Hi, I've got Samsung S4, activated the goodybags for £12, followed the guide to activate the internet for android. The problem is, that I've got a connection, but it drops randomly and doesn't work properly. Please help.

Check the signal in your area to check for any faults with the network in your area. Do so by going to this link

If everything is all right with the signal in your area then try a manual roam which should update your connection with the network.

Make sure you have the correct apn settings for your handset to do this: Text "Settings" to 2020. If this doesnt work, then use one of the link below based on the handset

Blackberry - Android - Windows Phone - Iphone - Others-

Go to the google play store and download Tweaker APN app, open it and choose giffgaff as the network. It will then install the settings for you.

Android STEP by STEP guide:

go to settings /wireless & networks / mobile networks /access point names /

Enter the following information;
Connection Name ... giffgaff
APN ...
Username ... giffgaff
Password ... password

Press the menu key and select (save)
Tap the circle next to it to see a green light.

Several things can cause problems with internet access. First check that you have an active goodybag and also check that the goodybag still has a data allowance if it is not one with unlimited data. If you do not have a data allowance, check that you have sufficient credit for data. Also check that data connections are enabled on the phone. If all these are okay, delete the settings on your phone and set them up from scratch using the instructions as mentioned below for the giffgaff internet settings and then switch the phone off and then on again. Hopefully that will get the internet working again.

here are the gg internet settings
