Download the app "Tweakker APN INTERNET MMS" from Googleplaystore. Open it and install the giffgaff settings, then reboot your phone.

APN: giffgaff.com
Proxy:
Port:
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

Make sure you save your settings.

Make sure that your data connection is active and that you are NOT connected to wifi.

Re: cannot open a multimedia picture message Samsung Galaxy Ace

What app are you using to open the message?

 

I know this sounds daft, but some people have reported that until they opened an MMS in the stock messaging app, they couldn't open one in any other messaging app.
