Re: Data settings Android!!

In the APN section, I choose the 02 Pay&GO (the only one showing, if you cant see it do a reset to default) so that it had the circle light with a blue light. I then enter it and edited it, now this has never worked any other time. But this time I left the name as

O2 Pay&Go and then edited the rest to... APN: giffgaff.com Username: giffgaff Password: password MMSC: http:// mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002 MMS Proxy: 193.113.200.195 MMS Port: 8080 MCC: 234 MNC: 10

Now click the right hand key and choose save, restart your mobile and you should be connected to giffgaff.

If you unsure how to find the place to so this them please try this (may vary per model): Access settings, this come be done by placing your finger at top of screen anf moving downwards or by pressing the icon above the home button. Once in settings, you will see wirless&networks, click on more. From here select Mobile Networks, then Access Point Names. Now follow information as above to create APN. I hope that these instructions will help you get your Xperia mobile APN for giffgaff up and running.
