Question

I can't send or receive MMS, why?

Answer

There are two different reasons that could explain these symptoms.

 

   

 

The MMS settings are incorrect


 Back to top

  

It may happen that the automatic settings work well for call, SMS and Internet but were unable to modify the parameters for MMS. It's typically the case when you can neither send nor receive MMS.

 

You can change the MMS settings manually, the correct settings are:

 

APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com

Login - Username: giffgaff
Password: [leave blank]

 

APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: [leave blank]

Server - http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

Port - http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS proxy: 82.132.254.1
MMS port: 8080

 

If you need more information on how to change these settings, you can search for your particular phone model here.

  

 

The balance is insufficient

If you are able to receive MMS but not send them, your settings are correct but you may have an insufficient balance to complete the operation.

 

MMS are not included in the goodybags allowance and they cost 16p each. If you don't have credit in your balance, you will need to top-up to be able to send MMS.

 

You can find more information about topping up in this guide.
