Re: Motorola defy mini internet connection issues...

You can try texting settings to 2020 but this method only works for some Android phones,not all of them.


The 3 methods that are guaranteed to work for all Android operating systems except Android 4 (ICS) are:-
You can either follow the guide at


http://support.giffgaff.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/610/kw/android#ANS1

Or connect to the internet by wifi,visit the Google Play and download an app called "giffgaffapn".Once you have downloaded and installed it select the second option that will input all your settings for you.


Or download the apk file for the giffgaffapn app from the link below,copy it to your phone's sd card and install and run it as above.

If you have Android 4 (ICS) the only method to install your settings is to follow the guide linked to above and install them manually.One of the new security features of ICS is that 3rd party apps cannot change your APN settings so the giffgaffapn app will not work.Although the guide says it's for earlier Android operating systems the same settings apply to Android 4.

If its android go to the play store and download giffgaffapn using WiFi.

If ics follow the instructions to copy and paste the settings. If not ics select option 2, then 1 to install the settings.
