You can try texting settings to 2020 but this method only works for some Android phones,not all of them.


The 3 methods that are guaranteed to work for all Android operating systems except Android 4 (ICS) are:-


You can either follow the guide at


http://support.giffgaff.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/610/kw/android#ANS1

Or connect to the internet by wifi,visit the Google Play and download an app called "giffgaffapn".Once you have downloaded and installed it select the second option that will input all your settings for you.


Or download the apk file for the giffgaffapn app from the link below,copy it to your phone's sd card and install and run it as above.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/29800643/GiffgaffAPN.apk

If you have Android 4 (ICS) the 2 methods to install your settings are:-

Follow the guide linked to above and install them manually.

or

Visit Google Play and download and install an app called "Tweakker ICS APN Beta" which will install them automatically for you.

Also check that you have an active goodybag which allows you to connect to the internet, as you may have just been using air time credit before
