NEW! The Overdrive Pro and the U600 USB Stick are both now Windows 8 and Mac OS 10.8x** compatible.

The Broadband2Go software is compatible with Windows (7, XP, Vista and 8**) and Mac OS (10.5x, 10.6x, 10.7x and 10.8x**). You'll also need administrative rights on your computer to install the software and drivers.

To attach the device to your computer, you'll need an available USB port.

**NOTE: The software on the U600 device does not support Windows 8 or Mac OS 10.8. A software download from the Virgin Mobile website is required. Do not follow the installation instructions provided with the device. Download the U600 User Guide and follow the installation instructions in the User Guide for Windows 8 or Mac OS 10.8.

See the U600 user manual at http://www.virginmobileusa.com/resources/phones/prepaid/manual/U600-Broadband2Go-User-Guide.pdf

I have a HP Envy m6-1125dx, and I haven't had any problems yet! Recently I was visiting my parents in Bardstown, KY
My younger brother has an older version. He helped me set my account. I never had to bother Customer Service. I have
used the Customer Service about 3 times. Very helpful people. They answered all my questions. My wife is the one that
wanted this service. She is also real happy with it. My laptop does have Windows 8.

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 you connect a wireless printer with this

answer 1
Yes. I had this same question before I bought this. Phone support that I called said it would worked but could not tell me how. After buying it I can say it was easy to connect. Epson Xp-300 worked in seconds. Airprint from idevice to printer required almost no setup thru this overdrive pro. I just put both devices on the same wireless network and tried it out. Since this is more than a hotspot, it has router hardware along with a 3G modem and a 4g modern. Read up in the online owners manual up in the faqs & guides tab above. Read close and you will find info that I too overlooked the first read thru. Even one page of first bunch has an icon showing a printer. Good luck.

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.

are there unlimited bites?

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.

It appears there is some simple file sharing enable, but I'm doubtful that it will work for iPad or iPhone. A real laptop could store images or files on it to share with other users. I'd imagine it would also work to pull images off a card used in a camera while on the road, but I haven't tested that yet.
