Page Plus has confirmed to its dealer network that it is now allowing official and sanctioned activations of the Verizon iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S after years of dealer workaround for activation. This means that Page Plus customers have more options when it comes to 3G-only devices on Page Plus. Before today Page Plus customers could not activate the iPhone 4 or 4S on an official basis, as Page Plus cited restrictions from Verizon Wireless as the reason for the blockade and frequently sent warnings to dealers prohibiting such device activations on the service or risk penalties.
However, the previously mentioned dealer workarounds were just one small part of the puzzle, as the desire for the iPhone on Page Plus outweighed any major threats to dealers, dealers that were all too happy to activate such devices for the majority of customers as long as such activations were kept quiet. Currently, all models of the Verizon iPhone 4 and 4S are clear for activation as long as they have a clean MEID and were not reported lost or stolen. With Page Plus now under the auspices of Tracfone, the Verizon-powered virtual operator is slowly making positive (and many customers/observers would say much needed) changes to its service.
