Re: Phone settings

Hi there.
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 ~ 193.113.200.195 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.
You can also check out your Android apn settings by clicking onto the link below cheers.
