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.

How is this still not a thing in 2021? I have five family members with GG SIMS now and managing them would be so much easier if I could log into a single account to administrate them all.

That this idea was first floated in 2010 and still hasn't been implemented beggars belief.

Excellent...I brought this up when I failed to add the admin of my Sons' accounts to my own... I'm not really keen on giving young boys control of their own email never mind mobile account... and it would have helped when I set up my octogenarian technophobe mother (even more than me) with Giff Gaff too.... I resorted to asking my wife to help who also now wants to come to Giff Gaff.... I see trouble ahead :/

Right now I brought 3 ppl to GG and want to bring 3 more but they are spread over 3 accounts so I look like I'm slacking :)

Multi sim account? Yes please! I manage the sims for my family and for my employees work phones, it would be so much easier to have one or two master accounts....

So are we any closer to a family type account?

I run an emergency response group (volunteers / charity) and we have 30 members all using GG. One account to control all of these instead of us having 30 accounts would be so beneficial.

At the moment we are considering moving to another supplier simply because using a supplier like Zevvle will allow us to have that one account . . . . . we then top up the one account and all 30 users draw their data from that one pot.

An essential feature would to group all payments on one invoice - for business purposes.

yeah I think this is a good idea. Also to share minutes and data etc across a few sims? Ie me and my son share the allowance?
