Mobile Data Setting

I have an iPhone and am new to GiffGaff.  I cannot access mobile data. My mobile data setting is

APN idata.o2.co.uk rather than GiffGaff. Not sure how I got the above APN. Should I change to GiffGaff as per the instructions on this site?

 

If I do change the APN to GiffGaff, will I be able to use mobile data on the move and pay for it from my top up purse?

 

How do I set up calling the UK from abroad on my GiffGaff mobile?

 

Thank you.

Yes you can pay for internet from your airtime credit.  It will cost 20p for the first 20mb and then 20p/mb after that.

 

Giffgaff SIMs are enabled for international roaming by default. Giffgaff, via O2, covers a lot of countries so you shouldn't have a problem taking your phone abroad.

You will need airtime credit to use your phone abroad, as goodybags are UK only. Also, it's difficult to topup when you are abroad so ensure you have plenty of airtime credit before you go.

Finally, data/internet usage is expensive starting at 69p/mb depending on where you are going. It's best to stick to wifi!

Prices can be found at the bottom of this page http://giffgaff.com/index/pricing

Re: Mobile Data Setting

Do you wanna set voicemail it's :



Its : 443

To Switch on: Dial 1616

To Switch off: Dial 1626

Guide to voicemail
http://bit.ly/giffgaffvoicemail

(giffgaff  don't support visual voicemail for)
iPhone users)

Roaming is on by default on all  giffgaff sim cards ..
 
But make sure your goodybags allowance can't be used abroad so make sure you have airtime credit  at your disposal if you thinking to use your phone abroad...

...Many people get caught out because of data do make sure turn data roaming off ..+ ...switch off voicemail !
