I have just arrived in the UK and purchased a Giff Gaff Goody bag. I understand that for me to text internationally I will need extra credit, but I'm not receiving international texts. Do I need to have credit for that too?

No you do not need credit to recieve texts from abroad. Have you installed your gg settings?

I have installed the settings that were texted to me, and I have also done the manual installation as described on this site. Neither seem to work. Local texts work but I can't receive international texts.

That's very odd. I assume they are texting you back adding the area code In front of your mobile number. You should always reboot after you install the settings.

If I was you I would reboot and double check what area code they are using! Sorry to hear your having this problem

I have asked them to double check the number for correct area codes etc.. Maybe I'm making a mountain out of a mole hill here!
