You could try using the settings for the S8500 Wave - there's a thread about it here:

 

http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Help-Ask-the-community-got-stuck/Internet-Settings-for-Samsung-Wave...

 

where it is suggested to delete your other connection settings first and then text SETTINGS to 2020 (may well not work given what you've already said but couldn't hurt to delete the others and try again).

 

There is another solution here which takes a little more effort:

 

http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Help-Ask-the-community-got-stuck/Internet-settings-for-Samsung-Wave...

 

And the standard APN settings for giffgaff are here if you need to input them all manually:

Did one of the above suggestions work for you?  Would be useful if you could let us know which one so that we can use this for future reference with other users of the S7230 Smiley Happy

Have you tried inputting the giffgaff settings as a new APN / Connection / WAP Settings (depending on the terminology used by your phone it could be called any of these or perhaps something slightly different!) ?

 

It is a longer process to manually set them up like this, but might be the only way.

Does it not allow you to click on it in your list of settings?  I've no experience with that phone, but I'm guessing it works similarly to the other Wave branded phone.  Is this:

essentially what you did?

 

(EDIT: Obviously with the giffgaff settings, not O2...)
