Re: APN

[ Bonner's Internet Guide ]

1, Text "settings to "2020" ( Sets up MMS & The Internet Settings )

If the above works then it should also install the mms settings aswel and once you save/install either settings then I would advise to turn your phone etc off for a minute and then power your phone back on and then you should be set up and ready to surf the net....


2, If Texting to 2020 does not work for you then please read below

3, Here are the basic APN Settings. Which "should" work on all phones.

[ Manual Input ]

Try these settings > Go to

- Internet Settings or Data Package

- Wireless & Networks

- Or Internet Profile


Then select Mobile Network or Connection / 'Cellular Data' / Connectivity or Internet Profile / Data Connection

Make a new connection from the menu and create a new apn and enter >

Connection Name: giffgaff - GPRS

APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com

Proxy Server Address: 193.113.200.195

Proxy Port:8080

Login - Username: giffgaff

Password: password (type the word password)

MCC: 234
MNC: 10

[ MMS Settings ]

- Go to SMS - MMS Multimedia Settings

- Create a new profile

And Enter > The Below Setup

Try these settings first >

Access point name: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password ( just type the name password )
Authentication: Normal
URL address: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
Port: 8080

Once applied power off your phone for 30 sec and then power back up and you should be ready to go


If the above settings never worked then please try the below settings


Connection Name: giffgaff - MMS
APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff

MNC: 10
APN type: mms

Once applied power off your phone for 30 sec and then power back up and you should be ready to go


MMS also cost 16p each to send and they are not included in any goodybags
