    Default Using Foxfi or PDANET for internet access

    I know the hotspot WIFI mode currently does not work with foxfi/PDANET. Does the Bluetooth mode work? I have read conflicting info and would like to know if anyone here has used Bluetooth mode with foxfi/PDANET or any other app. I will probably switch to a Maxx, but only using USB mode is a show stopper for me.

    I use pdanet for USB tethering and then on the PC app there is a WiFi share option that I know works as well.. I am not sure about Bluetooth though. I can test it when I get home this afternoon and let you know.

    Sorry for not replying earlier. I tested Bluetooth and it would connect to my tablet but it could not establish an internet connection.

    I have used Bluetooth on two different tablets and it does work but has limits. You can't run most apps that required a connection. Browsing the web works fine. You can get about a 2mb connection from it.

    Thanks, I used bluetooth and pdanet on my tablet when jb broke foxfi for awhile on my razr maxx. From what I recall I could read email and browse. It would not work with netflix however. Bily, when you tried to connect did you have pdanet installed on the tablet and start it before attempting a bluetooth connection? Ialso remember having to set a proxy IP address. I don't know if the new version works this way. I will go back and try using the bluetooth mode on my razr maxx. If it still works I will post the steps. The app on my tablet is pdanet tablet. Thanks umass and Billy

    UPDATE: I followed the instructions for pdanet tablet and foxfi for phone. It works still. Thanks again umass, I can now seriously consider getting the maxx.

    I can also use wireless tethering also with the maxx but I am still on 4.2.2 and never got the KitKat update. I have heard that 4.4 breaks the WiFi tether feature when it does finally get pushed back out again.

    If I get the maxx and it is on4.2.2 can I keep refusing to update to 4.4? That way it would preserve foxfi working in wifi mode.

    If you are using Kit Kat WIFI mode does not work. I emailed FoxFi and here is there response to me:

    Unfortunately your carrier has blocked WiFi mode in the latest phone
    update. You can only use USB mode or Bluetooth mode instead while
    we look for any possible solutions.
