Hey!

Can you let us know what steps you have tried so far? Have you tried texting "settings" to 2020?

Re: internet setting on a Sony Xperia E

See this KB article on how to setup your Android device: http://giff.ly/androidongg

Or, if you have a wifi connection, install and use the "tweakker" app from the Play Store https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tweakker

Or, to setup your Android device manually:

Settings > Wireless & networks > (More >) Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

Click the Menu button > New APN

Enter these details (leave all other settings as not set):

Name: giffgaff
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password (this is the word "password")
MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195
MMS port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 10

and for Android 4.3 or above:

MVNO type: IMSI
MVNO value: 23410x

If those basic settings don't work add these values:

Authentication type: PAP
APN type: default,supl,mms


Settings > Wireless & networks > (More >) Mobile Networks > Data enabled <ON>

Re: internet setting on a Sony Xperia E

To set up your Sony Xperia use the set up routine below. Some people have had problems creating a new APN on Xperia phones. If this is the case for you then edit the O2 pay as you go APN instead of creating a new one.


go to:
(System) Settings>Wireless & Networks (more. . .)>Mobile Networks>Access Point Names. Create new APN (you might have to select this from a pop up menu)

Now enter the following information:

Name: giffgaff
APN: giffgaff.com
Proxy:
Port:
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: default,supl,mms

Leave any other fields at the way they are.
Make sure you save your settings

If you have a WiFi connection ...
Download the 'Tweakker' app from the playstore. Open
it and select giffgaff as your operator. The settings will
install automatically. Click onto this link here:
