I bought a O2 Sony Xperia E on Wednesday and have had no problems with using my giffgaff sim in there for making calls and texts. 

However I cannot connect to the internet through my phone even though I have 1GB on my data allowance, I have looked at the APN's available and it only gives the option of using the  O2 pay&go one. I looked on here earlier and it said about creating a new APN with giffgaff settings on it, I did this but when clicked save on it , it was not added to the APN list. 

I see that on the post I found it says connect to a Wi-Fi connection and delete the APNs available but I do not have a  Wi-Fi connection at home I only have the net on my phone and from my dongle. The only APN it says is available is the O2 pay&go one.


How can I get my phone to save the settings for the giffgaff APN so I can use the net  on my phone?
Any ideas or suggestions will be useful.
