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

By: jnm21 | 10-08-2013 19:51

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.

Tu Go for giffgaff would be great. Skype / Whatsapp / etc.. are just no good. The person calling me needs to be able to just dial my normal number and my phone will ring as long as I have wifi - even if I have no phone signal. Currently considering leaving giffgaff so that I can get this feature from O2 as I live in a rural area.

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

I left O2 because they withdrew the TuGo app. Admittedly GiffGaff don't have anything similar at the moment but the deal and the customer service is so much better. Imagine how many others would do the same if there was a TuGo for GiffGaff. It gets my vote!

I support the idea of wifi calls and texts but as this particular version of the idea specifies O2 TU Go which is closing on 30th November 2017 (as per the information in the O2 link cited in the message), GG will likley have to find another way to implement it!
