    As the title says, my foxfi just updated and it says it now works with the razr and other Motorola phones. Time to update! =)

    What is the "data restriction" on the free version of Foxfi? Is it time related as well as total data related? I use relatively little data but need to connect for a couple of hours at a time. If I wanted the paid version I would just pay vzw.

    Verizon $20. a month. Foxfi $7.99 one time charge. I have been using it since it came out and it's worth every penny. I have not updated to JB yet because of Foxfi, but I will now. Great news to have Foxfi back with JB.

    But after spending the 8 bucks vzw could block or update in a month so 8 bucks out the window.

    Works! :icon_ lala:DancingNexus
    However - because of "certificate" authorizations in the setup process, my initial screen now locks and I have to manually unlock my phone. I tried to turn it off in Settings/Security but no such luck. When I choose to disable I see that it says: "Disabled by administrator, encryption policy or credential storage"

    Mine is the same but I think that the screen lock must be on for foxfi to work. To shut off the screen lock I believe you have to go to settings, security and screen lock, clear credentials to remove the certificate

    Whelp - I did some of that - deleted the "User" certificate (not "all" as there is a slider on upper screen under credentials). Re-started foxfi and walked me through another authentication. Noticed there was a message about choosing "pattern" for security instead of PIN. Oops. That's were I eff'd up. Anyway, it didn't change anything. Rebooted. Nothing. I think I might have to do a fresh install. UGH. Double UGH. more time more time more time...

    I have used Foxfi for a year. Verizon @ $20. a month = $240. Foxfi @ $8. total = a net savings of $$232. A chance worth taking for me. I am already paying Verizon for the data, why should I pay again to use it?

    I would think of the Foxfi charge of $8.00 as an expense that's cheaper than eating out for one lunch.
    If it works for you... great.
    If it don't... your only out $8.

    (The price is equivalent to a burger,fries and malt at McDonalds.)

    Either way let us know the outcome.

    It save nothing if it doesn't work. If I ordered a meal at McDonald's (God forbid!) and the power goes out I get my $ back even though a power outage isn't their fault. Spend 8 bucks for foxfi (used to be free full service) and vzw blocks it or it doesnt work I'm out 8 bucks! Since you can turn vzw wifi on and off a day a a time losing 8 bucks is no savings in my book. If foxfi gave 1 year. money back it works or else no excuses warranty THEN it would be a great deal.

    Use the free version then, this is ludacris to whine about a $8 app that otherwise functions free. In fact use the free version if you are that cheap.
    If you want it completely free, root your phone and use wifi tether.

    Geez some people $8.00, really?

    Get over yourself.

    Some want free to work perfectly and remain free.....:icon_eek:

    Seeing how much trouble this is still causing, glad I rooted and used the Mueller app. Took all of about 5 minutes for everything.

    It isn't "whining". If you pay 8 bucks for the year and it either never works or stops working in less than a year it is perfectly fair to expect some sort of refund. (beyond the generous 15 minutes you get to try it out)

    If it works for one month then you are saving more than the app costs(rather than paying Verizon $20). Perhaps the developer likes making money for making/keeping the app up to date. That greedy son of a gun!

    That's interesting. I set mine up originally with a PIN and then after realizing it would be on my home screen unlock as well, went into settings and changed it to "pattern". It worked fine with no reboot required. Now it just requires the pattern unlock on the home screen, but not for Foxfi and no PIN unlock at all.

    Mine is like yours. I would like to get rid of the screen lock and go back to the slide to unlock.
    Any suggestions?
