Settings > Wireless Controls > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names > "menu button" > "New APN"

 

Fill in the details below. ( i have listed all the fields listed in the settings screen, just leave the blank ones blank)

 

3G GPRS Settings.

 

Name: giffgaff
APN: giffgaff.com
Proxy:
Port:
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
Server:
MMSC:
MMS proxy:
MMS port:
MCC: 234
MNC: 10
APN type: default 

 

Once you have entered the above settings press the "menu" button and press "save"

 

You need to set up another account for MMS.

 

MMS Settings:

 

 

Name: giffgaff - mms

APN: giffgaff.com

Proxy:

Port:

Username: giffgaff

Password: password

MMSC: 8002

MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195

MMS port: 8080

MCC: 234

MNC: 10

APN type: mms

Thanks
Dann

I don't know the phone, but I assume it will be in the same place as the other, using the same menu directions

The settings posted above are incorrect for the MMS settings.

 

I find it easier to use a single APN for both internet and MMS - you can find the instructions here:

I didn't mean yours, I was talking about the one with the MMS settings that had the MMSC server address missing
