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 also think that this would be a good idea as I have another phone that I would like to use with another sim card. It would be much easier if I were able to manage the new sim from my existing account, also one less set of login credentials to have to manage.

Please make this happen soon! I have one teenager with Giff Gaff and the second one will be getting their phone soon, it would make life so much easier for me if I could manage both their accounts of mine instead of trying to remember which password for which user name for which phone!!

giffgaff Multi account is what is needed and sooner rather than later, I would say a lot of parents are happy to have their kids on giffgaff, but get miffed (like me), by having to constantly login and out of the different accounts rather than having one single GG hub account...

I'm new to Giff Gaff, having ordered sims for my daughters, but found it a bit odd that I couldn't manage both sims via my 'Adult/Parent' account. Being as I am the administrator of both my daughters acounts, (also my son when he is old enough to have a mobile phone of his own), I have to keep login in and out of said accounts to monitor them. which is a pain, so managing multiple accounts from a central hub account would be much easier, and makes much more sense....

ideal for family members and for work as all Giffgaff calls are free to each other.
