    Ok Foxfi works with the Note 4, now my question is how do I disable the lock screen pin window, I was able to do it on my S4 with no problems, just enter the wrong lock screen pin more than 10 times and then just enter my Google accounts password, but when I try this on the Note 4 it tells me it will reformat my device, what gives.

    That's a setting.

    Why not just set a password rather than set pin & enter it wrong until it asks for a password?

    I don't want to set up any lock screen password or pin, I don't like to have a lock screen at all, when I turn on my phone I want it to go directly to my Home screen.

    I used to like slide to unlock, but now I have a VPN setup so I can remote in to work when I need to, so I have to keep the device more secure.

    Maybe there'll be a workaround for you soon.

    If you are not on an unlimited plan, then mobile hotspot is already built in and it is free. You don't pay for tethering any more unless you are still on unlimited.

    Maybe there is a block that was put out to stop Foxfi with those who have Unlimited plans. I am on Verizon and have the more everything plan. Foxfi is working for me. I do not use it as much since the whole family has smart phones now. I only use it when I have my laptop or tablet in a spot with no WiFi.
