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.
why not name the goodybags, heres my idea for names:
£5 hockey cockey (thats what it is called anyway)
all the above is names of dances so there is a link to why there called that, just think it could add a bit of fun and might be easier for some to have a name for there goodybag other than the price because it stands out a bit.
also to buy goodybags with your airtime credit texting the name of the goodybag you want then it's deducted from your airtime credit, this could also simplyfy things, cause it can be a bit of a hassle buying a goodybag with certain phones in certain places.
To elaborate on a post about using goody bags in the EU when the new laws come in, i think that the use of goodybags should be allowed in the EU for free, and when travelling further afield (for example USA, Brazil, AUS etc.). you can keep your goodybag for a set charge per day or per week. For example to keep your goody bag abroad £1/day and £5/week. I think this would be welcomed greatly by the community esplecially by people, such as myself, who travel quite often.
Thanks very much, hope this is considered.
So my idea is that giffgaff provide sim packages for members or giffgaff to give to shops to either sell or give away alongside posters advertizing the prices and goodybags. If the members gave the sims to the shop it would enable the members to get more payback and to get more people to join giffgaff.
I have seen other networks using this just to sell sims and it would make getting hold of a giffgaff sim a lot easier if you loose your sim and have to get a replacement.
I hope you like the idea!!
I've got an idea that giffgaff should use a signal booster and use it on o2 masts. It would say“ giffgaff by Telefonica ". If giffgaff manages to boost their 3g signal, it would be a lot more good for people with 2g signals. I know it costs too much but its a good thing for internet access.
It's great that giffgaff to giffgaff calls and texts are free (subject to having topped up within a 3 month period) and personally, I like the notification saying the text is free (I know many do not like the notification).
My idea if that there are variations on the notification you get from giffgaff saying the text or call was free. This would allow members to select from a variety of text message notifications to suit their own personalty/circumstances. As we're all the BOSS, it could be good to give a little more control on the notifications you receive.
I would suggest that giffgaff could come up with possibly 5-10 notification message options for members to choose from and members could alter these by the normal method of changing their preferences https://giffgaff.com/profile/phone-settings.
The standard default option could remain as "Woohoo that call/text was free"
It could also be good if members could input their own message - this could be a good way of getting others to join giffgaff as they could get a silly message they have typed in, appearing each time they send a text or call someone else on giffgaff.
It would be important that if people wrote their own notification that they are made to tick/check a box saying they take responsibility for any issues that arise from any offensive comments they may add to the notification and the notification is self generated and not the view or opinion of giffgaff etc etc
IF people would like to comment on my idea that would be great to gauge interest and support and if you think it is good, then please do click the KUDOS button.
IF you have suggestions of what the notification could be, please include in your reply posting. Any changes to the notifications could be implemented after a survey of members as to their preferred range of notification message.
