Hi. See here.

All phone settings.

You need to enter the gg apn settings into your phone. But you don't say what phone you have.

Text "SETTINGS" to 2020, click on the link and it should enter the giffgaff settings into your phone.

Or, click on this link to manually enter the giffgaff settings for all phones.

See here for MMS / internet settings. Firstly text " settings " to 2020. See how that goes ( only works for some phones )

Here is a general guide - http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Help-Ask-the-community-got-stuck/How-do-I-update-my-giffgaff-settin...

If you want more specific advice, reply with more details of your phone and operating system.

Have you go the right internet settings?
You can text "settings" to 2020 and get the settings sent to your phone.
Or try putting data settings into your phone manually:
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: vertigo
Password: password

And then restart you phone.

Good Luck.

Text settings to 2020 from your handset

First, please note that you cannot use a goodybag with unlimited data on your iPad. This is strictly forbidden and your SIM will be blocked. Any other goodybag/a gigabag/normal credit is fine though.

 

First, Go to Settings, then WiFi, and turn WiFi off. This enables the internet settings to be successfully input.

 

 

Now, go to Settings again, then Cellular (if available), then Cellular/Mobile Data, and make sure Cellular/Mobile Data is switched on.

 

 

Then choose Cellular/Mobile Data Network. In the boxes, type:

 

APN: giffgaff.com

Username: giffgaff

Password: password

 

 

 

Now power off your iPad and switch it on again. The internet settings are now complete.

N.B. If the Cellular/Mobile Data tab does not appear, see this guide:http://www.bit.ly/iphonenocellulardata

Your iPad will say O2-UK as the carrier, because giffgaff uses O2's signal. If you would like to change the text to giffgaff, there's a long winded way of doing this which requires jailbreaking.  PM me if interested.

 

Also, the View Account button in Cellular/Mobile data will not work, but simply log onto your giffgaff username on the website to find out how many MB you have left.
