Re: how to set up internet?

If you have Android: if you have Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), or don't have WiFi available, use this manual guide: http://j.mp/giffgaffandroid

Otherwise, on WiFi download the app "giffgaffAPN" from Google Play/the Android Market. Open it and install the giffgaff settings (use Option 2, then Option 1), then reboot.



If you have an iPhone or iPad, see this guide: http://bit.ly/giffgaffiphonesettings



If you have BlackBerry, your internet should work automatically. If it doesn't, try pulling the battery out of the phone while it's switched on then reboot. If you would like to use internet on your BlackBerry without the BlackBerry addon, see here http://j.mp/bboperamini



If you have Windows Mobile 6, see this guide: http://bit.ly/giffgaffwindows



If you have Windows Phone 7, see this guide: http://bit.ly/giffgaffwp7



If you have an Orange San Francisco, see this guide: http://bit.ly/giffgaffOSF



If you have a Nokia Lumia, see this guide: http://j.mp/giffgafflumia



If your phone is not on that list, try texting the word SETTINGS to 2020.



If this doesn't work, use these generic settings: http://bit.ly/giffgaffapn

Re: how to set up internet?

usually sending SETTINGS to 2020 works - but various phones need to enter manually - could you let us know your phone model? easy to enter manually - then all free on goodbag.
