This one is simple and straight to the point!
When any of us members signed up to giffgaff we never imagined we'd at some point become part of a loan company and with the ideas of payback being awarded for getting loan customers and for giving advice looking like becoming a reality myself personally I don't want to be involved in something like this and I'm sure plenty of other members feel this way too?
I suggest you totally rethink your loan idea been associated with the giffgaff name and especially stop members giving any advice!
I could state a billion reasons for this but will stick to the obvious.
Your a phone company and that's what we joined. Please keep it that way.
There's another reason why we should be able to top up £5, for example if you got £10 airtime balance and you want the £12 goodybag and you can simply top up another £5. And buy it. I know you can top up £10 and do that same but sometimes you don't have that type of money or it looks too much.
So overall I think £5 top up should be available. It will benefit us (giffgaff members) and giffgaff (company) aswell.
So what do you think?
Considering that many people now have multiple devices and therefore need multiple SIM cards, I feel that the SIM activation pages are very unhelpful and need to be more user friendly and intuitive, thereby improving the member experience.
As it stands right now, a member with an existing SIM entering an activation code whilst logged/logging into their account is greeted by the SIM Replacement (SIM swap) page, with the very unhelpful statement:
"You cannot have two active SIMs. Activating a new SIM will deactivate your current SIM."
The member then has the option of continuing with a SIM swap, or backing out of the process. This results in members doing SIM swaps when they really wanted to change their number or register a second SIM, or backing out and not knowing where to go from here. This does nothing for the overall member experience, and causes members to become confused or frustrated by the whole process, and possibly them spending ages searching the knowledgebase or asking in the community.
I feel that this process could be much improved with a little modification to the current process flow, so that when an existing member enters the activation code from a new SIM they are presented with a series of option buttons or links, each taking or guiding them towards the correct path
|I want to:||Action|
|Move my number to a new SIM||Starts SIM swap procedure|
|Activate a replacement SIM||Explanation before starting SIM activation|
|Activate an extra SIM for another phone/device||Instructions to activate SIM on a new account|
|Change my number whilst keeping the same account||Instructions to change number via agents|
|Have an additional SIM on the same number||Explain this is not possible and give alternatives|
- Better overall member experience
- Reduction in erroneous SIM activations, therefore reduction in cancellation requests
- Reduction in Help & Support and agent questions relating to SIM activations

i think we should receive our voicemails free with or without credit as long as you have topped up in the last 3 months, there is nothing more frustrating than missing a call and you have used up all your mins, i think this could give giffgaff another edge again in the market.
EE tmobile orange vodafone others allows their members to upgrade
So my idea is
Giffgaff should allow us to do payg upgrade with carphonewarehouse or giffgaff it's self (like 20% off on selected phones basic ones mostly)
online account statements
this would benefit alot of us ,we would like to know who we talk to the most, what we use our services on. phone calls, texts, and internet
just a simple statement at the end of each month telling us who we have text,called and what we've used our internet on
because it will all be online it shouldn't cost a thing as theres no paper so its no extra cost.
i have at times looked at my balance on my account and have had missing minutes and texts any i would like to find out where they have gone, ive had people text and call me who i dont even know. people who i dont speak to. this statement would be also good for parents to keep an eye on their childrens usage. what do you guys think post your comments below suggest more ideas. Other networks offer this service
Wouldn't it be easier for giffgaff and better for the users if giffgaff automatically generated a PDF and emailed it to you when you report your phone and your sim as lost and stolen. Would presumably save the agents time. Should be simple for them to set up. The person would then just need to forward it to their insurer. As long as it has a clear line at the start "we noticed you reported your phone/sim as lost/stolen so thought we would forward you this letter just in case you need it to forward to your insurer" then it would be clear to anyone who didn't want it or didn't know about it.
I think that people who are with giffgaff for extended periods, (e.g, 3+years) should start to see some discounts. For example, for each year you are with gg you will recieve 1% discount. I just think because you see people leaving in forums and it seems only the people that are helping are getting payback, when in fact some people are not technically gifted therefore have not got the capaabilities to help on the community, even though they value gg as much as the VIP's?
currently if you are just a payg customer you only get 3g data as standard.
The only way of getting 4g on payg is to buy a 4g bag and then afterwards if your using credit for data you continue to get 4g unless you buy a 3g bag then it reverts back to 3g by default.
