PdaNet+

PdaNet+


PdaNet+ now contains both PdaNet (USB or Bluetooth mode) and FoxFi (WiFi mode). You can now share your cell phone's Internet connection with your computers or tablets through either USB, Bluetooth or even WiFi Hotspot on some phone models. Most importantly it does not require the extra tether plan (mobile hotspot plan) from your carrier or rooting your Android phone.

Free edition of PdaNet+ will require you to restart after some usage, otherwise it is same as full version.

Sprint and AT&T may not allow you to install our app from Play Store, please install the apk file directly from http://pdanet.co/android, or install on the computer side from http://pdanet.co/a

======USB Mode=========
USB mode works on almost all Android phones. It allows connection from Windows PC or Mac. In addition, PdaNet comes with a "WiFi Share" feature that can further turn the Windows PC into a WiFi Hotspot so that you can connect other devices to it and share your phone's Internet connection.

*T-Mobile or MetroPCS users can only use USB mode with "Hide Tether Usage" enabled in PdaNet. This will break Netflix however.
*If your phone is not recognized by your computer after connecting USB, please see http://pdanet.co/driver
*Please treat Windows tablets (non RT) the same as Windows PC.

======Bluetooth Mode======
Bluetooth mode allows connection from Windows PC, Android tablets (excludes Android 4.4) or devices that supports Bluetooth DUN.

*A system bug in Android 4.4 for tablets will break Bluetooth mode, this is fixed in Android 5.0 or later.
*For Android tablets it is possible only the browser app will work in Bluetooth mode. That is because other apps may be looking for wifi or cell phone connection and not recognize the Bluetooth Internet.
*One way around the above two issues is to find a wifi hotspot to connect the tablet to at the same time (such wifi hotspot does not need to provide Internet access).

======WiFi Mode==========
Due to lockdowns through each phone system update, WiFi mode will only be allowed on a short list of compatible devices. As of April 2015, IN GENERAL:
---Verizon Samsung phones (S3/4/5, Note 2/3/4) , Verizon LG phones (G2/3) and Verizon Sony phones (Z3) are supported by all Android versions including Android 5.0/5.1.
---Verizon HTC phones (M7/8) will only work on Android 4.1 ~ 4.4.
---Verizon Motorola phones will only work on Android 4.3 or below.
---AT&T Samsung phones will only work on Android 4.2 or below.
---Other carriers/phones will only work if they still have Android 4.0 or below.
---Straight Talk phones will only work if it uses Verizon and are compatible with the above.
---For all other phones, use USB mode or Bluetooth mode instead.

*To get around lockdowns on WiFi mode FoxFi may prompt you to install a certificate on your phone, this will cause the Android system to enforce a screen lock and show a security message in notification. For more detail and steps to remove screen lock please visit http://pdanet.co/wifi.
*If you receive a message asking for a "password for credential strorage" this is due to a bug in the Android system. Please see steps to clear this message at http://pdanet.co/wifi

UPDATE NOTE: 08/01/15 Does anyone know if this App is still being developed? I have not seen an App or PC update version in a long time. Using an S5 with version 5.1.1 Lollipop, on (recently updated to) Win10 on a TMoble plan, now unable to use WiFi Share (Beta). Have not been able to use PDAnet tethering for NetFlix on PC at anytime and more recently before cutting over to Win10 have not been able to use Netflix on the WiFi portion either.. - However before the above comments ...Have been using this for years, Fantastic app for tethering to your PC and Hot Spot.

Moto G -ATT I bought the full version..The USB portion works fine.. Occasionally it will switch of the data portion on my phone and I will have to manually switch the data back on.. The Wifi sharing works sometimes.. I have connected up to 2 mobile phones and an iPad. Wish it would work more often..
