Here's the settings for the iPhone 5c/5s


please can you first reset the network settings by going into 


Settings ~ General ~ Reset ~ Reset Network Settings

(once pressed the iPhone should reboot by itself )


Depending on your iPhone iOS version and international language ""British English"" Or ""English""

iOS 7
Settings~Mobile~Mobile Data Network
Settings~Cellular~Cellūlar Data Network



•username =vertigo

•password =password


MMS Settings



•username =vertigo

•password =password


•mms Proxy =

•mms Max Message Size = 2097152


After editing the settings just press the Home Button (don't press the reset tab) ,Now please reboot your iPhone


MMS will NOT work unless 4G (3G) is ON


Lastly check that the MMS button in the Settings. (Settings~Messages) Make sure MMS Messaging is set to ON.


And remember that MMS / Picture Messages cost 16p (24p for none uk networks )and are not included in any Goodybag ( Mobile Data must be on to receive MMS messages)

Re: I can't use internet on my new iphone 5C

Please disregard the people saying to text "settings" to 2020 as this does not work on iPhones.


Instead, tap settings, tap Cellular, tap Cellular Data Network, and enter username vertigo, APN, and password = password (literally the word "password", not your giffgaff password).


Your phone may display "mobile data" instead of cellular depending on your settings.

All my posts are specific to you; I never copy/paste from a script.

If you need an agent, use and choose the relevant category. Please refrain from using the link, the SIM limit form, or "choosing 30" from the drop-down menu.
