iPhone 4S network settings

Will they revert to the 02 ones every time that I connect it to my laptop, as that will be my primary source of charging my phone - or is there a way to keep the giffgaff ones there permanantly as I definitely cannot be bothered to re-enter them daily.

Re: iPhone 4S network settings

Shouldn't do. I've had a problem with my iPad where the O2 settings come back after a software upgrade but a normal sync/charge hasn't caused that.

Re: iPhone 4S network settings

Shouldn't really do that.  Are you pressing Reset Settings by any chance?

BTW this should be on the help board rather than the learn board. A moderator may move it.

Re: iPhone 4S network settings

Sorry I didn't even think about it. it's just because I came straight out of the iPhone 4 guide.

So if a moderator could move it, I would be greatful :smileyhappy:

Anyways, I've not 'reset' the settings, I've simply started charging it on my laptop and it's the first time I've downloaded iTunes which could be the issue? And as soon as I synced (when I'd moved the apps around) I checked the network settings and they were back to O2.


I'll disconnect it, reenter the settings, reconnect to iTunes and see what happens.

Re: iPhone 4S network settings

Your giffgaff settings should remain as long as the giffgaff sim is left in your phone and no others inserted at any time.

Re: iPhone 4S network settings

I've changed the settings back - Only seemed that Cellular Data and Visual Voicemail (the top two) had changed, but the MMS settings were unchanged.

Re: iPhone 4S network settings

Sorry for making this large and bold, but I've realised my error:

 

Earlier, I upgraded the software to iOS 5.1 which probably reset the settings.

 

 

If a moderator could move/close/delete this thread, whichever they see fit, I would be greatful :smileyhappy:

 

Thanks guys,
