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.

Another one here managing kids accounts via three separate accounts. Please put a family feature in ASAP.

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.
