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.

THERE ARE SEVERAL OTHER REASONS TO HAVE MULTIPLE SIMS, I.E 2 SIMS IN ONE PHONE AND 2 OR 3 TRACKERS.

this idea is now ancient GiffGaff. When are you rolling out?? Now 2020!!!

Sort this out as I'm at the point of moving 4 family accounts elsewhere where managing accounts is easier.

I have more than one phone and I have to pay for my son and wife from the same account. It would be so convenient to deal with all of it from one account. count my vote.

My fleet of devices requires management multiple accounts with one for each Sim .. work, not play. Daniel

Yes, this idea is excellent and allows for multiple numbers for one person (say a number for general use and one for family/friends only).
