    there is a 2 day trial free and a 9.99 App. Try the trial 1st but it should work. You DO NOT have to root your galaxy nexus. Mine is not rooted.

    however with the app I did have to install it like 3 times till it finally worked. But it indeed works 100%. Watched a few videos to try it out and I had no issues

    I can confirm this works. I am rooted but I agree i do not think it matters. I just typed this on my laptop using this app!

    I used it but it brings me here. It makes mes click on hotspot. Won't Verizon be able to track me then?

    I thought that too. But my assumption is it must rewrite the hotspot program to only use phone data. Kinda like unrooting a single program instead of the phone. That's my guess. Also from the review I read on the app no has been charged. I guess I'll wait till my bill and see what happens. I also don't think u can turn on hotspots without a hotspots data plan so the app must trick the phone. Just a guess

    You'll pay for an app that lets you steal service you're not paying for but you won't pay for the service itself? Irony.

    One time charge vs monthly fee. Kinda of a no brainer.

    Your really not stealing anything in my eyes you pay for the data you are using. How you choose to use the data is no one else's business but your own.

    Figured i would continue this thread as i'm having issues as well.

    I'm using android wifi tether 3.1-pre110 to tether my PC as we speak. I can get my ubuntu partition to connect, my xbox360 to connect (as a test, not for real usage), and my iPad to connect with no issues. For some reason i cannot get windows 7 ultimate to connect to the broadcast wifi hotspot i've created. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

    I have Windows 7 pro have no issues using the same setup. Make sure you don't have it set in your network settings as an unknown network as it will not let you access the internet if it is. Also really you had to say the "I" word in an android environment. Why not an android tab? Lol.
