Personal Hotspot / Tethering

Is there any problem if I use my phone as a personal hotspot and use the data on my iPad?  I've searched on the O2 site and found different answers.  

 

At the moment I'm trying to decide whether to stay with O2 as there are much better deals on other networks (all with decent reception here) and they do support tethering/personal hotspot so I'm trying to decide what to do!

Re: Personal Hotspot / Tethering

You can tether on an O2 contract no problem.
The only limit is your data allowance.

Thanks!  When I searched I found one article that said it should only be done occasionally and I wanted to make sure!

No, not a problem at all on contracts but not allowed on PAYG.
