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.

Imagine that something like this (an idea suggetions many many times before) would result in more payback staying in giffgaff

Maybe it's not so inconvenient to log in and out of two accounts?  I have two sims as I keep a spare phone for (my frequent) overseas visitors to use, and find no issue with logging in to two separate accounts.  Not really needed....?

Please search for and support existing ideas rather than posting yet another duplicate even further diluting any support and reducing the chances of success, just one existing idea:

A quick search would have revealed that this idea has been proposed a number of times before.

You might not be aware, but it's better to upvote existing ideas rather than open new ideas that are duplicates. Giffgaff looks at ideas with lots of upvotes (you're looking at 50+ required) when it decides what to implement. Creating a new idea that's a duplicate of an old one actually decreases the chance of either idea getting implemented, as the upvotes will end up getting split between the two.
