    I recently got an alert for updates on google play.one of the updates was Fox fi . I always read the what's new section in the update.to find that there will be a limit to use the wireless tether app . You can restart the app if you want to continue the free part of the app. it says anywhere between a few minutes to thirty. I ask why other then to get money for the development which i will strongly support because it is such a great app.on the other hand why now? Why not from the beginning have a trial version .so i didn't update and the app still works just fine. I am rooted and have a couple of back UPS of this app. If anyone updated b4 reading what it updated hit me up .i just want to know what you guys think about this update. And the price that is being ask for for the full version.thanks guys!!!

    I paid for it immeaditly. 7 dollars is a great price IMO for keeping my laptop connected to the internet to Skype my wife.

    HTC users should get it for half price since it only half works on them.

    I do the same 4saken and did not update it because I currently have no with it on my jb Razr M. When I am comfortable that it keeps working flawlessly, I will update and pay the $7 because it is well worth it and I encourage their development and support.

    I love the phone! Not much of a difference between ICS and JB. But I find one thing very irritating... for every program I have not chosen as a default (browsers, pic viewers, home launchers) instead of just hitting my choice and going directly to that program, I also am forced to select whether I want to choose that program &ldquo;always" or &ldquo;just once." Other than that, I'm good with it, lol!

    I would suggest Easy Tether. I've never had a problem with it.

    I don't use Fox-Fi very often but the fact it is now a paid app made me find a new tether.

    I agree, having to make that selection is irritating.

    I think they provide an outstanding service and deserve the nominal fee.

    I find it funny that anyone would quibble over a one time $7.00 fee to allow your device to be wirelessly tethered to you laptop or computer. Though, I guess it shouldn't surprise in a time where we complain about schools, yet don't want to pay taxes to support the schools. Want a responsive fire and police department, and don't want to pay taxes to support them.

    I paid $15 for PDAnet 3 years ago, and when I needed a new laptop (because the other shot craps), I paid $15 to have it installed there (changing phones is free). It works flawlessly, and I'm quite happy with the service. I also use FoxFi for the times I need to quickly get to something and don't feel like getting out the cord for PDAnet. Next time I need FoxFi, I will gladly pay the $7 for a service that has worked as advertised for me. Oftentimes, you get what you pay for.

    I found the foxfi.apk on another website and installed it manually. It's version 1.52.1 (not the latest of 1.95.2) so no requirement to pay $7......

    If you are already rooted then why not used the WiFi tether for root users in the Play Store, has always been and still is free and works better IMO. Or you could do the SQL hack and just have buy SQLite for $1.99 save yourself 5 bucks if you don't want to use Wifi Tether.

    I agree with Sydman. Just hack the mobile hotspot its super simple and is reliable because its Verizon's own rather than 3rd party. I don't understand why people root and use fox fi. Just my opinion though I would rather root and stick it back to the people sticking it to me with having to pay $100 a month and if I want a new phone having to pay full price.

    put foxfi free on the wifes maxx several months ago, and it would randomly drop the connection. Put it on the maxx i bought a week ago, and downloaded the free version with limitations... So, I bought the key, and since we are sharing a google play account, we both have full versions now... and it is working flawlessly... hitting a server near chicago on speedtest, DL=13.86Mb, UL=2.36Mb... and since we are both grandfathered in on the unlimited data... I am surprised our phones havent burst into flame yet! 8.5Gb this month alone! :yeahbaby01: :D
