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.

I have three different numbers on three different accounts and it is a pain to manage them.  In the past I have recommened GiffGaff to friends, mostly selfemployed tradesmen, but most have not taken it up because they have multiple numbers and do not want to have multiple accounts.

Individuals in a company would probably want their own profile, and the ability to get Payback for themselves. But companies would like their employees accounts to be centralised. If there's demand, then why not. more money for giffgaff.

Similar to many of the comments here, I'd like to open accounts for my parents and top them up myself and it would be brilliant for it all to be under one account.

Will confuse alot of the members so I would suggest if you want something like this then make new account but using similar username like account 1 "xxxxx1" account 2 "xxxxx2x" which will make life more easier and avoid confusion
