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.

A search before posting would have revealed numerous existing ideas that you could vote for rather than posting yet another copy and further diluting any support, like:

Whereas I agree with the principal as mentioned this is an idea which has been suggested many times.

A quick search would have revealed that this idea has been proposed a number of times before. Giffgaff's rates are already very competitive and any "family discount" would inevitably become the new normal rate, as members would band together to form groups of people and open family accounts.

It's much better to search for existing ideas rather than re-post the same one over and over. Ideas need a certain number of upvotes in order to be considered, and adding multiple copies of the same idea means you end up splitting the votes.

A quick search would have revealed that this idea has been proposed a number of times before. It isn't viable because it would require substantial system development at giffgaff and when there's the simple workaround of creating a new account, it's not a very high priority.
