  1. Dear All, Some help and advice needed. My wife wants to use her laptop out and about to connect to the internet. There are lots of "dongle" contracts out there but the data cap is usually 1GB/mth - possibly as much as 3GB/mth. There are several phone contracts out there that offer unlimited (or "all you can eat") data with phones. The iPhone (which she has) can act as a WiFi Modem using Tethering - but virtually every smartphone conract which has data specifically forbids tethering. I know that technically if your phone is capable of tethering (WiFi hotspot on some devices) there's little the companies can do - but what they can do is throtte your data throughput or charge you an extra fee (because you are going acainst the T&C's of usage) In an EE store on Saturday, a salesman said that (a) yes, tethering wasn't allowed, (b) they couldn't stop you from thehering and © they wouldn't do anything if you did, however, I walked away from that shop because I don't want to fall foul of any T&C's Three (or is it "3") seem to be the only network that specifically allow tethering on their One Plan. So, my question is, are there any other networks that offer tethering (together with a talk allowance of at least 500-1000 x network minutes per month) - ideally with an iPhone 4/4S/5 because her 3GS will only tether via USB (and that's a pain tbh). Thanks in advance, Art
