Hello giffgaff, did you miss me?
Sorry, I should probably explain for the benefit of anyone who wasn't here seven years ago. I joined giffgaff when it was still a tiny thing, and spent a couple of years as a dedicated giffgaffer. However circumstances changed and I got a killer cashback deal on a contract phone, then moved onto other PAYG suppliers (most recently, one named after a number ...)
Anyway, I've recently bought a second-hand Huawei mifi-thing that's locked to O2 and remembered that I still have this giffgaff account alive with a positive credit balance. And so I'm back here like a bad rash with a question that only a noob (or someone who's been under a rock for five years) would ever ask.
Back in the day there were strict limits on tethering or using data modems if you had a goodybag, and you could only tether on classic PAYG or one of the dedicated data-only gigabags. Looking at the current offering I can't see anything resembling a gigabag, nor can I find any mention of data modems or mifis in the help pages (although, to be fair, I can't find very much; the site has changed a lot since 2013).
So my question is, what's the current position regarding goodybags and mifis? Can I buy a goodybag and use it carefree in my mifi, or do I need to pay 5p/Mb on PAYG?
If you want kudos (and assuming that's still a thing) don't just give me an answer, provide a link to the page with the terms and conditions that spell this all out in excruciating detail for a nearly-noob like me
So, off you go!

Yep i remember you too as ive been here coming up 8 years now and still loving it here.
As all goodybags have unlimited minuits £10 and over with some great data with it then maybe you could tether your phone which im sure would be a good idea.
Please see the list of goodybags that is on offer
All the best Bob
@sheddi welcome back you can tether on any goody bags even the always on one but a traffic flow policy applies after the twenty gigs where if use to much you'll be asked to cut usage down or face a 93days ban from buying it
Also any devices that are ON 02 will work as its a mifi unit you'll likely need to alter the settings to match giffgaff ones for dongles here dongle settings

Oh the username and password for it are found below battery cover usually
Wow, some great answers from you all!
Thanks for reminding me how wonderful the giff community can be and, between me and others, everyone has shared the love and received some kudos!
Edit to add: I've bought my goodybag and am looking forward to some mifi streaming in the near future
