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?
