► First, you're going to need a Mac or Windows PC to start your Virgin Mobile account and configure the Overdrive Pro.
SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS - Overdrive Pro
• Mac Requirements: Mac OS X, 10.4 & Higher G4/G5
• Windows* Requirements: Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7
• Your Mac or Windows PC must be Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11b/g/n enabled to connect to the Overdrive Pro OR have an available USB port.
Requirements for a USB Tethered Connection
Your device supports a direct connection through a USB cable to a Windows or Mac computer. (This is commonly referred to as a “tethered” connection.)
See page 26 in the Overdrive Pro user manual at http://www.virginmobileusa.com/resources/phones/prepaid/manual/OD-Pro-user-guide.pdf
Your Virgin Mobile account is setup using a browser window. The Overdrive Pro is also configured using a browser window. The Overdrive's device drivers will be downloaded to your Mac or Windows PC from the Overdrive. You must use a Mac or Windows PC to setup your Virgin Mobile account and configure the Overdrive.
Once you've created a Wi-Fi hotspot with your Overdrive you should be able to access the web with any Wi-Fi enabled device(i.e. your Kindle).
► Second, there are 3 Broadband2Go plans: $35 per month, $55 per month, and $5 per day. All 3 plans will provide unlimited data for 1 month or 1 day when you have a 4G Broadband2Go device operating in 4G mode. Data access will continue after you receive 10GB of data but 4G speeds will be reduced to about 2Mbps.
When you have a 3G device OR your 4G device is operating at 3G speed then:
• You'll get 2GB of data at 3G speeds on the $35/month plan or 5GB of data at 3G speeds on the $55/month plan during your month.
• You'll get 200MB of data at 3G speeds on the $5/day plan during your day.
► Third, before buying any 4G Broadband2Go device you should check COVERAGE in your area on the top line of this webpage.
