[International] 3 UK Tether Block Help Please!

Last Updated:

  1. Okay so here's the deal.

    I have the Samsung Galaxy S3 and my network 3 (im from the uk) have blocked any tethering and want you to pay for it which is rediculous as i payed for the phone and its a feature in the phone so imo i think it should be free because its a feature that the phone poseses.

    Is there any way i can bypass this? Not only the chrome plugin thing that makes your browser into a mobile browser...i mainly want to use it to play World of Warcraft on and i know its possible because i used to do it when i had my iphone.

    Here's some information about my phone:

    No Custom Rom
    No Custom Kernel

    Thanks in advance

    I'm afraid you may be a little premature in thanking people in advance for helping you with this one. Unfortunately forum policy doesn't allow us to help you circumvent your contractual terms and conditions even if you believe it should be free to tether. If they've blocked it, they've probably got legal backing to do so, i.e. it is in the terms and conditions of the service they provide.

    Whether you are correct and it should be free is another issue...

    What plan are you on? I'm in the One Plan which has tethering, and as funky has said he can use it on his PAYG plan, but I do know that certain plans you have to pay 5 quid extra for tethering. There's no way to circumvent this really, and even if you managed to 3 could suspend your SIM for breaching the terms of your plan

    Edit: wrong again

    Older plans retain tethering but newer plans with exception to the one plan, block it. New PAYG sims also block tethering

    Its pretty easy to circumvent and there's no way they can tell that you have done so either. I can't tell you how though - just keep googling

    Just using the logic you used above, using the phone to call someone is a feature of the phone, so why do you have to pay for service?

    What a donut remark, you do pay for the service as 'unlimited data with no fair use policy' as advertised. It's like saying your friends can't use your phone to make a call more like. "Well they should have their own contract"...

    I'm about to downgrade from the one plan to an unlimited internet one, going to use VPN or the different APN and hopefully they won't be able to tell anywho.
