Try this see if it helps

menu - messaging - options - settings - text message - message centres, make sure it set to giffgaff and the number is +447802002606. now press back twice and make sure that your reply via same centre is set to yes.

 

Hope this helps

Is it a MMS or normal Text?

If MMS , text "mms" to "1010" for auto setup

DOES. NOT. WORK.

 

And never has worked.

Are you able to get into the messaging area? Do you mean that when you click send nothing happens?

As said above this has never worked - texting mms to 1010 is an o2 settings code to set up the iphones on their network -  http://getsettings.o2.co.uk/ServeSettingsWebApp/
