   • Windows Requirements: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.

   Your Virgin Mobile account is setup using a browser window. The U600 is also configured using a browser window. The U600's device drivers will be
   downloaded to your Mac or Windows PC from the U600. You must use a Mac or Windows PC to setup your Virgin Mobile account and configure the U600.
   The U600 can only be used by one Mac or Windows PC at a time. The U600 does not create a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Sorry, Broadband2Go plans and the Broadband2Go Overdrive Pro and U600 work strictly within the USA.

The Broadband2Go Overdrive Pro and U600 use the Sprint Nationwide Network which only extends throughout the US, Hawaii, Washington DC, Puerto Rico, and US Virgin Islands. The Broadband2Go Overdrive Pro and U600 do not roam across other networks either. For these reasons the Broadband2Go Overdrive Pro and U600 cannot provide web access when located outside the USA. There is no option to make the Broadband2Go Overdrive Pro and U600 work outside the USA.

You don't need to buy a plan every day. Buy one whenever you need a mobile wireless internet connection for a day. Your data will last for a day or until you use 250 MB.
