    Yes but which one do you want it on? There are a few users who have startac's on pageplus, check the p+ forum.

    Maybe page-plus, but not Verizon. The StarTac (R.I.P.; great phone) does not have the e911 GPS support that VZW requires.

    I still have mine and it worked with Verizon, but hasn't been used in years because the extendable antenna kept braking off, so I replaced it with the LG VX8000 when it came out ages ago. The Golden Age of Cell Phones.

    Damn right it will work on the Page Plus network. I am an authorized Page Plus dealer, and I would be happy to activate them for free. There are other models (as well as timeport models) that will work, but they MUST be DUAL BAND (CDMA) and have a verizon logo on it (has to have already been on the network). Feel free to give me a call on my motorola startac 7868 at: (702) 379-4887 and I'll activate them. They do PRL updates and work anywhere verizon service exists (and many places they won't as the radio equipment in these is better than pretty much any phone available on the current market).

    I reactivated my p8767 (Timeport) on PP a while back, but wish I knew of someone who could still update the software on them. I want 2-way SMS on it!

    Sorry man, I know that it can be done. I cannot do it. 2 years ago my pal sent his to someone who had an (don't quote me on this) an emmi box? Either way, if you find someone with the equipment, the software can be updated. I have only seen it done once.

    My StarTAC is active on PagePlus. It has the updated firmware and does two-way SMS, BUT - it only lets me type in all caps. Not sure if this is normal...

    I'm curious... can an Alltel StarTac ST7868 be activated on PagePlus? It's not locked and will easily accept the Verizon PRL, but can PagePlus' activation system accept the ESN?

    Page Plus doesn't bother complying with those pesky government requirements/regulations?
