Page Plus $55/Month Plan Getting 2 GB of Data, Effective June 6th

I just got word from big Page Plus online dealer, Kitty Wireless that Page Plus' "The 55" plan will soon include 2 GB of data, up from the current 1 GB. The change goes into effect with the plan's first renewal on or after June 5, 2012.

The 55 plan also includes unlimited voice calling and text messaging.  MMS picture messaging is also included but the data used for sending and receiving MMS messages does come out of the 2 GB allotment. If you use up your 2 GB data allotment, additional data is charged at 10¢/MB ($102.40/GB).

$55/Month is an very good price for unlimited voice and messaging plus a solid, no nonsense 2 GB of data. Page Plus runs on the Verizon network. AT&T MVNOs like Red Pocket charge $60 for a comparable plan and  Verizon's own unlimited prepaid smartphone plan costs $80 and only includes 1GB of data.

In other Page Plus news, starting yesterday, several users on Howard Forums reported being told By Page Plus customer service representatives telling that iPhones are now allowed on Page Plus provided they are used rather than brand new.  Up to now, the iPhone was officially not-allowed on Page Plus although many people have been able to activate and use them without problems. There's been no official announcement by Page Plus of a change in the iPhone policy so for now, I'm treating it as an unconfirmed rumor.

Update 5/31/2012: Page Plus' PR and social media manager posted on Howard Forums today that the iPhone ban is still in place and that customer support representatives who said otherwise misspoke.

  1. I can see this new plan really hurting Metro Pcs sales. Better phone selection, Better phone prices, Better coverage and 3G data speeds is the difference between Page Plus and Metro Pcs. Why would you choose Metro Pcs and their coverage over Page Plus and Verizon's coverage? Sure Metro Pcs has 4G LTE, But it only runs at 3G speeds. On average Metro's 4G LTE is between 1Mb - 2Mb Down and 1Mb - 2Mb up. I get those speeds with my Verizon Droid X on 3G, LOL.

  2. at then end of day non contract is the way to go. this deal is a good deal for cdma and people that want verizon's superior network. im on the t-mobile monthly 4g plan which this plan is similar to tmo monthly 4g $60 plan with unlim talk and text and 2g of 4g speeds though. i would rather sim gsm over cdma because i can always switch phones without payinog activation fees but this plan with i-phone aint bad

    1. Mloudt, How are you liking that T-Mobile Monthly 4G service? Do you have any issues with call quality, dropped calls, slow data etc? Which phone are you using and where are you using it? I was with T-Mobile a year ago on contract and using the MyTouch 4G (Awesome Phone) here in Metro Atlanta and service was really good. Especially with 4G data speeds. I was averaging between 6-7 Mbps Down and 2-3 Mbps up. I am now with Verizon on contract with my mothers family plan due to job layoff. A friend is also with T-Mobile and using an MyTouch 3G Slide and he gets between 2-3 Mbps Down and 1-2 Mbps Up on average also and that is not even a 4G phone. For sure T-Mobile service is better then Sprint's overall, But people still for some reason choose Sprint over T-Mobile.

  3. How about adding some data to the $29 plan. It should be at least 300mb of data. 500 would be better.

  4. Potentially dumb question here, but can you take a iPhone 4s from AT&T and have it work on page plus? I'm under the impression that the new iPhone is both GSM and CDMA. Is that the case? Is that also the case for the older iPhone 4?

    It's a wierd option considering only used phone. What if you bought an unlocked new iPhone 4S from Apple? I don't get the "used" requirement.

    1. No, the GSM iPhones have their CDMA radios disabled. I don't think anyone's figured out how to enable them so far.

      Only the 4S has the dual CDMA/GSM radio.

      Also, a couple of hours ago, Page Plus' press spokesman denied that the iPhone ban had been lifted.

  5. I'm very skeptical about purchasing the iphone and servicing it through Page Plus, due to the various reviews it received, as far as, being shut off unexpectedly and etc. Is this a good idea or what?
