I'm trying to set up an HTC Desire HD. I have been able to program as per "giffgaffer's guide to Android" but internet still doesn't work. I've read somewhere that there may be a data bar on my new sim - is this possible? PS. the phone is ok as internet does work with a virgin sim. Any help would be brill.

Try downloading the giffgaffAPN app from the market using wifi and running with option 2.

 

Added this often sorts out settings problems.  If that doesn't work then contact an agent (links on your My giffgaff page) and ask them if you have a data bar which they can remove. http://support.giffgaff.com/app/ask

FULL SETTINGS FOR INTERNET AND MMS

INTERNET SETTINGS

firstly, try texting the word SETTINGS to 2020
-or-
Manually input then into your phone's connection settings as follows:
(your phone may not ask for ALL the settings, just put in what you need)

Make sure the new settings are ACTUALLY SELECTED (usually a green dot or a tick next to the new giffgaff settings)

DONT FORGET TO RESTART YOUR PHONE ONCE SETTINGS ARE ENTERED SO THAT YOUR PHONE CAN RECOGNISE THEM

First of all texting SETTINGS to 2020 will not work on Android phones so don't waste your time trying.

The following step by step guide will walk you through installing the settings for Internet and MMS.  The settings for both Internet and MMS have been combined into a single APN and will work for most Android phones running the following Android versions - 1.6, 2.1 and 2.2

The most common mistakes are the username and password.. They are NOT your giffgaff login details, the password is the word password and the username is actually giffgaff
Dont forget to restart

The giffgaff APN is a fairly good and quick way to get settings but there could be a data bar on the SIM. If settings are ok ask an agent to check. Ensure it's not in airplane mode too Smiley Wink

Once you check you have the correct settings and if it's still it working the. Contact an agent to check about the bar, I had one took me a while to fathom out the problem.
Re the settings hubby has a Galaxy ace and it's android and the txt worked a treat, so I don't think it's fair to say they won't work for all android phones.

On my HTC Desire, giffgaff by SKINKERS in android market (via WiFi) worked a treat.
Desires don't like other APN's so delete all but giffgaff.
