Check Internet settings:

You'll need to add some settings (called an APN) manually for your phone to access the internet and send/receive MMS messages on giffgaff. Here's details of how to do that for most phones -

Android - http://goo.gl/iEsCXZ
iPhone - http://goo.gl/DIfHbx
Blackberry - http://goo.gl/Nnr5KX
Nokia Lumia - http://goo.gl/yInbYG
Windows - http://goo.gl/l5GSJS
Other phones - http://goo.gl/t3UbYT

Hope this helps,

Have a good day

Hi there and thanks for visiting the community.

Please try texting the word "settings" to 2020 this currently works for some devices,but not all unfortunately.
If texting the word "settings" to 2020 doesn't work for you,you may have to manually enter your giffgaff "settings"

If you would like to take a look at a fantastic guide to setting up your device for both MMS and Internet Data,please click onto the link below,cheers.

Depending on what phone you have there are 3 ways to do this. 1 the easy way do what the others have said and text settings blar, blar. 2 slightly inconvenient but it might work is to find the giff gaff APN app, there is also another app relating to giff gaff. Or 3 this is will test your patience to the limit and get your fingers at the ready, it is to manually type everything in as most likely mentioned above. thank you and good luck.
