I have seen a few threads either advising or asking how to setup an iPad with giffgaff settings, so I thought a guide with some retina display captured screenshots might come in handy...
Go to Settings and select Mobile Data / Cellular Data
Make Sure Mobile Data/Cellular Data is set to ON
Click APN Settings and enter APN as giffgaff.com , Username as giffgaff and password as password
Either power the device off and on again or switch to airplane mode and back to ensure the data connection is restarted
Don't bother using the View Account option, it is only designed to work with official iPad tarriffs, and will incorrectly advise you to contact o2 to register your device. You don't need to do that, just make sure the APN settings are correct as per the screenshots above
Inspired by wman2's guide http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-Top-Tips/giffgaffer-s-guide-to-iPad/m-p/3533455
Im sure there are many tips available other then this lol
Thanks, hence my first line

I just wanted to show off the screenshots, and they say a picture is worth a thousand words.....
very useful post and yeah pictures do paint a thousand words... bonusball would know lol
bonusball, the van gogh of the giffgaff community , but some of his picture choices are so warped to make me think he is nearer to Salvadore Dali
