Hi has anyone managed to get Multimedia messaging working on the HTC 8X on the GiffGaff network? or does anyone have the settings off an O2 phone to point me in the right direcrtion as they must be similar as GiffGaff piggy backs off O2. Thanks in advance

It may be that MMS doesn't work with the HTC 8X on GiffGaff/O2
I have just returned my HTC 8X because it wouldn't download any apps (under 20Mb) or update any apps (under 20Mb) on giffgaff, email/internet worked ok (was a bit flakey) but I kept on getting a service not available message.
Wifi worked fine for updates but it seemed pretty pointless to have a great phone and unlimited data without being able to download any new small apps.

Strange fault that, my internet works floorless, often getting H+ displayed and good speed to boot, just cant get MMS to work as im not sure of what the correct settings should be and no one appears to be able to tell me either
Sent from my Windows Phone 8X by HTC using Board Express

i had this problem also - the solution is to leave the proxy server and proxy port settings blank. when i put in the numbers i found online, i could only browse - no 'download' services worked, including marketplace, zune pass, tellme etc.
after wiping those, everything worked fine...you should ask them for your 8X back!

I got an unlocked model from 3, as soon as I stuck a o2 micro sim in, HTC's Connection setup app kicked in and asked me which o2 settings I wanted and after a restart I was away. Looking at the Connection Setup GiffGaff settings are there aswell. So try that.
I think H+ is usually for uploading and downloading, otherwise it will stay on H.

I used the connection app on the phone and it didn't work, I also set up an APN by hand with blank proxy etc and that didn't work either. I had one day left before the 14 days were up so I decided on a return, it might be a problem with O2 network and the 8X it may be a set up problem with the htc connect app it may just be a user problem. But a phone you can't use to download apps etc, and I couldn't play wordament apart from on wifi doesn't work for me.

You can have O2 push the connection settings to your phone from the MyO2 site, just go to "my phone" when you've logged in and check it's detected the 8X.
Then there's an option on the page to send the connection settings. Minute or so later you'll have a prompt on your screen saying updated settings have been recieved etc and prompts you to reboot.
I can't say this will sort your MMS settings as id already provided my phone the settings in my last post by this point, but it may resolve people with data issues like pieman had?

if you do find a way to put them in manual, these codes should work:
Access Point Name - giffgaff.com
Username - giffgaff
Password - password
Proxy address - 18.104.22.168
Proxy port - 8080
MMSC - http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
