Samsung Mobile Internet / 3G GPRS Settings

I have been uanble to receive mobile internet connection on my Samsung phone since joining Giffaff. The help page has taken me to Edit Access Setting  but unlike the samples displayed those on the phone are grayed out and not accessable. Have you any suggestions. I also only get options for O2 networks and none for Giffgaff. Thanks

If it's a Samsung Android phone, connect to WiFi and download GiffGaff APN from google play. Otherwise, see here http://bit.ly/giffgaffAPN
