android settings sony xperia

Hi all recently got new phonr and transferred my giffgaff sim into it. Tried to getting settings but traditianal text way didnt work. After searching these forums I downloaded the giffgaff apn app from google play and followed all the instrutions but when I clicked save nothing came up. Ive tried this several timea now both when connected to wifi and when not. It hasnt worked at all. I cant send or receive picture messages or use the internet and its really annoying me. Never had problem befoee.
