Internet settings for Nokia 6500s-1

Hi all,

 

Now on giffgaff, just ported my number. Got the settings from 2020 - the phone prompts me to save them, but then I'm not sure how to install them as it does not give the option after saving.

 

Going into Settings > Configuration Settings lets me select 'Default Config Settings' - so I choose and apply giffgaff. I can make phone calls and send texts fine but the internet doesn't work. There's no giffgaff option in 'Access Points'. Additionally, going into Connectivity > Packet Data Settings gives me the option of 3 or 3DM or Access Point 3/4/5/6/7 etc.

 

The phone used to be on three but has since been unlocked.

Can you add a manual APN? The settings can be found in the forums for you to enter it manually.

"Saving" them should "instal" them. Did you manage to save the message. First step would be to try again and then restart the phone by powering off and on again. (Sound like an Indian Call Centre :smileyhappy:)
