Hi Pushkinia,

Have you tried rebooting your device after applying these settings? Sometimes the updates aren't instant and require a reboot.

Have you damaged your sim cutting it down.
Here are the settings.
Giffgaff iphone settings

You need a active goodybag or credit.

Go settings/ general and delete any profile installed incliding giffgaff.

Press MENU

enter the following settings:-


Username: giffgaff
Password: password

Visual Voicemail (Just Leave as is) giffgaff is not an official carrier so it will not work


Username: giffgaff
Password: password
MMS Proxy:
Max message size: 2097152
MMS UA Prof URL: just leave blank

N.B. MMS will NOT work unless 3G is ON. (Settings > General > Network) Make sure Enable 3G is set to ON.
Also check the MMS button in the Settings. (Settings > Messages) Make sure MMS Messaging is set to ON.
And finally remember that Picture messages cost 16p and are not included in any goodybags. i.e. you need credit!

Once settings have been input you may have to turn your iphone off and on again
If I helped click ''best answer and kudos'' thanks.
