Connecting my iPhone 3Gs to the internet

Hi I posted this query to a member:-

I have recently subscribed to an automatic topping up of my Account and had this confirmed! When trying to connect using 3G I get the message - Could not activate mobile data network - You are not subscribed to a mobile data service. What does this mean? How does one get this service on my fully paid up GiffGaff account?

 

Can you please help me?

 

Many thanks

 

George Bowie The reply gave me all the settings but suggested I contact the Community for technical advice as to HOW to enter the settings into my phone. I am an OLD CODGER and not very tech savvy.

 

 

 

Can anyone help?

 

Many thanks,

 

George Bowie

Re: Connecting my iPhone 3Gs to the internet

To use and iPhone on the network, first try texting SETTINGS to 2020, which should sort it, however, if it doesn't, then try checking:
