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.

I also got the message, but didn’t have any problem downloading the new version. A quick re-create of the hot spot and I was back online.

Day after day as I try to remember, I find my forgetter working better and better.
