that would be a good shout. Unfortunately, I don’t think it would be implemented as giffgaff piggybacks, rather than being a separate network.
However, if you want to suggest it, make a suggestion in labs. It would certainly be a lot better than the FaceTime that iOS uses. In fact, it may even improve the connection 😀
Contribute is the correct place to thrash out an idea before posting in Labs.
Then, only after doing a search to see if it is an original idea
I do believe that O2 once had such a service but no longer - so it's unlikely that giffgaff would be doing this.
There are so many way to use data (WiFi) to message people these days, and network coverage is improving by the day, that I guess it's something that we will now never see.
o2 do offer wificalling, I think you’re confusing the old calling app called TuGo (which they stopped offering when proper wificalling was implemented) with native wificalling which is a feature built into the phones that support it.
Having said that, unfortunately o2 only offer it to their contract customers so it’s unlikely they’ll ever consider giving it to Giffgaff customers before their own PAYG customers or Tesco Mobile contract customers.
Glad gg is seriously considering this!!
Unless I’ve missed an announcement this week I’m not sure where you get that idea, GG hasn’t made any statement about considering it (and it’s outside their ability to roll out).
Until o2 allow their own payg customers and Tesco Mobile customers to use it, GG customers have no chance...
