    So tonight I decided to try out the tethering option on 4.3.

    Conncted to my computer but then I try to go onto a webpage and it takes me to a t-mobile holding page asking me to purchase a days worth of tethering when I already pay for internet in my contract.

    Is there anyway to get around this so they dont know I am using my computer?

    Jailbreak > MyWi

    It'll be really slow on TMO anyway since there is no 3G.

    Look at his location. The silly T-Mobile have weird bands only exists in the US: they operate on the normal ones here with full 3G coverage.

    Of course there's 3G on T-Mobile. Look where they live. :)

    Not doing the the jailbreak till untethered comes out.

    THought there might be something on my computer I could use.

    Would using USB cable instead work? This used to work ok?

    Would mywi work anyway?>

    Tmobile internet tethering wifi hotspot

    TMobile UK. September 2011

    I am on a £25 a month web'n'talk iphone contract with tmobile. I turned on my "Personal Hotspot" and connected by WIFI on my mac, It directed me to the Payment page. I phoned Tmobile and asked do I have to get an add on (booster). The Operator said NO. She did something at her end and Updated my mobile. I restarted the phone and now I can connect by WIFI through Iphone.

    The Cost = £0 extra

    I tried this last 3 months ago and I couldn’t do it FREE. So obviously they have sorted something out. But you have to make the call (150 from your tmobile phone)...also here
