Tethering on a sim only plan
I’m coming to the end of my current contract with tmob and don’tPosted 5 years ago
wantneed a new phone to replace my sensation. However I’ve just bought a nexus 7 tablet and so want a plan with plenty of data that will allow me to tether.
Any recommendations? Giffgaff say no tethering otherwise I would go with them straightaway.
Would rather avoid orange/tmob as have had awful experiences with their customer services.
you can tether on giffgaff. think its their £10 goodybag, which gives 1Gb data usage and allows it. £12 goodybag allows unlimited data but no tethering.
altho whether youd get the usage you want from tethering on a 1Gb cap is another matter. and may be why theyve done that 🙂Posted 5 years agojefflSubscriber
Yes but the only way they could realistically tell is via your browser header. Or possibly if you’re using some app which uses a random port and their is no phone equivalent. Your phone is running android and so is your tablet. So to all intents and purposes they’re identical.
Only other thing is if your phone identifies itself as having tethering enabled. As Android is open source I’m sure a quick Google will tell you.Posted 5 years agoampthillSubscriber
Won’t some browsers report the screen resolution, I’m thinky Opera. Also surely the phone would it report it was being used as a hot spot.
In the long run I would thought that the phone and tablet being distinct isn’t sustainable. Role on the the cheap version of a galaxy tab phone

I’m on 3 as sim only. The 12 quid unlimited data 1 month rolling contract and I have to pay a fiver a month for a tethering bolt on. I’m not sure but I suspect that tethering to a nexus that it would send the resolution, otherwise how would css media queries work? Whether or not they bother to detect that I don’t know.Posted 5 years ago
