Hi all


I hope someone can help me.

I am trying to set up a Nokia Lumia 520 to recieve MMS messages.

I am unable to enter a VPN as its not giving me the options to do so.

Also no not have the option to create this from an app is in the guide that someone has posted on here.

I would be really grateful if someone knows the solution to this.

I have also tried texting settings to 2020 but no joy there

Happy Christmas

Settings>More Settings>Mobile Networks>Add New APN


Press Name and type giffgaff, then tap OK.
Press APN and type then tap OK.
Press password and type password  (the password is "password")

Press MMSC and type
Press  MMS proxy and type
Press MMS port and type 8080

Maximum MMS size - (leave empty)
IP type - IP4v6MCC: 234

MNC: 10 
Press the Menu button on your phone again, and choose Save.


Make this my current APN - press the little circle to the right of the profile named giffgaff on the list. It should turn green.
Your phone should be set up for giffgaff's internet and MMS settings.

Hi Kudo

Thanks for your suggestion

I tried 2020

The message back says we are really sorry but you need to change your settings manually
