Does GiffGaff allow iPhone hotspot tethering?

I want to use the mobile hotspot feature on the iPhone. Not sure if GiffGaff allows this.

Not apparently you can't even use it (doesn't work) but it would have to be with a gigabag only if it did.

There is another post confirming the fact that this isn't normally supported here http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Help-Ask-the-community-got-stuck/Personal-hotspot-in-iPhone-4/m-p/3...

teethering is not allowed on GG unfortunately. - when using a goodybag.
you could do it if your phone was jailbroken only using a gigbag or PAYG

@puhala .. if you have an iphone that has undergone "Jailbreak", then with a GIGABAG, or PAYG then yes you can tether.

However...if you have a GOODYBAG then tethering is not allowed..

 Nothing wrong with my advice, i never said teether via a goodybag which is were it is not allowed. i also forgot to put on about the gigabag and PAYG rates. which i have said also in another post.
