Android APN

These are the settings to be included in the next Global APN list.

Could an Android User take a look over them, and see what you think.

 

They do differ slightly from the giffgaff APN tool.

Can't check on my Blade, as the daughters buggered off with it somewhere.

 

Press ‘Menu’.
Tap ‘Settings’.
Tap ‘Wireless Controls’.
Tap ‘Mobile networks’.
Tap ‘Access Point Names’.
Press ‘Menu’.
Tap ‘Add APN’

Now key in the following settings:

Name: giffgaff
APN: giffgaff.com
Proxy: *LEAVE BLANK*
Port: *LEAVE BLANK*

Password: password
Server: *LEAVE BLANK*
MMSC: *LEAVE BLANK*
MMS Proxy: *LEAVE BLANK*
MMS Port: *LEAVE BLANK*
MCC: 234
MNC: 10

Press ‘Menu’
Tap ‘Save’

Press ‘Back’.
Press ‘Menu’.
Tap ‘Add APN’

Name: giffgaff MMS
APN: giffgaff.com
Proxy: *LEAVE BLANK*
Port: *LEAVE BLANK*
Username: giffgaff

CyanogenMod already has working giffgaff APNs in it's list, other ROM's use them. Works perfectly on my wifes Blade. Just take them for whatever this list is.

Just used these APN's in my Android phone which wasn't connecting with 3G. Found these settings, tried them and they work for me.

Hi peeps,

 Well after my first vey stressful day of being a giffgaff sim owner, i have just used these settings and all i get is full signal on "G" But still cant get onto the net throught my phone, all i get when tryin to connect or log into my email addresses is "There was a network error while tryin to sign into  (My email adress)"

Also, when i try to connect to internet i get "The server failed to communicate" ? So no internet for me rightnow.

Not happy and very stressed, was hoping my new giffgaff sim/setup would of been a simple setup and not so much hassle and stress. Im on HTC DESIRE and have bought a £5.00 goodybag(top up)

Trues, but to access the Market you need internet access.
