Default Having issues with T-Mobile UK tethering on Full Monty?

I have just started a T-Mobile contract in the UK on the Full Monty plan that gives unlimited data and includes tethering.

The handset used is unbranded and unlocked but I couldnt tether with it for some reason, either via wifi hotspot or USB Tether. The internet on the handset worked fine.

I couldnt call 150 customer service as that dept shut at 10pm so had a play with the apn's.

The three APN's set up as default are all locked and uneditable so my plan was to edit the broadband one in someway.

So, I copied all the settings, set up the APN's as another network, deleted them and added the three default APN's manually.

Once I did this, tethering started to work, with no actual change to any of the settings.

Just a heads up if anyone else comes across this and a fix that worked for me.

Steve :-)

I'm on T-Mobile UK full Monty and didn't have this problem. I was able to tether straight away..strange. Good work round though for anyone with problems

I made a mistake in my original post.

Seems that what was happening is that I was using the T-mobile Orange signal and not been able to tether. After messing with the APN's the phone went back to T-Mobile and so started to work. Nothing to do with the messing with the APN's

But, what does seem to work, is to re-create the APN's as they were, but on the first entry, change APN type from 'default,hipri' to 'default,hipri,dun'

That works on T-Mobile and when roaming onto Orange it seems
