    Iphone 5 on pageplus?

    Does anyone know if the iphone 5 will be able to be activated on pp? It is going to be a 4g phone and i dont know if it will come with a 4g sim like all other 4g phones. Any thoughts?

    My guess is that most likely it will not activate out of the box, at least until the hackers have had some time with it. Not sure if it will ever activate because of the 4G vs 3G issues, but some other 4G phones have been activated, according to posts here, so maybe it will be possible.

    I haven't been able to find any indication that VZW is using a 4G sim card in the iphone, and this is what the order page says:

    "International Roaming (CDMA) is available on all Verizon Wireless devices and does not require an activated SIM Card. (Global Data Plan or Feature is suggested)"

    So as long as it still uses a 14-digit hex MEID in the format of RRXXXXXXZZZZZZ (X = manufacturers code, Z = serial number) I don't know that it'd be any different. PP cust svc will probably still refuse to activate it, and certain dealers might still do it, just like any other device.

    hasn't anyone done any research here?
    iphones are not allowed on ppc. IF you get one activated you're lucky BUT may be turned off without notice
    4g LTE phones MUST be flashed to work 3g on ppc

    imo there are better phones than the iphone and iphone hardly worth what you're going to pay for it. better off with the sammy galaxy s3. but to each his own
    The iPhone 5 is available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models in both white and black, an unlocked devices will cost $649, $749 and $849 respectively

    all iphones from their inception had sim cards. most people didn't know that.
    ip5 will now use a nano sim.

    Good luck hopefully you can get it working. You might have to wait for a jailbreak or some of the CDMA programming tools to work idk though.

    I can confirm that you will have to flash the iPhone 5 in order to use it on Page Plus. You cannot dial *228 just like any other LTE phones. You would be better off getting a 4S.

    The iphone 5 no contract are selling on ebay for about $1000. Are you seriously considering buying one to activate on PPC or are you just curious?

    It would pay for itself in less than three years if the PPC savings over Vzw were $30/mo. Sounds like a DEAL to me...or maybe not!

    In 3 years we'll have the iphone 10 or maybe 20.

    No. The iPhone is only updated once a year, so the 2015 iPhone will be the iPhone 8.
