Can I use an O2 SIM in my phablet to make and receive calls and texts? Some companies explicitly disallow it, whereas others permit it. It seems to be random.
Secondly, can I tether with my O2 SIM? Again some companies allow it and some don't, matter of luck.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for the replies.
I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5" LTE.
I was on Three, for many years, until I got this tablet and realised that Three explicitly disallow their SIMs to be used in tablets,
I then went to GiffGaff, which is based on O2, and for first time enjoyed 4G, really fast, really nice. I could use the SIM in my tablet, and I could tether as much as I liked (within my allowances of course).
But then I travel to Europe by car, and Giffgaff have nothing to make roaming in Europe any cheaper, no addons, no deals, nothing. That was very disappointing.
I am in search of another provider that will allow me to use my tablet, allow me to tether, and have addons or other means to make roaming in Europe cheaper, mainly using data.
I am now testing iD Mobile who have a plan for £15 that allows you to use your allowances in Europe and in other countries. It is a bit expensive and it is a 12 month contract, and I hate 12 month contracts. But I think it is the best there is in the UK right now. Even their "normal" plans are unbeatable: full 4G, 500mins, 3GB for £10 a month, tablets and tethering fully allowed.
