There are 2 ways to set up your settings for your phone to work

 

1.Connect to WiFi and download and install this App and run the Giffgaff APN, it should set it all up for you automatically

2. Another way is to set up your android phone manually as follows

Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

Menu button  - New APN

Enter the following

Or, to setup your Android device manually:

Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

Use the settings at http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-Top-Tips/Android-Settings/td-p/54687 . An alternative to the manual setup method is to download the Tweakker app from the Google Play Store via wifi and use that to configure your phone for use with Giffgaff.
