The only unmetered unlimited data plan with tethering allowed is the One plan from Three "3" at £25 a month.
All pay as you go plans I have looked at don't allow tethering if you read the terms and conditions.
Virgin allow tethering on pay monthly plans but its subject to a fair usage.

From virgin mobile forums usage is now 2.5gb or 3.5gb depending on join date then speeds are dropped to 48kps
Hi all,


Following changes to our acceptable use policy, from 24 January 2013 new and upgrading Pay Monthly/Sim only Mobile customers will only be permitted to use their data allowance to access the mobile internet on their handset. This means you are not permitted to use your mobile as a modem to connect other devices to the internet, also known as 'tethering'.


Existing customers who have joined before 24 January are not affected by this change; but as previously mentioned whilst it may possible to tether on your mobile device, Virgin Media does not provide the technical support for tethering.


In addition, customers who joined after 25 June 2012 will see a change to the excessive usage threshold of our acceptable use policy. Like other mobile networks we sometimes have to review usage in order to ensure the majority of customers remain unaffected by the minority using high amounts of data. You can see the changes to the acceptable use policy here.


We hope this clarifies the situation on tethering for everyone. We'll keep this page updated with any changes should they arise.


Many thanks.

Thanks both please see the virgin mobile forum it is not unlimited anymore as I was on the same plans but for 8 quid. Once you hit 3.5gb your speed is now capped to around 300kps so I guess it is unlimited just your speed is capped

RUNNING San Diego on VIRGIN media pay monthly.
BIG BIG Thanks to this forum to the person who posted that this phone works out of the box on Virgin!!
YES YES thats right just brought the phone form an EE shop 99 pounds plus a new orange micro sim that you do have to top up 10 pounds on, but hey no big deal! Charged the phone got my standard Virgin sim and got car phone warehouse to cut it down to micro sim size (free) poped it in and switched on phone. Message pops up do you want to down load Virgin settings press OK and thats it!!! £12 + vat permonth on virgin = 1200 mins, 5000 or maybe unlimited texts (can't remember), 1G data. You can change tarifs when ever you wish. They do one at £17 + vat with unlimited data!
As far as I know you can run it on Tmobile too.
Question is do you really need more than the 3 networks to run on this great quick phone?

In that case SignalBoost and Orange are your friends.

So the answer would be yes, as long as you can persuade Orange to unlock it. ;-)

Probably not, they now insist on 6 months of use on their network.
