    WiFi Tether issue with Razr M

    I just upgraded my wife's phone to the Razr M. I decided I wouldn't root it as Foxfi would give us the wifi we wanted without the hassle of rooting. Well we just got the phone yesterday and the wifi was working, then it updated to 4.0 or 4.1 and now I can't find any wifi app that will allow me to use wifi under my standard data (we have the unlimited data package that verizon no longer sells). We go through 25-30 gigs per billing cycle on this line.

    Is there a good wifi solution without rooting the phone?
    Also, I want the fastest wifi possible, which apps are best and do I need to root the phone in order to get maximum wifi speeds?

    Your wifi is working, you just can't tether to it. Correct?

    Yeah, a prompt says I do not have WiFi with verizon, ask me to add the feature for $29.95 per month. It did that with about 5 no root wifi apps I DL last night. The phone still lets me do USB tether though.

    I was gonna suggest the usb. The reason I did ask was the title of this thread was misleading. I changed it, maybe it'll get more views. Sorry I can't help with the wifi tether, I'm rooted & use a wifi tether app for root users

    Is rooting easy enough I could do it on my own without having done it before? We really need to use the WiFi, we used it all the time with her old phone which I paid a guy to root for us.

    Re: WiFi Tether issue with Razr M

    Rooting isn't that hard, but I don't have a Razr to know the steps well enough to guide you Maybe someone will offer some help

    Well I figured it out, kinda. Foxfi or any of the other no-root wifi apps don't work on jellybean.... yet. So I either wait for them to figure out how to work with JB or root my phone.

    What phone and carrier are you using?
    Are you rooted?
    Also I need the WiFi connection not the Bluetooth.
