New Samsung Galaxy Nexus... can't get internet/mms settings...

I have texted 'settings' to 2020 but get a 'We had problems dealing with your request for settings...' error message in preply.

 

I've tried manually entering in new APN settings as below:- (I found these on another thread)

 

Manual Settings:

GPRS-3G Settings

Connection Name: giffgaff - GPRS
APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
Proxy Server Address: 193.113.200.195
Proxy Port:8080
Login - Username: giffgaff
Password: password
MCC: 234
MNC: 10


MMS Settings

Connection Name: giffgaff - MMS
APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
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
APN type: mms

 

 

 

...but I don't know how to get these to take effect. What do I need to do? Are these settings correct?

I am currently waiting for my number to be ported. Any more info required? 

 

Thanks...

After you entered these settings did you restart your phone?

On a Samsung you need to make sure that the profile containing these is active. This is usually indicated using a green dot or tick. If you are unsure, just delete all other profiles and just keep the giffgaff one.

 

Edit: Your port may also have started, and you would then have to wait for it to complete before things work correctly. This could take until tomorrow if it is scheduled for today.
