The media messaging didn't work with the standard Android settings at all.
The one that I have working is the mmsc-ac.MMS.o2.co.UK:10021/mmsc
I know giffgaff runs on the o2 network, but I expected something similar to the standard Android settings.
What settings are other Nexus 4 owners using?

With these settings on a Nexus 4 this is what i receive every time i am sent an mms, sending one doesn't work either. Have asked an agent multiple times and they say they don't troubleshoot handsets and then we just keep going round in circles, I'm told to ask the community which didnt work ( http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Help-Ask-the-comm
