If you have multiple family sims with a monthly data allowance in a group plan, some sims may run out of data while on other sims, there is remaining data.

Please allow group data allowance to be shared / transferred / pooled.

An enquiry has been made about this at least once before:

@The_Observer  Just wondering if this would require considerable tinkering with the main Smarty software to allow it. That would end up costing them and so I can see them being less than keen.

@MSF Acknowledge that my original proposal might require major modifications to core metering and billing infrastructure. If so, here is another, related suggestion that might be easier to implement: rollover of unused data from one month to the next. That could be applied to a two-month window.

@The_Observer I'm sure that most of these suggestions are good ones from the customers perspective.

I guess it will all come down to the financial wizards doing a balancing act between likely loss of profit if they bring in these ideas versus loss of customer base if they don't.

I think it is important not to lose sight of the fact that it's all about the bottom line in the end.
