try these setting as they work on my iphone 5 and reboot your phone

ios6) Settings > General > Mobile data > mobile data network
Under APN put:
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password (this is the word "password")
leave visual voicemail empty (gg don't do it)
under MMS put:
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password (this is the word "password")
MMSC: http://mmsc-ac.mms.o2.co.uk:10021/mmsc
MMS Proxy: 193.113.200.195:8080
Max MSG size:307200
Settings > General > Network/Mobile Data > Enable 3G <ON>
Settings > General > Network/Mobile Data > Cellular Data <ON>
Settings > Messages> MMS Messaging <ON>
You may also need to reboot your phone to implement these settings.

if your option is missing then you make have to restore your phone and restall 0S 6.1.2, is your phone running on 6.1.2?

Updating to ios 6.1.2 has brought the 'mobile data network' option back to my phone.

Not sure why it disappeared, strange!

Thanks anyways!
