I currently use Foxfi and PDAnet hotspot application on my Droid Razr and my HTC DNA and it works great. I am grandfathered in with unlimited data so it allows me to use Netflix, YouTube and Pandora with my tablet with no problem. I currently user 30+ gigabytes a month on my smartphone.The app did not work with Jellybean but had a update which fixed the issue.
I use the data widget on my Droid Bionic not because I need to monitor my data (I have unlimited data) but to understand what my clients would experience using the widget. What I notice is the widget does not update itself anymore, you must press the widget to get your correct usage details. This was not so until the recent updates. Before the update the widget would tell you your data usage just by looking at it but now you have to press the widget and the widget logs itself into your myverizon account and gives you your current usage including minutes, data, text and billing information.
So remember you must press the widget to get updated usage information and this will work on all plans including the new shared data plans.
I have been using an application called Foxfi from the Google Play store for my hotspot. It is a free application and does not require any technical background to use. The app is very simple to use and works great. I also pay for the Verizon hotspots feature so I could test the performance of both and it seems I get better service from the free application Foxfi. Read the ruling by the FCC
Verizon Wireless response.” We still offer Mobile Broadband Connect, and the fee applies to customers using unlimited data plans. If a usage-based customer wants to subscribe, or continue to subscribe, to Mobile Broadband Connect, they can do so. They get both a high-quality robust tethering app and additional data allowances. On the other hand, a usage-based customer that wishes to tether other devices but does not wish to subscribe to Mobile Broadband Connect can cancel the service, purchase or obtain a third-party tethering application, and simply pay for the additional data usage”.

I just got an interesting call from Blackberry support they wanted to inform me of the new updates. I don’t use a Blackberry currently so I was a little confused why the called me and it was because I have written a few post about Blackberry in the past. I told the representative that I did buy a Blackberry Playbook recently and wanted to know about the update that is coming out and if it will bring the Android Market to the Playbook. I was told yes it will have the ability to use Android application but not all the applications at the beginning. Each application has to go through a approval with Blackberry before being allowed on the Blackberry Playbook. I ask about the camera on the Playbook because I was very upset to find out that the only video conference application was from Playbook to Playbook only. I was hoping Skype would work with the new update but it will not at the beginning until Microsoft which owns Skype and Blackberry work out the details. The Blackberry representative did tell me he uses Real Portal to Video chat with someone using a Apple iPad now.
The Blackberry Bold and the Torch will get an update that will allow Near Field Communications, Wifi calling and Mobile Hotspot capabilities. This update will first be available for Verizon Wireless and Sprint Blackberry devices.
