    Foxfi banned?

    I have tried to install the foxfi app recently on the warp. From the handset, foxfi does not even appear after doing a search in the play store. On a PC, the foxfi app comes up as normal. So i thought I'd try to send it from the My Apps in the play store. My devices are listed but the Warp is greyed out and upon clicking on it I get a "app not supported your carrier" message. Anyone else experience this? Is there a workaround?

    It appears that Sprint has banned Foxfi when trying to download it on one of their phones - using the Play Store, however there is a workaround. Check this out for more info.

    Best case scenario so far: a simple battery pull re-enables your devices data service.
    Worst case experience (so far): must do a factory data reset to clear the device data issue after foxfi fails.

    with non-rooted devices.

    I never could get it to work on the warp. Worked fine on the transform ultra.

    It seems it doesn't work on the transform ultra with the new 2.3.6 firmware.
