Yes it can. There are two ports on the bottom edge of the device. One on either side of the micro USB port. They are neatly covered by sliding covers. They are easy to use, cover well and cannot be lost. Finding a correct antenna might be a little hard thou.

Virgin Mobile is simply re-branded Sprint data service, so, anywhere you get Sprint 3G, you will also have Virgin Mobile service.

Requirements for a USB Tethered Connection
Your device (Overdrive Pro) supports a direct connection through a USB cable to a Windows or Mac computer. (This is commonly referred to as a “tethered” connection.)

Question
Can I keep my Mifi 2200 "plan" and use this device?
I have a mifi 2200 and would like to use this device instead of the mifi. Can I purchase this one and use the existing plan that I have with VirginMobile?

answer 1
Yes in a way. I purchased the Overdrive Pro a few weeks ago and called the Virgin Mobile 1-800 number to have the customer service rep. take my MIFI 2200 off the account and replace it with the Overdrive Pro 3G/4G. I was three days away from my plan renewal anyway. I saved $15 also because my new plan costs $35 for unlimited 4G/with 2 gigs 3G data. Many of the old plan prices have been discontinued and replaced with $35 for unlimited 4G/with 2 gigs 3G...or... $55 for unlimited 4G/with 5 GB of 3G data. Every now and then usually on cloudy days, my 4G signal gets weak and the device switches to 3G. That's not a problem since I don't stream video in 3G.

See page 44 in the Overdrive Pro user manual at http://www.virginmobileusa.com/resources/phones/prepaid/manual/OD-Pro-user-guide.pdf

Max Wi-Fi users — You can limit the number of Wi-Fi users (maximum of five) that can connect to the device. A smaller number improves performance and
security.

answer 2
Sorry, the Overdrive Pro will only provide web access within the USA.

Broadband2Go devices use the Sprint Nationwide Network which only extends throughout the US, Hawaii, Washington DC, Puerto Rico, and US Virgin Islands. The VMUSA BB2G devices do not roam across other networks either. For these reasons Broadband2Go devices cannot provide web access when located outside the USA. There is no option to make Broadband2Go work outside the USA.

Is there a $10 top up available?
If it's good for just 10 days do the 10 days have to be consecutive?

No. You can use it just 1 day out of the 10 days if you want. Say you buy it September 1st...it'll expire September 10th and you'll lose every MB that you didn't use. If you use all 100MB on one day or before the expired date, then you'd have to buy another 10MB if you want to continue using Broadband2Go.

Virgin Mobile answered your question in the FAQs:

• If I'm currently on a Virgin Mobile BroadBand2Go $10/$20/$50 plan, will I be able to keep my plan?
Yes. If you bought a $10/$20/$50 plan before 7/4/12, you will be able to keep your plan at this time, unless you switch to another plan or until the plan is discontinued. However, if you are on one of these plans, you will not be able to enjoy 4G speeds, even if you have purchased a 3G/4G device. http://www.virginmobileusa.com/mobile-broadband-plans/broadband-2-go/overview/#faqs

• Yes, if you're currently on a Virgin Mobile BroadBand2Go $10 plan the 10 days are consecutive.

• The Broadband2Go $10 plan has expired and is no longer available to new customers.

Sorry for my previous statement where I said the Older 3G devices will not be able to use the new plans seems to have been wrong. According to an online chat with a virgin mobile rep it was stated that my Older Mifi will still be able to receive the new plans even tho it is still just 3G. I hope this information helps a little in the correction of that. With the Unlimited you will see speed drops at 265 kb/s or lower though after you hit the cap for 2GB or 5GB on those two new plans.

As far as the customer service rep told me that yes, you can still have unlimited but only 4G/3G speeds up to the 2GB or 5GB cap they set for the 2 plans and if you have an old 3G device you are not able to use their new plans with them. I hope this helps. We don't have 4G in our area but we can still use the 4G device to get these new plans. Another side tip is we are on the $50 unlimited plan here with 3G up to 2.5GB and then it is throttled back after that and I asked how long after do I have to renew my $50 plan before I lose it for good, they told me 3 Months so if you don't renew as soon as your plan expires you will not have to worry for 3 Months then. That was very helpful to know. I didn't want my plan to go away if I didn't renew before my plan expired. ;)
-Tip from the Techy.
