Calls and texts from laptops and tablets: O2 Tu Go for giffgaff?

Just came on here to search for & give Kudos to any suggestions for this - the only thread I found was back in March when the feature was unknown & wasn't picked up - currently only available to o2 pay monthly , but this feature would go down a storm with GG users.

 

I have been testing it today & have to say (in agreement with a very good Android app review) that it does seem to work better on higher end phones (could not call on my SG mini, but on the SG note it works perfectly).  This may be the thing that brought me back to GG after the data charging fiasco.

Vodafone users looking jealous!

Please can you seriously consider this one?  This plus the improved £10 GB could make me consider trying GG again.

Living in a rural area, I'd be keen for this to go ahead...

Its a really useful facility for anyone like me whose mobile phone wont work for calls indoors from the main mast because of poor quality signal in the new forest and would give me VOIP instantly. I hope GiffGaff will introduce it

Yes, that's a good idea!

Excellent idea! We could call, text and receive calls even when network coverage is totally off. Or while visiting Madagascar or Vanuatu where the roaming charges are extremely high...

My reception is iffy when indoors (Rural area woes), this would be a major boost in my decision to go with GiffGaff for more than just data.

This is a must for lots of places in rural districts with zero cover
