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.

Absolutely. It's frustrating having to manage multiple SIMs as completely independent accounts.

If GiffGaff provided this service I'd probably move my other numbers/SIMs over.

will this include one number/sim for a phone and 4g Watch?

I believe it is not legal to have two different SIMs for the same number - it is called cloning - and it certainly used to be illegal.

this would be the best option for me..my three kids and me are all on giff gaff SIM cards but I pay for them all. It’s tricky setting up 4 different accounts for me to monitor when it’s only me paying for them.

You only need to respond once. You can only vote once. It is no more emphatic if you comment three times!

Do I make a clearer point by responding multiple times? I thought I didn’t. It just makes you tired of reading the repetitive comments!

How many comments do you think we need to read? We know you voted…

Yes this is what I need, I manage 3 sim accounts within my family. It would definitely make my life easier.

I have a Mifi device on Giffgaff which I use for internet access as landline broadband in my area is so slow 2-4 Mb/s. The Mifi gives me 20-25 Mb/s. I have just transferred my phone to Giffgaff and had to create a second account. I intend to transfer my wife's phone when her contract ends next year (didn't know how good Giffgaff was when we renewed her contract).

A single account to enable me to check all 3 accounts would be perfect (you can do it if your on O2!)

Can you do it on PAYG with O2? I would have thought it was a benefit for contract customers only.

This is exactly what many giffgaff households are clamouring for! Please get this in place ASAP.
