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

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

Username – vertigo
Password – password


Username – vertigo
Password – password

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

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


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