MMS Settings

 

Go to:
System Settings>Wireless & Networks (more. . .)>Mobile Networks>Access Point Names. Create new APN (you might have to select this from a pop up menu)

APN: giffgaff.com
Proxy:
Port:
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195
MMS port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 10
APN type: not set

Make sure you save your settings.

Make sure that your data connection is active and that you are NOT connected to wifi.

Download the app "Tweakker APN INTERNET MMS" from Googleplaystore. Open it and install the giffgaff settings, then reboot your phone.

What app are you using to open the message?

 

I know this sounds daft, but some people have reported that until they opened an MMS in the stock messaging app, they couldn't open one in any other messaging app.
