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.

This is a good idea as I manage 2 sims. This should make it convenient to manage all sims in one place. Would this be implemented? If so, how would we be notified?

In my humble opinion to have the ability to manage a pool of sims via a single account login would be a giant leap forward and to be honest it is the only thing that is halding us back on moving our company phones over to GiffGaff.

Currently we have moved two over but having two logins is really a pain so we have decided to leave it at that for now as with our current provider we have the ability to see all the current sims under one login which makes my job a lot easier.

useful this would be.

got 2 kids on giffgaf but have 2 accounts,

would be much easier to have the 1 account where i can control both sims

This would be excellent if implemented. I currently have to manage my partner's, my Dad's and my own accounts including topping them up. If I could log in once and administer all 3, it would save me a lot of time.
