See this link to giffgaff Android phones: http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Unlocking-Discuss
Make sure these are the manual APN settings you entered:
Access point name: giffgaff
Proxy Server Address: 126.96.36.199
Proxy port / MMSport: 8080
Server / MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
APN type: mms
Hope this helps,

Firstly if you can text the word SETTINGS to 2020 then you should receive your settings via text message.
If for some reason that doesnt work and have access to wifi,then you can always install the giffgaff APN app or Tweakker.These apps should install your settings for you automatically.However
To setup your ANDROID device manually:
Go to ~ Settings ~ (MoreSettings) ~ Wireless & Networks ~ Mobile Networks ~ Access Point Names ~ Tap the MENU key ~ Select 'New APN
Type in this information; Name ~ giffgaff APN ~ giffgaff.com Username ~ giffgaff Password ~ password MMSC ~ http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002 MMS proxy ~ 188.8.131.52 MMS port ~ 8080
Press the Menu key then 'Save APN' Tick the APN to see a green light You are now set up for Internet + mms.
Ensure data is activated - Go to ~ Settings ~ Mobile Networks ~ tick the box marked: > DATA ENABLED or USE PACKET DATA. Restart your handset.
