So we are going with Selectel, and when we look for a gently used phone or refurbished 3G cell phone on ebay, does it just need to say Verizon or unlocked as well? Please advise, thank yoU! KP
I will look for clean esn, thanks. if its from a reputable big time seller on ebay, it would say prepaid wouldn't it?
What is your budget? If we can get an idea of what your looking to spend we can better assist you. Also are you looking for a 3g phone with a keyboard? Please let us know.

http://wiki.howardforums.com/index.p..._and_Page_Plus for a list of phones that work and don't work on Page Plus. You can apply this same list to Selectel Wireless (except, at one point someone from Selectel (or a dealer) said they didn't accept Blackberries, but others said they did). What can confuse the issue, however, is that some models were sold both for prepaid or the regular Verizon network. Actually I think this is the more comprehensive list ... http://wiki.howardforums.com/index.php/Page_Plus
(Both of these appear to be a little dated. Probably best just to ask about a particular model.)
I tried to get a Blackberry activated on Selectel and they said "no". This was a direct call to Selectel and not a dealer. Probably should have tried a dealer also.
I just bought an LG VS660 off of eBay. Works fine on Selectel $10 flex card.

Anyway I went forward with my port and activation and it has been smooth and I am more than satified. There are some quirks, and I don't know f it is because I am running 7.1 and is OS specific. I was expecting to have to install service books for everything but some things do work on 3G:
- MMS and App World work "out of the box" on 3G
- Maps wasn't working initially, but now it is partially workng on 3G
- Sometimes the BB browser works on 3G, sometimes it doesn't
- Some apps work on 3G, others only work over wifi
Since most of the things I care about work "out of the box" I am not in a rush to do any modifications (besides, all the links I clicked on for page plus service books are dead!). Would they even differ if "Selectel service books" come to fruition? I will say the quirks are weird! Again, t may be because I am on 7.1. I do miss the email, but I installed logicmail and it's not bad.
Probably more info than you need, but I hope I shed some light. Anyone else been successful in activating a BlackBerry on Selectel? Maybe I was just a fluke!
[QUOTE=october262;15191559]you also need to be carefull when buying a used phone off of ebay/craigslist because if the phone is reported lost/stolen you will have a hard time trying to get the phone activiated. it is best to have the phones ESN checked out before you buy.[/QUOT
So I was looking at their phones (Selectel) they sell - and going by that list. Only I want a gently used one to save some cash since I have to buy 2 phones (one for my husband). So I find a top rated seller on ebay with 99.8% feedback score, clean esn is listed. even a warrenty for 11.99 for one year. Any comments? Am I wrong ?
Only Im having trouble finding a droid x2 (unless there is another name for this phone? They have all kinds of Motorola Smart Phones. yes I want a smart phone, 8mp camera, GPS, memory card slot, touch screen (no keyboard) I was wanting to look at all Motorola 3G smartphones and the date they came out (in order) - where can I go to find this? thx for your help. KP
