Hi Folks,

 

I've just had a new android smartphone (my very first!) and have transferred my old number over to Giffgaff and bought a £10 goody bag but cannot get an internet connection and don't know what to do.  Can anyone help please?

 

Thanks.

text settings to 2020 or because you have an android phone you could go to the market and download the giffgaff APN for free.

Which phone have you got 

 

If you can use wifi, download the giffgaffapn app here:https://market.android.com/details?id=com.paulshirley.android.giffgaffsetapn&feature=search_result

through the market app/google play on your phone. Install, run & select option 2, then option 1.

 

Or download Gaffer here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mstubbs.gaffer&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMS...

 

If you have the ICS operating system go here: http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-Top-Tips/Internet-and-MMS-settings-for-Samsung-Galax...

 

or if you need to enter the settings manually follow this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQDm09iOZmc

                                                   

Hope this helps
