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.

Yep, I'm a new customer. Having multiple user names, using the same email is a pain in the ****. As ios keeps updating the password so I'll have to keep requesting a new password reminder.

Sort this please

I have a sim for my phone and a sim for my ipad. I don't always renew the goody bag of the ipad as I mainly use the wifi. And now I get notified that my activity seems to indicate I'm not permanently in the country and therefore won't be able to roam from my balance. This wouldn't happen if the accounts could be linked.

What happens if the person managing multiple sims with only one password is seriously injured or dies? A negative thought but it could cause problems. ????

This idea is a perfect way to manage my own and my son's account. But with all great ideas, they tend to take lengthy times to put into practice. Maybe a more speedy process from idea to user benefits could be improve. Other than that, isn't it fantastic that with giffgaff the 'community' is able to influence the creative process?
