Settings guide for Android 2.3.6

I am seeking help please with settings, having transferred from vodafone to giffgaff a few days ago.  My handset is a Huawei Ascend G 300 running Android 2.3.6.  The settings guide on giffgaff covers some Android settings but doesn't mention this particular one.  I thought it would work but following the step by step guide apparently i need to find a choice on the menu for APN settings, which I cant find.  Could anyone offer advice please?

Re: Settings guide for Android 2.3.6

FULL SETTINGS FOR INTERNET AND MMS

 

INTERNET SETTINGS

FIRST - try to text SETTINGS to 2020

(this doesn't always work)

 

ANDROID - download Gaffer from the market – http://bit.ly/M9jYAe

BLACKBERRY - http://bit.ly/MJ5Zzy

 

still not working?

Manually Input Them into your phone's connection settings as follows:

*These Are The Standard Settings for ALL phones*

(Including iPhone's, htc's, samsung's, sonyericsson's etc)

YOUR PHONE MAY NOT ASK FOR ALL THE SETTINGS, JUST PUT IN WHAT YOU NEED

 

Connection Name: giffgaff - GPRS

APN-Access Point Name: giffgaff.com

Proxy Server Address: 193.113.200.195

Proxy Port: 8080

Login-Username: giffgaff

Password: password

MMC: 234

MNC: 10

 

Make sure the new settings are ACTUALLY SELECTED

(usually a green dot or a tick next to the new giffgaff settings)

*RESTART PHONE*

 

The 2 most common mistakes are the username and password, they are not your giffgaff login details, the username is 'giffgaff' and the password is the word 'password'

 

MMS SETTINGS

*please be aware that MMS cost 16p and are NOT included in ANY goodybag*

 

Connection Name: giffgaff - MMS

APN-Access Point Name: giffgaff.com

Username: giffgaff

Password: password

Server: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

MMS Proxy: 193.113.200.195

MMS Port: 8080

MCC: 234

MNC: 10

APN Type: mms

Re: Settings guide for Android 2.3.6

There are 2 ways to set up your settings for your phone to work

 

1.Connect to WiFi and download and install this App and run the Giffgaff APN, it should set it all up for you automatically
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mstubbs.gaffer

 

2. Another way is to set up your android phone manually as follows

Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

Menu button  - New APN

Enter the following

Name: giffgaff

APN: giffgaff.com

Username: giffgaff

Password: password

Server: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195

Re: Settings guide for Android 2.3.6

Firstly you must delete your original apn settings to try the above as your settings will clash with each other.try putting them in by hand as this seems to work for most people.also once you have put your settings in then turn your device off and wait 2 mins then turn it back on again,thus will re boot your device.try once thats done try installing the app back up and restore as this will always save your apn settings for you automatically. Remember every time you factory reset your device then you lose your giffhaff settings and tgey go back to the factory settings,eg,o2,orange,t mobile etc,etc,i hope this helps and have a great day today.
