What should the APN, username and password be for the giffgaff network because it's showing idata.o2.co.uk as the APN right now. And I can't seem to get 3G working Smiley Sad

Enter the settings into your iPhone exactly like this...



(go to Settings -> General -> Network -> Cellular Data Network) scroll to the bottom then hit RESET SETTINGS, then enter these:


Cellular Data
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password

Visual Voicemail
same as above (or leave blank cos it doesnt work anyway)

MMS
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195:8080
MMS Max Message Size: 2097152
MMS UA Prof URL: leave blank

 

 

Go back to the main settings menu then turn airplane mode on, wait a few seconds then turn it off

Hi

I'm having the same problem with my 3GS iphone.

I've just connected to giffgaff today and I'm transferring my old number tomorrow.

I can use my phone to make calls, and I can connect to the internet via wi fi.

 

I've followed all the instructions to set the phone up, but I don't get the 3G showing in thae status bar and if I turn wi fi off I get "could not activate mobile data network" message.

 

Any ideas?

Double, triple and quadruple check your settings! If there's a typo in any of the details it won't work.
