Texting 2020 does not work for iphones.  You have to manually change the settings on your iphone to use internet & MMS.  For giffgaff settings Press SETTINGS, then GENERAL, then NETWORK, then CELLULAR/MOBILE DATA NETWORK and enter the following settings:-





Cellular Data






Visual Voicemail(just leave as is)








MMS Proxy193.113.200.195:8080

Max message size307200

MMS UA Prof URL(just leave blank)




Once settings have been input you may have to turn your iphone off and on again.


Also I assume you know that the voicemail button on an iphone will not work with giffgaff, just dial 443 for voicemail.


Do not press the restore settings button once settings are input.
