No, for now you are grandfathered in to the $25/month plan, as soon as you change phones your minimum will be $35/month

Sorry, no. Look for "Daily Mobile Hotspot" on the FEATURES & SPECS tab. Virgin Mobile occasionally changes their phones, devices and plans.

► You need the following to create a Mobile Hotspot via Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11):

1. One of the Beyond Talk plans ($35, $45, or $55 per month)
2. The $15 per month OR $5 per day Hotspot option in your Virgin Mobile account
3. One of these Beyond Talk phones:
(uses 3G network only) Apple iPhone 4s, Kyocera Event
(uses 4G LTE and 3G networks) HTC Desire, Kyocera Hydro Vibe, LG Optimus F3, LG Volt, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy SIII,
Samsung Galaxy Victory

Log into your account. [MANAGE MY ACCOUNT at the top of this page.] On the Account Overview tab click on 'Change My Plan'. From there you can
see the plans and options that are available for your phone.

I keep seeing this same answer, but O believe that if u download pdanet from playstore you can tether to your laptop. I currently have Rise which isn't listed for the capability, but currently works. I'm switching to the Reverb and hope to be able to do same thing. Also, it's confusing to see so many contradictions as to question's about upgrading to Jellybean, some answers so no, some say automatic, some say VM won't. I just hope it is does can will. If so, Reverb will be just like my Nextbook other than it's dual core.. Pdanet on google playstore should help you tether though, but it does use your megabytes, so be aware of usage...

► System Update: 3 Way Calling
There's no additional charge to use the 3 Way Calling feature, however you'll be charged standard rates for both calls while you're connected to both calls.
For example, if you're on the Pay As You Go plan, and you're talking to a friend, you're being charged $0.10/min for that call. If you make a second call without dropping the first call (to use the 3 Way Calling feature), you'll be charged $0.20/min since you're on two calls at the same time ($0.10 per min, per call).
If you're on the Monthly plan with a limited number of minutes, a minute will be used for each call for each minute of talk time. http://virginmobileusa.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5756/

• System Update: 3-Way Calling Supported Phones

The phones below will support 3-Way Calling:

Phone Date Available
iPhone (Virgin Mobile) Immediate

Samsung Galaxy SII (Virgin Mobile) 1Q13

http://virginmobileusa.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5754
Note that you will need a Beyond Talk plan ($35, $45, or $55 per month) to use any of the above phones.
See the Beyond Talk plans and phones at: http://www.virginmobileusa.com/cell-phone-plans/beyond-talk-plans/overview/#overview

• 3 Way Calling is not supported on any other Virgin Mobile, payLo, or Beyond Talk phones at this time.
