Re: how do I get my Internet to work

you will need to enter them manually,as i dont know what mobile you have,you will need to head over to the community page on giffgaff and search your mobiles name and write settings,then go to a post and enter them manually,or you can download a free app called giffgaff apn and it will do it for you.

-Then select Mobile Networks Or Connection / Connectivity or Internet Profile / Data Connection from the menu and click Access Point or create a new apn and enter >

Connection Name: giffgaff - GPRS

Tap- APN - The Access Point Name And Enter giffgaff.com

Proxy Port: 8080

Login - Username: giffgaff

* Then make sure giffgaff is set as default for your wap settings *


Then power your phone of for 60 seconds then power back up then the settings should be applied for you

Or There Is More Phone Settings/MMS and full on guides found here http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Contribute-Innovation-Promotion/giffgaff-Internet-Settings/m-p/3669...

Try deleting any old or new (data) / (wap) (internet) settings you dont need then power off your phone then back on again and retry the settings and see if that works
