Mobile Data network for iPhone.

What should the APN, username and password be for the giffgaff network because it's showing idata.o2.co.uk as the APN right now. And I can't seem to get 3G working :smileysad:

Enter the settings into your iPhone exactly like this...



(go to Settings -> General -> Network -> Cellular Data Network) scroll to the bottom then hit RESET SETTINGS, then enter these:


Cellular Data
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password

Visual Voicemail
same as above (or leave blank cos it doesnt work anyway)

MMS
APN: giffgaff.com

MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195:8080

Got it working now! I was stupid enough to forget that Wifi Over rides 3G, I forgot the network from the iPhone and all is working well now! Thank you all very much for your help :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Mobile Data network for iPhone.

Hi

I'm having the same problem with my 3GS iphone.

I've just connected to giffgaff today and I'm transferring my old number tomorrow.

I can use my phone to make calls, and I can connect to the internet via wi fi.

 

I've followed all the instructions to set the phone up, but I don't get the 3G showing in thae status bar and if I turn wi fi off I get "could not activate mobile data network" message.

 

Any ideas?

Re: Mobile Data network for iPhone.

Double, triple and quadruple check your settings! If there's a typo in any of the details it won't work.
