I've had giffgaff on my tab for several months. I currently have £10 goodybag. As I have done each month. Recently I am unable to access the Internet despite having a full 5 bar signal and on 3G or HSPDA. In the same locations where I could access I now no longer have Internet access or it is very intermittent.
My apn settings haven't changed. I have tried resetting them using the giffgaffapn tool on Android. I have rebooted the Tab several times. I have removed and installed the sim several times.
I have checked O2 service status. Everything is fine according to them.
What is happening? How do I sort this out?!

I hope so. Though the cynical part of me thinks this could be O2's doing given how they treat thier own users with regards to data and the Internet.

Best thing is to just hold off for an hour or so and come back if any other problems. I think it's slowly coming back to different areas again.

Well i had internet and data access for all of 10 minutes. I eventually managed to send an email, a mms and download a small app. Now i'm back at square 1 and internet / data access os off again.

Think the errors are across the whole country, waiting on an official announcement from the guys. My internet has been fine since I last posted. Strange.
