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
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 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
