Re: Text for my internet settings

Using wifi you can download the Giffgaff tweaker App from Google Play Store onto your phone.
Or, you can consider entering the following settings manually onto your phone as follows:
To setup your Android device manually:
Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names
Click the Menu button > New APN
Enter these details:
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
MMS port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 10

Re: Text for my internet settings

Ok try sending the text again. Make sure it only says 'settings' and send it to '2020'.

 

If that doesn't work, then here is a link to the page with all the settings for you to enter manually.

Re: Text for my internet settings

Text the word "SETTINGS" to 2020 and follow the instructions...if that fails then input the settings manually....this usually rectifies any problems, also for MMS to work properly you need to have 3g and Mobile Data turned on and also MMS enabled in your phone settings... otherwise MMS will NOT work....and its also a good idea to reboot your phone once you have done all of this...If all of this fails then contact an agent here.....https://giffgaff.com/support/ask/mobile_internet_issues
