    hey has any one found a successful way to tether this phones mobile data (im rooted) i know this phone has a native tether feature but Virgin wants 15 a month more for that and i think thats insane (especially when i was doing it on my other phone with wireless tether app)

    FoxFi! Works fantastic! Can't get it in Market anymore but you can from their site. Pro key is available in Market. Hands down easiest to use tether app!

    It did work for me but I only tested it for about three minutes. Went to Facebook, Google, and YouTube. I'll check it out more. I don't really need tether so I kinda forget about it. I like to have it for when an emergency arises like storm power outage and laptop or something

    I tried the latest foxfi and it did not work. It was able to turn on the hotspot and i could see the hotspot with my laptop but when it came to connecting to the hotspot, my laptop could not connect, it would just stay there lagging.

    Sorry for the delayed reply. Managed to achieve internet access but it is a hit and miss. I have to mess with it some to get it to work each time. Last night, I encountered the "Limited Connectivity" notification. I have been able to solve it by deleting the hotspot name profile from the laptop and creating a new connection in wireless settings. It seems to take a few tries. I have also had to rename the SSID in the FoxFi app once or twice.

    Put PDA net on the device you want to tether and foxfi on the phone , then tether using blue tooth. Worked for me on the nexus 7

    I can also confirm Wifi Tether for Root Users works. It works very nicely I might add. :D

    Interesting... I have tried several apps and I always get some sort of error like "failed to set ad hoc mode." I am rooted btw.

    Be sure to select "Epic Touch 4G" under device profiles in the Wifi Tether for Root Users app.
