    Any Verizon handset with a clean ESN can be activated on PagePlus.

    Hi all,

    Some questions…
    Page Plus states that any unlocked cdma phone can be used (I assume with a clean esn).
    I have some old sprint phones. What is involved in unlocking them ?
    Is it knowing the msl or is it something else being cleared (perhaps with the use of qpst) ?

    Unlocking a Sprint phone isn’t easy, typically. Unlocking them for data (beyond SMS) is very difficult, and often impossible (either because too few people have attempted/worked on it, or because of firmware-coded restrictions).

    My advice: Unless you’re earning $1/hour, it’s probably going to save you money to buy a Verizon-branded phone, and use that on Page Plus.

    I often utilize 411 information service. How much would it cost to add on this service monthly for approximately 20 usage a month?

    Wow, 40$ is a great deal for unlimited texts and min, but I do have one question. What kind of reception does this service offer(what network doea it run on)? I have a straight talk phone from walmart and pay 45$ but it runs on the Verizon network which is the best quality recption network. I also get unlimited minutes, texting, and web browsing.
