It's a 1 yr contract, unless you can't get a contract?

2000 min 5000 text and unlimited data + tethering allowed!

As I said above: "Please do not reply to this thread to say "solution: get the one plan"
I have my reasons. This post wasn't helpful.

DONATE TO ME
Most, if not all UK telecom giants won't offer tethering on PAYG, for whatever reason they don't let us know. - There used to be a few apps around that can get around the tethering but when I tried I got the msg about 30minute disconnect etc. -- While you may have your reasons for not going contract, it would seem the One Plan is the only option that you can actually use for it.
// Nexus 5 (D821) // Liquid // UBER //
// Note 3 (SM-N9005) // AOSP ROM of variety // Lean or temasek's Kernel // - Dumped. No more Samsung

There are hacks that work. TetherMe is a classic example but TetherMe is only available on iOS.
My reason for posting this thread were to find out if there was something like TetherMe for Android.
But yes, in terms of native tethering and hacks that don't work properly, yes, tethering is blocked.

Are you using a 3 branded rom or plain btu? Just wondering if that makes a difference

It will be a factory unlocked device, not a 3 branded device.
Not sure if that makes a difference, it doesn't usually though.

No, it's not against the law. But it is against the carrier's TOS.
