a small but important shaving if electricity and the impact of its production.
