MMS settings for Samsung Galaxy S2 running ICS

Hi folks.

I've recently updated the system on my Android to ICS but can no longer use MMS. My internet and all other settings are fine although they had to be put in manually.

Does anyone know how to enter the MMS settings manually? I'm reluctant to "just text 2020" as the last time I did this it lost all my settings!

Thank you.

Peter.

Re: MMS settings for Samsung Galaxy S2 running ICS

Hi Peter, 2020 shouldnt really work with Android phones. You can either delete your Android settings profile and go to Google Play and download the giffgaff APN app and follow the instructions and hopefully that should fix this for you. Or try this link and see if it helps http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-Top-Tips/Android-Settings/m-p/54687/highlight/true#M...

Re: MMS settings for Samsung Galaxy S2 running ICS

I updated my SGS2 to ICS on Monday. These are my settings:

Name: giffgaff
APN: giffgaff.com
Proxy: 193.113.200.195
Port: 8080
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
Server: http:// mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMSC: http:// mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS Proxy: 193.113.200.195
MMS Port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 10
Authentication type: PAP
APN type: default,supl,mms
APN protocol: IPv4
APN enabled
Bearer: unspecified

Is this what you have got?

Note to previous posters: The giffgaff apn cannot automatically input settings for ICS, they have to be done manually.

Re: MMS settings for Samsung Galaxy S2 running ICS

Hi, I've put the settings in and I can send MMS fine now, the only trouble is I can't seem to receive "normal" text messages now. I'll go through the settings again now.

Cheers,

Peter.

Hi Peter, can you switch off and remove the sim for about a minute then place back in, hopefully this should resolve your issue with incoming SMS.
