Default [Q] Tethering Unrooted Rezound to Nexus 7 using wifi hotspot

First off, my rezound is NOT rooted. I use Foxfi on it and can tether using the bluetooth option to my nexus 7, but a lot of the applications don't recognize it as an actual internet connection (example: i can browse around the play store but when i try to download an app it just gets stuck at waiting for network.) Before the ICS update Foxfi wouldn't even let me turn on the WiFi hotspot function. After the ICS update it will now turn on the WiFi hotspot but my nexus 7 will not connect to it. It just gets stuck at "acquiring IP address" and will not go passed that.

tl;dr if someone can help me use my rezounds wifi hotspot to tether to my N7 without having to root i would greatly appreciate it.

What is stopping you from root? I wouldn't even have a smartphone if I couldn't root it. That said, I believe there are decent rootless tether apps.

For one, I don't have a computer to root with and I really just don't want to go through the hassle or void my warranty. I've tried a lot of apps but none of them seem to let anything connect to the hotspot. Seems like it's something internal blocking it. I should probably have mentioned that I am on a grandfathered unlimited plan. Do you know of any hotspot tether apps I could try that might work?

Maybe try clock work mod. I don't know though because I have root.
Edit
I don't actually have a clue, it is possible there isn't a good rootless tether app that doesn't require usb

Don't want to root your phone? You'll have to pay to activate Verizon's built in wifi tether most likely.
