I don't know what your question is.
Tracfone service and your wife's Mifi are separate services.
Your phone needs a cellular 3G signal to access the internet and to send/receive text attachments. Your phone may be a CDMA phone and use Verizon (or in some areas of the country, Sprint). Or your phone may be a GSM phone and use AT&T (or in some areas of the country T-mobile).
Your wife's Mifi uses Virgin Mobile which uses Boost's coverage - not sure whose towers.
Here are maps - your Tracfone probably gets a 3G signal more places than your Wifi's Mifi
In any case, I don't know what your question is but you cannot use each other's 3G. You each have separate hardware that receives signals from different towers.
