    FoxFi (Beta) 1.22 for Android - Download.comearch "Foxfi" on the Marketplace.

    Verizon has an app pre-loaded on many phones but this one is free.

    Heard that it currently doesn't work on HTC phones but works like a charm on my RAZR.

    Try turning wi-fi off on your phone. Doing that got rid of the message on my phone. The App works great!!

    I downloaded, tested and works. I would suspect Verizon may attempt to block this app in the market in the future so I got it now.

    No ideas from me except the usual try reboot, check foxfi settings, make sure your regular wifi is off and other like things.

    Reset your phone. Apparently there's a glitch on it. Or uninstall and install. It works great on my nexus. Just another reason to stay stock

    I was going to ask a similar question. But the one pre installed Verizon can track and charge you an extra 30 a month. But with this, u can tether for free and Verizon doesn't know!

    Just curious, what keeps Verizon from knowing? If not rooted this app can't change the build prop to mask the tethering ...

    I know a lot of you will probably get a good laugh out of this but I'm new to all of this technical talk. I'll ask anyway. What is wireless tethering? And the big question; what good does it do to root your phone? What is rooting? Thanks in advance. Richard

    Tethering is when you have one device connected to the internet with another device connected to it "sharing" its internet. Wireless tethering basically removes the wire from the equation using wifi to connect to the host.

    Having a Wireless tether app on your phone (4g a plus) allows the phone to become a host using your data plan to connect other devices (laptops, gaming systems etc..) while out and about. Also known as a "hotspot"

    Thanks A Million

    I really appreciate you explaining tethering to me. Like I said, I'm new to all of this. I'm 55 and disabled. Well, I bought a Droid X from a friend. Love at first site. An elderly lady hadn't had it but 2 months. Looked perfect. I was coming from a BB Curve so I immediately fell in love with the X, the size, the screen, everything. I thought, if this was 4G, I'd be set for life. So I saved up enough to get a Bionic off of craigslist. The reviews on it weren't that good but I thought, ahh, these people just don't know what they're doing. I had it activated and after about a week, I was So sick that I'd bought it. Just crazy stuff on it's own. The I got the update and haven't had one glitch. It's got all I need plus plenty more. Extended use battery,. I wouldn't trade it for Any other phone. Sorry so long. Thanks again, Richard
