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.

It won’t be soon, if at all.

I have found myself having to manage accounts for people who have little capacity to manage their bills and online accounts themselves, so at the moment I have to log in as them. It would be good to be able to do it from a master account.

I believe there is capacity to handle multiple accounts via the app. There is not (and probably will not be) the facility to share allowances or such like, but you can easily switch accounts (apparently) in the app. I am unable to download the app as my device is the wrong sort.

This suggestion goes back years - Can't believe you still haven't done it yet.

If it were financially feasible it might have been implemented by now. However, just because gimme gimme members think it would benefit them does not make this a commercially sound proposal!

GREAT IDEA. I LIKE THE IDEA OF SHARING DATA, AS I DON'T USE MUCH AND MY DAUGHTER .... WELL, YOU'VE GUESSED IT. ALSO, I CAN HANDLE PAYMENTS UNTIL SHE HAS GOT A JOB.
