Virgin Mobile occasionally changes their phones, devices and plans. Look for "Daily Mobile Hotspot" on the FEATURES & SPECS tab.

BEYOND TALK -TETHERING PHONES
Tethering, an internet connection to computers via USB cable from your phone, is not available on Virgin Mobile phones.

HOTSPOT
A hotspot provides internet access to Wi-Fi enabled (IEEE 802.11) devices like phones, laptops, iPads, PC/Macs, tablets, games, and more. Hotspots are widely available at cafes, libraries, bookstores, public transport, airports, etc.

► 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.

Mandatory. All providers are like that because Blackberries use an additional server/network that isn't owned by any of the cell providers out there.
