Settings for Iphones:

Internet Settings:

From your iPhone home screen, click on the icon "Settings" > click "General" > click "Network" > click "Cellular Data Network" > tap on the words next to "APN" and you'll then be able to edit the settings:

APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password (This is the word "password" not your giffgaff password)


MMS Settings:

From your iPhone home screen, click on the icon "Settings" > click "General" > click "Network" > click "Cellular Data Network" > scroll down the page a bit, you'll see "MMS" settings tap on the words next to "APN" and you'll then be able to edit the settings:

APN - giffgaff.com
Username - giffgaff
Password - password (This is the word "password" not your giffgaff password)
MMSC - http://mmsc-ac.mms.o2.co.uk:10021/mmsc
MMS Proxy - 193.113.200.195:8080
Max message size - 2097152
MMS UA Prof URL - [leave blank]


N.B. MMS will NOT work unless 3G is ON. (Settings > General > Network) Make sure Enable 3G is set to ON.
Also check the MMS button in the Settings. (Settings > Messages) Make sure MMS Messaging is set to ON.
And finally remember that picture messages cost 16p and are not included in any goodybags, i.e. you need credit!
