Question
Is the screen made from Gorilla glass?

answer 1
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! ;)

HTC ONE V has Flash. Reverb does not and is not compatible with Flash. Due to that I will be returning my Reverb

the htc one has a slightly lower rating, does not have a front facing camera, has a non removable battery, a smaller processor(1.4ghz on the reverb vs. 1ghz on the one), but it does have beats audio, and costs less

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.

Question
Is the Samsung Reverb a SDXC flash memory device.
Can the Reverb use the new generation of SDXC type (micro) SD card?

answer 1
The manual reports the device is an MicroSD/ MicroSDHC device, but also list that the phone will accept 64GB cards, which are MicroSDXC type Flash memory. SDHC cards go up to a maximum Size of 32GB, SDXC have a theoretical max size of 2TB (2048GB). or do you think the 64GB statement was a typo (Now I feel like my friend's retired electrical engineer dad)

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!

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 :)

Virgin Mobile USA doesn't take trade-ins or do upgrades. You can trade or sell your Chaser elsewhere though.
