I have just had a iOS 6 update for my iPad 2 and have lost my Giffgaff settings. The iPad has reverted to O2 settings. Could you please let me know what the APN address for Giffgaff so I can get back online? Regards Davidsnr.

Here are the basic APN Settings. Which "should" work on all phones.

Manual Settings:

GPRS-3G Settings

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


MMS Settings

Connection Name: giffgaff - MMS
APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
Server: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195
MMS port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 10
APN type: mms

If these don't work, can you get o2 coverage in your area? - webmap.o2.co.uk
Or is maintenance happening in your area? - status.o2.co.uk

If no, you most likely have a data ban, ask an agent about this!

Try texting "settings" to 2020 first and see if that works

From your iPhone home screen, click on the icon "Settings" > click "General" > click "Network" > click "Mobile Data Network" > tap on the words next to "APN" and you'll then be able to edit the settings

 

  • APN -  giffgaff.com
  • Username -  vertigo
  • Password - password (This is the word "password" not your giffgaff password)

 

 

  MMS Settings


 Back to top

 

From your iPhone home screen, click on the icon "Settings" > click "General" > click "Network" > click "Mobile Data Network" > scroll down the page a bit, you'll see "MMS" settings tap on the words next to "APN" and you'll then be able to edit the settings

 

  • APN - giffgaff.com
  • Username - vertigo
  • Password - password (This is the word "password" not your giffgaff password)
  • MMSC - http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002 
  • MMS Max Message Size - 2097152

 

N.B. MMS will NOT work unless 3G is ON. (Settings > General > Network) Make sure Enable 3G is set to ON.

Also check the MMS button in the Settings. (Settings > Messages) Make sure MMS Messaging is set to ON.

And finally remember that picture messages cost 16p and are not included in any goodybags, i.e. you need credit!
