Check your internet settings are correct by:


Texting "settings" to 2020


or input them manually through the settings in your phone:

APN - Access Point Name:

Proxy Server Address:

Proxy Port: 8080

Username: giffgaff

Password: password

MCC: 234

O2 Status and Coverage

Check the O2 status and coverage:

o2 coverage:



A quick restart and/or a reboot of the device can help you get reception on your phone. If these don't help then sometimes you may need to restore the device to factory settings (how it was when you took it out of the box) but then you will need to reinput your internet settings.


Airplane/Offline Mode

Turning the device into airplane/offline mode and back into normal mode can, a lot of the time, get you a bar or two of reception in bad coverage areas but also full reception if it just a temporary network issue!
