Can someone explain to me how I can check if my iPhone is set up for data sharing with my iPad, both on monthly contracts. As I have twice contacted o2 (once by phone and once by chat) to set this up, both times they have said it has been set up, but if I go to "data sharing" on "my o2" then both devices are showing as able to share data, but I can't select a lead device.
This is the official instruction from O2 but it assumes you can set the lead device yourself.....
Before you are able to share a data allowance across your devices, we'll need to activate sharing. If this wasn't done in store when you bought your device or sim, you can activate it in My O2.
Once logged in you'll see a list of your Pay Monthly account(s), with a link to set up your shared data. Click this and the lead device will be shown its data allowance followed by a list of phones and tablets that you can share the allowance with.
Tick the boxes for devices you wish to share with and – if you want – change the names so you can easily spot which device is which. Then click the 'Start sharing data' button and you're done.
You'll see a message confirming that we're processing the request – it normally takes around 10-15 minutes to activate, but sometimes could take up to 24 hours.
