I'm a little confused. I'm considering getting a 3 PAYG sim for my phone and using my phone as a local hotspot so my tablet and laptop can access the data. I have just spoken to a 3 store person and they say that the sim does not allow the phone be a hot-spot abroad. Has anyone found this to be the case? Is the only way I can get data to my tablet and laptop to use a mifi device? I did find a phrase on one of the 3 web pages "Tethering isn't included on Pay As You Go", so assume that means hot-spots? (sorry not a techno geek!).
