I  recently bought an HTC Wildfire and needed to set up the internet connection for giffgaf.

Whilst there are many entries here here in the community forum, I never quite found the setting to work for me.

So if this helps the an owner of a wildfire that's great.


Begin by going to, Settings > Wireless & networkes > Mobile networks > Access Point Names >


APNs = new

Name = 02 Pay and Go


Proxy =

Port = 8080

Username = giffgaff

Password = password

Server = <Not set>

MMSC = htp://

MMS port = 8080

MMS protocol = Wap 2.0

MNC = 10

Authentication type = None

APN type = *


The above is how its listed and filled in on my HTC wildfire, and it works for me.

I hope this helps.

If I have please don't forget to give kudos.Smiley Very Happy

Does MMS work with these settings?

As you said, there are a lot of versions on the forum and some seem to report problems if you don't enter MMS settings as a seperate etry in some phones

Password: password

Server: <Not set>


MMS Proxy:

I hope this helps. And this should work for ALL Android phones.

Perhaps I should have said the settings I originally posted work for me.

Should? Perhaps.


In fact the single APN does not work on all Android phones, that's why the guides (and app) switched back to dual APN's. Which DO work on all Android phones so far.
