Wave New Alfisti

Hi everyone

I am a new Alfa owner of one week. Bought my new GT 1.9JTD through Auto Lusso and was extremely impressed by their service and friendly, thorough approach to their business. Coming from a tradition of German car ownership, but at last realising that at some stage in my life I really should let my heart rule my head, I have been very impressed with the build quality and faultless operation of everything so far. I know I'm a sad case but I really cannot resist having a quick look back at my car when I walk away as I believe the lines of the GT are so stunning - and in Stromboli it looks the business.

Has anyone got any suggestions about the vexed question of duplicate Sim cards so that you are not messing about with call forwarding or buying a new Sim number just for the car?

I have to say that after spending HOURS on the phone with all providers, I have an even lower opinion of them than before as they all want to be as obstructive as possible. Why, if you have an account with Orange can you not have two Sim cards for the same number?

Re: New Alfisti

Hi & welcome. I had Vodafones mutli-sim option enabled on my number when I had my previous car, one sim lived permanently in the car and was activated and deactivated by sending codes using the mobile phone. I'm not sure if this is only an option on corporate accounts though

Re: New Alfisti

Hi Tim (Mallard)

Glad to hear you are happy with the service we provided you.

With the sim card issue I advise our customers to get another number on there existing contract, then when in the car divert there normal phone to the new number (sim card) which is left in the card holder in the sat nav.

I think is the best way to deal with this issue but if there is a better solution to the problem I am all ears as I would like the advice I give to be the best.
