Hi all, 

 

   Just to let you know, I've just updated my iPhone 4s to IOS 6.

 

After itunes has updated your iPhone, it will reset your mobile data settings, so you will need to re install them manually.

 

The " Network  " option has been replaced with " Mobile Data "

 

 

 

 

Check your settings against these ...???

 

There are three iPhones in my family that use these settings successfully. (3Gs, 4, 4s) Running IOS 5.1.1 IOS 6

 

You need to install these manually...

 

 

 

Go to " Settings " ....

          " General " ....

          " Mobile Data " ....

Then  " Mobile Data Network "

 

Mobile Data

 

APN ... giffgaff.com

Username ... giffgaff

Password ... [leave blank]

Visual Voicemail (just leave as is, giffgaff do not support visual voicemail)

 

MMS

 

APN ... giffgaff.com

Username ... giffgaff

Password ... [leave blank]

MMSC http://mmsc-ac.mms.o2.co.uk:10021/mmsc

MMS Proxy 193.113.200.195:8080

Max message size 2097152

MMS UA Prof URL (just leave blank)

Do NOT press the " Reset Settings " button when you’ve done this.

 

Once the settings are in, turn your iphone off ( via the red slider ) till the screen is completely blank. Then reboot. If you do not see the apple logo, the settings will not stick.

 

Then, press “ Settings “…“ Messages “ and ensure that " MMS Messaging " button is set to ON.

 

In " settings " " messages " turn imessages on.

 

Please also ensure that the " Enable 3G " button and the " Mobile Data " button are set to ON. (Press Settings, then General, then Mobile Data).

 

Then " Settings " ... " Phone " .... And check " My Number " is correct

 

Go to " Settings " ... " Carrier " and change to O2-UK.

 

 

 

Also note that Picture messages cost 16p and are not included in any goodybags.

 

 

Hope this helps.  ...   :smileyhappy:

So not many improvements... I don't know if I will try it in my iPhone 4 until it will be well checked...

If I helped, you can give me KUDOS or click in accept it as solution. Thanks.

This isn't a fix for iOS 6 - there isn't that menu option. It's only : GENERAL/CELLULAR//CELLULAR DATA ON,OFF TOGGLE

You cannot edit the settings like in iOS 5.1 so currently iPhones updated to 6 aren't giffgaff'd and there's no way to do it. So no nano sim available for months and software upgraders can't use giffgaff either.  Cheers GG and goodbye !
