DO NOT UPDATE YOUR ANDROID. This app works like a champ, the only problem is when you update your Android system, Developers will try to fix it but most of Android updates will patch the only way this app has to have access to your internet. This will work if your Android version isn't as new (which is hard now). I have a an extra phone that I keep around for long trips so I can keep my passengers entertained with this app without paying a carrier for a service that should be included with my phone service.
Works perfectly on my samsung s4 running Android 4.4.2 I followed foxfi's screen by screen instructions including adding a security security exception and everything works. The app seems to leverage Verizon's hot spot app by proxy in a way that Verizon does not know. I'm on a prepaid plan and get 4G WiFi tethering at full speed. I think the trick is following all the instructions as prompted. I'm using the paid version.
Works Awesome and as advertised! Thank you! This app does everything it says it does. Worth paying for full version as this developer deserves our support. Keep it coming with apps like this. There are so many apps in the play store that claim to do things and don't do anything besides give you advertising banners and spam you.. but this app Is 100% legit. I installed it on all my devices and use it regularly as a USB hot spot together with pdanet on my laptop and I get great speeds (T-Mobile LTE network). Works so well I replaced my home internet
I loved this until today. Worked like a dream, have had it for several months now. Unfortunately as of 11/20/2015 around 10-11am EST the app no longer let's me Hotspot. I've seen reports that the app still works via Bluetooth and direct teether, but not to happy with installing additional software. To my knowledge this is a issue of. VERIZON only. Please fix this Devs
Best App Ever - to go with my unlimited data. I now have a Samsung S5 Galaxy and have not had a single problem using since day one. I got the S5 for free and I would have returned just to keep using this app. I use 90-300GB of data a month and Foxfi has always worked. I wait to update my phone just to make sure it works first. They do a wonderful job keeping up with OS changes. Have used for over 2 years on Droid 4 and now on the S5 for 5 months without any problems. I got S5 right away and Foxfi worked. It was so worth the one time cheap as hell fee.
Great app Have being using for several years now and had been flawless. Note II and galaxy S3 stopped working with Verizon's new update... Please fix great app. Update Upgraded to Samsung Note II and have used FoxFi without any issues. Updated to KitKat on 5/13/2014 and figured I would be losing a great app, but it updated without any problems. The first time it did give a Verizon data message but after that it's been working great.
12/11/2012: If you have purchased and are still unable to either install or unlock FoxFi/PdaNet+ please select contact developer in your order receipt email. We will help you unlock the full version on our end since Play Store issues do happen.
8/2/2013: You will not be sent a serial code after your purchase because you don't need it. Just keep this key app installed on your phone! It will unlock both FoxFi and PdaNet.
