try a mannual roam here : http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Using-giffgaff/Force-the-change-of-SMS-settings/ta-p/4871794
Hi,have you tried using an app from the play store to help you install the giffgaff Internet settings
or the offical giffgaff app
if that doesn't work you could try putting the APN settings in manually
Go to Settings.
Choose More Settings.
Choose Mobile networks.
Choose Access Point Names.
Press the Menu (or the left physical ) button on your phone and choose New APN.
Tap Name and type giffgaff, then tap OK.
Tap APN and type giffgaff.com then tap OK.
Tap MMSC and type http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
Tap MMS proxy and type 126.96.36.199
Tap MMS port and type 8080
some devices (4.2 & above ) may need more settings
Bearer : Unspecified
MVNO type : IMSI
MVNO value : 23410x
APN protocol : IPv4
APN Roaming protocol : IPv4
Authentificationtype : PAP or CHAP
APN Type : default,supl,mms
Make sure not to confuse "browser proxy" and "MMS proxy". The first one must be left [blank] and the value for MMS Proxy is 188.8.131.52
Now press the Menu button on your phone again, and choose Save
Tap the little circle to the right of the profile named giffgaff on the list. It should turn Green or Blue
Once You've restarted your phone then you should be set up for giffgaff's internet and MMS settings.
if for any reason you can't set the profile after editing then you should also try this guide on resetting the profiles to defaults ~
I have an s5 that since repairs has not got any 4G coverage. It maybe because I LOGGED in to O2 monthly paid but I can't seem to find the settings.
Any help would be appreciated.
You need to select an O2 APN.
This will take you to the O2APN and the edit page.
Go through the settings and put in the giffgaff ones.
