The Overdrive comes with an A/C charger (with USB port) to power the device and recharge the battery. You shouldn't remove the battery.

For 3G yes you can run out of data because you don't have unlimited 3G anymore. You do, however, have unlimited 4G Wimax data. You're throttled if/when you hit 10GB but it still means you have unlimited data.

Yes you can swap devices with one of the new 4G devices (U600 or Ovedrive Pro) without opening a new account. If you were grandfathered into an expired Broadband2Go plan you may lose that plan once you swap devices.

• Virgin Mobile answered your question in the FAQs:

Q. How much data is 2.5GB?
A. To give you an idea, it’s about 400,000 mobile internet page views, about 90,000(!) emails (without attachments), 91 hours of streaming music, or 20 hours of video clips.
*Data usage per activity is based on an average. Bandwidth varies by website, video, email, and other internet application. http://virginmobileusa.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5687

• For a list of how you're charged for data usage, read the legal stuff and search for "Data Usage:" at http://www.virginmobileusa.com/legal/general-terms-and-conditions-no-annual-contract

Sorry, no.

Virgin Mobile answered your question in the FAQs:

Do all Virgin Mobile Broadband2Go plans include 4G?
No. 4G is only available with the new $35 and $55 plans. If you purchased a plan before 7/4/12, you may keep your existing plan unless you switch to another plan or until the plan is discontinued, however you will not be able to use 4G, even if you purchase a 3G/4G Broadband2Go device, unless you migrate to the $35 or $55 plans. If you purchase the $35 or $55 plan, you must have a 3G/4G device to be able to take advantage of 4G speeds. You may use your 3G-only Broadband2Go device (for example, the Novatel Wireless MiFi 2200) on the new plans, but will only be able to use the 3G component of those plans, and will not have access to 4G.
