Hello, try this guide
Text the word SETTINGS to 2020 or you can install them
manually if that doesn't do the trick

Here are the Android 4 internet & MMS manual settings

Go to Settings > More Settings > Mobile network > Access Point Names. Press the Menu key then select +New APN

In the boxes, type the following details:

● Name: giffgaff
● APN: giffgaff.com
● MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
● MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195
● MMS port: 8080

(don't alter any other settings in the APN list)
Now press the Menu button again and select Save.
Tap the circle next to the profile named giffgaff so a green/blue dot appears. Restart your mobile and you
should be connected.

i agree twith avid_fan these are the  settings. there are loads of variations but these work fine :-)

 

he has omited username and password which must be input too. giffgaff is the username and password is the password. have owned an s4 and currently own an s3.

i have checked what i have in my settings :-) and what i have is identical

There are 3 ways to set up your MMS and internet settings for your phone 

 

1. Text settings” to 2020

 

2.Connect to WiFi and download and install an app on your phone called “tweakker” 

   This will put the correct APN settings in for you

3 You can set up your android phone manually as follows

 

Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

Menu button  - New APN

Enter the following

Name: giffgaff

APN: giffgaff.com

Username: giffgaff

Password: password

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

 

 

Finally if all else fails then there is a manual guide to setting up your android, just follow this link
