[ Edited ]

MMS Setup Guide For giffgaff™



Just incase you didn't know - MMS cost 16p each to send and they are not included in any goodybags (otherwise please ignore if you do have enough pay as you go credit)


[ iPhone Users ]

[ Manual Settings For The Iphone ]


Firstly, check whether you have an old profile.

1 - Head to Settings -General -Profile. If you can't see Profile move on to number 2.
If you can see an old giffgaff profile, tap it and press Remove.

2 - Go back to Settings - General and press Reset.

3 - Press reset Network Settings and follow through.This will delete your WiFi passwords and You may need to enter your passcode, at which point your iPhone will reboot.

4 - Go back to Settings -General - Mobile Data or Network depending on your iOS version.

5 - Tap Mobile Data Network. Now under Mobile Data enter:
APN - giffgaff.com
Username - vertigo
Password - password,this should already be entered by default.

Leave Visual Voicemail as it is. ( giffgaff dont support it )

6 - Scroll down. Under MMS enter: APN – giffgaff.com
Username – vertigo
Password – Type the word password,again this is the default)
MMSC – http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002 or try -
MMS Max Message Size - 2097152

Now - Power Off for a minute
Then - Power On


[ Other Handsets ]


1, Send the word settings to 2020


2, If it worked then save the settings and then power off your handset for 60sec and then power back on and see if that sorts it


3, If sending to 2020 failed then i suggest trying my guide below
