Hi, I have an iPhone 3G and cannot send MMS messages! I have been into my settings to make sure my 3G is turned on and also the mms setting in messages. I also do have £5 credit and have a £15 goody bag. Can someone help?!?

Have you installed the correct giffgaff settings for your data ??

 

Texting " Settings " to 2020 Won't work with iPhones ...

 

Check your settings against these ...???

 

There are three iPhones in my family that use these settings successfully. (3Gs, 4, 4s)

 

You need to install these manually...

 

 

 

Go to " Settings " ....

          " General " ....

          " Network " ....

Then  " Mobile Data Network "

 

Mobile Data

APN ... giffgaff.com

Username ... giffgaff

Password ... password

Visual Voicemail (just leave as is, giffgaff do not support visual voicemail)

 

MMS

APN ... giffgaff.com

Username ... giffgaff

Password ... password

MMSC http://mmsc-ac.mms.o2.co.uk:10021/mmsc

MMS Proxy 193.113.200.195:8080

Max message size 2097152

MMS UA Prof URL (just leave blank)

Do NOT press the " Reset Settings " button when you’ve done this.

 

Once the settings are in, turn your iphone off ( via the red slider ) till the screen is completely blank. Then reboot. If you do not see the apple logo, the settings will not stick.

 

Then, press “ Settings “…“ Messages “ and ensure that " MMS Messaging " button is set to ON.

 

In " settings " " messages " turn imessages on.

 

Please also ensure that the " Enable 3G " button and the " Mobile Data " button are set to ON. (Press Settings, then General, then Network).

 

Then " Settings " ... " Phone " .... And check " My Number " is correct

 

Go to " Settings " ... " Carrier " and change to O2-UK.

 

 

 

Also note that Picture messages cost 16p and are not included in any goodybags.

Hope this helps.  ..   :smileyhappy:
