I am totally confused, i have tried to follow the guide, but it appears that some of the setting dont appear in my settings, i have a samsung galaxy note running android 4.0.5. I keep getting notifications from giffgaff saying that this and that is now working but when i switch off my wifi connection to try to use the 3g network it says no connection???? I really am dumb when it comes to stuff like this, companies like giffgaff do not warn you that all this needs to be done before you purchase there goodybags. Can any body help in the simplist way possible. Thanks.

I have the Samsung Galaxy Note. At first after unlocking the phone from the Tmobile network the 3G was not working and could not send or recieve email.

I downloaded the APN app from the Google app store. It is free. Using my home wireless connection and installed it.

Then I turned my phone off.

When I turned my phone on again all was working properly.


Good job GiffGaff!
