Re: New ios7 settings for iphone 5

Hi
See here
Gg iphone settings.
If you have wifi, you can download the giffgaff app. This can set your apn settings for you, but you will need to set your mms settings manually. Or you can enter all the settings manually. See here.
Delete any profiles installed, even GiffGaff. Go to settings / general and scroll down to see if any profiles are installed. If so then delete them. Then

Go to Settings
General
Mobile Data
Then scrol l down to Mobile Data Network

Mobile Data

APN ... giffgaff.com
Username ... vertigo
Password ... password
Visual Voicemail (just leave as is, giffgaff do not support visual voicemail)

MMS

APN ... giffgaff.com
Username ... vertigo
Password ... password
MMSC http://mmsc-ac.mms.o2.co.uk:10021/mmsc
MMS Proxy 193.113.200.195:8080
Max message size 2097152
MMS UA Prof URL (just leave blank)
Do NOT press the " Reset Settings " button when you’ve done this.

Once the settings are in, turn your iphone off ( via the red slider ) till the screen is completely blank. Then reboot. If you do not see the apple logo, the settings will not stick.

Then, press Settings /Messages and ensure that MMS Messaging button is set to ON.

In settings messages turn imessages on.

Please also ensure that the Enable 3G button and the Mobile Data button are set to ON. (Press Settings, then General, then Mobile Data).

Then Settings /Phone And check My Number is correct

Go to Settings /Carrier and switch automatic On. The carrier should then show O2-UK



Also note that Picture messages cost 16p and are not included in any goodybags.

Also the mms must be kept under 300 kb in file size.

To set up imessage.

Make sure you are running the latest ios software.
Select settings
Select messages
Enable imessage
You should see a message saying activating
Scroll the page up. You will see.
Send and receive. Click on addresses.
On that page you will see your phone numbers and email addresses.
Thats it.

Re: New ios7 settings for iphone 5



Hi there,here are my settings for my I Phone which work excellent.These are slightly different from some settings already on the forum,but work good for me.Thanks Col
After itunes has updated your iPhone, it will reset your mobile data settings, so you need to re install them.

The " Network " option has been replaced with " Mobile Data "

There are three iPhones in the family that use these settings successfully. (3Gs, 4, 4s) Running IOS 5.1.1 IOS 6

These settings can be entered on iOS 6 by going: settings
general
mobile data
mobile data network

Mobile Data
APN-giffgaff.com
Username-vertigo
Password-password
Visual Voicemail (just leave as is, giffgaff do not support visual voicemail)

MMS
APN-giffgaff.com
Username-vertigo
Password-password
MMSC http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS Proxy 82.132.254.1:8080
Max message size 2097152
MMS UA Prof URL (just leave blank)

Do NOT press the Reset Settings button.

Once the settings are in, turn off phone using the red slider till the screen is completely blank. Then reboot. If you do not see the apple logo, you will lose the settings.

Go into Settings, Messages and ensure that MMS Messaging button is set to ON.
In Settings, Messages turn imessages ON.
Press Settings, General, Mobile Data and make sure Enable 3G and the Mobile Data buttons are set to ON.
Then Settings, Phone And check My Number is correct.
Then Settings, Carrier and change to O2-UK
