If its a native phone then it should be automatically connected.  Just try and use the internet.

Try to reconfigure your phone to these GG settings.

Here are the basic APN Settings. Which "should" work on all phones.

 

Manual Settings:

 

GPRS-3G Settings

 

Connection Name: giffgaff - GPRS

APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com

Proxy Server Address: 193.113.200.195

Proxy Port:8080

Login - Username: giffgaff

Password: password

MCC: 234

MNC: 10

 

 

MMS Settings

 

Connection Name: giffgaff - MMS

APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com

Username: giffgaff

Password: password

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

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

MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195

MMS port: 8080

MCC: 234

MNC: 10

APN type: mms

 

If these don't work, can you get o2 coverage in your area? - webmap.o2.co.uk

Or is maintenance happening in your area? - status.o2.co.uk

 

If no, you most likely have a data ban, ask an agent about this!
