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.

Agreed with xollobru, you knew it had been posted before so why do it? It clogs up the board with the same ideas every day and also dilutes votes! Read this idea so many times I'm seeing it in my sleep!

I'm not even sure but your PBX account might actually be against the terms if GG service ?

Whilst I see your point and it is valid , I think merging 4 into 1 account will only cause more top up mistakes and moaning.

Sorry mate

Duplicate ideas only dilute the available support weakening the chances of success and adding to the mountain of them that overwhelms any rare original ideas!

Members should support the following idea that is being looked into by giffgaff:
