    Good morning
    If I purchased a laptop or tablet ( not sure what I should purchase ) could I use my Motorola Droid to get an Internet connection for whichever device I purchase.
    Still learning, need simple steps
    Thanking you in advance

    Yes with FoxFi app, it let's your razor/maxx be a wifi hotspot. Very fast too, 20MBPS + on 4G. Five times faster than my home DSL wifi.

    Edit: Oh, forgot I was on the Droid forum. Not sure if Foxfi available for this platform, I know it works great on the razor/maxx. But I did use Easytether on my D1 via usb to my PC. Worked great but not nearly as fast.

    I used PDAnet to USB tether my OG Droid. Free Foxfi hotspot is awesome on the Bionic

    I have foxfi, works great! Connects thru bluetooth. Klink works well also.

    I upgraded three weeks ago from the D1 to the maxx and haven't looked back. Paid $269 for it pre $30 upgrade fee. But now it's available for $199 + $30 upgrade fee. Same price as the razor! I'm realy happy with the maxx, love the big screen, battery life, and speed. But still waiting for 4g in my area. When I do I'll be cancelling my DSL subscription and use Foxfi at home for my PC internet connection. Check out the razor/maxx forum for more info.

    Thanks, I will check it out. I was thinking if I renew my unlimited data plan now, maybe I will be grandfathered in before they discontinued the unlimited data. FYI
    I also get 22 % off because I work for a Co. that qualifies for the discount
    Everyone doesn't know about that.
