    1) I think you mean "Firefox", perhaps?
    2) WHICH versions? Mainline? Beta? Nightly? 17?
    3) The body of your post contains nothing

    I know what he means and don't download it. The new version has usage limits unless you pay. I got rid of the old version and downloaded it only to find this out.

    I did the same thing updated it and was only able to use it for 30 min till you had to pay. Shame it was a good free tethering app.

    He means foxfi.

    Basically, as others are saying, the only thing that is different is that you have to pay for the full version to tether for more than half an hour at a time.

    Also, you can get the old version off the amazon appstore.

    Old version has been nixed. Won't let you turn it on unless you update to the latest version. Still can't beat it for $6. Especially when sprint charges 29 a month!

    I got the old version from the amazon store and after about 2 days of non continual use it still expired and pointing me to the paid version. And yes 6.00 dollars beats 30.00 any day !

    Regardless of the app price and function, I think it is pretty slimy for a previous version of an app to "phone home" and determine it is not the latest version and then break itself until you install a newer AND crippled version...

    It's slimy to want to be paid for your work? This guy is a superb programmer and I'm happy to support his app with my 7 dollars. Do you expect to get paid where you work? C'mon, I tipped my waitress more than that Saturday night.

    He is taking away something that was already given. Do you routinely go and take back your Christmas presents you gave to people last year and say "that will be $7 please, or you can only use the present for 30 min?" Of course not.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with him changing his mind and making a new version that has limitations. But having quasi-spyware (phone home) in an older version that FORCES someone to upgrade which results in total loss of functionality until the upgrade and a major loss in functionality after the "upgrade" is....

    Again, it has nothing to do with them deciding to come out with a new version that is limited. That is their choice, and perfectly fine.

    It has to do with BREAKING THE OLD VERSION that people already have installed. And to do it by force, the way they have done, means there is quasi-spyware "phone home" stuff in the program.

    Doesn't matter anymore since even the paid version won't work on 4.1

    Wow this stinks not being able to use foxfi. I hope that's something they will fix. I mean the Foxfi folks, I don't see Sprint doing anything about that.
