With the increasing competitive pricing and features offered from prepaid phone providers, it almost doesn’t make sense anymore to get locked into a long-term cell phone plan and Page Plus knows this. For many cell phone users, prepaid plans is the most cost-effective way to go. In addition to not being tied to one cell phone provider forever, you don’t have to undergo the invasive credit checks either. Sounds like a win-win.
With Page Plus, not only do you have the benefit of no long term contract or invasive credit check, you can change your plan options on the fly. If you know you’re in for some heavy cell phone use one month and barely anything the next month, you have the option to adjust your monthly plan on an as-needed basis. Try doing that with your long-term contract carrier.
Texting and Data Usage
Page Plus offers the same texting and Internet data use options as contract carriers. No longer do you have to forego surfing the Internet just because you’re using a prepaid carrier. You can select the appropriate texting/data plans that suit your needs.
Page Plus Plan Options
Page Plus offer two types of plans, a monthly plan and a pay as you go plan. Monthly plans are usually more cost effective for heavier cell phone users. Pay as you go plans work better for those who use cell phones on an infrequent or sporadic basis.
Monthly plans on Page Plus range from $12 to $69.95 per month. With that you get anywhere from 250 to unlimited talk/text minutes. The details of their plans are listed as follows:
|Monthly Cost||Talk Minutes||Text/MMS*||Data|
If you don’t want to commit to a monthly plan you can opt for the pay-as-you-go plans, which range from $10 to $80 as shown below:
|Cost||Talk/Text||Cost Per Minute||Minutes Last For|
|$10||100 Minutes||$0.10||120 days|
|$25||416 Minutes||$0.06||120 days|
|$50||1000 Minutes||$0.05||120 days|
|$80||2000 Minutes||$0.04||365 days*|
Prepaid plans do not mean you have to stick with old-fashioned flip phones (unless you want a flip phone). Page plus offers a variety of phones ranging from the LG 220 flip phone (for a cost of $19.) to the higher tech Android powered Huawei Ascend Plus Smartphone for a cost of $149.95. In between they have several other phones, one of which is the LG Optimus Zip. The LG Optimus Zip is a particular favorite of those who just can’t get used to the touch screen technology and want a tactile QWERTY keyboard.
Once you’ve ordered and received your phone, you can purchase additional airtime three ways:
- Online by logging into your Page Plus account
- Through your Page Plus cell phone
- Purchase airtime from a Page Plus dealer .
Keeping Your Current Number, but Not Your Current Phone
If you currently have a cell number you wish to keep, you may port or transfer it over to your new Page Plus account. You can port your number but it is not recommended that you use your current cell phone. Page Plus only supports the phones they sell. If you decide to use your current phone, it might not work properly and Page Plus will not offer support.
One last thing, Page Plus operates on the Verizon network, so you can expect reliable service.
