iOS 7 Data Settings

[ Edited ]

As some of you may have found, installing iOS7 may have caused your data settings to reset. As the layout is now different I though I would quickly update the how to for changing your giffgaff settings.

 

iPhone 4S (maybe others)

 

Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Network 

 

iPhone 5 users will need to navigate to:

 

Settings > Mobile > Mobile Data Network

 

Mobile Data

 

APN ... giffgaff.com

Username ... giffgaff or vertigo

Password ... password

Visual Voicemail (just leave as is, giffgaff do not support visual voicemail)

 

MMS

 

APN ... giffgaff.com

Username ... giffgaff

Password ... password

MMSC http://mmsc-ac.mms.o2.co.uk:10021/mmsc

MMS Proxy 193.113.200.195:8080

Max message size 2097152

MMS UA Prof URL (just leave blank)

Do NOT press the " Reset Settings " button when you’ve done this.

 

Once the settings are in, turn your iphone off ( via the red slider ) till the screen is completely blank. Then reboot. If you do not see the apple logo, the settings will not stick.

Re: iOS 7 Data Settings

Hi there jonathan.
Its always best to use vertigo as the username and NOT giffgaff mate.
Some people expierience a better quality of service when using vertigo as the username when using any iphone.

Go to " Settings " ....

But starts straight with
settings

mobile data

So that's strange

have a look at my screen shot.
