Re: Internet & MMS settings Galaxy S4

Hello, try this guide
Text the word SETTINGS to 2020 or you can install them
manually if that doesn't do the trick

Here are the Android 4 internet & MMS manual settings

Go to Settings > More Settings > Mobile network > Access Point Names. Press the Menu key then select +New APN

In the boxes, type the following details:

● Name: giffgaff
● APN: giffgaff.com
● MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
● MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195
● MMS port: 8080

(don't alter any other settings in the APN list)
Now press the Menu button again and select Save.
Tap the circle next to the profile named giffgaff so a green/blue dot appears. Restart your mobile and you
should be connected.

There are 3 ways to set up your MMS and internet settings for your phone 

 

1. Text settings” to 2020

 

2.Connect to WiFi and download and install an app on your phone called “tweakker” 

   This will put the correct APN settings in for you

3 You can set up your android phone manually as follows

 

Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

Menu button  - New APN

Enter the following

Name: giffgaff

APN: giffgaff.com

Username: giffgaff

Password: password

Server: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195
