I have a pay monthly tablet with a very modest 500mb data quota and a pay monthly phone with a more generous 30GB quota - is there a way to share my phone quopta between the two devices?

 

Obviously tethering is an option but is there an account-based way of doing it?

@ChrisH 

You need to be on sharer plans.

That sounds like just the thing!

I need to wait to the 29th to change my tariff but that sounds perfect!

"

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."

 

I don't see this - my tablet has a 500mb tariff but it's not clear whether that's valid or not? My phone which I want as the lead device has a 30gb tariff
