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 would have been so useful when i was looking after accounts for 2 kids, my hubby and me, my 2 parents plus an "emergency" handset we kept in case one of us needed to borrow it - frequently used by my kids when they left their phones on the school bus...

I've had a TERRIBLE MEMORY all my life, which is why I was RUBBISH at History as a Schoolchild, as it is Nothing But REMEMBERING STUFF, and as the Years have Rolled By i's now Worse than Ever ! I have a Notebook FULL of Login Names, Passwords, PINS and Memorable Names and Places - that also includes GAPS as sometimes I can FORGET a Password in the Minutes in between Creating it and Getting to the Right Page in my Notebook to Record it.

So needing MULTIPLE Account Names and Passwords for the Phones I've already Moved Over to GIFFGAFF is ALREADY a PROBLEM !

ANYTHING that REDUCES the Amount of STUFF I need to Remember (or Write Down) gets TOP MARKS from me.

It will also be BETTER for Checking my SPEND on CALLS & TEXTS, and having just ONE CREDIT ACCOUNT to cover ALL of my Numbers, instead of tying up More Money by having Credit Accounts for Each Number !

I would love to give my children some of my data, as I never use mine all but they are always running out. Just can’t afford to up their goody bags.

Just forget the App and use the web from your wallet/password app. I have four accounts.
