Make sure the phone is fully unlocked then enter the settings

 

Here are the settings for giffgaff so you can connect to the internet and MMS. Text "SETTINGS" to 2020, should this not work, please choose handset
OS from the list below and click the link:

BLACKBERRY - http://bit.ly/jitbblackberry

WINDOWS PHONE - http://bit.ly/jitbwindowsmobile

Another alternative is to use the link below , Tweakker helps Giffgaff customers connect quickly and easily to the Internet and MMS services.
