Deal Details

Based on other suggestions, I decided to make this its own thread. If the moderators wish to merge it that is fine but this way I believe it will get more peoples attention since it is a brand new deal...

Plan includes 1200 minutes / 3000 texts or MMS / 100mb data usage

1) Offered by Page Plus Cellular; a Verizon Wireless MVNO (Reseller).
2) No activation fee. No fees. No taxes.
3) Same coverage area as Verizon Wireless Prepaid.
4) You may use: a) ANY Verizon Postpaid handset with a clean ESN. (Except banned list below!) b) Other CDMA handsets may possibly be used with/without flashing.
5) $29.95/Month fee can be lowered even further by purchasing refill cards at various discounters.

Page Plus: http://www.pagepluscellular.com/

More Info: http://www.howardforums.com/showt...?t=1576900

Coverage Map: http://www.pagepluscellular.com/W...20Map.aspx

As of 5/19/2014, Verizon iPhone 4 and 4S models can now be officially activated on PP. iPhone 5/5s models are still not officially allowed and will not activate without flashing. YMMV.



Calling Mart discount codes are likely to be 5% for now on at the HIGHEST. I still recommend and use PagePlusDirect.com for discounted pins at a 6% discount (or higher)

Other Plans available:

"The 12" - $12/month. Includes: 250 Minutes / 250 SMS or MMS / 10MB Data
Unlimited TnT - $39.95/month. Includes: Unlimited Minutes / Unlimited SMS or MMS (not including data) / 20MB Data
"The 55" - $55/month. Includes: Unlimited Minutes / Unlimited SMS or MMS (not including data) / 500MB Data

Virgin Mobile sounds rite up your alley, they just started offering unlimited data with 300 minutes for $25. Search the forums, been getting allot of buzz.
Thanks for the info, looks like a great deal but the phones on virgin mobile arent that appealing. Want an android phone. I have heard that certain carriers like sprint offer data only plans. Might be looking into that if there is a easy voip solution like sipgate + google voice for sms.

Yea the phone part is the stickler, but a thread was just started with the rumor touch, seems to be the best phone for that plan at the moment. If virgin offered a few more minutes on this plan I would probably switch, but I will say I have been mostly happy with pageplus, but their customer service is by far the worst I have ever experienced. Even worse then Paypal and I had thought that was impossible.

Good suggestion, but please note that Virgin only accepts Virgin-branded phones for its plans (and those phones demand close-to-retail prices on eBay). I think one of their best phones is the Blackberry Curve, but that will run you close to $300.

Straight Talk offers unlimited data on their unlimited plan for $45, but you are very limited in phone selection. Some don't look _that_ bad. See the Samsung R355C and Finesse. They get expensive too, though. Frown

Just having my Incredible *on* for an hour will suck up 50MB of data.... prepaid just isn't economical for data intensive smartphones right now. shake head

Anyone that is using the phone would have needed to flash it to work with Verizon....

I highly doubt anyone is, just based off the fact there's a way better selection of Verizon phones out there that work natively.

Repped OP!
Keith Wireless how do you get $12.00 credit - I was on there site I did not see any mention of $12.00 credit.

I am new to all this - what is the most inexpensive phone I can buy that will work on this plan?.

Someone said minutes are irrelevant after Google Voice - how will google voice work to save my 1200 minutes.

I get call on google voice will connect to PP but wont the PP take away the minutes that I will be talking?

Similarly if I call using ggogle voice it connect to PP the minutes will be taken.

How will it effect the data credit if I use google voice.

Thanks to anyone who can help me understand these situations.
P+ hasn't offered $12 activations..aka Keith..since like last year. Keith stopped doing many services we have come to love since last year due to rampant fraud from assholes.

So we can't have nice things anymore.

Minutes are not irrelevant when it comes to Google Voice. I'm guessing you read some really old posts. What they mean is that on Sprint Verizon, or T-Mobile, they offer features like Pick 3/Friends & Family/myFaves. This allows you to set a certain number that you can get unlimited calling to.

P+ does not have this feature, so it is redundant. However, if you get an Android phone, you may be able to use the Google Voice mobile app, but again, that uses data, which P+ only gives you 50MB of, so it is also pretty redundant as it will be used it very quickly.

Hope that helps you understand.

Sprint does not offer data only plans. Please let me know if they ever do laugh out loud

I haven't seen any carrier offer any unlimited data ONLY plans in a long while, due to very increased use of smartphones, and people getting smart with your technique.

Closest thing would have to be SERO...which does have unlimited data, unlimited texting, and 500 minutes for $30/month. This is a legacy/grandfather plan and is no longer obtainable through "direct" sources.

I don't think this is possible. I'm curious as to why? Why not a Droid, Droid X, Incredible..etc.? Those are configured to work on Verizon and will work seamlessly with P+.

I guess technically it could be possible if you did the right edits, but I haven't seen anyone place the $550+ investment to do so...

This has been known for a while now. Android smartphones suck a lot of data. Try googling around or searching the marketplace for a data blocker for only when you need it..

What is this data blocker you speak of ?

I tried googling , but only got chat forums that lead me nowhere.

Can anyone elaborate on where i can get a data blocker for my droid for use with Pageplus ?

Try APNdroid from the marketplace. Or WiSyncPlus..but read the website and reviews first (I don't have access to an Android phone..so I had to look online)...and see if it'll work with Droids, as Verizon seems to have disabled some functionality back in January or something.


Here are two more ways that may work...
Quote :
Install Better Cut or Any Cut
Long press on the home screen.
Choose 'Shortcuts'
Choose 'Better Cut' (Or Any Cut if that's the case)
Choose 'Activity'
Select 'Data Call Settings'
Select an Icon, choose a name and select 'Create'

Then open the shortcut and it takes you to a menu.

just uncheck 'Data Call Enabled' and that will cut off all 3g/2g data.
Another way...
Quote :
To disable data:

- Open dialer
- Dial *#*#4636#*#* - 'Phone Info' screen appears
- Press Menu button
- Tap on More
- Tap Disable data connection

Simply reverse the steps to re-enable your data connection ... either immediately, or after your next reboot.
...tell me how that works out Smilie

Is anyone using a Samsung Alias 2 (u750) on this? I absolutely hate my Omnia, and I've had a couple of Verizon users recommend the u750 as a replacement. I know the u740 is out due to PP offering it themselves, but I'd rather go with the newer technology if it's available. Plus, I think PPC locks down the phones so that some fun tweaks are no longer possible.

If anyone is looking for a great phone recommendation, I really recommend the LG Dare. I was previously using the very old LG EnV, but it was starting to die on me. Luckily, my girlfriend had a spare Dare lying around, so she gave it to me. The touch interface took a little time to get used to, but I really like this phone. Not only is it feature-rich, but it's also very stylish.

Total phone newb here, but exactly what does 50 MB equate to on a phone? Say I were to get one of those U750 (Samsung) or LG Dare, would it drain data like people mentioned about the Android or is that a completely different circumstance?

I'm basically looking to get a new phone that I can talk & text on and maybe surf the web every now and then (not all the time). Would 50 MB be enough to do that?
