Hi. To setup your internet please update your operating system software to see if the Giffgaff APN settings install automatically.

If that doesn't work, connect to WiFi and download and install the official giffgaff APN app from the google play store if you have access to wifi. Simply click onto the link below.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.giffgaffmobile.controller

Or third parties apps;

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.qmusa.giffgaffapp

Or

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.paulshirley.android.giffgaffsetapn

Or you can input the ANDROID settings manually

- Step by Step Guide:

Go to - Settings (More) - Wireless & Networks
Mobile Networks - Access Point Names -
Tap the MENU key - select 'New APN'

Type in this info:

Username: "giffgaff"
APN: "giffgaff.com"
password: [Leave blank]
Proxy: [Leave blank]

Tap the Menu key then press 'Save'.
Click the circle next to it to see a green light.
Your internet should now be sorted.
