    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.

    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."
