Verizon's new ban on non-Verizon devices and Page Plus is rumored to be
affected on September 1st (was supposed to be August 1st but it did not
Right now, one of the most popular new phones for Page Plus is the Boost
Moto G which is easily flashed to Page Plus (You cannot use the Verizon
prepaid Moto G on Page Plus).
The Boost Moto G sells for as little as $60. It's on sale now at Target
for $60 and they quickly sold out, though fortunately Best Buy will
match that price (normally $99). By comparison, the non-LTE GSM version
of the Moto G, costs $179. $60 is a heck of a deal for this phone.
The Moto G runs Kit Kat. The CDMA Moto G lacks LTE so it can still be
activated on Verizon MVNOs since Verizon is not yet allowing its MVNOs
to provide LTE service or to activate LTE capable phones. It's only got
8GB of Flash, and no SD card slot, so it's not a phone for power users,
but it has a fast processor and a good screen.
I currently have a Moto G LTE on an AT&T MVNO. However since I
occasionally travel to areas with no GSM coverage I decided that I would
keep one Page Plus account active for those occasions. An account on
Page Plus costs $30 per year to maintain ($10 every 120 days). I bought
the Moto G on Sunday and flashed it and activated it on Page Plus today.
