'Just got off the phone with Virgin Mobile...VM's wifi hotspot plan is not available for the Kyocera Rise.

I hand-picked this device because of it's alleged hotspot capabilities. Just before purchasing from VM with my pay-lo phone balance, I made a phone call to VM to ask specifically if the Rise supported the hotspot plan, and was told it did.

Well, give VM a phone call...if ya talk to Xio...she'll tell ya otherwise.

I can't even think straight right now...soooooo pissed.
