    Can you load apps from the market on the tablet while BT tethered? Does gmail on the tablet work? Both of these would not work for me.

    Gmail seems okay, but the market doesn't download apps for some reason.

    Gmail sync was hit and miss. I am just going to pay the 30 bucks until someone figures it out.

    I am a new user to the Rezound. After the ICS update I was able to get tethering to work with my laptop with Easytether Pro ($10). Admittedly it requires a USB cable to connect the phone to the computer, but it works flawlessly. Also, I was able to tether the phone to our Samsung Galaxy Tabs wirelessly using FoxFi and PDAnet. Just some food for thought for those of you paying Verizon to tether your phone to your devices.

    So, I get a notification that there is an update for FoxFi. So I'm like, cool...maybe something in the update will address the issue I am having, in that it doesn't work for me.

    Nope. I couldn't even download it. It said it wasn't compatible with my OS. I am running ICS. WTF?

    WiFi tether for root just updated and now has the ability to set up for rezound. It works but not that fast.

    Verizon got foxfi blocked in the Google play store.

    To download it, go to their webpage

    Hmmm... Really, got a link to some info on that? Googled it and couldn't find any reputable info on it. I am pretty sure I read somewhere that FoxFi pulled the compatibility flag on the Rezound temporarily until they figure out why it doesn't work on the new ICS firmware because they think it should work properly. I would think that for VZW to block it now after allowing it for a long time and considering the recent legal decision regarding them charging for tethering, they would not even attempt to block it.

    That's actually a newer version than the one I have before it was pulled from market.

    Yes, search the Google play store and you will find a foxfi add-on app. The main purpose of this additional app being published is to explain to you and I that Sprint AT&T and Verizon are blocking foxfi from being installed by the Google play store, and to go to that website to download it.
