why do other people texts to me not come through?

People keep sending me texts and I am not receiving them and sometimes its impossible for me to send mms to people.

And you require credit to send mms, these are 16p

Try texting yourself to clear any backlogs

Mms costs 16p so if you don't have enough credit they won't send.

Also, check your signal. Is it alright?

try doing a manual roam
1. Go to settings
2. Then go to mobile networks
3. Select a network other than
o2 (gg) i.e orange or tmobile
4. Come out of settings and it
should say no network coverage
or something
5. Repeat the process this time
choose o2 (gg)
and this will update your
number to the message centre
and should help your txts

Re: why do other people texts to me not come through?

What phone are you using please?   You need to check that you have all the correct network settings in your phone.

giffgaff SIM cards do not always automatically put the required settings into the phone for you.

 

You also need to have credit on your GG account in order to send picture messages. MMS are NOT included in any goodybag.

So if you topped up with £10 then converted that £10 into a £10 goodybag, you have £0 credit therefore you cannot send MMS.
