    I have Samsung galaxy s ii. Foxfi worked before, not now. I uninstalled foxfi, reinstalled and also downloaded foxfi add on. While this new update has created many issues on my phone, not being able to use with my pc is the greatest issue.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I was afraid they would do that. I wonder if foxfi will figure a way around that like they did when play store took foxfi off. Now can i get back my original gingerbread version so I can use foxfi again.

    The Foxfi download page suggests they're working on it. And considering the update wasn't officially announced for our phones until last week, it seems like they're pretty much on the ball, this quote comes direct from the link below:

    Thank you both for the information. My question now is: How can we be notified when Foxfi will become compatible with ios update.

    Although I am in the same boat...I used FoxFi to connect my Samsung 10.1 to the web...now can't do that. Sucks!!

    FYI, before you had to pay to bluetooth tether. Seems to work free of charge on ice cream sandwich. So bluetooth tethering is a free alternative in the meantime.

    I have been using the bluetooth tethering on my Samsung Tab 2 and it is working fine. You just have to download the pdanet on the tablet side and pair it. You can use that until they update the software for our phone.

    Yes, I have pda.net. I had it before Foxfi, and forgot about it. So I'm back on my pc again with pda.net.

    I have a 9 month old Sprint GalaxyII ( Epic 4G Touch )

    Foxfi worked great till the update yesterday. I thought it might be me or my specific hardware, but after reading this thread I think it is a Sprint thing and I hope a Foxfi update comes soon.

    After much tinkering today, I did get the Bluetooth DUN on FoxFi to work on my laptop ( a Dell Core2 Studio ) and my Imac ( yes, I have an Imac!!! )

    Considering the "benefits" of Android 4.0.04 on the S2, I wish I could go back to 2 and have a functioning Foxfi. But I guess I will live with the Bluetooth tethering and hope that Foxfi addresses the issue soon.

    Because I rarely have time to get on my computer, except while on the run at hotspots, I don't have internet access at my house and didn't realize until today that the recent Sprint update foisted on me by Sprint cut me off from tethering. I see others have known for a month. Thanks for the info. I'll stop banging my head against the proverbial wall and try bluetooth
    I hope Foxfi finds a workaround (at least till thwarted again). Watch for a bluetooth block in the near future.

    !!! You are right.

    I posted above you that FoxFi stopped working for me with the ICS update but that I was still able to use Bluetooth tethering.

    Well, as of a week ago the Bluetooth tethering stopped working too. And this happened on both my HP laptop and my Imac. So I'm pretty sure it was a Sprint software modification that stopped FoxFi Bluetooth tethering.

    I am going to give it a few weeks and then root then phone, though I would prefer not to.

    Does anyone have any experience with rooting after the ICS update. And of course, were you able to use a hotspot app after the rooting. I love FoxFi but I think it is primarily for non-rooted phones. Anyone know of this and if FoxFi or another app would be best after a root?

    That's only for rooted phones isn't it?

    You don't have to be rooted. I use it and I am on stock ICS. But it only works for internet, but not for netflix or downloading things. Hopefully they are close to making it work. Does anyone know if there is another wifi tethering that does work with our phone?

    Not sure why you posted that, lol

    It's easy enough to install, it just doesn't work with the ICS update.

    Does anyone know of an alternative to FoxFi? Since it still does not work on 4.0.04, not the WiFi and neither bluetooth. I have a Samsung Galaxy S 2 with Simple Mobile. Can I downgrade to 2.3? Please help!!!

    Use svtp Wi-Fi tether and USB. It's in the market under Wi-Fi tether. It works like foxfi.
