Hello, I'm a newbie here so please go easy on me Smiley Indifferent

Just got my iPhone 3gs, how do I go about configuring the settings to enable me to use my free internet? I use wi-fi when at home and just assumed it would work but went out today and nothing happen, don't know how I go about sorting this out?

 

Thanks in advance!

That doesn't seem to be working, like if I try and use safari it says "safari cannot open the page because it is not connected to the internet"

Would it bbe worth me downloading iSO4, would that solve the problem?

You need to connect through Wifi to use that method.

IOS4 is supposed to configure itself automatically

 

or manually configure with

 

APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com

Login - Username: giffgaff

What, you can't use Safari via the web, just the wi-fi?

Just tried the BBC News app and it won't update nor would facebook...

What's different about iOS4, would it harm anything or delete anything?

 

In the APN bit it says those things...

Yes you can use safari via the 3g web, I think he meant that the auto config option that the person directed you to in his link needed to be run over wi-fi

No what I mean is that method needs to connect to the web to download the settings to enable internet on your phone. Until you enable the internet settings you can only use WiFi. So use WiFi go to that site and it will setup your phone to connect to the internet via giffgaff
