All questions and answers on this board are from fellow Virgin Mobile customers. We help each other out here. Virgin Mobile staff monitor the content but generally don't comment here.

It's not possible to say. Even Virgin Mobile support doesn't know. You'll just have to bookmark this page and check back regularly.

For the most accurate answer click 'Support' at the top of this page and ask Virgin Mobile's Customer Care via phone or email. You can dial *86 on your Virgin Mobile phone, too. You can also click LIVE CHAT on the left side of this web page, if available.

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...

Sorry, no. Currently a Mobile Hotspot can be created only with the Samsung Galaxy S II(3G or 4G WiMAX network), both Apple iPhones 4 & 4S(3G network) using a Beyond Talk plan ($35, $45, or $55 per month) and the $15/month Hotspot option.
