Due to lockdowns through each phone system update, WiFi mode will only be allowed on a short list of compatible devices. As of April 2015, IN GENERAL,
---Verizon Samsung phones (S3/4/5, Note 2/3/4) , Verizon LG phones (G2/3) and Verizon Sony phones (Z3) are supported with all Android versions including Android 5.0/5.1.
---Verizon HTC phones (M7/8) will only work on Android 4.1 ~ 4.4.
---Verizon Motorola phones will only work on Android 4.3 or below.
---Straight Talk phones will only work if it uses Verizon and is one of the above.
---AT&T Samsung phones will only work on Android 4.2 or below.
---Other carriers/phones will only work if they still have Android 4.0 or below.
---For all other phones, use USB mode or Bluetooth mode instead. If you absolutely need a WiFi hotspot, see below for "WiFi Share".
*To get around lockdowns on WiFi mode FoxFi may prompt you to install a certificate on your phone, this will cause the Android system to enforce a screen lock and show a security message in notification. For more detail and steps to remove screen lock please visit http://pdanet.co/wifi.
*If you receive a message asking for a "password for credential strorage" this is due to a bug in the Android system. Please see steps to clear this message at http://pdanet.co/wifi
USB mode works on almost all Android phones. It allows connection from Windows PC or Mac. In addition, PdaNet comes with a "WiFi Share" feature that can further turn the Windows PC into a WiFi Hotspot so that you can connect other devices to it and share your phone's Internet connection.
*T-Mobile or MetroPCS users can only use USB mode with "Hide Tether Usage" enabled in PdaNet. This will break Netflix however.
*If your phone is not recognized by your computer after connecting USB, please see http://pdanet.co/driver
*Please treat Windows tablets (non RT) the same as Windows PC.
Bluetooth mode allows connection from Windows PC, Android tablets (excludes Android 4.4) or devices that supports Bluetooth DUN.
*A system bug in Android 4.4 for tablets will break Bluetooth mode, this is fixed in Android 5.0 or later.
*For Android tablets it is possible only the browser app will work in Bluetooth mode. That is because other apps may be looking for wifi or cell phone connection and not recognize the Bluetooth Internet.
*One way around the above two issues is to find a wifi hotspot to connect the tablet to at the same time (such wifi hotspot does not need to provide Internet access).
easywifi connects you automatically to free, high-quality Wi-Fi right where you need it. Get the best available connectivity at millions of the most popular locations nationwide, from big name retailers, airports, stadiums and hotels - right down to your favorite neighborhood coffee shops and restaurants. You’ll never need to worry about losing your data connection again.
NO MORE COMPLICATED LOG-INS
Set-up is quick and simple — then easywifi runs invisibly in the background on your Android device.
By automating access to millions of Wi-Fi hotspots, easywifi frees you from awkward log-in procedures, letting you just enjoy the connection you want, where you want it.
HOW IT WORKS
easywifi enhances Android’s native connection manager by identifying only the best available, high-quality hotspots and navigating the connection process for you. For example, many public hotspots require users to launch their device’s browser, find a registration page and tap to accept terms and conditions before they can get a Wi-Fi connection. But with easywifi you don’t need to get involved. Because our network is cloud-based and crowd-sourced, easywifi already knows how to log on. You’re connected before you even reach for your device.
MANAGE YOUR USAGE
A convenient data dashboard within the app lets you track both cellular and Wi-Fi data usage for better cost control. You can also see which of your apps uses the most data.
easywifi is designed to have minimal impact on battery life. Let the app manage your Wi-Fi radio so that it turns on automatically only when you need it.
