4G and 3G data speeds refer to the connection between the Overdrive Pro and the Sprint Network. WiFi refers to the connection between the Overdrive Pro and your laptop or PC.

• You'll get unlimited data at 4G speeds IF you have a 4G device AND you are in an area covered by 4G. You'll get unlimited data ONLY when using 4G, when/where it is available. 4G speed will be reduced to about 256 kbps after you receive 10GB but 4G data transfer will continue.

• You'll automatically be on 3G coverage IF 4G is unavailable for your 4G device. IF 4G is unavailable or you have a 3G device 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.

• Click on the MAP on the top line of this webpage to view data coverage in your area. Be sure to select your coverage interest such as 4G Coverage or Data Coverage(3G).

Do you have a phone that provides a mobile hotspot? A mobile hotspot provides web access to Wi-Fi enabled devices like laptops, iPads, PC/Macs, tablets, games, and more. Virgin Mobile offers Broadband2Go plans and devices that are used to create mobile hotspots. The HTC Evo V 4G and both Apple iPhones can create mobile hotspots with a Beyond Talk plan and the Hotspot option.

Maybe, depends where you live.

You're charged sales tax on Top-Ups, purchases of equipment and accessories, and shipping & handling charges where required by law. The amount of tax is based on the billing address of the debit/credit card or PayPal account you use.

Be sure to select your coverage interest such as 4G, data coverage, or voice coverage.

• "Coverage is not available everywhere and varies based on a number of factors. Our coverage maps provide high level estimates of our coverage areas when using your device outdoors under optimal conditions. Coverage isn't available everywhere. Estimating wireless coverage and signal strength is not an exact science. There are gaps in coverage within our estimated coverage areas that, along with other factors both within and beyond our control (network problems, software, signal strength, your wireless device, structures, buildings, weather, geography, topography, etc.), will result in dropped and blocked connections, slower data speeds, or otherwise impact the quality of services..."

• Download speeds are impossible to determine for the above reasons.

Maybe. The Overdrive Pro with one of the Broadband2Go plans will create a mobile hotspot for internet access for notebook, laptop or other mobile devices. This can also be done with your Beyond Talk plan but with the HTC Evo V or one of the Apple iPhones using the $15/month Hotspot option.
