Hi,have you tried the app's from the play store ? here's a few of the better ones
the APN APP by Paul Shirley , which can install the APN settings on older android devices or can guide you through the settings on later OS (4.2 & over )
there's also this app by quetonix ( qasman )
But here's the offical my giffgaff app which can only show you the APN settings , plus the usual balance and goodybag allowances (& community forum )
If that doesn't work on your phone then
you could also seë if the standard android APN settings
can do the trick by adding them manually
Go to Settings.
Choose More Settings.
Choose Mobile networks.
Choose Access Point Names.
Press the Menu (or the left physical ) button on your phone and choose New APN.
Tap Name and type giffgaff, then tap OK.
Tap APN and type giffgaff.com then tap OK.
Tap MMSC and type http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
Tap MMS proxy and type 126.96.36.199
Tap MMS port and type 8080
some devices using
4.2 & above
may need any of the following fields
Bearer : Unspecified
MVNO type : IMSI
MVNO value : 23410x
APN protocol : IPv4
APN Roaming protocol : IPv4
Authentificationtype : PAP or PAP or CHAP
APN Type : default,supl,mms
if the keyboard appears you can put in default,* instead
Make sure not to confuse "browser proxy" and "MMS proxy". The first one must be left [blank] and the value for MMS Proxy is 188.8.131.52
Now press the Menu button on your phone again, and choose Save
Tap the little circle to the side of the profile named giffgaff on the list. It should turn Green or Blue
Once you've restarted your phone then you should be set up for giffgaff's mobile data and MMS settings.
if for any reason you can't set the profile after editing then you should also try this guide on resetting the profiles to defaults ~here
