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.

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.

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...

Unfortunatly, no though it's at a 1.4 GHz processor single core, which is plenty fast especially in the prepaid market. I have the Evo V which has a 1.2 GHz dual core. I hope this helped a bit and please let me know if u get the phone and like it :)

In quick short answer form,

It's screen is .3 smaller then the EVO and it's not as blocky and fits a bit better in your hand, as well only SLIGHTLY smaller in size. Also the slight curve point of the Reverb makes it a comfortable fit in your hand instead of a straight line. Also

Hmm... Virgin Mobile USA doesn't have contracts. And Virgin Mobile USA doesn't take trade-ins or upgrade phones. The phone is your after Virgin Mobile USA sells you the phone; you can sell it or trade it elsewhere.

That's an Android 4.0 feature because they took away the little magnifying glass from the bottom. Now you tap there search your phone or the web. It's actually pretty handy if you get used to it.

Virgin Mobile Monthly plans are unlimited web and data so you can use it to your hearts content. The reverb is sadly not a 4G phone, it's 3G, but it's still unlimited.

As a side note: No matter the plan after about 2.5 GB of data, VM will slow the speed of it down a notch but it is still unlimited. :)

This phone is not 4g. They slow you down at 2.5gb to answer your question.
