Internet set up for Samsung Galaxy S2 Android 4.0?

Hello all, I've just bought a new phone today, which is on the 02 network, but bought the phone outright on pay as you go. The man in the shop put my GiffGaff SIM in, and it works fine, but I can't get the internet to work, or set up. Wifi works ok, but I'd like to use my GiffGaff internet!!

 

I tried Tweakker but the app says it doesn't work for Android 4.0 

 

Help!

Thanks :smileyhappy:

Text 'settings' to 2020

Click the Menu button > New APN

Enter these details:

Name: giffgaff
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
Server: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

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