    Straight talk phone on Page Plus

    My friend bought a Straight Talk phone when he couldn't find a local Page Plus phone in an emergency. He would rather be on Page Plus. After his initial minutes are done can he convert this phone over? I believe they both use the Verizon network.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    I have a formerly StraightTalk r451c on PagePlus. Works great! No problem programming.

    Just have him remember that when he goes to port his phone number from StraightTalk to PagePlus the st account number is the ESN of the phone and unlock code is the last 4 digits of his phone number. Be prepared to wait 1-2 days for it to complete.

    Yup... Everything works fine. No 3G though. Stuck with 1X just like it was on ST.

    Right about the time ST launched.......
    Having to wait even an hour to get a prepaid wireless plan pin from an online dealer or pin seller is NOT great, good or even mediocre customer service when you consider this instant internet age we live in. Why let anyone convince you otherwise? Understaffed is what it's called.(Two is not a team)

    I recently tested the "don't mention a PP Dealer by name" rule here on PP Hofo......trust me, it is still in effect - got me a 7 day ban.

    Same here... no problems porting Straight Talk phones to Page Plus. But you will never get "data" like you would on a a non ST phone (unless you flash a new ROM). The Straight Talk phones are locked down to their portal, which is why they can offer "unlimited data".
