All phone settings.
You need to enter the gg apn settings into your phone. But you don't say what phone you have.
Text "SETTINGS" to 2020, click on the link and it should enter the giffgaff settings into your phone.
Or, click on this link to manually enter the giffgaff settings for all phones.
If it helps,
Feel free to use this post at a later date

You can text "settings" to 2020 and get the settings sent to your phone.
Or try putting data settings into your phone manually:
And then restart you phone.

First, please note that you cannot use a goodybag with unlimited data on your iPad. This is strictly forbidden and your SIM will be blocked. Any other goodybag/a gigabag/normal credit is fine though.
First, Go to Settings, then WiFi, and turn WiFi off. This enables the internet settings to be successfully input.
Now, go to Settings again, then Cellular (if available), then Cellular/Mobile Data, and make sure Cellular/Mobile Data is switched on.
Then choose Cellular/Mobile Data Network. In the boxes, type:
Now power off your iPad and switch it on again. The internet settings are now complete.
N.B. If the Cellular/Mobile Data tab does not appear, see this guide:http://www.bit.ly/iphonenocellulardata
Your iPad will say O2-UK as the carrier, because giffgaff uses O2's signal. If you would like to change the text to giffgaff, there's a long winded way of doing this which requires jailbreaking. PM me if interested.
Also, the View Account button in Cellular/Mobile data will not work, but simply log onto your giffgaff username on the website to find out how many MB you have left.
