I couldn't even watch a full episode of lost before told me I reached my limit and needed to buy the full version or restart the app. Bunch of sellouts I used to think the developers for this app where really bad*ss for going against the carriers but now they're lame
I've been using foxfi for years for free, I'm more then happy to pay a dev 6- to have the full version, making programs and writing code is no easy task(or everyone would do it) 6- for 2 year, plus many more is a great buy, i pay for mobile hotspot, but vzw's app sucks so i us foxfi, very user friendly and works perfect on razr, being cool doesn't pay the bills.

Taking an app that people cherished as being free and a staple of reason android is so amazing and during down all support unless you'll comply by passing them is an awful thing to do.it's not about being cool. Besides , there were lots of other ways they could've went about this. This was a nasty greedy way. It's something Verizon would do
Let's keep this thread civil.

First of all, to the guy saying we're complaining about people wanting to be paid for their work, that's pretty dumb. Personally, I don't mind spending 7$, I just don't like how this was implemented. One day I go to use it and I get a message saying I can't. What's to stop them from doing the same thing six months from now citing that they've had to do a lot of upgrades? Does this eventually turn in to a monthly update costing money? I'm not down for that. I'd pay money for this, but I know there are free alternatives, and I don't trust FoxFi anymore. I can't merit spending money on a product when it's use can be taken away at any given time.
Really disappointed with this. I know there are alternatives such as rooting your phone, but are there any alternatives for those of us who don't want to bother rooting?
If anything, FoxFi doing this will just get me to stop being lazy and root my phone finally.
The updated app still allows you to use it for free, there are just usage limits. For an app that has no ads, no pop ups, etc. you've been getting a pretty good deal.
What's to stop them from doing this again in 6 months? Nothing. You will however have saved $173 in that period so you might keep that in mind. If they charge $7/month? Still saving $23/month.
If people want to complain about getting ripped off, how about they actually get ripped off first?
You have to know that if Verizon could jump in and disallow any tethering without paying their $30 fee/month, they would. The nominal fee we pay to give back to developers for a service that simply works as billed, is a drop in the bucket to what you'd have to fork over to Big Red. Enjoying life my friends, simply isn't free.
You are 100% correct. By the way, after Fox fi popped up the message saying it would no longer work, I rooted my s3 specifically for wireless tether. Guess what? Wireless tether apps are broken on rooted s3's running jelly bean. Fox fi wouldn't even work. So then I unrooted just to make sure I didn't screw up my radio or anything and I tried watching an episode of lost with Fox fi. I watched 5 minutes before my connection was interrupted and Fox fi popped up in my notification bar saying I reached the data cap and needed to restart the connection. ALL of this happened because of a stupid pop-up from Fox fi saying that it was no longer supported and I needed to upgrade and pay them. THAT'S GRIMY. So guess what, now I'm just using pda net and it works perfectly while charging my battery at the same time.Originally Posted by Hysterics
