Thanks for postiong. We don't support tethering because using many devices on one mobile service quickly uses up your allowance and can lead to out of plan charges. Therefore we want to make sure you're always connected on your mobile, and have the right plan for your mobile needs.
Awww, deal braker for me. Was tempted to the £20 pound plan! But unfortunately work internet isn't reliable and I quite often tether at work, so not suitable for me.
Same here 😞
Must be in the MVNO contract
Maybe once BT is approved to complete on EE then we'll see this becoming available.
Notice the word "support". It does not mean that it will not work, as that is normally down to the phone itself. Unless its actually blocked in some way, then it should work.
BT simply cannot provide support, as it may cause people to go over their allowance, and then blame BT for telling them how to do it.
It works with the existing Broadband Anywhere package. Until I know what the arrangements for existing customers are, its difficult to say.
My HTC Desire has a wireless hotspot function, which I have used on the odd occasion I can get a decent signal when away from home. I will try it again when its moved from the Vodaphone backbone, onto EE.
