Hi, All,

 

I was on the other day about not being able to send mms with picture, couldn't solve that. Today I went away from home and turned on data traffic but couldn't connect to the internet. I've nothing in the Server setting, what should be there? Is that all that's wrong. I'm new to this.

Have you turned on packet data, MMS needs credit to send.

Just download the giffgaff app, when you're on WiFi

This will be able to install the correct settings for you

In the APN section, I choose the 02 Pay&GO (the only one showing, if you cant see it do a reset to default) so that it had the circle light with a blue light. I then enter it and edited it, now this has never worked any other time. But this time I left the name as



O2 Pay&Go and then edited the rest to...

APN: giffgaff.com

Username: giffgaff

Password: password

MMSC: http:// mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

MMS Proxy: 193.113.200.195

MMS Port: 8080

MCC: 234

MNC: 10



Now click the right hand key and choose save, restart your mobile and you should be connected to giffgaff.



If you unsure how to find the place to so this them please try this (may vary per model):

Access settings, this come be done by placing your finger at top of screen anf moving downwards or by pressing the icon above the home button.

Once in settings, you will see wirless&networks, click on more.

From here select Mobile Networks, then Access Point Names.

Now follow information as above to create APN.

I hope that these instructions will help you get your Xperia mobile APN for giffgaff up and running.

Stop panicking, all. I've found the SAVE button at the end of the APN process. Should have read all you advice more carefully. Thanks a lot.
