    Default jelly bean wifi tether

    Has anyone got a working WiFi tether? Or will the default one work since this is a port from the gsm and VZW has touched this. Would that allow it to be free or will it charge? I turned it on but didn't get a msg about adding hotspot to the plan like on my dads thunderbolt. So give me some info plz

    I would think if you get no warning you're good to go. In ICS if you turned in the hot spot via a widget and not from the settings menu it bypasses the carrier check and you get free wifi hot spot

    How did you try and turn it on?

    Working fine on JB here, too. Just turned it on in settings & used it on my Acer a100. Connected right up & full 4G speeds.

    Have you all (the recent posters) tried tethering via the settings menu option?

    It should be free of charge, Verizon does not monitor it.

    I tried the settings version of wi-fi tether and it is asking for a password.

    It works like it always has ... just download switchpro or any other widget from the market and use the built in tether. You may even be able to select it from the settings menu. If you don't get a warning from VZW when you activate the hotspot all is fine and you can tether free of charge.


    Edit: Just tried it from the settings menu and it works like a champ. No need for the widget if ya dont want to.

    For some reason Wifi tethering will not work whatsoever on Jellybean on my device. I've tried multiple apps from the Play Store as well as the tethering option in the settings menu. The only thing that works is USB tethering.

    I loaded Razor's JB and the settings option did not work for me, however I switched over to Vicious V4 JB and it works perfectly with no warnings at all.

    I tried to tether my LTE GNex to my Nexus 7, it connects but the WiFi icon remains grey and it never gets internet access.

    I'm running the latest Vicious 4.1.1 rom.

    Does activating the wi-fi through settings go a lot slower for you guys as well? Not as in slow internet connection, but it takes a while to send out wifi-signal and connect.. This was true for me and my brother (both have rooted G.Nex on JB)..

    Found this on XDA. I can confirm it works on leaked official JB rooted and w/o the carrier check (e.g. free)

    Just updated OTA this morning. FoxFi doesn't work anymore and turning on wifi tethering via Settings->Wireless &Networks-More->Tethering & portable hotspot->Portable Wi-Fi hotspot option checks my "subscription status" and fails unless I agree to sign up for $30/month.

    Same thing is true for Bluetooth and USB tethering as well.

    I am on a Grandfathered Unlimited Data plan, so I am already paying $30/month for unlimited data, but now I can no longer tether with any of it without paying for it again, and then only 2gigs I think. Looking for a way to return to ICS 4.0.4 from this jellybean OTA.
