Default (unrooted) How do you Tether?

I used foxfi before, but with Jellybean, its a no go. Is there an alternative for us non-rooted Note 2 users?

Is there a charge other than the $.99 from Verizon for using this?

Though, I do have a free version which I assume has a time out limitation. Btw, anybody knows what is a timeout with Foxfi on a free version? Is it fixed or variable?

Im stuck on a plan, but i have been passing my phones down to my wife, so she still has the unlimited plan...with that said she just got the JB update on the S3 and I was using the FoxFi free and it works great. For Christmas we got a few Tablets and the free version only allowed me to used up to 15mb, i didnt notice a time limit though, so im guessing which ever comes first?!?!? Either way i purchased the upgrade for $6.00 and thne family was able to stream Netflix from it...two movies! I know im talking about the S3, but I figured I throw my expirence of FoxFi out ya.

Good Luck!
