Hi you'll need the giffgaff APN settings installed on to your phone before You can use the Internet
 
if your phone is an android you maybe able to use an app from the play store to install the giffgaff APN settings ,seė the link below
 
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.paulshirley.android.giffgaffsetapn
 
Or you could install an android giffgaff app
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.qmusa.giffgaffapp&hl=en_GB
 
here's the offical giffgaff app 
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.giffgaffmobile.controller
 
If that doesn't work on your phone then
you could loôk to see the giffgaff internet settings (APN) for most phone's here and add them manually
