I've just received my 32GB Nexus 5 today.  For anyone who has already set up this phone, did you have to manually enter the Internet settings or anything else whilst setting up the phone?

If you did, then could you please reply back with the details.

 

Also, with the £12 Goodybag, is the Internet truly unlimited or is there a fair usage limit?  (I'm NOT looking to tether data anyway)

 

Has anyone with a Nexus 5 had iussues with giffgaff sevice with the phone signal and 3G?

 

Your help would be much appreciated, and congrats for those who have the Nexus 5!

Feel free to accept as solution and kudos pls Smiley Very Happy

There's no fair use policy, it is unlimited Smiley Happy

 

You can download Giffgaff APN to do your settings for you, it's in the Play store.

Does the streaming depend on the type of content?

No, but if you accumulate several GB over a short period in streaming, your usage will likely trigger the system as it is unlikely to be typical for use on a mobile phone.
