Question
Does a 300 minute power plan use 3G, or Wi-Fi?
I'm confused, I'm not sure how these plans work. I read that paying for the unlimited includes 3g and 4g speeds. Is that exclusively for that plan or for all?

the 300 refers to talk time minutes - texting and data are unlimited including 3g and 4g speeds where available - the other plans are also unlimited, just the talking minutes change

The HTC Evo V is the only Virgin Mobile phone that has 4G technology. All other Beyond Talk phones have 3G technology that governs data speed. If you buy the Evo V then you can access the web at 4G speeds with ANY Beyond Talk plan where 4G coverage is available. 4G is only available in about 70 areas in the country. Click on MAP at the top of this page and select 4G.

No. Only the HTC Evo V and both Apple iPhones using a Beyond Talk plan and the $15/month Hotspot option can create a Mobile Hotspot.

Most likely, since the Sprint version of the Kyocera Rise is able to generate hotspots.

Question
Rumor Touch vs Kyocera Rise Android - Apps
I currently have the Rumor Touch- the apps are very lame. You cannot download them from the android store for free - or even those free ringtones from sites on the internet. Is it possible to use android market and download whatever free apps you like on this phone? I wanna use pandora, pinterest, fruit ninja, the one where you can scan a barcode, etc. etc.

Also, say the android comes out with a new version, will this phone upgrade to that new version automatically, or will I have the option to install the new version?

(My boyfriend has a Droid by Samsung with verizon and I would like to have similar app service as he does but stay with virgin mobile.)

Yes, you can get all those apps. The Android market is called the Google Play Store, and you can access it from your phone or from any computer connected to the internet. You can even install apps to your phone from your computer if you are logged into your Google account.

answer 2
Yes, you can download apps from the Android Market to the Kyocera Rise's 2 GB ROM/512 MB RAM Internal Memory.

Virgin Mobile rarely releases Android updates(i.e. Motorola Triumph). and the phones are locked, preventing you from updating it.

It should! But I have seen people complain about getting charged. They can only charge you if you have money in your account.
