Internet & MMS Settings for Nokia C2 - Please Help

Hi all, i was wondering if anyone can help. I signed up for giff gaff last week and on my phone at the time i received a text with the settings in and the internet worked.

 

Today, i have bought a Nokia c2 and cant get the internet to work. i know my giff gaff card is fine, i tried texting "settings" to 2020 but it cant send me the settings and the usual manual way of entering the settings which is easy to setup normally is very hard to do because off the stupid C2 menu system.

 

i was wondering if anyone had figured it out, i know the phone is at fault, but there doesnt seem to be anywhere to enter APN details etc, just to view the 02 ones

 

thanks

Hi there,

It should be in the connection menu under "destinations" or similar. That should let you view settings and configure the default.

With some phones, the giffgaff one is not set as default or top priority. Meaning it looks like it isn't there.

Also, MMS may be in undefined. Move it to another folder.

Can I just ask if you've managed to get this sorted? I too have just bought a C2 and have tried everything, but just cannot get the internet set up. If you've managed it, could you let me know how you did it? Thanks.
