If its a native phone then it should be automatically connected.  Just try and use the internet.

Re: how do i connect to 3g using samsung galaxy y?

Try to reconfigure your phone to these GG settings.

Here are the basic APN Settings. Which "should" work on all phones.

 

Manual Settings:

 

GPRS-3G Settings

 

Connection Name: giffgaff - GPRS

APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com

Proxy Server Address: 193.113.200.195

Proxy Port:8080

Login - Username: giffgaff

Password: password

MCC: 234

MNC: 10

 

 

MMS Settings

 

Connection Name: giffgaff - MMS

APN - Access Point Name: 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

APN type: mms

 

If these don't work, can you get o2 coverage in your area? - webmap.o2.co.uk

Or is maintenance happening in your area? - status.o2.co.uk

 

If no, you most likely have a data ban, ask an agent about this!
