Verizon MVNO Page Plus Cellular announced that effective Nov 1, 2012, the $29.95 Talk and Text 1200 plan will include 250 MB of data per month, up from the current 100 MB. As before, the $29.95 plan also includes 1200 voice minutes and 3000 text messages.
The $39.95 Unlimited Talk n Text plan is also getting more data, 200 MB instead of the current 100 MB.
Page Plus is also lowering the overage and non-renewal rates on the Talk and Text 1200, Unlimited Talk n Text and The 55 (unlimited talk and text and 2 GB for $55/month) plans to 5¢/voice minute, 5¢/SMS or MMS and 5¢/MB. These rates apply when you use up your bucket of data (or minutes and texts on the $29.95 plan) or you plan fails to renew because on insufficient funds and currently vary from plan to plan. The new rates are at least as good as and in most cases significantly lower than current rates.
The changes where announced here and here on Howard Forums by Page Plus Marketing Manager, Denny Scher. The lowered overage rates take effect on Nov 1. The increased data allowances are effective with the next plan renewal after Nov. 2nd. There are no changes at this time to Page Plus' other plans, The 12 monthly plan and the pay as you go Standard plan. However Page Plus dealer Kitty Wireless posted on their forum today, "What's NEXT!?!?!? Is this in preparation for 4g? Only time will tell! Oh let the rumors fly baby!!!... Darn it I'm so excited about what's coming next.... I can hardly contain myself!!!!" so we can look forward to more customer friendly changes soon at Page Plus.
