I'm a bit miffed to say the least!
The girlfirend has just renewed her contract with Vodafone and got a Desire HD. She is allowed to tether her phone as an internet modem however I notice that with my iPhone I have to pay!
We pay the same amount per month so why am I not allowed to tether? It seems like an iPhone discrimination to me and I'm not at all happy about it.
Can vodafone please explain this? I see no reason why this should differ between us.

from what i can see there are twi different options for the tethering
standard packs for all phones :-
iphone tethering :-
if anything the iphone ones seem to be better value
either way if your going to use your phoen as a modem, you'll be paying for the extra data your using.

The iPhone is developed to use a different APN for tethering connections. When you pay for tethering you are purchasing an allowance separate to your standard mobile internet allowance.
With any handset, if you choose to tether then there is a high probability you'll use more than your standard allowance, which is why the Via The Phone packs that shinwar mentions were introduced.
As soon as you start making any serious use of the tethering, you'll find that the value on the iPhone option really comes into play, and you also have a definitive split demarking what you have used from each allowance, making it easier to manage.
