    Default Page Plus carrier ???

    I am about to hook up my newly purchased Blackberry Pearl 8130 to my Page Plus account. I know I will not be able to use all the blackberry functions (e-mail, internet ect.) but for the time being this will serve my purpose. I plan on using my phone for a file storage device and to make and recieve phone calls. Will I be able to do anything esle?
    I just wondered if any one else was doing something similar?
    Please e-mail at twosix26@wowway.com if you have done this.
    thanks,
    Ed

    Um, the titlebar says Verizon Wireless.

    Page Plus is a small mobile telephony/bandwidth reseller out of Ohio.

    You'd be better served checking out their Website. In the meantime, I think I might go ask about MetroPCS & Cricket details in the AT&T forums.

    They are an MVNO, or Mobile Virtual Network Provider. MVNOs don't own or construct any network infrastructure - instead, they resell network capacity of established carriers.

    PagePlus does offer data connectivity - it isn't cheap, though.

    It is not a fluke - Page Plus offers data connectivity. In fact, data is required for a BlackBerry to operate correctly & fully.

    While the major carriers tend to require a data package, Page Plus doesn't seem to offer one, nor do they seem to offer any form of blocks - but data will be charged to you.

    Default PagePlus offers data

    PagePlus unlimited phone and texting plan provides 20MB of data each month. After that they charge $0.60 / MB (according to their website).

    I'm interested in the plan and looking to get a smartphone without the expensive data plans the other carriers require (smartphone I'm looking at connects to internet via WiFi when available).

    Although I don't think you can disable over the air functionality (to keep costs in check) the PP rep I talked to said if your account balance is zero then data will not work until you replenish. So..... if you replenish your account on the days needed to renew your plan each month it should be only $40 / month, right?

    PP says not to count on Picture Mail or internet working if it's not one of their phones. She said Wifi also wouldn't work, but I didn't have a lot of confidence she understood what I was asking.

    LOL.. A Blackberry on a Prepaid account. Drug dealers gotta keep up with their business...

    Crack BIS
    Crack Calendar
    Crack Sync w/ Outlook
    Crack Memo Pad
    Crack BB Messenger

    Oh wait - wouldn't this be considered a REAL CrackBerry?

    Poor Prepaid customers - their accounts will be deflated in a day once that BB gets connected!

    So is this possible? Unclear answers all over the web. I am trying to get it to work with just email (IMAP with Gmail or push somehow). It's working for me, appears the BIS is working too, though I have read VZW will pull that over the weekend when the run their scripts for legit BIS accounts.

    I like how this is a obvious BS thread. Everyone posting in here has 1-2 posts and is obviously the same person.

    Just another attempt at free advertising for yet another two-bit MVNO.

    C'mon guys, I am just a n00b user, want a picture of my BB? how would it promote the carrier if my BB BIS service is going to get shut down. I'm just looking for some help. See my other posts.

    The sentiments, at least on my end, were directed toward the overall tone of the thread - not you in particular.

    Regardless, this is the VZW forum - questions & assistance requests for getting devices to work on carriers other than VZW need to be in the correct forum - not here. There are forums for all major carriers, plus an "Other Carrier" forum. Page Plus would fall under Other.

    Dont believe the hype.. Pageplus is crap when it comes to BB's. Its works until VZ runs the script and see you using a BB on PP then you are shut down and restriced to only calls and text!

    That's mostly wrong.
    Pageplus doesn't pay for RIM server use so Verizon isn't going to let them piggyback on their access for free. So yes, they cut your *** off for freeloading. That doesn't mean you can't use a BB on it though. That's like saying you can't use a computer to access the internet without going through AOL.

    You have to use a hacked up service book to use TCP/IP for data rather than going through BIS. You won't be able to use BBM but everything else that uses straight data rather than going through BIS-BES will run. So the web broswer, non BB push email, MS, and BB Maps are good to go

    So as far as prepaid its a reasonable option to use a BB. You don't get that option using a Tmobile prepaid or Inpulse.
