Hi there

 

I'm sorry to imform you but you don't actually need the BBM add on for IPhones as it's free.

 

The reason for it to not working over Mobile data is because you need to insert giffgaff APN settings on your Iphone.

 

You can automatically change your settings by texting the word settings to 2020, if that fails follow this short guide :-)

 

APN: giffgaff.com

Username: Vertigo

Password: password

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

MMS Proxy: 193.113.200.195:8080

MMS Max Message Size: 2097152

 

To manually change the settings above go to...

 

Settings>General>Network / Mobile Data>Mobile Data Network

 

Once that is done go to...

Settings>Messages

 

and check that "MMS Messaging is turned ON

 

Please note: MMS messages cost 16p to send and it not covered by your goodybag.

 

If still nothing then turn your flight mode on and off.

 

Alan.
