    So I just tried to use foxfi...

    First off, I don't tether often and when I do, I don't use crazy amounts of data



    I fired up foxfi on my razr HD at my girlfriend's house because her internet wasn't working. A window popped up on the foxfi screen that said "checking subscription status" then it kicked me to screen that said that there was some kind of error in my subscription and gave me two number to call, business and consumer. I could only assume they were Verizon numbers, so I googled one and sure enough, Verizon must have blocked my wifi tether.



    anyone else running into this?

    Edit: I should add that I'm on the "OTA" jelly bean leak

    From my experience its been disabled for jellybean, Bluetooth DUN seems to work for the majority of apps though with the notable exception of gmail.

    I believe Foxfi no longer works for wifi on any phone running JB.

    Lol so many if these threads popping up. It says right on the foxfi site that it will not work on the HD with JB.

    FoxFi Devices Says that JB is not yet supported, not sure why.

    If you are rooted, this should work: android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users - Google Project Hosting

    what if im not rooted?

    I noticed there were more choices for rooted users. But I dont plan on rooting just for this.
    I saw some other apps but some of the reviews just said that they used you phone built in hotspot feature which I dont want to pay for.

    Thanks

    As far as I know, FoxFi was the only non root true wireless tether app out there.
