    I have upgraded my operating system to 2.2, downloaded Foxfi and tried to use it as a personal hotspot. It seems to come up alright but when you try to connect to it from another device it says the internet is not found. On my windows 7 laptop it says something about an invalid IP address and shows 'limited access' on the task bar.

    I am surprised there is so little information regarding this problem using a google search.

    I have tried everything I have found so far including rebooting the phone and adding 192.168.1.1 to the settings/wifi/advanced/gateway. I wonder if I check 'static IP' and enter my Ip address if that will help.

    I read a lot of postive results with this unrooted app and am a little frustrated with not being able to get it to work.

    I also wonder if Cspire has blocked it somehow.

    Thanks for your thoughts

    it is my understanding that Cspire is not allowing Wifi/hotspot to be accessed. i have tried to root my phone and bricked it b/c of them being a regional carrier and there being no files avail. for the "rooting" process to achive the ability to use that option. i have been on the phone with their techs even. they have not said if they will EVER let us have mobile hotspot capabilities. hope this helps.

    I got the idea to do it from a friend that is on Cspire but has an Iphone. When I asked him about it this was his response.

    "Yeah I went to Settings, network, then turned hot spot on... After that personal hotspot appears in your settings menu. Once you do that you can either use it as a wireless hotspot or tethered with you USB cable."

    At no additional cost?

    "On my plan it is not. I have unlimited data. "
