    I'd love to hear about this as well!:D

    Using 3 UK. Planning to get MyWi or TetherMe but don't know if this would work. So far I have 3GUnrestrictor and working just fine downloading 50MB+ from the Appstore.

    They detecting the Browser User Agent string. e.g.:-
    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1) AppleWebKit/535.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/18.0.1025.168 Safari/535.19

    It's rather obvious that it's running on a PC and not a phone.

    They only method i know that works at the minute is go to on your phone and see what user agent information is returned. (This is what i see on my PC when i visit the site - Your User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:17.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0)

    Now go to cydia and download user agent faker if you want to tether a iPad or if you want to tether a laptop find the user agent faker for your browser (firefox is
    Then replace the user agent information from the browser/iPad with the details you got from your phone when you went to

    Once you have completed the steps above you should be able to tether from your phone

    If I need to tether, which is rare, I just activate it on my O2's not vastly expensive if you disable images etc. and is only an emergency thing anyway.
