The settings are as follows

 

APN and MMS settings 

 

APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com

Login - Username: giffgaff
Password: password

 

 

MMS

APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password

Server - http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

Port - http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195
MMS port: 8080

 
Or
