I recently got this phone,Sony Xperia E, I can not use my mobile internet. I have tried very much through these methods: -


1. Tried getting automatic settings via text

2. I tried the manual method of setting up, wherever i tried to input the settings manually it does not save.

There are 3 ways to set up your MMS and internet settings for your phone 


1. Text settings” to 2020


2.Connect to WiFi and download and install an app on your phone called “tweakker” 

   This will put the correct APN settings in for you


3 You can set up your android phone manually as follows


Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

Menu button  - New APN

Enter the following

Name: giffgaff


Username: giffgaff

Password: password



MMS proxy:

MMS port: 8080

MCC: 234

MNC: 10



Finally if all else fails then there is a manual guide to setting up your android, just follow this link

Ensure you have the correct settings,

To get the Android settings Text "SETTINGS" to 2020, should this not work, please follow link below to guide to enter in manually.

Or, if you have a wifi internet connection, install and run the tweakker app from the Play Store

I don't think anyone's mentioned just installing the android giffgaff settings app through WiFi.

Did you restart your phone after putting the settings in ?
