BTW there is a way to receive incoming text messages for free- get an overseas prepaid phone for as little as 10 Euros per year and all your incoming text messages globally will be free.


I use GoogleVoice for 99% of my texting which costs exactly nothing.

Yeah, if you are at home. I use texting only minimally, only on my prepaid every blue moon. On my main cell phone it is disconnected . Smile

That depends on your plan. Some plans allow for free calls within the network.

May be a stupid question, but I can't seem to find the answer on Pageplus faq's. Are mobile to mobile calls free and if not are carrier to carrier calls free or do you have to use your minutes?


All minutes are billed, incoming, outgoing, mobile to mobile it's all the same. I've been a customer for a couple years and been quite happy.

Thank you! Very Happy Still a great deal. The 12 is looking real good. Even if I happened to go over, the per minute rate is still low.

The wife and I have been on PagePlus for a year or so now and love it. We were both on their $29.95 1200 plan until this month when I switched to the $12 250 plan........left the wife on 1200 Smile I am sure you can all guess why!

Most any phone which has been on Verizon will work on PagePlus so if you have a phone laying around which also has WiFi you can make good use of it to make calls via that when available. I am almost always around a WiFi link so I use that most of the time except when driving.

Page Plus Cellular http://www.pagepluscellular.com/Plans.aspx has some very decent prices. It uses the Verizon network and you can bring your own Verizon phone to be activated on Page Plus or buy one directly from them. You could probably find a used Verizon phone for cheap, possibly free if you have any friends with Verizon service that have upgraded and tossed the old phone in a drawer

I have been using them for a second cell phone for years with no problems.

There is a $12 a month plan with 250 minutes and 250 texts as well as several options available.


Thanks for the heads-up on Page Plus Cellular. I am a very light cell phone user, but recently ported my Tracfone number to Page Plus. I am using The 12 plan, and like having Data available, if needed. I usually have the Data service turned off, and use WFi.

I bought a year-old LG Ally for cheap on eBay. I had been using an LG Ally for WiFi only, for the last year.

They don't force you to buy a data plan like the big boys?

They have various plans, including the $10 voice-only plan (good for 120 days). They also have a text-addon to the voice plan, but The 12 is cheaper, for my expected usage.

The 12 plan comes with 10 MB of Data for a month, and $.20 per MB above that (?). I like to have it available, but I am used to seeking out WiFi hot spots. I will have to monitor how I use it.
