O2 UK Postpay or Prepay?

I've just fired up my new GiffGaff SIM in my Galaxy S 2. It asked me if the service was O2 UK Postpay, O2 UK Prepay or Tesco.

 

I assumed the middle one, wonder if it makes a difference, next time I update my firmware?

neither - you need to download the giffgaffapn app from the android marketplace:

do this via wifi, and it will set your phone up correctly for internet.

Thanks for the answers guys. I got the service message and settings shortly afterwards so I imagine I won't see this setting choice again until next time I factory reset.
