All phones from Virgin Mobile USA have Caller ID. The caller's phone number will appear on-screen while the phone is ringing. Their name will appear on-screen if their phone number is in the Contact List on your phone.

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?

answer 1
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.
