Re: Internet

You have 2 options

1- Download the mygiffgaff APP via wifi and install the settings from within the app by tapping on

More > APN settings > install settings

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/my-giffgaff/id571246020?mt=8


2- You can also input the settings manually by following the guide below if you haven't got access to wifi:

First of all make sure that any profiles that you have installed (including giffgaff if you have) are removed completely.

Settings > General (scroll to bottom and remove any giffgaff profiles you find)

Then reset data settings

Settings >mobile> mobile data network > reset settings

Then manually input the following settings

Mobile data

APN – giffgaff.com
Username – vertigo
Password – password

MMS

APN – giffgaff.com
Username – vertigo
Password – password
MMSC – http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

MMS Proxy – 193.113.200.195:8080
MMS Max Message Size – 2097152
MMS UA Prof URL - *leave blank*

Please ensure 3G is enabled as well in your settings.

SETTINGS>MOBILE and turn ENABLE 3G ON

Leave it for a bit for the phone to hook up with the network and you are good to go :smileyhappy:
