NO, an unlocked Pre 2 will NOT work on Page Plus's network. Unlocking refers to a process allowing SIM card based devices to work on any GSM/UTMS/LTE network. These types of networks "generally" utilize devices that rely on SIM cards for customer and account identification purposes. A SIM card can be moved from one "unlocked" or carrier specific GSM/UTMS/LTE device to another bringing the customer phone number and account information along for the ride ( .... the ride from from GSM device to GSM device, to GSM device .... sorry, was a feeble attempt at making ingestion of this info a little less dry for you).
The silver lining:
Page Plus's network is based on CDMA/EVDO technology.
Page Plus devices I've been told, just so happen to have ESN's tied to Verizon's 3G EVDO and CDMA network. A couple of friends from the east coast visited recently and brought their recently activated Verizon Pre Plus's on Page Plus with them. They mentioned these Verizon Pre Plus's were purchased brand new, off contract direct from Verizon Wireless, They said Page Plus activated them right out of the box, no flashing was required.
I've seen them use those Pre Plus's but haven't done any further research on Page Plus as of yet. Don't know the company's origins, or the type of entity it currently is (for example whether it's an independent CLEC piggy backing on Verizon's 3G CDMA network, or possibly a wholly owned subsidiary of Verizon, that resulted from the transfer of another carrier's regional assets sometimes mandated by the FCC/FTC as a condition for approval of a recent merger or other business activity.
Since the Verizon Pre Plus can be activated on Page Plus, it stands to reason that a Verizon Pre 2 can be activated as well. It just so happens that Verizon began offering the Pre 2 this past week. Page Plus customers, there's your silver lining!
