    Hi,

    Various iOS4 questions to get around paying carriers a fortune in tethering costs...

    1. Am I correct in thinking that legal tethering requires the carrier (O2 UK in my case, but AT&T appear to be doing the same thing) to send a new carrier settings file to your phone?

    2. If I then cancel my tethering subscription after 1 month, are the carriers able to FORCE you to use the previous (non-tethering) carrier settings?

    3. Can I make a backup of those tethering settings to re-add them to the phone if O2 manage to remove them?

    4. O2 didn't seem to know that I was tethering on my previous iPhone, so can they then tell if I'm tethering after I've cancelled my tethering sub?

    Thanks guys,

    DS

    That's some good thinking! I was thinking the same.
    It's worth a try anyway. I'm not sure how much the tethering tarrifs are for the new iphone. I'm going to enquire when i upgrade in the next few days.
