Thread: Tethering in UK?
03-19-2012, 01:26 PM #1Tethering in UK?
This may sound simple,and it may have an obvious answer however I need some clarification.
Why is there a big hype regarding the tethering apps via cydia/jailbreaking when you can actually "turn on" personal hotspot directly from the iPhone and use your iPhone's data plan allowance to tether with no extra charge.
Why is there even an app via cydia/jailbreak in the first place?
I'm on the O2 UK network.
Answers will be great??

Not everyone has this option as it depends on your carrier and data plan. I'm on O2 uk and I don't have this option (it's there after restore, but as soon as I connect to data it disappears), which I assume as I'm not on an iPhone tariff. I kept my old plan which includes unlimited data as the new ones only give up to 1gb which I normally exceed. Hence a tethering app is needed.
On another note, anyone any idea if I can edit a .plist file to enable this option from settings?
