    Default Link to get wifi tether on GB or ICS Rezound

    Hope the mods don't mind, but there have been so many questions on this, I thought I should post. Maybe this should be stickied.

    I'm rooted, S-ON, CleanROM 1.7 GBE and using the process and apk from here:

    [MOD][07.14.12][Hotspot AP mode fix - LIVE on android-wifi-tether site][GB/ICS] - xda-developers

    I can tether my Nexus 7, laptop and my girlfriends phone.

    As it says, there is also information and how-to for ICS. This was what I had been looking for for a long time.

    On ics the tether works as it should. Just set it to cdma nexus, check routing fix and wifi driver reload.

    Is there a wireless tether like foxfi for Rezound that does not require root? Just got ICS.

    I'm going to guess, as long as you don't have unlimited data, soon you should be able to tether all you want. Verizon got sued by Uncle Sam about blocking these apps.

    Same question about how to tether my laptop to my newly updated ICS stock ReZound. So there isn't anything out there for us yet, we have to wait? I'm still on unlimited data.

    Technically you should be able to "force" Verizon to turn on wifi hotspot for free. Other than that, use wifi tether from android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users - Google Project Hosting This does require root access. Foxfi works with bluetooth as far as I know, but the only wifi tether is for rooted users.
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.

    Dunno, maybe dangle some legalese in front of them...However you do it, make sure you report back. I'm sure there are others that would love to know the same thing.

    Don't bother, I tried yesterday. The reps don't even know about the FCC settlement and unless you're on the Share Everything plan they are still charging $20. The FCC settlement really did nothing to help.

    File a complaint with the FCC. I've even heard the "Free tethering" commercials. So customer service has to know. And they can't lie and say that it's not compatible with your plan, because it's "compatible" on all C-block (read 4G) phones. Otherwise they're just looking to get sanctioned/fined again.

    I don't know that the FCC ruling stated they had to "offer" free tethering. They just can't block free tethering if I'm understanding it correctly. They can charge for their own app (similar to VZ Navigator) but they can't block the other apps from the market anymore.

    There are. Wifi tether is one app. Granted many of these apps don't work right with the rezound, but when I had my Dinc, you had to find the apk on the web and sideload them as VZW blocked them from view on the Market/Google Play. Now they are all visible. Root is still required.

    What worked for me -- My Rezound is rooted, stock ICS ROM.
    I installed "WiFi Tether" from the Play store (the newer one with the Yellow wifi icon) As mentioned above, under "WIFI" Choose Rezound under "Change Device Profile" also check the box next to "WiFi-driver reload" and towards the bottom of the list under "LAN" check the box to enable to "Routing Fix" Thanks to the posters in this thread, I wouldn't have figured it out without your help.

    Need Help!! I'm having problems with WIFI Tether on my rooted Rezound with stock ICS ROM. Everything starts up fine but I'm unable to see the SSID on any of my devices (Laptop/tablets), not sure where the problem is as I've followed all the above steps multiple times.

    What are your settings? Did you choose the Galaxy Nexus CDMA profile and change the setup method?
