Re: Sat Nav Tethering 02 Classic

That’s why we asked @Marjo for clarification and o2 confirmed it was available.

Re: Sat Nav Tethering 02 Classic

Got the SIM I ordered myself within 2 days. Done the SIM swap yesterday which worked fine.

BUT... Still the same with the hotspot, will connect but no internet access.

@Marjo could you check that it should work with Android phones, and not just iPhones on PAYG please?

Re: Sat Nav Tethering 02 Classic

Confirmed in this thread from January if you read through from here https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/Pay-As-You-Go/Hotspot-issue/m-p/1106872#M7481 but, wethink it may be firmware dependant on phone.
Is yours a newish phone on the latest firmware?

It's a Moto G3 (as in that link!), bought mine in Jan 2016 so a couple of years old, but been having this issue for 6 months now.  I'm not sure if it's on the latest firmware,  it should auto update though.

 

I dont understand why it would work with a talkmobile SIM if it's the phone at fault though?

Re: Sat Nav Tethering 02 Classic

The o2 sim is the key to it working or not for sure but it seems that it only works on android with the newest phones for some reason.
Really to prove it you need your sim in different phones to find to point it starts to work.
