Data tethering not working on Ulefone

Hi there,

 

I have a Ulefone Metal (Chinese, but better performance than many A-level phones), but I can't seem to get the tethering working with Plus Net.

 

Does anybody know of a fix for this, so I can use my tablet with the Plusnet data?

Hi AJvan!

Thanks for getting in touch!

We do support data tethering however, this is handset dependant and only if the handset allows. I can't advise of the make and model specifically however, due to it's origin and specifications, this may be the reason as to why it isn't working. 

I would advise to speak with the handset manufacturers themselves regarding this.

@AJvan you'll probably need to do the 'tether dun required' trick. See here https://diggle.tech/news/2016/03/enable-tethering-android-5-1-beyond-marshmallow/

@AJvan yes, I tried that first on my Cubot phone. I had to do the 'tether_dun_required' setting using adb
