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. I have an always on recurring goody bag as I needed Internet access for my work. I have the sim in my MIFI TP link router so I will never have the ability to use the free minutes for a standard mobile phone.. I have a EE mobile contract also- I would love to ditch the EE contract. If I could have a second sim linked to my always on goody bag-at little or no cost.

Yes please. This would greatly simplify things for me.

I have quite a few sims and if they could be accessed from one dashboard/app it would save me having to sign in multiple times.

I also have to admit forgetting user names etc on occasions (for alarm panels etc) and have ended up just activating a new sim (somewhat wasteful, I know) This may seem silly but just was easier. If all accounts are accessible on one login would just be so much better.

"Not for me" only selected because there was no reference to 4G security cameras and thier required SIM.

It would be useful if I had one account for my phone SIM and the 4G Camera SIM as one account.

One to think about for the future ?
