I have a couple of old Motorola V60 and E815 phones. Also have an "antique" BellAtlantic
Motorola StarTac from 1997. They run on digital/analog bands.
Can those phones still be used/activated on Verizon network? (as extra lines on my existing acct)
Come to think of it, does Verizon still have analog system in their network?
You can activate the E815 since it is E911 capable but the others can not be activated. Verizon no longer has an analog network.
I have a E815 active on my account (sort of a backup line), so I can definitively say that it still is usable on the VZW network.
E815 is definitely OK. It's not that old, and it was ahead of its time when it came out. It even has 3G.
Apparently any CDMA phone can be used on Page Plus, but name-brand Verizon requires it to be new enough to have the GPS/E911 function.
running my laptop on spare batteries. I had Verizon activate my old Motorola V60
and it is now working like a charm. I forgot how good the voice quality was on
the littele V60.(compared to my Verizon Samsun Fascinate and AT&T iPhone 4)

LOL... I stick have my 5 year old LG VX3300. I last used it about 2 years ago when I had to wait for a refurbished phone to arrive in the mail
Of course, Sprint/NEXTEL, T-Mobile, and metroPCS never had any analog to begin with.
I miss those old phones. I had an old LG VX6100 that had analog support and I used that ******* all over Alabama back when VZW didn't even offer service in my area. I was stuck on AT&T(cingular) and remember going to vzw's website at least once a month to see if I could get service. I actually signed up with a tennessee address and number and used the phone in Alabama instead. I had better coverage with that device than back then than I do TODAY with my att captivate!!!
I have an old CDMA phone that even has the Verizon logo on it. VZW would not (re-) activate it because they (falsely) claim it doesn't support E911. Well, actually, because it is not on their list of E911 capable phones. I offered to fax them the page out of its manual that clearly states it supports E911, but they made it clear to me, they don't care. If it is not on their E911 list, then as far as they are concerned, it does not have it.
