Hi i had a number1 showing on my iphone 4,  on the settings menu/ icon  I understood that this was to tell me i needed to update my itunes settings /program, I dont have a wifi  connection at home just a wired/ cable connection to my computer, i downloaded the update at a friends house who has wifi, On thesame day as doing the update [19th april my goodybag was due to expire] I purchased a new goodybag on the 20th of april and have recieved confirmation at it is in force, I can make and recieve calls and text messages on my iphone4 but when i try too connect to the internet via safari i get a message saying. Could not activate mobile data network you are not subscribed to a mobile data service.  Does this mean i need to manually update or re enter my internet settings on the phone and could someone please tell me a step by step guide how to do this using a cable connection from my computer to my phone because as i said before i dont have a wifi connection, many thanks in advance for any help given, billydoc.

If everything is set up correctly after reading the information on the link "Adrian74" posted, check your connection settings once over. There are problems with connection at the moment according to other people in the community, GiffGaff are resolving this at the moment.
