Giffgaff carrier name

Status: Idea Vault

In these modern days, it is all about  trend  setting and being different, by having GiffGaff instead of 02-uk as a carrier name it would stand out of the crowd , especially on an Iphone 

Anybody agree ?

agree, it does on most phones not iphones, though thats apple for ya

Due to the way that iphone settings are controlled through ipcc files and itunes, this is outside of giffgaff's control. Attempts have been made to get apple to allow a seperate giffgaff carrier file to no avail

I'd agree with lordofangels - I put my giffgaff sim into an old Nokia 6020 from back in 2004 and it picked up the network being giffgaff rather than o2

I'm not sure what trend setting is happening. This was implemented on other phones somewhere between 15 and 10 years ago. .
