    Sprint LG Phone LX160 Compatible w/PagePlus?

    Several months ago, I found a Sprint LG phone, LX160, and after calling the owner, they never came to claim it.

    I'm wondering if it would be compatible w/PagePlus. Would it have to be unlocked???

    Could the MEID DEC or HEX be looked up by a dealer to see if it would work?

    Thanks for any help.

    Mary

    Contact PPC to ask if the ESN is clean for activation.

    1. Sprint, you say ...
    2. Yes, I've been offered Sprint phones activated on P+ ; I've seen offers to activate my Sprint phone on P+. Unlocking means you can set up the phone "over the air" sorta automatically. Otherwise, a few manual steps with P+ customer service.
    3. Same thing you can do by calling P+ customer service.

    Yes, it can work

    Hi Mary,

    I have this phone and did get it to work with Page Plus. The phone is rather easy to program since it will give away its MSL/SPC code in QXDM while still in locked mode. You need to set the sec_code to 000000 so that *228 can reprogram the phone and install a Verizon PRL. The phone will display the roaming indicator constantly unless you patch the PRL (using the RL Editor in QPST) to use Sprint-based roaming indicator values. Data can be made to work too with a little bit of effort (using the ##DATA command), however the browser built into the phone doesn't have a lot memory available and I get a lot "Page too big" errors even for something simple like m.google.com so it is probably not worth it.

    To get the phone online quickly and cheaply, I recommend paying flashitnow.com $5 for an unlimited half flashing account. That service will get the phone up and running on Page Plus with voice and without the roaming indicator always on very easily.
