Iphone 5 Internet Settings:

Hi everyone,

 

I know that you have to change your internet setting, if you want to use your iPhone 5 with giffgaff. I viewed a few posts and I am confused which MMSC setting I should use because I found both recommendations:

 

 

Do you used as 

 

MMSC (in your MMS settings): http://mmsc-ac.mms.o2.co.uk:10021/mmsc    OR  http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

 

Because it just works with my iPhone 5 with the second one( BUT a bit slow I think, but could also be the connection) but most users are recommending the first one.

 

So which one should I use?

Recent iOS updates change some settings back to the original airtime provider's configuration, which will make it fail to work, however the following will sort it.

Select Settings > General > MOBILE DATA (or CELLULAR) > Mobile Data Network (or Cellular Data Network)

Cellular Data
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password [Leave blank]

                            ^ [Note: The correct answer has changed since this post was made]


Visual Voicemail
giffgaff don't support this yet, so leave it blank

MMS
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password [Leave blank]

                            ^ [Note: The correct answer has changed since this post was made]

MMSC: http://mmsc-ac.mms.o2.co.uk:10021/mmsc
MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195:8080 82.132.254.1

                            ^ [Note: The correct answer has changed since this post was made]

MMS Max Message Size: 2097152
MMS UA Prof URL: leave this blank

Finally, have a quick check to make sure that the option for Settings > General > Mobile Data (or Cellular) > Cellular Data is set to 'On', then restart your handset and it should be sorted.

Do NOT press the " Reset Settings " button when you’ve done this.

Once the settings are in, turn your iphone off ( via the red slider ) till the screen is completely blank. Then reboot. If you do not see the apple logo, the settings will not stick.

Then, press Settings /Messages and ensure that MMS Messaging button is set to ON.

In settings messages turn imessages on.

Please also ensure that the Enable 3G button and the Mobile Data button are set to ON. (Press Settings, then General, then Mobile Data).

Then Settings /Phone And check My Number is correct

Go to Settings /Carrier and switch automatic On. The carrier should then show O2-UK



Also note that Picture messages cost 16p and are not included in any goodybags.
