Best no root hot spot apps
 
I have a Samsung nexus. I'm not paying the monthly payment for mobile hot spot. I don'tmind paying for tthe one time pay for app. But not a monthly fee. I would b prefer no root as of now. I'm looking for specifically the fastest one. I'm using foxfi pro now and I can'teven dl the new bborderlands expansion

I used to use PDAnet when i had my old droid x. I think the problem now is even when you have unlimited data, they're starting to cap people when you hit a certian usage level, only of my friends showed me a text he got after he hit 5gigs, said to the effect that he hit a usage level and was limited on speed, and when i say limited on speed, it droped to like MAYBE 1kbs at the fastest.

I'm not even sure if the app is avalible anymore. Also it wasn't so much of a hotspot than it was a tethering service for one computer.

And just a rant, that mobile hotspot is the biggest rip off since the coming of limited data usage for the same price as unlimited. why the hell would i want to pay 30 bucks a month for unlimtied data use on my phone which uses way less than a computer, then come back and spend another 40 bucks just for 2gigs of data for computer usage that uses way more data.

I have unlimited data grandfathered in. For Verizon. I just want the fastest hot spot app

Foxfi is the current popular app. No root and runs well

Keebler 11-21-2012 01:21 PM

But is it the fastest or are they all the same. Cause I'm angry I can't get the borderlands dlc to complete

Could it be something else I'm doing wrong?

What are you using now?

Keebler 11-21-2012 02:27 PM

Foxfi paid for

foxfi just started failing me. It was fine when it was free... They recently had an update to force you to pay for it.

Now it doesn't work at all on my phone. Going to try out the PDAnet

Keebler 11-21-2012 02:38 PM

I saw that one. I'm still inside the 15 days before I can get my money back so let me know

Painthappy 11-21-2012 02:57 PM

Well, PDAnet needs foxfi.

After some research, I found the 1.91 version of foxfi (free) and before the updates that made it not work. Downloaded it and put it on my phone. Now foxfi works just fine.

Will PM the download link if anyone needs it.
