Yup, although tethering is a breach of the Ts & Cs and they'll threaten to place bars on your account if you go over 250MB in any month. 250MB is generally a hard limit to reach with a mobile, but you'll get through it in no time connected to a laptop!
Where did you get these limits? o2 staff have posted on here many times to state no such cap exists on contract.

I emailed mycare about their FUP several times, and each time got roughly the same answer...
"If you use the Unlimited Web Bolt On, you can download the data up to 250MB per month, this means that if you download more than 250MB per month then you'll be charged."

MyCare staff are obviously mistaken as many people here have reported using a lot more than 250MB and this never results in any charges or other problems. I myself use an average of 300MB per month, without tethering. It's not hard at all to achieve with modern mobile phones.

That's exactly what I told O2 Retentions last night! But no, they said, 250MB is your limit, "that's how it is with O2" I was told - so I've signed up to a 12 month Vodafone contract for now anyway, in protest.
If only we could trust what customer care agents say... Seems like not all of them know entirely what they're talking about and would rather BS than go and check for sure!!

Are you sure O2 staff post on here? I'd take any O2 "presence" in these forums with a pinch of salt.
Yes there are a few with very helpful advice and their input is much appreciated. We are sometimes privy to info before it appears on the site. With some of the rubbish that's spouted on here at times, it must be very difficult to give an unbiased viewpoint but they are always accurate with their comments and advice. You all know who you are so thank you.
