System Settings>Wireless & Networks>Mobile Networks>Access Point Names. Create new APN (you might have to select this from a pop up menu)

Name: giffgaff
APN: giffgaff.com
Proxy:
Port:
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
Server:
MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195
MMS port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 10
APN type: not set

Leave any other fields at the way they are.
Make sure you save your settings
