    I set up foxfi on my phone when it was on the new line. I went to Verizon and changed the phone to my unlimited data plan and foxfi still works perfectly. Should I expect any difficulty from verizon? ( like a big bill) or is this ok?

    My wife has been using it and the bill has been normal.

    Foxfi works great on my Verizon Note 2 for wireless tethering ! You just need to first download the free version to make sure it works on your device. If so, then go ahead and upgrade to the full version by paying a measly $6.97 so there is no time out. As another poster commented, you can very easily set/change the password for wifi access. Foxfi works even better than Easy Tether Pro because Foxfi doesn't require any USB cords for tethering, whereas Easy Tether Pro does. Seriously, I would have easily paid triple the price for Foxfi, it's worth it !

    Just an FYI here. I tried installing Foxfi to my friend's LG Esteem phone from MetroPCS, but the Foxfi app immediately gave an error message that the app is not compatible with that particular phone. Piece of cr@p LG Esteem! Unfortunately, this was one of the best Android phones available at that sub-par carrier known as MetroPCS. This is why you should first download the free version of Foxfi to make sure it works with your particular phone before paying for the upgraded version.

    Thank you for bringing 'Foxfi' to light, as I have used 'PdaNet' for over a year to tether Tbolt to laptop in the car, but you DO have to use USB cord, and I paid $15.99 for the full app! Can't wait to get the GN2 and will check out the foxfi! Wireless would be fantastic and I am on unlimited data.

    when I try to use FoxFi, whenever I turn it on, it brings up the built-in "Mobile Hotspot" app configuration which I assume will cause charges from Verizon. Is this not right?

    I use Portable Wifi on the Note 2. I have Jellywiz on the S3. I go back and forth between the two devices. I think you could portble on the s3.

    I've been using the mobile hotspot app that came with our Note 2s with no problems. But then again, I'm rooted so that's no problem either.

    You don't need to root to get wireless tethering. Foxfi for example or changing the carrier settings file.

    I get exactly the same thing, however no additional charges are incurred on my bill. I've been using FoxFi for a few months now.

    Here's a newsflash regarding Foxfi and PdaNet+ in case you haven't heard this before. I have friends who have HTC smartphones through Sprint and Verizon. When they try installing Foxfi and/or PdaNet+, they get an error message that says "WiFi mode can not be activated on HTC phones due to an HTC hotspot lock. Please use Bluetooth Mode instead. See Bluetooth Help on how to set it up". I tried using Bluetooth mode on a friend's Verizon HTC phone, and the browser redirected to Verizon's page for choosing a wifi hotspot plan with corresponding monthly fees. F*******ing HTC phones! I'm glad to have gotten rid of my HTC Thunderbolt phone!

    I use FoxFi, but whenever I connect more than one device (and even sometimes with just one device) my data will shut off and on. It seems to happen less when there is no security but I would rather not leave it like that. I'd like to keep my Note 2 unrooted and I have searched for a fix but have found nothing. Also, is there the same issues for anyone who is rooted using a rooted tether app?
