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.

Beyond Talk Plans feature Unlimited Web, Data, Messaging, and Email - with Talk Minutes included - starting at just $35/month.

Anything else costs extra. You need a cash balance in your Beyond Talk account to pay for goodies like international calls and international messages. You can use your balance to pay for downloads like ringtones, graphics, games, and apps. You can even buy a phone with the cash balance in your account.

You need money on your account to pay for next months service, anytime your balance is zero you will get notified your balance is low, you can ignore it until you need to renew your plan...If you make international calls or texts you will need a cash balance to pay for these events

It is against the terms of service to tether you computer to a VM phone, VM sells Broadband to go for that purpose. VMUSA does not have Stores they use retailers like Radio Shack and Best Buy to distribute their products.

You can buy any Virgin Mobile USA phone on this website with money in your Beyond Talk or payLo account. Add a phone to your cart then check out. If the balance in your account is high enough to cover the entire amount then "My Cash Balance" will appear in the PAYMENT METHOD box.

Minutes expire at the end of your month.
