ive tried countless times to text settings to 2020, the text sends but i dont get a reply at all. I used to get a text before but now i just dont receive anything.


the phone im trying to get settings on is a samsung wave s5250. i cant use wi-fi as there are no wireless connections to connect to, ive tried entering the settings manually and they dont work either.  it just wont connect at all.


help would be appreciated

Go to the Samsung website and send the settings for O2 UK to your giffgaff number. Then edit them to work on giffgaff.

For the WAP settings you should only need to change the APN to, the user name (login ID) to giffgaff, and the password to password. For MMS, also change the server and/or the MMSC to You can change the profile names by replacing O2 with giffgaff too, if you want to.

Remember that if you want to use any web-enabled applications or games on the handset, you'll need to change their settings to use the giffgaff WAP profile.

Good luck!
