Wasn't excited about the update but if you use foxfi as much as I do its worth the one time fee of $7.00. I just hope he will update soon to work with jellybean. If I understand his comments he will not update to support jellybean.
I do believe pda net works but not sure and also not sure if it is a wifi tether.
Otherwise you will need to root and install a rom with built in wifi tether.

If the paid version will work with JB the the consumer can either pay up or look for another wireless solution that works with JB. If both versions do not work with JB then the developer better find a new source of income. The JB thing may not be an issue for those of us on Verizon for a while given Big Red's track record of foot dragging with OS updates.
FYI, PdaNet uses FoxFi for wireless. As of now, PdaNet does not appear to have a wireless feature of it's own.

I am stock and unrooted. I have used FoxFi, since the gs3 came out, but last week I tried just using a hotspot widget to toggle the hit spot on/off. It works like a charm with no cost or charge, and I do NOT have a tethering plan with my grandfathered unlimited data plan. Using a widget bypasses the vzw tethrring plan activation. From what I have read, almost any hotspot toggle from the Play store should do the trick.

Hello, need some advice concerning connecting via bluetooth using FoxFi... I have the app on a Virgin Mobile LG Optimus Elite (does it work on this phone?). I've followed the FoxFi instructions for paring the devices (phone & laptop - 5 y/o Acer Aspire running Windows Vista) and I've made it to the pairing, but haven't been able to make a succesfull connection. When I get to the point where the laptop is trying to "download the drivers for the bluetooth peripheral device" it always fails. I also tried using a Samsung Infuse 4G, and the same thing happened, paring ok, but no connection. Any clue as to what I am doing wrong?
I haven't tried connecting the VM phone using the hotspot option on FoxFi, will try that tonight. I don't think I want to try and activate the FoxFi hotspot connection on the Infuse, since that one doesn't have unlimited data, like the VM phone has, and I'm afraid that option (and not the bluetooth one) is going to kill my data plan. Can someone please tell me if this is a correct assumption?
Thank you for your help! And Happy Thanksgiving!

It sounds like your problem is a bluetooth driver problem and you have not even gotten to try FoxFi using bluetooth. I have connected using bluetooth and wifi using a Verizon S3 and win 7 64 bit PC. I had Vista for a short time and was very disappointed with it. If you have any opertunity to try same on a Win 7 PC I would suggest you try it.Galaxy S5 16GB Not Rooted

Back in August, Verizon was legally forced to allow users to tether with 3rd party apps (suchs as foxfi) for free. Happy new year.
