Following up on our previous reporting regarding the capability to freely activate Verizon iPhones on Page Plus after the relaxation of Verizon’s MVNO device activation rules, Page Plus has admitted that the initial confirmation first reported by PhoneNews.com after PagePlus approved the initial report for publication was in error and has fully admitted that the initial report was based on a miscommunication that reached multiple levels of the executive team before being caught and corrected.
The Kitty Wireless forum where the initial report originated and which we subsequently confirmed initially with Page Plus has issued the following statements on the matter, which also corroborate the situation:
As for the iPhone issue itself, please understand that there was a miscommunication at the top levels of Page Plus on this matter, which resulted in certain information being approved for release, and then that approval being retracted after it was already published. The iPhone is not allowed at this time. We have been told to say this: Should an iPhone be activated on the network, it could be subject to deactivation at any point in time in the future if the “powers that be” determine to do that.
While the miscommunication is regrettable, it does not automatically mean that iPhoneÂ activationÂ on Page Plus is prohibited, only that the possibility exists that service could be terminated at any time after initial activation, providing cold comfort for those looking to activate on Page Plus.
