The simplest method of setting up your phone is to just text the word "settings" to 2020.

If that doesn't work then see if this does:

Remember to delete all previous settings
before you start by highlighting and selecting
the item in ‘personal settings’ item and click
Option>Add new>Web
Account name
Giffgaff - GPRS
Use pref. Access pt.
Option>Add new>Multi. media
Account name
giffgaff - MMS
Server address
Use pref. Access pt.
Option>Add new>Access pt.
Account name
Acc. Point sett.>Bearer settings>
Pack. Data
Network type
Authentic type
Afterwards, activate each personal settings by
highlighting and holding the selected item and
click activate.
Default config sett.
Personal config
Default in all apps.
Preferred access pt.
switch off/on,
