Email set up Nokia ASHA 201

I transfered my SIM to a new phone yesterday and have internet, calls and SSM working fine. I recieved a text with settings from GiffGaff fine. When I go into mail in order to set up my emails it asks me to read service terms etc first and then click accept. When I do it shows as checking for mail service updates and then comes up with an exclamation mark and 'communication error, try again later'. Is this a problem with my phone do you think?

What email provider are you trying to use? Looks like the settings for that are not quite right.

Unfortunately, I am not familiar with the phone, but here is a link to a manual for a 200 series phone:

Edit: Oops, looks like a 300 series phone, but hopefully similar.

Re: Email set up Nokia ASHA 201

Just an additional piece of advice:

 

A lot of Nokia phones require you to select the giffgaff APN settings as the default for all applications. This can sometimes be hidden away under Games or similar. Hope you manage to find someone with the phone, but otherwise try your manual or phone the Nokia support line or website/forums.
