    Are you using the same phone now that you used before with foxfi? Has there been an OS update, ice cream sandwich/kitkat, etc? I think after one of the updates, foxfi would only work if you use a lock screen on your phone, either PIN or the pattern. I'm not the most knowledgeable on the matter, but check that out, if you don't currently use a lock screen. Phone power down and reset of course too after that.
