Welcome to Vodafone Community
I'm considering joining Vodafone on the Vodafone X deal.
I was just wondering if I can use tethering as part of the data that comes with that?
I note that the TOS states 'The 20GB data allowance can be used to access the internet via the below Access Point Networks only: wap.vodafone.ie & live.vodafone.com. Tethering over the HS APN or any other use of the HS APN will incur OOB charges.'
However I have read of people being unable to change the APN to the live one , ,thereby getting charged.
Could you clarify if I can tether on my IPhone at no additional cost?
Solved! Go to Solution.
If you are connecting to the live.vodafone,com APN, your data usage will automatically be deducted from the data bundle included in your top up offer. However, if you use your handset to hotspot / tether, this would be seen as a different connection type which would cause your APN to automatically switch from live.vodafone.com to the hs.vodafone.ie access point. To avoid charges over the HS APN, I would recommend that you manually delete the HS and ISP APNS's from your device - this should force all data connections over the live.vodafone.com APN.
Apologies for the delay, I'm afraid iPhone users would not have the option to manually edit / delete their APN's. I'm really sorry about that.