So my idea is simply make it that if the member has a 4g device that when they activate there new GG sim using credit for data gives them 4g by default.
After all gg's data is very expensive to use on payg so it's only fair that members get there money's worth!
Your comments and suggestions are welcome and don't forget to kudos the idea if you want to see it happen!
Thanks for reading
This idea as suggested by @n4tz got me thinking that this whole offer and the way giffgaff have gone about it is all wrong!
To anyone that doesn't know the offer is for some members that have been selected will get 1000 payback points for each activation they get in the month of March instead of the normal 500 points we get.
Now I understand that there will be reasons why giffgaff have decided to use only certain members but I think this offer totally goes against what giffgaff stands for and is separating members as some are getting 100% more for the same thing which is unfair to any members not selected!
So a simple one really..... Please try and work fast and make this offer open to everybody and start it again for these members.
Surely it's a win win idea one for giffgaff as they'll get more new custom and two all members will be happy they've been given the same opportunity as the others to take advantage of this great offer!
Right thanks for reading my idea and I welcome your feedback and comments and don't forget if you want to support this idea and see it happen then click the orange kudos!
Quite a simple idea this one (Possibly..), when we get our usage statements each month it contains our 'Extra Savings' and our 'Top called/texted numbers' (As shown at the top of the image below) but it doesn't actually tell you how many times you have called/texted giffgaff numbers or who your top contacts on giffgaff were.
So my idea is to add another section to the usage statement called something like 'Top called/texted giffgaff numbers' and have the same information that was provided about non-giffgaff numbers, but for giffgaff numbers.
I have created what it may look like below (Do I get extra points for that?) but my usage statement is broken anyway so it didn't even show me my normal called/texted numbers..
You could also have something alongside texting 'PLAN' to 43430 (Which texts you your reccomended plan alongside your last 30 days usage) where you text 'GGINFO' (Or something..) to the same number but it gives you information about giffgaff numbers that have been texted/called.
All comments/ideas appreciated
Thanks to @bethanaaay for the help!
So my idea is to keep the payback points rather than 100 points GIVE LIKE 50 POINTS PER QUIZZES and as they move on increase the points so it will grab the members attention and would make them do the quiz and hopefully they will learn something which they can share with the community
Start from like 25 payback points for bronze quizzes
50/75 for silver 100/150 for gold 200/300 diamond and it goes on
I think It will benefit the members and the whole community aswell
What do you think?
Goodybags are supposed to last from the day of purchase to midnight on the day of expiry. However, if you queue a goodybag, the queued bag can start any time between 10pm and midnight on the day of expiry, meaning you can lose up to 2hours of goodybag allowance, from both the expiring bag and the queued bag.
For example, if I have 30 minutes left in my current bag and make a call at 21.45 that lasts for 25 minutes, I would expect to have all 25 minutes to come from my current bag. Unfortunately, if my queued bag starts at 22.00 I will use 10 minutes from the new bag. This means I'm now effectively 10minutes down on my new bag.
My idea is simply to have queued goodybags start at midnight so you don't accidentally eat into next months allowances
If you look at the goodybags there's 6 (3G) goodybags and 3 (4G) goodybags
So my idea is
There should be more gigabags avaliable. And change the price for gigabags and make it little bit cheaper so it fits in with the goodybags.
£5 - 1GB
£7.50 - 2GB
£15 - 6/10GB
My main point is that there's only 2 gigabags and 9 goodybags
So there should be more gigabags avaliable at a low price
Atleast add another 1/2
This is another idea that has been brought up several times in various forms (see usage-history tag), but
haven't yet made it to these pages. I feel very strongly about this and would like to promote this also here:
the idea is to implement a 'Usage history' or 'Itemized billing' under My_giffgaff on the webpage.
I prefer the 'Usage history', as i think the important aspects is that it enables one to monitor usage
(data is transferred, but of course also calls, and txt messages), not only the bill/balance at the end.
It would be a feature that underpins transparency and is very much in line with the philosophy
of giffgaff as an internet based and community oriented company.
right this is just a quick one
With the problems we've been having with data speeds over the last fifteen months and the fact that we know giffgaff don't have enough bandwidth for there existing customers I think giffgaff need to stop wasting money on tv campaigns which isn't cheap and why get new customers when they can't cope with the members they already have and spend the money where it's really needed on improving the service for the members you've already got?
I did do a search and I found this idea but I believe mine is different :
So if you think giffgaff should do this then show your support
