I've got svtp (paid) as a hot spot app. It works sometime, like about 3 times today, then I try starting it and it stops by itself before initializing. I called Verizon about setting up their hotspot and they wanted $20-30 a month depending on how I wanted it. I told them no thanks, it's something that should be free.
I only use it when my satellite is down, maybe once or twice a year.
My question....if I root my maxx, can I get around Verizon's hotspot and get one that would work dependably?

Re: Hot spot
I can't answer your rooting question, but I can say that FoxFi has so far worked well for me. It's a popular tethering app that used to be free, but now does have a paid version (which I think is totally fine, since it's a very useful app). If you use the free app, it will allow you to use it for a certain amount of data, then will stop--you can restart it, and it will still be free, but it's just a hassle. The paid version is $7 and gets around this limitation, and in my opinion is well worth it. A small caveat--it currently is not compatible with Jellybean phones.

Re: Hot spot
If Foxfi doesn't work for you, I have always used Barnacle which requires root, it does the job well.
I should clarify that I have yet to try it on my Maxx though.
