    Ok, you have to uninstall foxfi in apps, then google foxfi and install the bin file from foxfi website. Basically you have to uninstall and reinstall to get it working....and all is good
    That's what I did also and works fine

    It does not work on mine, running 4.04.4. Are you running ICS?

    Couldn't get the side-loading to work for me. Installed it just fine, but my computer would not connect.

    Here's the link to FoxFi's website.
    Here's the link to the page with a link to the apk.

    Hope you have better luck than me.

    ** I'm running ICS. Installed it with the manual update method, not the OTA.

    Dear foxfi,
    I knew you were too good to be a true
    This is not a Foxfi issue. This is a carrier issue. Carriers do not want us to have free tether even though it costs them no more than if we were using data through our phones. It's just their way of trying to get us to pay to tether. Last I heard Foxfi was working on a workaround but I'm sure they more workarounds they create, the more carriers will just block them.

    It still says that...

    FoxFi Installer
    *Support for the new Galaxy S3 and the new ICS update for Epic Touch are being worked on. Should be compatible soon in a future update.
    It still says they are working on it all the way at the bottom.....FoxFi Installer

    I need them to update ASAP. I need my tablet to connect outside of my house. Otherwise it's just an Angry Birds machine for my kids lol

    Sir, if you're using stock, your words are like dung on a farm. Sprint blocked any application required access to the stock hotspot app (which is what FoxFi does) and FoxFi acknowledged that it doesn't work as Sprint blocked that vulnerability.

    How did you get Gingerbread on a phone, that comes with Ice Cream Sandwich , unless you downgraded which deserves this.

    Wi-fi tether is a good ICS alternative at the moment.

    FoxFi has not worked since ICS came into play, whether you have a SGII or SGIII...it was blocked by Sprint with the ICS update and they've been unable to break. I broke down and spent the money on Tether because I needed it...not wireless but works.
