Hi all recently got new phonr and transferred my giffgaff sim into it. Tried to getting settings but traditianal text way didnt work. After searching these forums I downloaded the giffgaff apn app from google play and followed all the instrutions but when I clicked save nothing came up. Ive tried this several timea now both when connected to wifi and when not. It hasnt worked at all. I cant send or receive picture messages or use the internet and its really annoying me. Never had problem befoee.
