    Angry

    I got this on my 'stock' BIONIC and it works fantastic. Just worried that VZW is going to find some way to block this app or worse ? Paying VZW an extra $30 bucks for hotspot is a total ripoff. It's my data i'm paying for, so I should be able to rack it up anyway I want to!!!

    Just downloaded this and connected my Iconia Tab to my HTC Rezound. This is great. I had been lookin into a solution for this and really didn't want to pay to tether my tablet to my phone. I already have unlimited data. Even though the wifi doesn't work on the HTC, bluetooth works just fine for what I want to do with it. Keeping my fingures crossed VZ doesn't block this software in the future.

    I tried using this with my wife's new ipad. It recognized the "wifi" signal, but it never connected. I also noticed on my bionic that the stock hot spot app/function was also activated.

    Wow, I can't believe this made it to the News section. Foxfi has been available for a while now.

    Well, I guess at least others might find out about it, but there are other options available to ...without root.

    Great Application!

    I downloaded this Application last night and was very impressed. It tethers through pda net free of charge. Within 5 min. I was up and running on the laptop with super fast speeds. Incredible application. These Devolopers are far too kind...if I had created such a Gem I would absolutely have to charge for it lol.

    This isn't really new. I've been using Foxfi for about 5 weeks. With no problems.

    Will have to play with it a bit more. I installed it this morning on my D2G, fired it up, couldn't figure out how to turn it off so did a force stop.

    Within 2 hours by battery went from 100% down to 20%, and I wasn't using the phone for anything........usually my battery will go from 100% at 6am only down to 70% at about 10pm.

    I just wanted to clarify as this is what I always worry about when using a "free" wireless tether app. Verizon can't tell the difference between normal phone data usage and the usage through this hot spot correct? I refuse to pay for something that I'm already paying for... Always worry about the "surprise bill" that might come from some of these apps.

    I installed on the Galaxy Nexus. For me it turned on the Mobile Hotspot option on the phone (the option you would select if you were going to use the native hotsopt feature). Unchecking that turned it off for me.
