The day I bought my galaxy s, I searched on the forum using the search box and found the settings for it. It took less than a minute to get giffgaffed up on it. 

 

A top tip would be to use another sim or wi fi to download the giffgaffapn off the android market to sort the settings out.

I don't think it needs to be moved. Its in the perfect spot. I don't usually agree with newbies writing guides but this type of stuff does come up a lot. You're right. If people just used a smidge of common sense they would find a lot less problems. You have and you done good soldier.
