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.

Hi I agree as I lost my original no and account as lost SIM and have lost out on any off my other sims being activated so would be great and also when SIM is registered during that process the new owner or yourself has the choice to add to like you say a master account big thumbs up from me jock

Great Idea, even if like me you would only like to have 2 sims - one work based and the other personal, and with dual sim phones now available.

Being in a similar position of managing 12 phones within the family I certainly see this as a good development. A simpler solution which I had in mind when researching the ideas posted here would be to allow each account to have a nickname field rather than have to remember which number is with which person/car etc.
