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 propose to offer a shared network resources for all these SIMs too. This would give additional consumer flexibility on one side and additional income for GG if to keep free air-time/texts only for family SIMs on the other.

This could give additional flexibility for SMEs too as well as better predictions for GG in part of how much resources to purchase from parental network for consumers.

Grest idea and would be of great benefit to many people, especially parents and those to top up for their elderly relatives.

Great idea, Implementing this would be good for me also, I manage my parents accounts (seniors), they're not very good with technolog. I set their accounts up for them and pay for them, I like the idea of allowing another user to access your profile, option 2, the parent and child method.
