Two things.

 

1) It works on Vodafone so it has Vodafone settings

 

2) It MAY still be locked to Vodafone

 

The answer to (1) is to log in to the MiFi (from the manual)

 

Logging In to the Web Management Page

1. Make sure the connection between the Mobile WiFi

and the Wi-Fi device or computer is working

normally.

2. Open the browser, and enter http://192.168.1.1 in

the address box.

3. Enter the user name and password to log in to the

web management page.

Note:

The default user name is admin.

The default password is admin.

 

Then follow these instructions to enter the giffgaff settings

APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
Login - Username: giffgaff
Password: the password is "password" (no ")

 

(2) is rather more tricky to be sure of.

 

Why do you think it is unlocked ?

Text the word settings to 2020 and install those settings.

If that doesn't work, you will need to set your APN up:

Connection Name: giffgaff
APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
Login - Username: giffgaff
Password: the password is "password" for all devices or "vertigo" for iPhones and iPads
Server: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195
MMS port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 10

Thank s for your reply but i`m still none the wiser to what it is i should do. the wifi connects to my web page but not to giffgaff. com so i can`t set up gigabag or anything..

thanks for your reply and i did save those settings to my sim in unlocked phone but i still can`t access giffgaff web page on my laptop to get started. so i have nowhere to set up data bundles or get info etc. it must be the sim as i put in my old vodaphone sim and it connects me straight away, or am i missing something?
