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.

Currently, only the HTC Evo V(4G), Samsung Galaxy S II(4G) and both Apple iPhones(3G) using a Beyond Talk plan and the $15/month Hotspot option can create a Mobile Hotspot for a notebook, iPad, and other devices.

UPDATE (11-20-12): After finding conflicting answers to this question, I went directly to Samsung site tonight and an agent there told me that the Reverb does, indeed, have gorilla glass. I asked if it was Gorilla Glass 2 and he said it is. SO .... despite what I was told previously, I'm going to have to assume that the tech support agent knows what he's talking about. He said he got information from Samsung database. Gorilla Glass, it is! ;)

Question
Is this a mobile hotspot ?
I have a Virgin hotspot, but at $40 / month for JUST that, it's not cheap. If I can use this as hotspot as well, that would be great!
