Looking at Skinny's website the only reference to tethering appears to be in relation to their Data Binge offering.

 

Can any geekzone members advise if Skinny Mobile plans support iPhone hotspots? 

 

The plans look great but this is a must have feature that I get from my current provider.

only plan you cannot tether on is the unlimited one, for obvious reasons...

Just looking to confirm that people are able to tether from their phones. This is also a must-have for me, and a chat with their support yesterday suggested this is a no-go.

I’m looking at one of the midsize plans, not the largest one. There is no unlimited that I can see...

Thanks!!

Check your APN settings as you're probably missing an option

Sounds APN related. As a test... Lock your phone to 3G, Does data work then?

@openmedia This is controlled from the network side not related to anything missing

I had this issue for a while on android with both Skinny and Spark - It usually required DUN to be added to the APN type

One is cricut switch and the other packet switch so changing APN settings will not help
