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.

This would help our situation.

I assume with this Company or Family account, there would only be one active username and therefore only the person in control would be able to contribute to the forums and gain payback through the referrals programme (and they could then quickly do into super recruiter territory - if they have  company account)??

I like this idea although not sure how some people will cope with this if they end up putting credit or goodybags onto wrong account and then wanting to pass the blame onto giffgaff.

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.

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.
