How to set up 3G on my iPhone

Hello,
Please can anyone help
I have recently joined giffgaff, but when I transferred my number over I was away from home.
Giffgaff sent me a link to set up my Internet settings, but it said I needed to be connected to the wi-fi, so I couldn't do it.
When I got home I clicked on the link and it told me it had expired and I needed to request another, but I don't know how to?

Re: How to set up 3G on my iPhone

INTERNET AND MMS SETTINGS
Navigate to:
Settings>Messages
Make sure MMS Messaging is enabled (if you wish to use this feature)
Now navigate to:
Settings>General>Network>Mobile/Cellular Data
Make sure Cellular/Mobile Data is enabled. Then input these settings:

APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
Visual Voicemail: (giffgaff does not support Visual Voicemail)

APN: Leave Blank
Username: Leave Blank
Password: Leave Blank

MMS:
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
MMSC: http://mmsc-ac.mms.o2.co.uk:10021/mmsc
MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195:8080
MMS Max Message Size: 2097152
MMS UA Prof URL: Leave Blank
Then you must power off your phone and switch it on again. The Internet and MMS settings are now complete.
N.B. If the Cellular/Mobile Data tab does not appear, see this guide: http://www.bit.ly/iphonenocellulardata

If your internet still doesn't work after inputting the settings, use this guide:https://sites.google.com/site/idevicegiffgaffsettings/alternative
If you have problems with certain apps such as YouTube, Whatsapp etc. not working properly, see this guide:http://j.mp/iphonestreamingguide

VOICEMAIL
Voicemail is enabled by default. To disable it dial 1626. To re-enable it dial 1616. To ring voicemail, the number is 443 (the original voicemail button won't work).
If you would like an easy access method to your voicemail, follow these steps:
On Safari, go to:
www.giffgaff.com/iphone/voicemailicon
Press cancel on the prompt to call 443 that comes up. Then press the or button at the bottom of the page, and press Add to Home Screen.
Press Done, and you should have an icon to call your voicemail. Alternatively, a good substitute for Visual Voicemail is �HulloMail�. You can download this on the App Store if you wish.

To find out how much credit you have left, dial *100#
To find out how many minutes you have left in your goodybag, dial *100*7#
To find out how many texts you have left in your goodybag (Hokey Cokey users only), dial *100*5#
Your iDevice will say O2-UK as the carrier, because giffgaff uses O2's signal. If you would like to change the text to giffgaff or make the original Voicemail button work on the iPhone, there are long winded ways of doing these things which require jailbreaking. PM me if interested.
Lastly, if you have any questions about using an iPhone on giffgaff (or just about giffgaff in general), don't hesitate to PM me (go here: http://bit.ly/pmwman2).
Enjoy giffgaff!

Go to settings> general> network> cellular data network, and edit accordingly:

Celluar data:
Apn: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password

Visual voicemail: There are no settings for this so the voicemail button wont work just dial 443

MMS:
Apn: giffgaff.com

Password: password
MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS Proxy:193.113.200.195:8080
MMS max message size: 307200
Mms ua prof url: leave this one 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!

Then turn the phone off and the on again and the settings should be saved.

Re: How to set up 3G on my iPhone

Have you installed the correct giffgaff settings for your data ??

 

Texting " Settings " to 2020 Won't work with iPhones ...

 

Check your settings against these ...???

 

There are three iPhones in my family that use these settings successfully. (3Gs, 4, 4s)

 

You need to install these manually...

 

 

 

Go to " Settings " ....

          " General " ....

          " Network " ....

Then  " Mobile Data Network "

 

Mobile Data



APN ... giffgaff.com

Username ... giffgaff

Password ... password

Visual Voicemail (just leave as is, giffgaff do not support visual voicemail)

 

MMS



APN ... giffgaff.com

Username ... giffgaff

Password ... 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 (just leave blank)



Do NOT press the " Reset Settings " button when you’ve done this.

 

Once the settings are in, turn your iphone off ( via the red slider ) till the screen is completely blank. Then reboot. If you do not see the apple logo, the settings will not stick.

 

Then, press “ Settings “…“ Messages “ and ensure that " MMS Messaging " button is set to ON.

 

In " settings " " messages " turn imessages on.

 

Please also ensure that the " Enable 3G " button and the " Mobile Data " button are set to ON. (Press Settings, then General, then Network).

 

Then " Settings " ... " Phone " .... And check " My Number " is correct

 

 

 

Also note that Picture messages cost 16p and are not included in any goodybags.





Hope this helps.     :smileyhappy:
