Just a quick heads up: I can confirm that the procedure for the APN settings in Android 4.2 are identical to those in Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 and Jelly Bean 4.1, so you should have no problems setting up your Nexus 7, Nexus 4 or any other device you may have on Android 4.2 in the future.


The guide for the settings for the above versions is available here:

For a google nexus 4 running Android 4.2 (Jelly bean)  you need to set up two new APN's one for internet and one for MMS


Go to Settings Choose More Choose Mobile network settings



Choose Access Point Names.


Press the Menu button on your phone and choose New APN


For your internet connection



Tap Name and type giffgaff-gprs then tap OK

Tap APN and type then tap OK

Tap Username and type giffgaff

Tap Password and type password

Tap MMSC and type then tap OK

Tap MMS proxy and type then tap OK

Tap MMS port and type 8080 then tap OK

You should see

MCC 234

MNC 10 if not then enter them manually by tapping, entering and OKing


Now press the Menu button on your phone again, and choose Save  

Tap the little circle to the right of the profile named giffgaff-gprs on the list. It should turn blue


Now for MMS you need another APN

so go back through setting up a New APN as above then enter MMS Settings opening typing and OKing each

Name type: giffgaff - MMS

APN - Access Point Name type:


Password: password


MMS proxy:

MMS port: 8080

MCC: 234

MNC: 10

APN type: mms


go to your menu and save


To be sure these are set you can go back to the main settings menu and turn airplane mode on and off again.


You should now have two new APNs - Your phone is now set up for giffgaff's internet and MMS settings – have fun Smiley Very Happyand if this works give this advice a Kudos!

On any Android phone or tablet or phablet all you need to change is Name-giffgaff. username-giffgaff. Password-password and this works on all of them. Even worked on my lenovo and that's running the latest Android! There is no need to change all the other things like proxy settings and all the numbers, trust me!
