The HTC Desire is a phone in itself though? Why not use giffgaff in that? Unless it's locked, I don't know as it's tethering but still mobile use.

Is your HTC Desire not your cell fone then?

sorry no it cant as tethering is not allowed on giffgaff. it can only be used in the phone that the sim is contained in. if you do get caught from giffgaff doing this, then you run the risk of getting a data bar on your sim, which permanantly blocks internet from your sim

... and, as previously mentioned, you'll be in breach of the T&C and risk being TOSsed.
