Hi, Please see below

Internet Settings!

1.Send a text message free of charge with the word settings to 2020:

2.If that doesnt work then please follow this guide:

Try these settings > Go to internet settings or Wireless & Networks on your mobile phone

"MMS Settings"

Send the word MMS to 1010 Via Sms/Text from your mobile, If the settings installed then the next step is to power your phone off then power back on then you should be up and running,

If the settings did not work by sending a text then I suggest doing it manually found below.

Manual Input
( Go to Multimedia Message Settings)

MMS Settings

Connection Name: giffgaff - MMS
APN - Access Point Name:
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
MMS proxy:
MMS port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 10
APN type: mms

MMS also cost 16p each to send and they are not included in any of the goodybags as a free bundle or a add-on,

They will be charged from your existing payg / airtime balance if you wanted to send MMS
