    Yes I have unlimited data and Fattin is working just fine.
    I can also confirm that this method works. Unlimited data on Verizon without a hotspot plan and can turn it on with fattin toggle no problem with no security check

    Yeah...my FoxFi is blocked (running stock Jelly Bean). Says it failed - I have an unlimited plan (how, I do not know, since they were running the 2GB thing when I signed in 2010). Anywho, I did find in some research that there is a backdoor widget - enables native without subscription check. Play Store name: Portable WiFi Hotspot Widget.

    Hope this helps. I feel your stock version pain. Made me wish I had pushed off JB and just kept ICS.

    Thanks! Tested on ICS and it works. Going to accept JB and pray it still does.......

    It didn't appear on any of my home screens nor in the apps/widgets drawer in JB.

    Currently unlocked but unrooted following the OTA.

    It works. You rock. Typing from note right now. Foxfire is dead but this portable wifi app does work on JB. Life can continue.
    Oh and my 4G signal is exceptional now on JB so helping the wifi

    I have the JB update waiting for me. I am just afraid to lose my wifi tethering ability. I have also been using Foxfi. I have a GNex from Verizon. Can I get any more assurance before upgrading, or any other advice or instructions? I am not sure I understand about using the native setting. Thanks!

    I was just as afraid. I'm stock GNEX vz and found that portable wifi app and it works on JB. I did the update and works like a charm with my Galaxy Note 10.1
    You are safe upgrading. All you have to do is hit the icon on your phone and it turns on your builtin wifi.

    If this is happening than im not going to update until im sure i can still use hotspot app. I use SVTP i wonder if anyone can still use SVTP after the JB uddate?
    I upgraded to JB last week (albeit flashing the official VZW version that was also just released rather than upgrading OTA) and SVTP still works for me, too.

    Love you guys for this. I was so pissed... just got a Nexus 7, tried using Wireless Tether and realized it stopped working since my Gnex (Verizon) was on JB and setting up tether through the menu and using FoxFi also failed because of no subscription. This app (Fattin) worked flawlessly. Thanks!!!

    I'm having the same problem, it seems that Verizon has found a way to pick up the signal than it shuts down the 4-g signal!

    OK, I'm joining the leagues of confused non-working users...

    I have a new RAZR M. Stock Jelly Bean. I'm on Verizon's Unlimited Talk & Text plan, which includes hotspot/tethering coverage. Laptop has Windows 7.

    I tried the tethering & hotspot once or twice before Christmas, but I tried to use it today without much luck.

    * Hotspot: my laptop connects to the hotspot almost instantly. Sometimes data gets out, sometimes not. It'll work for a few seconds and then nothing. Still connected to the hotspot but no internet.

    * Tethering: when I turn on the tethering, the Network & Sharing app locks up. Sometimes the pop-up "click on the icon in the systray to see available wifi" icon is also unresponsive. When it works, it shows an unknown network and "Identifying..." Network & Sharing is still hung while tethering is on. I think (as with the hotspot) I'll occasionally get a few seconds of data, even though nothing indicates I'm actually connected to the Internet, but most of the time, nothing.

    What would cause it to work sometimes and not others? Why are Win7 network apps hanging? How do I get this to WORK!?


    EDIT: I thought maybe the 4G signal was too flaky here, and that was why it would work for a few seconds and then die. So I thought I'd make sure to use a wifi connection for the phone -- instead of having the phone use 4G for its network connection -- and see if the laptop could successfully connect to the tethered phone that way. I found that enabling tethering TURNS OFF the wifi. Not only does it not use wifi while it's tethered, but the wifi stays off even after you turn off tethering! Is that intended??
