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.

Sounds a perfect solution, & to transfer credit, or unused data or minutes to another SIM. I think it's Vodaphone, or EE that are currently advertising free data transfer.

I’ve just joined and have needed 2 accounts. One for me and one for my son. If I move my daughter over I’ll need a third, not bothering! I’d love this.

Great idea. It'd work for me as I have 3 Sims and had to register each one as a separate user. Combining them would save a lot of hassle, and if, say, some kind of'master goodybag' could be made available then things would become even simpler.

Would be great to manage an additional SIM for a security system from my main account.
