    Samsung Illusion activation question

    Hi all,

    I have a brand new Samsung Illusion and I changed ESN already. Does anyone know how to skip Verizon activation step so I can dial *22890 and activate it into Page Plus? Please let me know.

    Thanks,

    I thought you couldn't use the Illusion on Pageplus? Did you get it working? If so do tell.

    Why would you think that?

    I thought the Illusion was prepaid Verizon only. I also thought that prepaid Verizon phones were not allowed on Pageplus.

    It seems like prepaid smart phones haven't been included in the ban like dumb phones available at a place like Walmart . Your point is a good one, and potential buyers should still be careful, but there have been several reports of people using the Illusion on PPC.

    I have a question regarding this phone and the Galaxy Proclaim that ST sells. Basically they are the same phone I think. Now, let me put my flame suit on. What is the difference in flashing the Samsung Illusion for use on PPC as opposed to just using the Galaxy Proclaim on ST? I mean they are both the same phone basically, both will be using the exact same Verizon network. Is it because with PPC they offer different price plan points as opposed to just the $45/month ST plan?

    I also noticed they added the Samsung Showcase which is basically a Samsung Fascinate. Nice. I wonder how long before they start adding Verizon LTE phones to their prepaid plans?

    Sorry to thread jack. Just making an observation.

    I am interested in using the Samsung Illusion with PagePlus; could you explain how to get a postpaid version of this phone? And how you went about getting PagePlus to work with it? Thanks so much...

    I'm having the same issues with the Verizon activation step with the Samsung Illusion (postpaid). What was the process you used to activate the phone on PP+? Were you able to skip the Verizon activation step to do the *22890 or use Verizon activation step to do the activation? Help would be much appreciated!

    Hit the Emergency Button on the Activate Screen.
    Type in *#83786633
    When you do this correctly...you will see the word "Softkey Enabled" at the bottom of the screen.
    Then hit the Home Button and do the OTA (*228 option 1).
    This should work for you guys.
