Hi there, you can try texting the word "SETTINGS" to 2020

giffgaff will then send u a text with the required settings

 

If this doesnt help let us know what handset model u are on and we'll try our best to get it sorted

Once again, welcome to giffgaff!

Sometimes it can take upto 24 hours for all parts of the service to come live, but also to use the internet you may need to input the apn settings into your phone, see this link for info on how to do this:

You need to correct internet settings.
They can be install via the giffgaff app from the "more" tab or you can text settings to 2020.

DO NOT text "settings" to 2020 as this now gives incorect settings. CLICK HERE to see a manual setup guide. :smileyhappy:

Regd Internet/MMS settings, you need to set the network internet settings as detailed below -

GIFFGAFF INTERNET SETTINGS=
Internet and mms settings...

Text "settings" to 2020

If all that fails here are the basic APN settings to manual input...

Manual Settings:

Connection Name: giffgaff
APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
Login - Username: "giffgaff" for all devices or "vertigo" for iPhones and iPads
Password: the password is "password"
Proxy: <<leave blank>>
MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS proxy: 82.132.254.1
MMS port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 10

-------------------
At the end, turn your phone off and then on again – and hopefully (fingers crossed) it should work

I hope that this information helps you to sort out your problem
