If you have a smartphone you can download text blocker apps. If you have a non-smart phone you can't block a number. You can try and reply with 'STOP' to the text message. If not, try calling the number that is texting you, or search it online finding out who it is. I am willing to guess that others have had the same problem from the same number.
Linda, you can buy an iPhone 5 from Straight Talk (Walmart) that will work with Page Plus. It must be an iPhone 5, not 5C or 5S. That will be the CDMA version. My wife has it on page plus and it work as you would expect any other phone, but is just newer.
You having one bad experience doesn't mean they are thieves. It is unfortunate that you were given incorrect information, but this is a good opportunity to realize that research beforehand might have been helpful.
See this link to a different thread where someone MAY be able to help you:
This is a forum based on using Android phones. I do not know how contacts transfer on 'feature phones' because typically people at the Verizon store would do that. Android phones use Gmail to sync your contacts. I know that's off your question, but that's all I know.
What is a date, in the context that you're referring to? I am not sure what you're talking about.
The Page Plus cellular data service isn't different from Verizon's cellular data service so this will not be affected. If you have a 3G phone using "Square Up" on Verizon, then it will be exactly the same as long as you're in the Page Plus coverage map.
You would have to get it flashed. Being that it is a Windows phone I don't know how accessible Windows Phone flashers are.
Jose, does this have anything to do with Page Plus? You're on a Page Plus thread....
Flashing is reprogramming a phone. You take whatever service its supposed to use, then you reprogram it to work on a different service. Not all phones can be flashed, and not all phone services will accept a flashed phone from other services.
They do not have a hot spot device to use...or at least I haven't heard of anyone getting a hot spot to activate on their service. I'm not quite sure what to suggest because if you're only looking for the use of the hot spot, you're a very small part of the people that use Page Plus, and therefore they probably won't openly accept hot spots.
Consider using a Freedom Pop hot spot if you really need one, even though Freedom Pop is based off Sprint's cellular coverage. Its the cheapest 'off contract' hot spot i know of.
Darlene, I don't know where your daughter will be going, but she will only be roaming if she is outside Page Plus's coverage map that can be found on their site. I would suggest going there to look and see if it is covered. If it is a university, then I am pretty confident Page Plus will have service there without roaming.
I know but it is rumored to be for Verizon Prepaid only. We need an open CDMA version.

I'm looking forward to more/better voice control. I know the Moto X already took a huge leap forward this year, but Google Now is getting a lot better very quickly. I like the idea of hands free use while driving, cooking, and working out.
I don't need a more powerful smartphone, I need a smarter phone.
If this phone is open for CDMA MVNOs and not just Verizon Prepaid, then it will blow up in the Prepaid market. Having the ability to flash phones now, a $180 phone will absolutely dominate. Considering if you're prepaid, you're either paying retail for a phone or buying a used one off craigslist, this is a steal. Most decent not-too-old phones on CL are easily over $200 and usually closer to $300

My friend has this same case for her Moto X. Its pretty awesome. The Speaker is cool too.
Yeah you and I are quite different. I NEVER drop my phone and it is second nature for it to go in a certain pocket. To me, I can't imagine it any different, but then there is you...and the rest of the smartphone world that don't share my neuroses.
Brooks, I am an engineer also and have my dedicated pockets like you do. My right pocket is for my phone, chapstick and flash drive. My left pocket is for my keys and wallet.
Another point I don't think I saw you make is that the screen protectors get beat up and it REALLY takes away from the appearance of the screen. People are in a race for 450+ dpi and yet they put a grainy screen cover on it that ruins it.
I don't use a case either anymore. Do you?
I don't know how it appears for Verizon customers, but texting a Verizon customer from Page Plus costs 1 text message on your plan. The $30 plan has 3000 texts, and any plan above that has unlimited texts, so probably nothing for you to worry about.
I didn't find much on their website regarding dealers around me, but a lot of the time the dealers are at the local mall. We have a couple dealers in our mall in kiosks in the center. I would suggest looking there, or similar places.
Regarding lump payments, there is no possibility of that, however you can set yourself up on Autopay/Renew. It will charge you every month and automatically add the next PIN to your account for the next month.
I have two phones on Page Plus and even though you treat each phone number as its own account, you can link multiple accounts to one email address/login info. Each PIN renewal is its own transaction, so if you did a $30 plan and a $55 plan each month, you would not have one transaction for $85, you'd have them each for their own amount.
In addition, you can stack PINs, which means you can prepay for a few pins and have them autorenew each month. I'm not sure how many you can stack in a row though. The problem with stacking PINs that I see is that if you use up your monthly data too soon, and you call page plus to have them manually add a new PIN before your renewal date, you lose whatever you have stacked. Just sayin. Good Luck.
If your son is on a contract on Verizon, you will have an early termination fee from Verizon if you cancel your plan early.
I would suggest finding a local Page Plus dealer that will help you through the process. That's what I did when I switched. They told me each step I needed to do, and they told me what they would do. It helps you know what's going on and what is involved in the process.
