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.

You can already have multiple accounts with giffgaff: one for each telephone number. Each of your usernames is the unique identifier for your PHONE NUMBER, and stays with the giffgaff SIM when the number from a different network is transferred over to your giffgaff SIM. If you need help, go to the main Community Help & Support pages (link through the FEEDBACK button along the right side of this page).

to be honest I thought you could run multiple accounts from one source or account

This would make more sense

Data transfer between family members would be good

At the moment I have a SIM for me and my partner but plan on growing the account to children and grandchildren

So what’s happening with this? It’s been thought about for a long time.

Would be great for larger Families if you had Sims that you could have a very low monthly top up (£1 or £2 each) that the person who is managing the Sims adds then the individual users can additionalally add credit to their own Sims if they want to.
