    Tethering

    I have a nexus galaxy with Verizon. Can I use this as a mobil hotspot for the 7. I have activated this feature on my phone but the 7 will not hook up yet??

    Forgot to put in the key from my phone..All is well tethering works, of course for $30.00 per month it should. This is a month by month from Verizon so just trying it out, probably cancel in a few weeks..
    I plan on using the 7 on my BMW motorcycle for the GPS navigation when I go on long trips..

    I opted instead to get a mobile WiFi device. I keep it in a belt clip-on case on my belt and I can use my tablet on-line and my laptop at the same time, plus several other devices. I got away from the "smart phone" craze a year ago and don't miss it at all. The screen was just too small for my aged eyes to deal with. I prefer the Nexus 7 for all my internet. Each to his own, but I love the tablet over the smart phones.

    I got tired of paying Verizon $20.00 a month so I installed PdaNet Tablet on my Nexus 7 and FoxFi on my phone. I use bluetooth to tether them together, and I get better speeds than I did using the built in wifi hotspot. Cancelled the Verizon tether service. Some phones support wifi, but mine is a little older so I had to use the bluetooth connection.

    There is a new FCC ruling that prohibits carriers, VZ specifically from charging a fee for tethering for accounts with unlimited data. Google it. Probably why big red is so fired up to get people on shared, limited data plans.

    On a new note, having to use bluetooth turned out to be a good thing. The bluetooth connection uses a lot less power than the wi-fi hotspot, and my battery lasts a lot longer than it used to!

    Can you use a bluetooth connection with an iphone through Sprint? I'm new to the "tethering" or sharing internet with a tablet concept as I just ordered my first tablet today... Looking forward to getting my Nexus!

    I'm very aware of the ruling on LIMITED accounts, but all I've found allows not only requiring the addition of a tethering option on unlimited with 3G equipment. Can you guide this dummy ... it's be nice to save that $20/month.

    I agree, it is nice to save $240 a year. As I stated in my post above, I use PdaNet on my N7 and FoxFi on my android phone. Both apps are available for free in the Play store and work great. Easy to set up, uses bluetooth for the tether, which uses less power so the charge on the phone lasts much longer. You start the FoxFi app on the phone, then start the PdaNet on the Nexus and pair the two.

    I dropped my tether plan with Verizon over a month ago, and I have had no problems.
