Default Foxfi Stopped working after latest update... A simple fix

i have paid for the foxfi wifi tethering app.

It was working fine before the latest update.

Now the phone is erroring out and is prompting me to click on a "go to my verizon mobile" or "call customer service button".

all you have to do is click on "My verizon mobile" when prompted and then just back out of the my v mobile app and the tethering works fine.

And no, i have accidently signed up with a tethering plan.. i double checked to see if it did.

Hopefully this helps a fellow paid foxfi user.

If your plan is capped at a data limit you WILL be able to use it. If not VZW would be in a lot of trouble. They got fined for this before. However those of us on an unlimited plan are blocked access to it.
HTC Incredible (AMOLED) rooted S-off
HTC Rezound unlocked & rooted
Unlocked MDK Rooted Galaxy S4

If it ain't broke....fiddle with it to try to make it better.

When I turn on the wifi hotspot thru the june fabrics app, it gives me the error message but I just hit the home button and move on. The hotspot works just fine.

This worked for me with three of the free toggles. Hit home and warning goes away but hot-spot stays on
