Great but doesn't work on ST phone Used this app to flawlessly hotspot my Verizon s4 that's switched to straight talk. It was so good my son could get full wifi signal from 100 feet away. I bought a s7 through straight talk and Fox fi won't work with it. ST disabled the hotspot in the settings and while foxfi will let you enable hotspot, something from ST is preventing ip address from being distributed so any phone trying to connect will never fully connect. Besides that, it's an amazing app for phones not sold by straight talk.
Love it I love this app! We do not have internet where I live so this is the only way I can get my devices online and they are AWESOME! If you need need or want a wifi hot spot then this is the app for you. If there is ever a problem they get on it right away to fix it. In the 10 yrs i have had this app there has only been 5 times that it went down for a few days (and that is because the cellphone company was trying to block it) but they fixed it and i was up and running again.Thank you FoxFi for a amazing service.
Confirm works s7 I have verzion old unlimited package and this app works great with it. Have been a payed member of foxfi since 2012 so I don't have to deal with short cut off times, and I can set type and strength of wifi passwords. Area im at right now I have a 40 mbps down and 60 up with verzion and app is handling 2 labtops, wifes phone and xbox. No problems. That said, do research before you buy. Not all phones work and not all providers have had work arounds made. So ya, mine works so I love FoxFi.
I would give it a better review if only it worked on newer devices. I own a turbo 2 phone, and the first time I needed to use this app, it simply notified me that this app won't work with newer devices unless I have a mobile hotspot plan. I had purchased this app when I owned an older device (Droid Bionic) and whenever I transferred all my apps to my new device it didn't work. So if there's any way to get it working again on newer devices, please notify me. But until then, two stars.
Love It I have used this app for the last three years approximately, and it is great. Once or twice my carrier had blocked the app from working but in a day or two it's back up and working. I use this app at least 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. I connect with my tablet and stream Iheart radio, Netflix, Hulu, and Crackle. Works great!!!!!I have no idea what I would do with out this app. I would give ten stars if I could.
Finally figured it out! Screen dimmer takes it out! It took almost 2 years but the marshmallow release on my S5 complained about a third party screen dimmer, well, after turning it off, everything works as its supposed to! Oddly, that screen dimmer screws with eBay too. Check it out! Ap guys, you should make a release to alert users to look for that! 5 stars!
