I've just fired up my new GiffGaff SIM in my Galaxy S 2. It asked me if the service was O2 UK Postpay, O2 UK Prepay or Tesco.


I assumed the middle one, wonder if it makes a difference, next time I update my firmware?

do this via wifi, and it will set your phone up correctly for internet.

Android Settings:

Text "Settings" to 2020

Alternatively, you can download the "giffgaff APN" app from the Android Market

Should neither of the above work, click the link below to enter them manually

Thanks for the answers guys. I got the service message and settings shortly afterwards so I imagine I won't see this setting choice again until next time I factory reset.
