I don't usually get a chance to talk about anything techie, but I hope this may help some of you, if you're having the same challenges as I had with getting tethering to work.
The bit they don't tell you is as follows:-
After you have purchased the Tethering Bolt On, and it's live on your account,
you need to reset your phone like this:-
Settings> General> Reset> Reset Network Settings> (Red Button) "Reset Network Settings"
When you do that, the phone reboots itself, taking a few minutes to get back to your Home screen.
If you then try:-
Settings> General> Network
"Internet Tethering" should now appear!
WARNING: WHEN YOU ARE NOT ACTUALLY USING IT, MAKE CERTAIN YOU TURN TETHERING OFF!!
o2 tell me it takes precedence over any wifi connection you may have available, so you may think you're on wifi, but you'll be using tethering!
Apple site explains here:-
iPhone Internet Tethering Bolt On required?

Hope this helps your iPhone Mobile Internet Experience.
