why wont my phone connect to the internet??

hi,i activated my GG sim today and am supposed to have unlimited internet - but even tho i received the settings and activated them my phone will not connect to the internet. i have text settings to 2020 but not received settings again. i have also followed the steps to find my phone in the search and enter settings manually but no results are coming up. i have a Huawei HB5I1 on o2. can anyone help me? what can i do to get it to connect?  its not the phone, because my internet was working fine before i changed sim cards. thankyou.

Re: why wont my phone connect to the internet??

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


Internet Settings!

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

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

Try these settings > Go to internet settings on your mobile / phone then select Connection / Connectivity or Internet Profile / Data Connection from the menu and 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 30 seconds then power back up then the settings should apply for you

Re: why wont my phone connect to the internet??

Easiest way if you have access to wifi is to download the giffgaffAPN app from the Market and run with option 2, followed by 1 and reboot the phone.
This will sort out your internet and MMS settings.

Otherwise you can do this manually by following this http://bit.ly/giffgaffandroid - Android guide
