Hi, you don't need to edit the VPN settings to use the giffgaff Internet but you will need to install the settings manually as follows
settings > general > scroll down to the bottom and press the reset button then on the next page press the reset network settings and the iPhone should reboot
Once restarted goto the apn settings page Depending on your iPhone iOS version and international language ""British English"" Or ""English""
Settings~Mobile~Mobile Data Network
Settings~Cellular~Cellūlar Data Network
Settings~General~Mobile Data~Mobile Data Network
Settings~General~Cellūlar Data~Cellular Data Network
Now check your settings are the same as these ,they are latest APN Settings
for the iPhone which are slightly different to the normal ones and are the same as the iPhone app http://itunes.com/apps/giffgaff/mygiffgaff recommends / uses Which you can also use to get the Internet settings (but you'll still need the mms settings added manually )
• Username =vertigo
•mms Prōxy = 184.108.40.206:8080
•mms Max Message Size = 2097152
•mms ua Prof URL (just leave blank)
After editing the settings just press the Home Button ,Now please reboot your iPhone
(((General info : The text to 2020 won't install the mms settings on an iPhone , but will only install the (--older unsigned-- ) Internet ones, which will have giffgaff instead of the new username of vertigo
MMS will NOT work unless 3G is ON
Lastly check that the MMS button in the Settings. (Settings~Messages) Make sure MMS Messaging is set to ON.
And remember that MMS / Picture Messages cost 16p (24p for none uk networks )and are not included in any Goodybag ( Mobile Data must be on to receive MMS messages)
Heres the same settings showing from the giffgaff iPhone app
