Can Page+ find what kind of phone I'm using through my ESN/MEID?
I picked up a HTC Thunderbolt a couple weeks ago eagerly awaiting to port my number over and activate it on Page+... unfortunately I found out today that Page+ does not support 4G devices
I don't want to go through the process of finding a new phone especially since I got this phone for such a steal. I thought that I had hit a dead end, but after some research I found that biegephone offers a service to flash my phone so that Page+ would work on my phone, but I need my phone to be activated on Page+.
So my question... Can I port a number over to my Thunderbolt and lie to them about what phone I'm using? The reason I'm asking this is because I used howardforums, but they asked me which phone I'm using. Can they identify what kind of phone I'm using through the MEID? Can anyone suggest to me who I should use to activate my Page+ account?
No. CDMA isn't like GSM in that regard. Your MEID is required to get the phone activated and on the network. At any rate, of course they can tell what phone/device you are using on their network. The question is whether they would bother or even care, and the answer is likely NO.
Thanks for your responses everyone. 1 last question. I was browsing through the list of sellers listed on 'New to PagePlus?' and I noticed that one of the sellers will activate my phone to PagePlus for free. Is this legitimate?
