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.

make it for professional workers who can keep track and date time who work when what and when things happen in giffgaff data . Meaning work Giffgaff as a chef but have to use me phone to catch people out so think working man/woman Giffgaff which just install work aspects hence ! Menu/specials/costing/rota/menu/order/excectra..

My name is Kelvin Clark but I have to say catering is big industry and is sadly missed buy phone conpanys . I know this from my youth I use to sell mobiles door to door down in Newquay when it was law to do this .I will say I am a head chef to this day and feel that this is a massive industry that is being left in the dark ages. As I do know the council has this app and aspect for laptop and mobile . Sorry for my thoughts if you would like more of this were we could take this email me

Yes! Both my kids have giffgaff sims, both of which I pay for, but I can't access them both in the same place.

This is actually preventing me from moving our other two phones across from Tesco.

I cannot be bothered using FOUR accounts!
