INTERNET SETTINGS

firstly, try texting the word SETTINGS to 2020
-or-
Manually input then into your phone's connection settings as follows:
(your phone may not ask for ALL the settings, just put in what you need)

Connection Name: giffgaff - GPRS
APN-Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
Proxy Server Address: 193.113.200.195
Proxy Port: 8080
Login-Username: giffgaff
Password: password
MMC: 234
MNC: 10

Make sure the new settings are ACTUALLY SELECTED (usually a green dot or a tick next to the new giffgaff settings)

DONT FORGET TO RESTART YOUR PHONE ONCE SETTINGS ARE ENTERED SO THAT YOUR PHONE CAN RECOGNISE THEM

Firstly is your sim activated, what does it say when you dial *100*7# and *100# and does your number show in my giffgaff. Have you tried editing settings that you already have in your phone, perhaps edit u2 settings if you have them

calls+txt have nothing to do with internet settings man.
something else is the problem.
either phone hasnt been unlocked properly (try a friends sim in it to see)
or its a dodgy sim (get a replacement usualy in 3days)
