So i bought a new samsung galaxy ace yesterday and ever since have been trying to figure out how to connect to the Internet using 3G. I manually inputted the settings i got off of this website and it kept asking me for the APN type when i tried saving. I downloaded the giffgaff apn app from the android market and when trying to use the internet it kept coming up with the message "The server failed to communicate. Try again later." . I then tried following the instructions for android on the giffgaff website, but still came up with the same problems for the apn type. Can someone please help me as i am now stuck on what to do. I would really like to have solved this in the next couple of hours as the bus journey to college tomorrow would be a lot more fun with the use of 3G on my brand new handset. Thanks

use your wifi and download giffgaff apn from the android market then install the settings that way

Strange, have you tried texting "settings" to 2020, it did the job for me.
But i also downloaded the Giffgaff APN from the Android market just to make sure.
At the side of the handset, there should be a power button, hold it for about 2 seconds and a screen should come up with the following options:
Data netowork mode
Ensure that the Data network mode is activated. Brilliant handset btw.

Don't select Packetdata.
Check this guide, it will probably help:http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-To
