Here's how to set up your phone, this includes data and MMS:

Go to:
System Settings>Wireless & Networks>Mobile Networks>Access Point Names. Create new APN (you might have to select this from a pop up menu)

Name: giffgaff
APN: giffgaff.com
Proxy:
Port:
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
Server:
MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195
MMS port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 10
APN type: not set

Leave any other fields at the way they are.
Make sure you save your settings
Make sure your new APN is selected

Or you can download this app and run it to help you set your phone up:
