    Wow, can't believe I never saw this before! A flat $15 beats $30 a month 10 days a week. I'm actually very surprised these guys haven't been shut down (or are at least more popular).

    Suuriously though, any risk of this app getting taken away if the big boys complain about it loud enough?

    the apps and methods discussed in this thread are explicitly ways to get around paying verizon for tethering, since the phones support the ability natively. these are legit and without any monthly fees.

    Just tried it with the IMM76K build. I enabled hotspot using a toggle on extended controls. Connected my Galaxy Tab, and I was on the Internet just like before.

    Why would you need this or WIFI when you have 4G?

    Especially the person that is going to Vegas. Wouldn't it be perfect 4G there?

    I'm here to learn so take it easy on me.
    I am sympathetic... most of the people here are pretty advanced! You use a hotspot to create a wifi signal with your phone that you can pick up with other devices. I use it for work while traveling to get Internet on my laptop. I was lucky enough to get in on the old offer of $30/month unlimited in late March -- so glad I did. On my old Droid I had one of the hotspot apps but Verizon figured it out. One day I went to turn it on and I got a screen from Verizon inviting me to sign up for hotspot service! Hopefully this won't happen to all the folks using this app.

    I bought the "pro" version after trying the trial. It wouldn't allow me to register it to my phone, saying it was already registered to another phone. I don't have another phone, so that's impossible. Numerous emails to SVTP went unanswered. I've started a paypal dispute to get my money back. A shame, cuz the trial worked so perfectly...

    Later,

    I'm using Foxfi on 4.0.4 and cant get my laptop to connect to the internet that way, but my girlfriends iPhone can connect to the internet through it?

    BTW I am not rooted or unlocked or any of that.........yet. Is it easier to get a hotspot working going that route?

    look, I'm no techie, but all you have to do is get the app widgizoid, turn on the switch for tethering/hotspot, touch to configure, check portable wi-fi hotspot, and you're good to go.

    Clearly, Verizon's whole model is switching with the new plans where you get limited data but it includes tethering.

    I have not been charged for my ocassional use.

    I have the samsung galaxy S3 and the share everything plan so hotspot is free.... and when I use foxfi, it actually connects much faster than the stock hotspot.. think the speed is faster too.

    Samsung still has some issues... I had to install foxfi to even get my phone to connect to internet.. then I was able to uninstall foxfi and its worked everysince.. however it takes a while for my windows 7 64bit machine to identify the network before internet is available, when using foxfi its nearly instant.

    I bought this when I had the Droid Charge and I was extremely pleased it works with my Nexus.


    As some have asked, I am not rooted.

    Will this continue to work when the OTA Jelly Bean update is released?

    Stock for once.

    Default Re: WIFI HotSpot w/out a plan CONFIRMED TO WORK! No root needed.

    Oops...it didn't quote the other guy. The $30.00 mobile hotspot is not available anymore because it is automatic and comes off of the data plan you have. That is the way it is for those of us like ME who have a 4GB data plan...or 5, 10, whatever. I guess if you're still on unlimited, you're good to go...so I don't see a need in spending 9.99 for something already there.

    I can confirm this works with the Razr M without root - although you have to use the Samsung ICS Device Profile.
