FoxFi is Back in Business for Verizon Unlimited Users!


Over the weekend, Droid Life reported that FoxFi had stopped working for Verizon users with the unlimited data plan. FoxFi has long been the best option for tethering if you have unlimited data and do not want to root your phone. Both Shane and I were able to confirm this downtime, and everyone was generally pretty sad about it. This came at a terrible time since Verizon is planning to raise Unlimited Data Plan rates by $20 per month as well.

Today we’re happy to report that FoxFi appears to be good to go again on Verizon. Many users have posted on Google Play that they are up and running again, and I have confirmed this on my own Verizon phones. Hopefully Verizon doesn’t try to get anymore ideas about removing this excellent tethering option in the future. Was anyone left out in the cold for tethering while FoxFi was down?

    Like many others, the wireless tethering stopped working for me over the weekend. I simply switched over to the USB tethering feature of FoxFi and was back up in less than five minutes.

"I am currently a researcher and Adjunct Professor at Arizona State University and Grand Canyon University. I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
