Richard,

Interesting. I'll borrow a pair of eyes, and get them to take a look. I have
a similar deal to yourself, so it should work.



Best regards,
 
David.

HI David, I'm on a sim only deal which includes 500MB of data.  
 
Went to the O2 shop, and they were able to find the setting which I am
pretty sure VO didn't read.  Anyway, they told me that if you're just using
your allowance there's no prob, and it's working fine for me.  I only need
it for e-mails when away from wifi networks.  Thanks,


Richard

Richard,

It looks like we've hit the same problem. You have to get it enabled through
O2. Depending on the contract you have it appears that there might be extra
cost involved in doing this.
I'm not likely to use it very much, but am in a situation in the next couple
of weeks where use of it is a priority.


Best regards,
 
David.

Hi Muzz and all, I'd like to try tethering and use my O2 contract.  I've
fallen at the first hurdle though, as I can't find the personal hotspot item
in settings.  Where exactly is it please?

Dongles are sort of ok!
Vodafone is just workable with jaws & NVDA !
3 is better & cheaper! 
However I was wondering if you've thought about tethering instead as an
alternative to buying yet another piece of kit with questionable
accessibility ?
It is far more simple to use, more accessible & if you know how much data
you want from your dongle, you can just buy an add on from your existing
carrier & save the hassle of even more admin & legal paperwork from yet
another entity? 
Besides, tethering might even turn out cheaper in the long run if you get a
sensible data add on :) 

I've written out instructions for tethering using an iPhone & iPad  on my
blog http://www.fram3.co.uk/blog.html

Please let me know if i could be of more assistance !
