======(New)WiFi Direct Hotspot=======
This new WiFi Direct feature in PdaNet 5 allows you to connect WiFi mode from computers or tablets. However unlike the old WiFi Hotspot, it will require you to either install PdaNet on the connecting computers/tablets or set up proxy settings. Use this feature if you are no longer able to turn on WiFi Hotspot, or if your WiFi Hotspot usage is being metered when you already have an unlimited data plan.
Android 7.0 (Nougat) or later no longer allows the old WiFi Hotspot mode even for Verizon phones. Please refer to PdaNet instead for alternative solutions.
Due to lockdowns through each phone system update, the old WiFi mode will only be allowed on a short list of compatible devices. As of 11/2016, IN GENERAL:
—Android 7.0 (Nougat) or later no longer allows WiFi mode even for Verizon phones.
—Verizon Samsung phones (S3/4/5/6/7/Edge, Note 2/3/4/5 etc.) , Verizon LG phones (V10, G2/3/4/5 etc.) and Verizon Sony phones (Z2/Z3) are supported by Android versions up to Android 6.0/6.1.
—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.
—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.
—Straight Talk phones will only work if it uses Verizon and are compatible with the above.
—For all other phones, use USB mode or Bluetooth mode instead.
*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 pdanet.co/wifi
Free edition will turn off after timed usage limit but you can turned it back on, otherwise it is same as full version.
Add a new "WiFi Direct Hotspot" feature in PdaNet to connect computers and tablets if existing Hotspot feature does not work.

I have an old Samsung Ace Q and it works as a hotspot perfectly, don’t all cell phones have that capability?
No, they do not. A Samsung Intercept or Epic does the job wonderfully but a Note does not.

Will any version of FOXFI work with the new Samsung Galaxy S4?
Yes, I have the S4 (AT&T) and it works great. Once you click on “activate wifi hotspot”, a mssg will pop up “to enable mobile hotspot, go to att.com etc”. Ignore this message and do NOT click on ok. Just push the home button to back out of foxfi and it should work fine.

Use router to make a hub between devices.

I’ll recommend you to keep using your LG phone with this app.
Because People are complaining now about this app.(You are luck it’s working for you).

I have the HTC one x and at&t. I can download the app but I can’t install and one can help me her
Well… i am not sure that at&t is allowing you to install apk application directly .
FoxFI works great in my LG Optimus V
however it turns off after 5 or 10 minutes of using because it is the free version. The problem here is that it eats up my battery really fast and discharges even when my phone is connected to the charger.
The battery and the phone itself turns really hot.
Does anyone have the same problem as me?
I just started using this app last night with my Droid 4 and Kindle Fire HD. But it made me extremely nervous because the phone got so damn hot!! So I cut the session short. I’ll try it again tonight and hope that the overheating was a one-time thing.
Yes, i have the same problem. My android got so hot, it almost fried. My Son uses my foxfi late at night and sometimes he will forget to tell me its still on and when i wake up, the screen freezes up so bad I have to remove the battery and allow it to cool off before recharging it.
