Actually, anyone try to tether with Lets Go?

Even if they sell these forfaits sans engagement to those with American credit cards, it wouldn't be as useful without being able to tether to other devices.

I would be surprised if they blocked tethering, as the Let's Go offer is meant to be used in MiFi, tablets, etc.

It would be great if they explicitly said it. The only possible reference I see is:

"Les usages Modem sont autorisés et décomptés de votre crédit."

But I don't even know if "usages Modem" means the same thing as tethering or more specifically, the "Personal Hotspot" feature in the iOS UI.

Is this sufficiently explicit for you?

Anyway, yes, "usage Modem" means tethering (or use within a dongle, a MiFi)

Did you find out if you can actually tether the Lets Go sim, I'm doing a trip in January and am very interested in finding out if you were able to do so

Yes I was able to tether.

But the amount of data used goes way up when you tether to a laptop.

I used the Settings app in my iPad Mini to track how much data I was using in the period and it seemed to go up more than what I would expect for downloading a few podcasts on my laptop. Hundreds of megabytes would click off some times.

Now of course this was just what my Mini was showing. I didn't register an Orange account to look for how much data they saw me use. They text you a registration code and my Mini can't get SMS.

So basically it would cost 28 Euros to get 2 GB of data over a month. You can use that up quickly if you tether.

I'll only be using it to tether to the phone and other iPads from the iPad, also do you know if they allow VoIP (Skype), and do they charge for roaming in monaco?
About the codes I wonder if one could set up the account on an iPhone 5 and then switch back to the iPad?

Not sure about Skype, I didn't try any VOIP.

And I don't know about Monaco either.

If your iPhone is unlocked, it should work.

Good luck.

No, because in Monaco you get direct coverage from Orange masts.
