How do I enable tethering on the iPhone?

Every time I go into General > Network > Personal Hotspot it takes me to the o2 website to buy a tethering bolt-on?

You can't tether using your iPhone with a goodybag, Giffgaff won't allow it. You need a gigabag, in which case your calls and texts will come from credit and won't be included. You can't have a gigabag and goodybag at the same time.

You would need to jailbreak to use that feature on giffgaff.

You can't teather on Giffgaff. It's against the polices and GG isn't an official apple carrier so it isn't possible anyway without jailbreaking anyway on an iphone

No, you may only tether on a gigabag or PAYG not any goodybag that includes Internet.

That would be abusing the policy. You'd be risking a data bar due to the massive amount of data you'd be using on the network
