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

    There is an app in the market called Wifi Hotspot and USB Tether.

    Install, and enjoy. That simple!


    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.

    I have never heard of any user incurring charges from the carrier for using this app.

    On some phones, with some carriers, there is software that redirects all traffic to the carrier's home page, encouraging you to sign up for the hotspot plan, but if you don't choose to sign up, then they don't bill you.
    From what I've been told, this app works fine with Galaxy Nexus (traffic is not redirected).
    However, it is always possible that some time in the future, a carrier may block the app.

    Happy Holidays,

    I'll have to remember this if I ever need it... or if 4G actually reaches my area. I'm like 15-20 miles away from coverage on 2 sides of me. Verizon is toying with my 4G desires.

    I am rooted and tried it because Google Wifi Tether doesn't work for ICS yet. Unfortunatly it does not work on my Galaxy Nexus At times I could connect to the network but no internet, and other times it would connect with limited access.


    EDIT: I uninstalled and reinstalled and IT WORKS! Great app, and the first wireless tether not requiring root I believe!!

    I'm connected through it right now!

    Thanks for sharing. I have a "Conference" I am going to in Vegas next month and personal Wifi is a must for me.

    Thanks it works great without root.

    Ironic thing is I just called VZN this morning to add the $30 unlimited hotspot, and they told me it's not available anymore! Their loss!

    My phone won't arrive until tomorrow, at the earliest.

    Any way to purchase this app before it arrives?

    I don't think so as I have been using this on my Droid Charge for months. I think they can only tell how much data you are using and not what you are using it for.

    I believe you can buy it on the market in the computer browser. But its not like this app is going away.

    I've tried - but it says there's no phone connected to my account, which is true.

    And if it won't go away, cool - I just read a post above mine that said to get it while you can. I've missed out on a few of those with my iPhone.

    I wouldn't worry about it disappearing any time soon. It has been on the market for quiet some time

    Cool - thanks.

    I do have to admit that it's weird they won't sell you an app without owning a phone.

    How well does this work with Xbox Live? I connect my Xbox360 to my laptop for internet.

    Currently "borrowing" internet from an unknown neighbor at the same speed as 3G so I don't need to do it until 4G comes here.

    What is unlimited hotspot? Im switching from Verizon and I must say that I think they have MUCH better service but they more expensive for their plans.

    They had a plan add on if you had unlimited data you could take advantage of a hotspot for 30 bucks while keeping the unlimited data.

    Should work just fine. On 4g I'm pulling down over 30mbps.

    I just signed up as a new customer. The deal I got was $50 for 6GB + mobile hotspot. If you need more, it's $70 and $100 for 12GB and 22GB respectively.

    For those of you that are patient the wifi tether for root users is being worked on. The last update from a few hours ago did not work but I'm confident they will figure it out

    Ok ....bare with me on this. I am NOT tech at all.

    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.

    Will this work between my Nexus and Xoom?
