Hi there @tykeman1


To set up your mms and data APN’s, you have to go into your phones settings...

This is simple for android:

  1. Go to SettingsWireless & Networks > More .. > Mobile Networks > Access Point Name.
  2. Create a new APN
  3. Fill the APN with the settings.

Here is an example...




For Apple devices:


This will replace your current profile with giffgaff's data settings, including the parameters which can't be modified manually (e.g. proxy settings).


MMS settings must be modified manually, see below:


  1. Go to Settings
  2. Go to Mobile (or Cellular)
  3. Go toMobile (or Cellular) Data
  4. Under MMS, enter the setting in the picture above:
  5. Switch mobile data off and on

  For any other devices, visit this link:   Have a nice day!
