You don't say what phone so here goes.

 

To set up data and picture messages (MMS) you need to make sure that you have the right settings.

The giffgaff settings are:

Connection Name: giffgaff
APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
Login - Username: giffgaff
Password:  leave blank
MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS proxy: 82.132.254.1
MMS port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 10

Also, it is worth installing the Giffgaff app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.giffgaffmobile.controller

Check your settings are correct and if your phone's fully updated .

if you reinstall the sim it should update the settings

 Texting "settings" to 2020 will stop working shortly

Most phone manufacturers will soon start including giffgaff's APN settings in their software updates, for most newer phones.

This means that simply putting a giffgaff SIM card into a phone with the settings will automatically set up the internet and choose giffgaff as the carrier

If this doesn't work manually install the settings

So to manually set up these are settings required

Username: "giffgaff"
APN: "giffgaff.com"
password: [Leave blank]
Proxy: [Leave blank]

MMS settings:
APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com

Username: giffgaff

Password: [ leave blank ]


MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

MMS proxy: 82.132.254.1

MMS port: 8080

MCC: 234

MNC: 10

APN type: mms

Do NOT press the " Reset Settings " button when you’ve done this. Just restart your phone.

iPhones and iPads can't edit the proxy manually, so it's best to reset the settings and then use

. Android and other OS phones will have to update it manually if a software update didn't work.
