Free Call Divert to Landlines

Free Call Divert to Landlines

Years ago there used to be a service called 'Orange Everyphone'. I've just re-discovered that it does still exist, but it's only available to business customers.


See here:


The idea was that you could divert your calls to a landline or another mobile on the same network, free of per minute charges.


You could also dial a short number from your handset e.g. 330, or 07xxx xxx330 from a landline or another mobile to set the divert up, if for example you had left your phone in the office, or at home. - I have noticed a similar idea has recently been posted up in the ideas forum!!


Obviously, the termination fee GiffGaff receives for calls to it's mobile range dwarfs that of the termination fee for diverting to a landline, hence I feel this service is not only useful, but actually viable.


Orange also charges a one off 8p(ish) charge for setting these diverts by charging to call the 330 short code number, or if setting up from the landline they receive termination revenue by using 07xxx xxx 330.


This could make GiffGaff money whilst providing a service users are asking you for!


**Please kudos if you like this idea, and would like to be able to divert your calls to landline numbers for free!**

You can do this, with inclusive minutes. Smiley Wink I wouldn't expect anything done for free though, and good, we are here to make money. The theory is nice, but doubtful!

Not for free, but i would pay for this service.


I remember Everyphone as well as WildFire! ("Here I am!") which I used to make extensive use of.  I also remember when sending and receiving text messages was free.


I'm with you on this one, it'd be a great service to even just provide a dial-in number you could use to set up a remote divert on your phone (eg when it's run out of battery or out of range as mine frequently is).    I'm not aware that O2 (GG'd parent network) has any form of similar service at present.


I don't think charging diverted portion of the calls is too expensive at 8ppm, although I would like to see this 'free' to VOIP lines.

@nutella - Inclusive minutes or goodybag minutes aren't free though. @radicallight - Certainly with you on the free diversion to VOIP/SIP. I feel that 8ppm to other mobile networks is great value, but do believe diversion to landlines should be free as i've already said it is more than covered by the termination rate giffgaff receives.
Yes I know that, thats why I said it can be done with the inclusive. Im always going to stick with you cant get everything for free here. And that profit needs to be made. im out.

I think this would be a great way for giffgaff to make profit. More people would use it than if it was charged for, which giffgaff could really cash in on.


To nutellajunkie and jamesy, remember that call diverting to landlines, or other O2 phones, is quite profitable - receiving the full mobile termination rate and paying almost nothing (on-net and landline calls are practically free)

@fahadsadah - My point exactly.


@nutellajunkie - It would be 'free' to the GiffGaff user, but GiffGaff would still be making a profit from the termination rates!


That's the whole point, GiffGaff users get another much wanted service and for *free*, and yet still it actually pay's GiffGaff a profit - It's win-win all round!


And... It would be another advantage to being with GiffGaff, as no other network offers this service (unless you're an orange business customer.)


Well come on gg.......Lets have a diffinitive answer on a good idea.......


I already use caller divert.. just set up caller divert then! if its free its free, if its not, its not.
