Phone is a completely jail broken Orange ZTE Blade AKA San Francisco. There is no trace of Orange software on it and it has the latest available version Android for this model installed.
I have checked all the MMS settings several times.
I have watched the videos and compared the pictures to my phone.
I have created the 2 APNs as directed for this particular model.
I have about £9 credit but with no goodie bag.
And still it won't send MMS messages.
Ordinary texts are fine.
I've tried with data switched off and on.
I've tried with WiFi switched off and on.
O2 coverage isn't great here, but I'm getting 2-3 green bars (sometimes) and, with data switched on, the green 'G' symbol with one or both arrows above it..
What else can I try?

At last I've got it fixed. In the MoDaCo forums there is a thread entitled
MMS problems on Orange UK anyone?
A post yesterday recommended installing an app called Tweakker, which claims to fix MMS problems on several networks including giffgaff. So I installed and ran it.
It creates a new APN named Tweakker which seems to have all the same settings as the ones recommended by giffgaff except the APN type is set to
Whetever this does, I can now send and receive MMS messages.
I'm not sure that I still need one ot either of the two giffgaff APNs, but I'll leave them as they aren't doing any harm.

They will just refer the OP to the community. They are for account related help only.
There may be a maximum limit for the file size when sending MMS....... Phone set or Carrier set.
Are you trying to send extremely large files or are they relatively small? If they are large, could you not compress them?
To test this out try sending a small file, see if it works.
Just a thought........ may be totally wrong!
I've seen suggestions that WiFi should be switched off and data switched on, but does either of these really matter when sending MMS?
When the phone had an Orange SIM I always had data switched off because of the exorbitant cost, and Wi Fi switched on. It would still send MMS messages (unless, unbeknownst to me, it turned data on for the duration of sending).
O2's coverage map is rubbish. It's raining and there are no bars, so I can't test anything.
It will have to wait until tomorrow when I go to Cirencester, there should be coverage there.
