I am starting this thread as a way to thank the Slickdeals community for all the joy and heartache I've received for all the hot deals. Lets flash as many phones to Pageplus as we can so that we are grandfathered in. So reply if you need help flashing. Cheers! hug

Thanks for your offer of help. I got the Moto G and the 17 page PDF, and I really want to do this. I've been procrastinating but I really want to do it tonight.

The last phone I flashed was an VX9100 about 5 years ago. I remember it was painful but I got it done.

Wish me luck. I will call you out if I need you!

I followed the .pdf about a week ago, it worked really well. The only broken link on the .pdf is the download for DFS but you can download that at cdmatool.com. Also, you do not have to disable OTA updates, I went from stock to 4.4.4 OTA just fine.

I'm already on Page Plus, but my younger kid wants to upgrade to the Moto G once she earns enough allowance for it (she's stuck with Android 2.3.4 currently).

1) Get Samsung phones
2) Download auto-flasher that is fully automatic and gets the job done in 30 seconds
3) ???
4) Profit

An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

That sounds fantastic. Where does one find this auto-flasher that you speak of? bulb

I just flashed an LG Volt 4g on Pageplus. Hardest part was getting the MSL. Voice and Text work OOB.

Fk...I got to Step 5, Call PP to Activate

I bought a plan then chatted with them

I gave them the MEID and they gave me a phone number

I DID NOT get the screen that shows on Step 6 of the PDF

*228 did not work, but I think *22801 started the activation (Press 1)

Went through the voice activation, but
Try to make test call

Shows Zero Bars
Error message "Mobile network not available"

I've seen this before, I think.

I switched from the Mobile Network Setting from HOME to Automatic and I get a signal.
I have another PP phone in my pocket, so I'm sure I can get signal.

I know I've seen this before where I have an account on HOME but switching to HOME shows zero bars, even though signal should be strong.

Is this a PagePlus issue? Where should I start again?

Kingo App is auto root for Samsung devices.
Then go to these forums and find a custom ROM if you want one. Follow instructions. It's stupid easy.

When I had an HTC phone I needed to run some kind of software through DOS and it was really confusing. I will own a Samsung from now on.
