I have an ipad three which I'm trying to connect via 3g to the interent.

 

I have bought (and strangely used) a £7.50 Gigabag and have topped up with a further £15.00

 

I have changed the settings to giffgaff etc.

 

I've restarted the Ipad.

 

I've turned off both WiFi and Cellular access and then turned back on Mobile.

 

I have tried to email an agent but each time I try the page comes up with an error code.

 

This is driving me nuts.

 

I can access perfectly via my home and office broadband.

 

The little sign on the Ipad proudly states 3G

 

Please help someone...

 

Cheers

 

Mark

Check your settings against these + make sure you activated the device via iTunes:

 

APN: giffgaff.com

user name: giffgaff

password: password

number to dial: *99#

Are you APN settings correct? Has your previous gigabag expired? If it has not then you will not be able to use the new one until then.

Enter these settings into your iPad

Go to Settings, then Cellular/Mobile Data, then APN Settings. In the boxes, type:

APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password

Now power off your iPad and switch it on again. The internet settings are now complete.

When entering the settings don't press reset
Then turn pad off and on
Also could use the Onavo app as I will install the settings to set it up
