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.

Please please please one account for multiple sims...I'm losing tack of my user names!!!

with multiple phones and also iPads I can if necessary admin them from one base but I end up forgetting which was which and consequently 3mths later ordering another sim and having t create yet another user name which puts me right off the GiffGaff process

Yes. A simple account just for me - to use my phone, for text and calls only, and then my tablet for data only, both from one account. Please!

A short update: We are definitely looking into shared accounts, however, the shared usage moves away from the simplicity that giffgaff strives for. Your support and vote will help towards implementing this idea. Keep up sharing those shiny ideas with us.


Thanks,

I don't think we would be loosing simplicity just the opposite, so many of us have multiple SIMs it would make it far easier to manage them.

Yes please. As parent of 4 teenagers, each on Giffgaff, with me holding the purse strings, I do find it a pain that I cannot manage them together. Hubby & I wish to join gg too but I’m running out of email addresses....(I’d also like the bank statement entry to be coded in a way to remind me which phone it relates to.)

Please! I can't remember 5 logins, which phone renews when and trying to sort my dad's card out when pointed to his email was a nightmare. I need to be able to manage 5 sims from a single login, add nicknames so I know whose is whose and pay with a single card. Being able to transfer unused data between sims would be a bonus as would consolidating the renewals to one day a month

this idea is perfect... it would make things so much easier to handle if one person can just deal with the finances.
