The reason why I am posting this is to spread it throughout the top tips and possibly get it under the "Help" section so that it's more widely available, I believe that this knowledge should be spread so that it helps people with Nokia C5's to set up their phone, I do not take any credit at all for this.

@jonmc95 thx for bringing that across. Very helpful and well written, however I've struck at the point where after filling everything as above I still couldn't sent any MMS, so here is solution (as continued):

 

38. Go to Messaging menu
39. Press Options
40. Scroll to Settings press OK
41. Scroll to Multimedia Message press OK
42. Scroll to Access Point in use press OK
43. Change to giffgaff MMS press OK
44. Press the End call key to return to the standby screen

Thanks for the instructions.  I had followed them and still couldn't receive picture messages until i stumbled upon the settings in Messaging.  Press Option, scroll down to Settings, then open Multimedia msg.  Scroll down to Access point in use and select "giffgaff MMS".  Also, make sure Multimedia retrieval is "Always automatic".
