Hello.  I couldn't find the information on this site but it seems I can't send picture messages with the GiffGaff sim card, can anyone clarify this for me?  If the answer is no I can't, is there some kind of bolt-on available?  Thanks

You need credit as there are no goodybags that include mms messages.


Edit - Have you got the correct mms settings installed on your phone if you have credit?

it seems u dont have internet and sms,mms settings yet, just text SETTINGS to 2020 u will get ur setting then u will be able to send picture messages,if above sisnt work then do it manuallyas below:


Try the easy option first, but this is not always compatible with new smartphones.
Text "settings to "2020"
Or "mms" to "1010"

Here are the basic APN Settings. Which "should" work on all phones.

Manual Settings:

GPRS-3G Settings

Connection Name: giffgaff - GPRS
APN - Access Point Name:
