Re: Nexus 7 and http error 403

More confusion. Bottom settings are for phone, not tablet - so should have worked as was. Probably putting phone settings is is not valid on tablet. So back to square one! And I have previously tried amending the existing entries with just the top (tablet) entries. Now I knbow how to get rid of entry I'll remove exisitng and just have giffgaff & post back with results

I really, really hope it works for you!

 

edit:  just to check: your number is showing on your dashboard in my giffgaff isn't it? - ie you are fully activated

 

if you are and settings still not working

 

try this:

 

Check to see if there are any outages in the mobile network where you are by entering your postcode here www.bit.ly/ggservicestatus

If OK then see if doing a manual roam helps http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-Top-Tips/manual-roam/m-p/3345471#M32502

Also try turning airplane mode on and then back off.

If no luck then try rebooting

 

I'm going off-line now - so good luck!

Re: Nexus 7 and http error 403

Now just have giffgaff, with APN giffgaff.com, everything else on first page unset as per screenshot. Still the same.

I wonder if I do need something in the lower settings for a tablet (there are some default values in there.)

Its still trying to access http://tablet.02.co.uk. I can't believe I'm  the only person who has had this issue! I've even put some money on the Sim (in case the gigabag wasn't enough)

Re: Nexus 7 and http error 403

Just to draw a line under this - it looks like the SIM was faulty - tried it in my phone, nothing worked - so have ordered a new onw which hopefully will work with the settings a number of your have pointed me at. Thanks for all the help.
