The proverbial writing was on the wall. The application that granted subscription free wifi tethering on unrooted devices has finally stopped working on Verizon devices. I had heard rumblings of this starting a few days ago when some of you started to tell me that foxfi was no longer working on your devices, but I had not had the chance to test this out on my own. Of course today I was on the road and actually needed it and it is true, foxfi is no longer working on Verizon devices. I tried on a few devices and couldn't get it to work on any devices. None of my devices received an update from Verizon so as far as I know they have not taken measures to stop it device side. There has been no mention from either Verizon or FoxFi on this. It isn't clear if Verizon has issued a cease and desist or if they have simply blocked the tethering traffic on their side. Hopefully it has just been blocked and FoxFi can come up with another work around. More than a year ago Verizon put the brakes on FoxFi disabling its methods. FoxFi pretty quickly released an update to circumvent Verizon's block. The update used some VPN trickery to make it work once more. Maybe they can come up with a similar work around. Unfortunately this may be the end of wifi tethering for unlimited data users on Verizon. This on top of the $20 price hike could send the last few remaining unlimited users running for the hills. For now it looks like you will have to figure out a way to root your device and hack it to get wifi tethering working. This is increasingly difficult on Verizon as rooting methods are becoming pretty scarce.
