Re: Internet is not working on my Samsung Galaxy S2

Android Settings:

The easiest way is to connect to WI-FI and download "GIFFGAFF APN" from Android Market (or Google Play as it's now known)

Apparently people are having trouble using the app with the new Ice Cream Sandwich update, in which case click the following link:

first try texting the word SETTINGS to 2020 - however cos that only works on some phones here are the manual settings


  • Go to you wireless and network settings
  •     Select Mobile Networks
  •     Go to Access Point Names (go to next point if giffgaff is not among listed APN's)
  •     Press the menu soft key and select add new APN
  •     You should enter the following for their respective fields

 

  •     Name: giffgaff
  •     APN: giffgaff.com
  •     Username: giffgaff
  •     Password: password
  •     MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
  •     MMS Proxy: 193.113.200.195
  •     MMS Port: 8080
  •     APN type: internet + mms
  •     Press the menu soft key and save APN
  •     The New APN "giffgaff" should now be selected showing a green dot.
  •   Press the return soft key and make sure to tick the first option "Use Packet Data"
  •   If you have followed these steps, your internet should be set.
I hope this has helped you! :smileywink:
