    Default FoxFi/Free Wifi on the Verizon Note 3

    Has a workaround been found yet for the latest update of the Verizon Note 3 to be able to get free wifi or use apps like Foxfi? The home button trick has been patched in the December update. I don't feel like paying for free wifi. I am considering rooting but first I want to find out if any way has been found without rooting.

    Foxfi works without root. Just cancel if Verizon warning comes up then turn uncheck Foxfi and try again. Works great for me.

    FoxFi works fine after the Dec update.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but what does FoxFi do that VZW's built-in Mobile Hotspot app? Don't you pay for data either way?

    I understand on Sprint with unlimited mobile data that does NOT including tethering there is an advantage to FoxFi or similar apps (i.e. unlimited tethering data at no extra charge), but on VZW you pay for data whether it's destination is the phone itself or passed-through to another device.

    The point is that some legacy data plans do not include tethering. You have to pay for it at an additional charge

    FoxFi working for me as well on Verizon. As someone else said, you just have to back out of the subscription screen.

    The big question is now will they be able to re-engineer after Kit Kat. They've always been able to do it in past updates. Sometimes it takes a month for specific models and carriers. But this is the first time that I've seen them throw up a warning screen about the possibility that it won't work worth a specific upgrade, i.e. Kit Kat. I wonder if they know something that we don't.

    For that reason I am not looking forward to kit kat.
    Good to know that Verizon seems to always be last on updates, hopefully Foxfi figures out a fix!

    I'm using it now. I do have to try 3 times before it works though.
