YES YOU CAN...You can use up to FIVE(5) wireless enabled devices at one time even, on Just ONE(1) device too. Device meaning, of course, The Virgin Mobile Hot Spot. You better hope that you can find an unlimited usage area, where there is 4G coverage available, otherwise then, you will be using up your allotted 3G / GB's of usage, more rapidly, as the more devices you load onto it at any given one time...Understand this all better now...? Good.

In order for you to get the Unlimited usage, you will need to find out if your on Sprint's 4 G coverage area first... Then you will need to be on the $35.00 usage plan or on the $55.00 usage plan, that includes up to 5 GB(Gigabytes) and Free* unlimited 4 G usage. The * means only if you can find and stay in the 4 G coverage areas near to your location, while using either plan, as described above, Okay...? Good.

The monthly non contact fee is $35 for unlimited 4G data. If Virgin/Sprint 4G is available in your area, this is a great deal.

Yes, you gotta buy top-up cards or pay a monthly subscription. But if you buy this card from Wal-mart there's a 6gb 3G/4G monthly plan for $20... a great deal which you buy in 6 month chunks.

With the top-up cards you can pay as you go though, or load up credits in the virgin mobile site. You don't need a contract, and you only have to pay for what you use. 1 day, 5 day and monthly. The details are on Virgin's site.

Up to 5 devices can connect at once, you also have the option to choose how many down to only 1, YES.

supports 5 devices, but don't be expecting performance and speed if all these devices are accessing the internet.

1 attached device barely attains 400kbps, so attaching more devices with internet usage would bring data to a crawl.

YES...You will be given the option to have it as a secured wireless unit, which requires a password or like a security key code, to be able to access it. It is an EIGHT DIGIT numerical set of numbers, that comes with it on the actual unit itself, once you go to Activate it, then you will easily see it then, Okay...
