Hi

 

Internet settings try installing your settings manually Set up your internet settings again manually Have a look at this guide for the internet settings and mms settings you need http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Settings-for-your​-device/Internet-and-MMS-settings-APN-guide/ta-p/...

 

please be aware that MMS cost 16p and are NOT included in ANY goodybags* if you have credit ensure you have the correct mms settings

If the above doesn't work I would advise you to do a factory reset and start again fresh.

I use a program downloaded from playstore called whatsapp which is very good and uses your data but a very small amount.

I am setting it up manually, and please read my previous replies before suggesting apps which I have already discussed that I cannot use them.

Nope, doesn't work. Still just sends forever but never actually goes.

If you can receive it then your settings are correct you dont have credit that is why you are not able to send it, MMS come out of credit 16p to send one.

ok, have you got your data turned on? 

 

try restarting your phone and turn on data then try sending MMS see if that helps.

@mariam222 Yes I have the data on, and I've tried restarting the phone multiple times. I have more than enough data and the exact APN settings as other Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini owners who's MMS messaging works.

@isabel1066 Many people who I text do not have proper data on their phone as they aren't using smartphones, I'm not for an alternative, I want to be able to use it normally!
