Highlighted
2: Seeker

Hi All

 

 I've just got my Desire S (on a upgrade) and need to know what APN settings do I need to plow in (Vodafone Live! ?, WAP ? etc. etc.)  and what are they for a contract account with web included.

 

TIA

Hi arash2paris,

 

I'm afraid it's not possible to tether on a Pay As You Go SIM.

Hi arash2paris

 

I'm unsure as to what you're referring to when you say that you want 'free ports'. If you're referring to tethering packs to use your phone as a modem this can only be done on a Pay Monthly contract. I'd suggest taking a look at our SIM Only price plans for smartphones and if you'd like to discuss our price plans any further then get in touch with our fantastic @VodafoneUKdeals team.

 

Thanks

 

Simon
