Android settings:

Go to Settings > More Settings > Mobile network > Access Point Names. Press the Menu button and select New APN.

Enter the following: Name: giffgaff --- APN: giffgaff.com --- Username: giffgaff --- Password: password --- MMSC: http://mmsc-ac.mms.o2.co.uk: 10021/mmsc --- MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195 ---MMS port: 8080

Now press the Menu button again and select Save. Tap the circle next to the profile named giffgaff so a green dot appears.Turn the phone off and switch it back on again.

Your phone is now set up for giffgaff's internet and MMS settings.
