I have just been looking at the article below and loved it particuarly at the table outlining the fact that buying outright is cheaper, its an excersise i do before making a phone purchase.
I thought it would be great for GG to produce a calculator, so that cusotmers can key in their current or top 3 packages they are researching such as initial phone cost, Mins, Texts and Data and automatically calculates the tarrif cost and 12 & 24 month total cost, it can then automatically include the equvalent purchase of a giffgaff phone and goodybag.
A link or button called "Is GiffGaff Cheaper?" or similar could be included on every phone detail page or a simple static table with 3-4 illustrations
We kind of do this for the PAYG side of things with comparisons to the other major networks but maybe also be put on the goodybag pages too.
I was just thinking, i'd love to purchase one through giffgaff and i'm sure others would too!
The handset has a premium edge to edge look but a down to earth cost. I think it would be perfect for the budget concious giffgaffers out there, and people who just want something different.
Sharp haven't announced plans to release it outside of Japan or the US yet, but maybe giffgaff could strike up a relationship with Sharp in order to bring the phone over to the UK. Possibly it could even become a giffgaff exclusive!
Aquos Crystal on the official Sharp US website:
As a website and graphic designer I have to create a variety of banners for clients. Quite recenctly I've started designing some for the giffgaff community (see here) and will continue to do so to assist my fellow users.
It would be ideal if giffgaff could create a section on the community to allow users to add they're designs for others to use. It would also be ideal if giffgaff could produce/provide some resources such as logos and psd files.
Hope i can gain some backing,
Why not check out my other ideas?
Thanks for having the time to check out my idea,
We know they are charged for traffic, line rental etc and then there's upkeep costs and also people have to be paid.
We all know that people need to make a living, there's no shame in that, we are happy to pay those people through our contribution.
So, how about we use the power and skill of this community to advance this network and service provision as a whole.
We already get money off for contributing here....
It would be great if the data was just a little bit higher on the £5 goodybag. The 20MB that is offer on the goodybag is very low and even for every light users of mobile data, you can very easy burn right through that. I think the texts and minutes are just find, but I think the data needs to be 50mb or 100mb for this day and age.
What do you guy/gals think ??
I guess in 2014 we all are cursed by our dependency on WhatsApp, skype, emails, etc.
Don't you think it would be a great idea if giffgaff joined what major phone netwoks already do and offered roaming data bundles?
We do need affordable data fees when going abroad!
It has been suggested in this thread Click Here About getting a member to be the voice of giffgaff on the voice mail and other menus side of things on this inetwork run by us. I did the voice over in the video as well as many other vids already. We are not too sure if this is definitely possible or not but I've been asked by a couple of peeps to drum up support Please let me know your thoughts and kudos if you think it would be a 'marvellous' idea! Cheers,

This is a very small and fussy sounding idea but it is part of a communications problem that giffgaff have never really fully cracked, namely the relationship between credit and goodybags. From the forum it is clear many people still seem to think for example that topping up the necessary amount will give you the benefits of a certain priced goodybag without actually converting the credit, or that by selecting a goodybag you keep the credit for additional payg credit.
