Hello,

 

I cannot send/receive MMS. When I text "settings" to 2020 I receive a text saying "We had problems dealing with your request for settings..." I saved the MMS settings on my iPhone as said on giffgaff.com but it is still not working.

Could you please advise?

Thanks

I wish members would stop telling people to text 2020 for settings, it doesn't work with smartphones and that's what most people have!

How to Giffgaff iPhone iOS4 & iOS5

The settings you should input under Settings>General>Network>Cellular Data Network
 
For MMS the latest iPhone specifics are: 
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
MMSC: http://mmsc-ac.mms.o2.co.uk:10021/mmsc
MMS Proxy: 193.113.200.195:8080
MMS Max Message Size: 2097152
 
Once that is done go to Settings go to Messages and check that "MMS Messaging is turned ON 
(NOTE > MMS ARE CHARGED @ 16P)
 
Then Switch your iPhone OFF and then back on.
 
MMS Troubleshooting:
1>If you are unable to use MMS then re-check your settings for any typos.
2>Check you have enough credit on your giffgaff account - not just a goodybag, MMS are not included in goodybags or free GG to GG calls & texts
 
Voicemail
>Giffgaff doesn't support visual voicemail
>it is not possible to change the default voicemail number which is dialled by the voicemail tab in the call app. Create a contact called voicemail which you keep in favorites (voicemail number is 443)
>If you want a good visual voicemail alternative get the ON app which does that and much more (or Hullomail which isn't as good)

Have you any credit in addition to your goodybag? Mms messages cost 16p a.d aren't included in goodybags.
