Hi gs3 owners. Can you tell me if foxfi works on the gs3?
Works great on mine, but another user reported it did not work for her. I'm on CleanRom 2.5 btw which is a G7 based rom.
I'm a little confused on why FoxFi is needed on the S3 vs the Hot Spot already on the phone
I use foxfi because I'm on unlimited data and tethering is not allowed for me, so I don't dare use the built in app...just in case.
So if you're on a share plan you can use the built in Hot Spot (cuz your using your data on your plan) vs paying the $20 per month extra if your on unlimited?
Yup. I think if Big Red catches you tethering they auto add the tether plan to your account and/or will cancel your account if you don't sign a new tiered data contract. Either way for how little I actually use it, I figure Foxfi is safer.
It does not work on my stock rooted GS3. SVTP does, but costs $15.
Works on my stock GS3.
Does not work on my stock S3, and it did not work on my Maxx either, once I updated to ICS
It works for me on S3 and works for my daughter on the Maxx. A couple times it did fail to initiate but a restart fixed it.
It's strange how it works for some, and not for others. This is from the FoxFi site: "*Support for the new Galaxy S3 and the new ICS update for Epic Touch are being worked on. Should be compatible soon in a future update."
It works great on all three of our GS3.
