Select O2 pay and go !

Change settings manually :

Android STEP by STEP guide:

Go to ‘Settings’.
Then go to ‘Wireless & networks’.
Continue go to ‘Mobile Networks’.
Then ‘Access Point Names’
Click the Menu button’
Then select ‘New APN’

Connection Name: giffgaff
Username: giffgaff
Password: password

Turn on off airplane mode thats it !

Thanks !

O2 is correct as Giffgaff runs on the O2 network.

See here for Samsung Galaxy S3 manual settings

these s3 settings came from my s3

gg proxy settings can cause some apps to malfuntion like ebay can't list sell , read feedback , read messages

dropbox won't load pic stuck in load mode
if u get any of these problems

then delete proxy settings then apps should work ok they did on my s3
