    Pay as You Go plans -- Data or NOT data?

    I cannot figure out from their website if Page Plus Cellular, Pay as You Go plans include any data, or not. The site gives no contact email nor contact-form. Just I wonder, if a user uses their Pay as You Go, does this include data (assuming for web, internet) or not?

    Also, there is shown options to buy "extra" data, but this is RESTRICTED to the MONTHLY plans (two of them; not all of them). I am guessing this indicates a user on PayAsYouGo will not have data and cannot buy any data. Am I correct or wrong?

    Paygo has data but it's a ridiculously expensive 5 cents per megabyte. At that rate over lte, you will deplete your cash balance in an instant.

    If you have use paygo, just use it for talk and text(sms but no mms) and turn mobile data off. Or use it in a flip or feature phone without internet capabilities.

    Did you miss the More Info links?
    For the $10 Standard PIN, for example:

    I did see it, but became discouraged when I found this: http://www.pagepluscellular.com/plans/2gb-data-addon/
    meaning, this $10 Standard Data 2GB is not allowed for the non-monthly pay-as-you-go. I guess I will need to try to ask about this to a Page Plus Cellular representative. Still, if anyone here can clarify any of this, try to do so.

    That's correct. You can not do the add-on data with PayGo or the $12 monthly plan. So if you're anymore then an occasional brief data user or use MMS regularly, PayGo is not for you.

    Side note: I see they went back to .10 a minute on the 4G PayGo $10 pin like 3G, or was it always .10 on the $10 4G PayGo?

    That info is correct. If you're using the Standard Plan PINs (paygo) as a stand-alone plan, data costs $0.05/MB as described at that link I posted.

    If you click "More Info" on the Plans Chart, you see that on 4G, domestic calls are charged 6 cents per minute and sms messages are 5 cents each.

    It shows $0.06/min at http://www.pagepluscellular.com/plans/10-standard-pin/ for the 4G $10 Standard Plan PIN, which I thought was correct. Obviously, they have the plan chart on the plan page OR the plan detail page messed up. Typical, unfortunately.

    If page plus had the ability to add data to the pay go or 12 plan inexpensively, it would be the best plan out there. But I guess a plan like that makes way to much sense(and not enough $$$). Most people do very minimal texting or voice and find it fair to pay as you use it. But data gets consumed in mysterious ways.

    Thanks Boz1 and analogman, I see that now. I thought even the plan page once showed .06. (maybe age memory). We'll see which one ends up being right on the next renew. To date on a couple very low use phones I have on the $10 I'm hit at .06.

    Speedtalk?

    Speedtalk is actually quite reasonable with data and talk at $.02 per MB or per minute on T-Mobile network.
