    If I had the unlimited data plan I would definitely consider it

    So you just fire up foxfi and you're good to go? No hassles from VZW?

    I would imagine if you start suddenly pulling down tens to hundreds of gigs a month, VZW might catch on. For small amounts, they probably won't notice and/or care.

    fyi, you can use the stock mobile hotspot app without subscription , but you would need to activate it with a third party widget like power widget or elixir.

    Yeah the short ime i used it it was great, but the sgs3 just didnt hold a strong enough 4g connection for me in my house so im back to wifi tether with my thunderbolt. I use about 15-20gb per month, lately on the higher side

    Would this affect my unlimited data plan if I use the stock hot spot? I'm aware the new data plans include hotspot.

    I used power controls and it worked perfectly. Thanks for the tip.

    Downloading around 12 mbs, uploading 12-13mbs. Actually a little better than Uverse on downloading and straight killing the upload speeds. Because I got lucky and was able to keep unlimited I will probably be canceling Uverse

    I have unlimited and I use and and no Verizon has not said anything and I called a buddy and he said they didn't know. But I don't completely abuse it either but I get a damn good signal and speed so I use to power my laptop at work sometimes. But I do that with my jailbroken Ipad too! I just hope they don't start throttling like at&t did. I have 3 unlimited lines to I make sure I spread out my usage equally so it don't look to obvious.

    Foxfi is great! I don't use it unless I absolutely need the speed, like when many members of my family are pulling on our pathetic 3mbps at&t plan.

    Even with watching a few Netflix movies tethered I pull around 40gb a month.

    Have you ever been warned for tethering with ATT, I have gotten a warning with the Iphone, and now switched to an S3, but am not sure if I can go undetected. Like you it is an "as-needed" thing when I am in a pinch.
    What sucks, is that I pay them for my internet service at home, and I am unlimited on my contract, so I really shouldn't have to pay any more anyway in my opinion.

    Use the foxfi add-on to mask your tethering, works great. I used it on my Photon, averaged 30gig/mth with no issues.

    Use this, or any other toggle widget. It will bypass the Verizon authentication to use the hotspot.
