On my 4s I have a "personal hotspot" option. It's that the same as tethering? I've not tried it yet
I'm on my iPad, tethering as I type this.
With my plan, tethering/personal hotspot doesn't cost any more. It just counts towards your data allowance.
I've got "The Works" which is 1GB a month. (£10.) Just about what I use.
That option is greyed out and not selectable on my 4S, but that may be be ause I'm on wifi when I'm home....I don't think they are exactly the same thing, but I'm not well up on hacking and tethering stuff...It's something I'd like to have as an option if away from wifi, and carrying my iPad, or MBA around.
In the US, Verizon offer it as an option on a PAYG basis....Just. Can't get the pathetic O2 customer services dept. to give me an answer.
Yeah. 2 year contract

It's included in all O2 iPhone contracts with a data limit. Those like me still on unlimited do not have the option and must purchase a separate bolt on data allowance.
Basically if you have a newer contract with a 500mb+ cap it'll just eat into that when you tether (personal hotspot)
I've got the " All Rounder " for iPhone....It's my phone, purchased from Apple. So I can tether and just use my normal data allowance? I'd like to have it confirmed from somewhere definitely!....
Give O2 a call. Internet tethering is included on the all rounder data bolt on! I had the same problem, I needed up having to carry out a clean install, which was slightly annoying.
Well, if it's okay for you to do it it should be okay for me....Thing is, they don't like people who buy phones from Apple...They can't screw as much money out of me...I might try it and get a whopping extra bill just for doing it....I guess I'll try phoning them again...That "ask lucy" thing is a piece of C*** and the CS staff are no better! Thing is, the service and coverage are excellent..
