Does your tablet or iPad meet the requirements for the U600? If not, consider the MiFi 2200 or the Overdrive Pro.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS - U600
Mac Requirements:
• Mac OS X, 10.5, 10.6, 10.7 only
• Windows* Requirements: Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7
• Your Mac or Windows PC must have a USB port available to connect to the U600 device.

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.

Buy a Broadband2Go device like the U600 USB Stick. Then buy a Broadband2Go plan ($35 or $55 per month or $5 per day) whenever you need mobile internet access. That's it.

There are 3 Broadband2Go plans: $35 per month, $55 per month, and $5 per day.

• When you have a 4G Broadband2Go device operating in 4G mode both the $35 and $55 per month will provide unlimited data for 1 month. Data access will continue after you receive 10GB of data but 4G speeds will be reduced to about 2Mbps. The $5 Daily plan will get you 500MB of data during your day.

• When you have a 3G device OR your 4G device is operating at 3G speed then:
   - You'll get 2GB of data at 3G speeds on the $35/month plan during your month.
   - You'll get 5GB of data at 3G speeds on the $55/month plan during your month.
   - You'll get 200MB of data at 3G speeds on the $5/day plan during your day."

Yes, you should be able to use an Ovation MC760 from Virgin Mobile USA with any current Broadband2Go plan.

There are 3 Broadband2Go plans: $35 per month, $55 per month, and $5 per day. With a 3G device like the Ovation the plans work like this:

   - You'll get 2GB of data at 3G speeds on the $35/month plan during your month.
   - You'll get 5GB of data at 3G speeds on the $55/month plan during your month.
   - You'll get 200MB of data at 3G speeds on the $5/day plan during your day.

The U600 USB stick can provide internet access to one computer at a time. The U600 USB stick does not create a Wi-Fi hotspot but is connected to one computer/device at a time via the USB port. You can move the U600 among several computers and use it with your Broadband2Go account as long as you configure each computer for use with the U600.

The Ovation MC760 supposedly supports Mac OS X, 10.3, 10.4, 10.5, 10.6 with a USB port.

Virgin Mobile doesn't take trades or upgrades. Maybe the store where you bought your Ovation will accept a trade or upgrade.
