Handling multiple SIMs from a single company/family account

By: ivida | 14-02-2010 02:10

This idea was brought up by several posts earlier (see 1,2) and Vincent has even posted

a partial solution, but apparently it hasn't yet made it to this page.

 

The proposal is to have the possiblity to handle more than one SIMs from

a single account. This would be useful for companies, families, couples

and any other groups, if handling of the SIMs' administration/finances

is performed by one person.

 

The point is not necessarily to have only a single account for the SIMs,

i understand that at the moment the system requires the creation of an

account for each SIM.

 

The point is much more to have the possibility to define a master account from

which you can access relevant settings of all the SIMs within the associated pool.

Not only to top-up (this is not a problem as you can top-up any number through

the giffgaff pages) but also to activate/inactivate  auto top-up or set speding limits, etc.

 

Another important aspect of a company/family pool os SIMs would be to handle the

credits more flexibly: to have the possibility to transfer credit from one SIM to

the other.  Tthere was some discussion about  implementing some form  of credit

transfere on giffgaff (1,2) - in my opinion company/family SIM pools would be a good

argument to push such a feature and also an excellent context for the development

and testing.

Would really like to see this implemented as I currently manage all the family Sims and logging in and out of accounts is a pain. I love the idea of transferring unused call time, sms or data to another SIM in the family, this would be a brilliant addition to this concept, as one SIM never uses data and the rest of us run out of it constantly. Please " make it so". I have been waiting patiently for this since I joined 18 months ago.

Wonderful idea.... Many of us fit into this category... (Constantly having unused credit, while others have out)...

It's been suggested a gazillion times and being looked into. It would be good as I have a family of five all on giffgaff that I manage their accounts and sometimes it can be a pain. I forget my passwords at times and I refuse to write them down somewhere. Hoping giffgaff implements this sometime.

I was going to suggest a family account be see I’m not the only one who would like this. My daughter uses data and some texts but never many minutes, my husband never uses any data as he won’t have a smart phone. Would be fantastic if my daughter could have his data allowance.

as a parent I am managing four phones plus a spare. It would be great to not have to remember or record so many login

it's not gonna happen , it's against what giffgaff do , one account one member.

YES YES & Yes please. As a new giffgaffer, spreading the GiffGaff word among family and friends... This would help me tremendously. Imagine trying to talk a totally non computer techie person through registration and setup... You might begin to see how almost ESSENTIAL THIS IDEA REALLY IS. Sorry for 'shouting', but I do urge you all to say yes to this idea as soon as possible. Thank you.
