    Hi all,

    Ok here's the question - I have a laptop and my iphone 4 with me. My iphone 4 is picking up the available wifi connection here, but the laptop won't pick it up.

    Can I use mywi, to tether the available wifi connection from the iphone to my laptop, without being charged? I'm not using any of o2s data here I don't think, i've even just put it into airplane mode, so there's no phone signal, so surely I wouldn't get charged by O2 for doing this, effectively just sharing an internet connection?

    Yeah, you should be good. The only thing is, I don't think you can have airplane mode on and use mywi. But if you're worried about it then you can just turn cellular data off and that should do it.

    It's ok, it seems to be working fine with airplane mode on. I even took the simcard out and its working fine!

    Btw you wouldn't necessarily be "charged" for using MyWi...
