With the Release of 3.0 of the Iphone OS one of the new features across the range is Internet Tethering. The ability to user your 3G connection on your phone as a modem is a function many have been after in the mobile computing world.
In order to enable this feature O2 would have you beleive that yo need to order their Tethering Bolt-On Package. As shown Below
Internet Tethering Bolt Ons for Pay Monthly
|Bolt On||Cost||Wi-Fi||You need to have it for at least:||How much it costs if you go over your bundle on O2|
|3GB||£14.68 a month||Unlimited in 5,000 hotspots via The Cloud||30 days||19.6p a MB|
|10GB||£29.36 a month||Unlimited in 5,000 hotspots via The Cloud||30 days||19.6p a MB|
If you choose the 3GB Bolt On and need more data one month, you will be able to upgrade to the 10GB Bolt On or speak to Customer Services to discuss other options.
However if your lke me and dont really want to pay an additional £15 amonth for a feature that the majority of other operators give your for free. I have made avalible the mobile config that will allow you to use this feature, for free 🙂 ( Yes a bit Naughty I Know)
