Re: internet setting on samsung gt-s5230

Please see below

|Internet Settings|

1.Send a text message free of charge with the word settings to 2020:

If number 1 worked then please install the settings then turn off your handset for 60sec then power back up and the settings should enable you to browse the internet and install the MMS settings for you

2.If that doesnt work then please follow this guide:

Try these settings > Go to internet settings or Wireless & Networks on your mobile phone

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

APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com

Proxy Server Address:193.113.200.195

Proxy Port: 8080

Login - Username: giffgaff

Password: password

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

*If it still doesn't connect to the internet then please see below*

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

"MMS Settings"

If the settings did not work by sending a text to 2020 then I suggest doing it manually found below.

Manual Input
On your phone > Go to Multimedia Message Settings And Enter In The Right Colums

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

MMS also cost 16p each to send and they are not included in any of the goodybags as a free bundle or a add-on,

They will be charged from your existing payg / airtime balance if you wanted to send MMS

I have the same phone you need to text settings to2020 then go to your Internet profiles and ensure its set on giffgaff wap, then go into your mms settings and ensure your mms profile is set to giffgaff wap and not 02 wap x

I think that you have a Symbian phone so the generic settings should work
