Nobody knows if the Venture can be used as a hotspot yet.

The Optimus V and Optimus Slider could be used as a hotspot with FoxFi installed. But they were made by LG, not Alcatel. Only time will tell whether this phone will be capable of hotspotting, and anybody who says otherwise is shooting steam out of their mouth.

answer 6
It is possible but,
You need to root the phone (find solution on Google)
Then download one of the root versions of WiFi tethering software to the phone and try it out.
if it doesn't work the phone wasn't meant to tether.
it can be forced but it would damage the hardware.

Instagram Version:3.4.4 requires Android:2.2 and up. The Venture has Android™ 2.3 and 512MB RAM (Internal Memory). Instagram should work if you have enough room in Internal Memory. If not, then you will have to uninstall some other program.

No. Instagram on the venture phone does not exist. The phone's android system 2.3(Gingerbread) is too old to support instagram.

So far, All Virgin Android phones had more-or-less stock Android configurations (v2.2, FroYo). This means that the G-mail application will be the same as in other Android devices.
