My goodybag allows unlimited internet, but I can't get online with my Nokia 5800.

How should the phone be set up to get mobile internet?

Many phones can receive their internet settings from giffgaff simply by texting settings to 2020


If this fails, which it may well do on recent smart phones then if you are confident in manually editing your Internet settings, then use the following


GPRS-3G Settings


Connection Name: giffgaff – GPRS

APN - Access Point Name:

Proxy Server Address:
 (some phones prefer you to omit the proxy server and port)

Proxy Port:8080

Login - Username: giffgaff

Password: password

MCC: 234

MNC: 10


MMS Settings


Connection Name: giffgaff – MMS

APN - Access Point Name:

Username: giffgaff

Password: password



MMS proxy:

MMS port: 8080

MCC: 234

MNC: 10

APN type: mms

You probably need the internet settings on your phone configured.

On phones that are not Android, Blackberry or iPhones, you can text the word SETTINGS to 2020 and these will be sent to you.

If you have an ANDROID phone then many people find the easiest way is to connect via WiFi and then download and install the 'giffgaffAPN' App from Google Play and this will install the settings both internet and MMS. There's a guide for Android phones at

In addition, for a BLACKBERRY, you'd need to get the Blackberry Addon, which needs to be purchased at the same time as a GoodyBag. You'd also need to use a browser called Opera (this is easy to download and installed). There's a handy guide at:

If you have an iPHONE, then go to Settings > General > Network > Cellular Data Network and enter

Username = giffgaff
Password = password

If none of that seems to work, try manually editing the internet settings on your phone. The generic settings (i.e. at least some of these elements are applicable to all phones) are as follows:

Connection Name: giffgaff
Access Point Name:
Server Address:
Port: 8080
Login Username: giffgaff
Login Password: password
MCC: 234
MNC: 10
MMS Server:
