Since I joined up to giffgaff, I followed the advice to set up iPhone and installed the giffgaff profile.

 

As I have an unlocked Italian iphone, I often SIM-swap and find that the profile kinda takes over everything and is a bit of a hassle to adjust (though for some reason the APN giffgaff.com does not inhibit use of a 3IRL and 3UK SIM).

 

Today, this caused me no end of problems while trying to configure a brand-new 3 Italia iPad microSIM and, in order to get the latter to work, I had to remove the giffgaff profile. Once done, data flowed.

 

Now, having dispensed with that, I put the giffgaff back in for home use and instead of re-installing the giffgaff profile, I simply adjusted the APN from the default O2 one to the giffgaff one. It worked.

 

So -is that OK then?

the giffgaff access point is very similar to O2 anyway, only differing in name and username, so yes editing O2 is one way to set up
