Hi all

 

I have just set up a data sim and added a gigabag to get it up and running

 

the GG SIM is in an O2 donlgle however when I adda  ew profile with teh normal giffgaff APN settings the dongle still wants to connect using teh following O2 settings

 

02 DATA PAYG


APN = m-bb.o2.co.uk
Username = o2bb
Password = password
Phone number = *99#

 

all seems to be working OK and the connection speed is better than my old vodafone dongle.

 

My giffgaff accounts shows some data used so the connection is clearly working.

 

Is there any problem to carry on with the above APN settings?

 

cheers

You have to change them to the giffgaff settings:

APN = giffgaff.com
user name = giffgaff
password = password
Phone number = your number.
