This phone is world unlocked for the SIM. Can someone who owns this ph ans the following question. I'm in U.S. and want to use this phone for PagePlus (voice/text/3g data) and also use the SIM slot for H2O (AT&T) for voice/text only. I don't want to go with GSM and use a dual SIM adapter for 2 numbers.
DesiVibe said: PP is going to get LTE starting October. Perfect time to buy this phone and switch to PP when it gets LTE I would be pleasantly surprised if PP allows this phone, but I am doubtful that they will. Thus far, PagePlus has not allowed Verizon Prepaid phones to be activated on their network. Also, their 4G is not universal across their plans. It only applies to their monthly plans of $29.95 or more.
Very tempted to upgrade my verizon Galaxy Nexus on the unlimited plan. Reviews make it sound like it's not that huge of a difference though - even though it's a few years newer. Runs kitkat, but gnex does that with cyanogenmod. Maybe I should wait. Do'h! Too many good deals on this site. Must stay strong...
I expect there will not be a six month wait for Verizon LTE prepaid phones on PagePlus LTE.
Reason being, Verizon agreed not to lock/restrict the use of LTE device in order to license Band 13 from the FCC. Today you can take a Galaxy S III prepaid and use it immediately on a Verizon postpay account. I see no reason why PagePlus will be different.
Of course, Verizon could pull anything, won't know until we activate the first device in the field.
you might be on to something. I purchased a used Moto X in July that was used on the Verizon Prepaid side in May. I called Verizon postpaid in August and I was told that the phone was free to be activated with them. Therefore, it should clear to activate on PagePlus.
op, any further details on how you canceled? just ordered online, activated when you received it, then called in five days later and they refunded the pro-rated portion of the $45 and let you keep the phone, or? thanks!

Yup! They first said I needed to return the phone and I said I paid full price. Money returned to my cc no questions asked

Yup! They first said I needed to return the phone and I said I paid full price. Money returned to my cc no questions asked lovely, i might try this then, thanks! i'm in sudden need of a temporary replacement/backup phone, as my xperia zl had a magically known problem and died, and is now pending repair and amex extended warranty coverage.
Sorry to revive a thread, but just wanted more detail about getting the $45 charge taken off (or at least a prorated amount off). I'll buy this phone for my current contract plan if I can avoid paying the $45.
Desivibe, what exactly did you say? I have a feeling I won't have as much luck. Also, did you activate it as a prepaid phone, or on a contract at first?
yessir; i got the gs4 in white rather than the x (expandable sim, etc.). put the sim in, made a few calls and whatnot, then swapped to my T-Mobile sim. called a few days later, she asked for a pin i didn't have, so then she verified by asking for two of the numbers i called on it. i explained i bought it to try their service, decided it wasn't for me, and would like to cancel the rest of the month. rep then explained they don't do prorated refunds for prepaid, which i countered made little sense, as if i had auto-renewal/payments on and i tried to cancel the next day, they would tell me that i was simply out of luck, and i'd have to "use" the remaining time?
she seemed to agree this made no sense, then put me on hold for a bit, and came back and explained there was some request for credit she could put through for me, and that i'd hear back within ten business days with the result. i was incredulous at my chances after this, but about a week later i was surprised to see the full amount credited back to my original card.
also my original xperia zl was repaired and fully covered by amex, too but they messed up the rubber gasket/seal around the back, and now it makes my headphone jack really tight, so we'll see if it holds up. but so far, so good!
