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.

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

I live in a rural area with no mobile coverage. This would be a fabulous thing to offer, because right now I'm not getting anything like enough value from my mobile phone. To have people be able to call me on my mobile when I'm at home around wifi would be awesome.

Do it please.

Totally agree, a much needed feature.

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.

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

As someone who has a home which seems to block all phone signal id appreciate this. I was previously with three and their three in touch app was the only way I could make and receive calls and texts

GG is behind the game as long as it does not offer this feature
