Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) Internet & MMS Settings

[ Edited ]

Just a quick heads up: I can confirm that the procedure for the APN settings in Android 4.2 are identical to those in Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 and Jelly Bean 4.1, so you should have no problems setting up your Nexus 7, Nexus 4 or any other device you may have on Android 4.2 in the future.

 

The guide for the settings for the above versions is available here: http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-Top-Tips/Android-4-0-4-1-amp-4-2-Jelly-Bean-amp-ICS-...

Tap MMS proxy and type 193.113.200.195 then tap OK

Tap MMS port and type 8080 then tap OK

You should see

MNC 10 if not then enter them manually by tapping, entering and OKing

 

Now press the Menu button on your phone again, and choose Save  

Tap the little circle to the right of the profile named giffgaff-gprs on the list. It should turn blue

 

Now for MMS you need another APN

so go back through setting up a New APN as above then enter MMS Settings opening typing and OKing each

Re: Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) Internet & MMS Settings

On any Android phone or tablet or phablet all you need to change is Name-giffgaff. Apn-giffgaff.com. username-giffgaff. Password-password and this works on all of them. Even worked on my lenovo and that's running the latest Android! There is no need to change all the other things like proxy settings and all the numbers, trust me!
