Q: I have been using FoxFi for about a year. Yesterday when I tried activating the hotspot I got a message that I need to download PDANet+. When I tried to do so the download was unsuccessful. I tried going directly to the PDANet website to download and still was unable to do so. Is Verizon blocking the download? I have unlimited data and loved the app, but looks like Verizon may have put a stop to it.
A: We also got that message about needing to upgrade to PDANet+. We did the upgrade, then had to re-create our hotspot. It is working fine for us. I would recommend just trying it again. Maybe UNinstall your current app for FoxFi or PDANet, then go to you Play Store and get PDANet+(FoxFi)
Let us know.
