Updated to iOS 7 and Have No Internet? READ

When you update to iOS 7 you are asked to update your carrier settings and if you did not decline you will need to update your APN's to restore service. Text "settings" to 2020 and if that does not work enter your internet settings from here : http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/giffgaff-Top-Tips/Definitive-APN-Settings-list/td-p/1279

I'm sure you only get that message when you update to iOS 7 by using iTunes,

if you use the iPhone itself for the update it doesn't state / show any message but still changes the carrier from
o2 14.1
to
o2 15 .1

noscope whilst the post is good its to basic for the iphone.

you would have been better to include the iphone specific settings guides for which we have hundreds.

theres also 1 or 2 guides already been posted by iphone users that do include the iphone specific settings that they are using on ios7.
