    Need help with FoxFi

    I previously used a prepaid phone from StraightTalk and was blocked because I did not know that a rooted phone was not allowed on their network. I purchased a Samsung Galaxy SII with a new telephone number and still use StraightTalk, but I can't get FoxFi to work now. Has it got something to do with the GB 2.3.6 version this new telephone uses? I'm not opposed to paying a tethering fee, but I do not want to pay for an app that will not work. Can someone tell me in simple terms what to do?

    Getting ready to buy a Samsung Captivate Galaxy S from Ebay and using it on Straight Talk. I was doing research on rooting the phone. Does Straight Talk not allow rooted phones and how would they know? Sorry for the newbie question.

    Every phone I have had for the last two years on straight talk has been either rooted or jailbroke. I don't think they know or care.

    Blocking rooted phones is nonsense. been using rooted and jailbroken phones without any issues

    I've never had an unrooted phone on ST. I don't think they like you messing with their proprietary phones, but on the byod program it's not a problem. Using too much data is a problem, whether it's because of tethering or streaming or downloading. The TOS specifically forbids tethering and streaming, but as long as you don't use too much and stay under the radar you should be OK.
