You do not need to turn off wifi, but you do need to install the giffgaff APN settings. You do this in your iPhone's settings menu by choosing the green icon 4 from the top called Cellular or Mobile Data, then choosing Cellular Data Network or Mobile Data Network. The options you need are APN, username vertigo, and password password. That's literally the word password, not your giffgaff password or anything else.

All my posts are specific to you; I never copy/paste from a script.

If you need an agent, use and choose the relevant category. Please refrain from using the link, the SIM limit form, or "choosing 30" from the drop-down menu.

Hi there and welcome to the community.
To set up your internet and mms "settings" using giffgaff,using your iphone.

If you have access to wifi,simply go to the app store, and download the "my giffgaff" app,or simply click onto the link below to go straight there and download the app.

Once you have downloaded the app,open it and click onto MORE.
Then click onto Apn "settings" Your "settings" will now be installed for you.

If you would like to manually enter your "settings". Here they are.

1) check if you have an old profile.

2) Head to "settings"-General-profile. If you cant see an old profile,move onto number 2.If you Can see an old profile,tap it and press remove.

2) Go back to "settings"-General and press reset.

3) Press reset network "settings" and follow through.This will delete your wifi passwords,and you may need to enter your passcode,at which point your iphone will reboot.

4) Go back to "settings"-General- mobile data or network,depending on your ios version.

5) Tap mobile data network. Now under mobile data.enter. Username-vertigo Password-password

Leave visual voicemail as it is. 6) scroll down,under mms enter. Username-vertigo Password-password MMSC- MMS max message size-2097152

finally,give your iphone a few minutes to think and you should be up and running.

Also take a look a great guide,by clicking onto the link below.
