Please don't post telling me I need credit, I know and I have plenty
Ever since I joined giffgaff, I've been unable to send/receive MMS messages. I've tried with 3 different phones and a variety of settings - entered manually, via 2020 and also with the APN app. I've deleted all other APNs.
I've spoken to agents, who told me it must be my sim card, so I replaced it - but still can't send/receive MMS.
The message I get when attempting to send a picture message is 'Service not activated on network'. If somebody else tries to send me one, I get a text message with a link to the O2 website and a password to enter - which I always thought was some sort of spam/scam thing until very recently.
Has anybody else ever had this issue and found a solution?
At the moment I'm using a Google Nexus 4 with the latest Jellybean settings I found here - as well as the older Android settings, just in case.
I've also tried it in a Samsung Galaxy 2 with the APN app and 2020 and in an iPhone 3GS with various settings.
I'm baffled too!
There are 2 ways to set up your internet settings and MMS for your phone to work
1.Connect to WiFi and download and install this App and run the Giffgaff APN, it should set it all up for you automatically
2. Another way is to set up your android phone manually as follows
Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names
Menu button - New APN
Enter the following
MMS proxy: 184.108.40.206
MMS port: 8080
