Page Plus is a prepaid mobile carrier. It offers nationwide service through one of the largest networks in the country. Along with extensive nationwide 4G LTE coverage, there are a variety of pay-as-you-go plans available through Page Plus.
Page Plus Wireless Plans
Page Plus has a plan for all uses and budget types. If you want a basic offering for emergency or spartan use, then you can choose plans based on the number of minutes you plan to chat. This gives you versatility in that you pay for the features you want. Best of all, if you need to adjust plans you can do so at any time.
If you have a smartphone and want access to data, Page Plus has three plans available to you. Each plan features unlimited talk and text. Furthermore, depending on the plan you choose, you'll have access to a specified amount of data. In the event you exceed the data allowance, Page Plus will slow your connection speeds down from 4G LTE to 2G.
At these lower speeds, you might notice a difference in performance as it pertains to streaming music, video and more. You do have the option of renewing your plan early and paying the overage rate to access more data.
However, there's no carryover data. This means if you pay for the plan with 10GB of 4G LTE data allowance and only use half of it, the remaining balance won't carryover to the next month. Therefore, it's important to monitor data usage monthly and make adjustments as needed. Currently, Page Plus doesn't offer an unlimited data plan.
The carrier also offers an annual plan. For a fixed price, you have access to 2,000 voice minutes. This is great in that you don't have to remember to pay monthly to maintain service, making it a great option if you plan to use your phone occasionally. However, Page Plus doesn't make it easy to buy this plan. Instead of having an option to buy online, you must visit its website then find a retail partner who sells the annual service card.
After reviewing its website, I didn't find where it offers family plans. This makes Page Plus a less cost-effective option if your plan was to do a family share plan with data, where the cost per line would be less relative to doing one line of service.
Page Plus does offer international calling options. You can buy its $9 global calling card. With the card, you receive rates as low as 2.5 cents per minute when you call landline or mobile phones internationally. What's beneficial about this option is you can add it to your plan and the balance rolls over as long as you keep it active.
Page Plus Phones
Page Plus possesses a huge inventory of phones including some of the latest models from Apple, Samsung, and Google. If you choose to buy a more expensive model, you can pay in full or do leasing through SmartPay. This is where if you qualify, you pay the phone off in 24 monthly installments.
Meanwhile, you can choose less expensive alternatives as well. Page Plus has a good selection of phones for under $50. It also offers discounts on select models we'll get into later in this review.
Page Plus Phone Insurance
Similar to other prepaid providers, Page Plus doesn't offer cell phone insurance as part of its monthly plan offerings. Should you want this coverage you can go to a cell phone insurance provider to receive it.
Page Plus Phone Activation
When you are ready to start service you can do so by several means. First, you can visit its website to activate service. When you do this, you have your choice to activate with a new phone number or to keep your current phone number. To keep your current phone number, follow the prompts to complete the port-in process. You can also contact its customer service department, who can help you activate service on your new phone.
Page Plus SIM Card
Page Plus requires the use of one of its SIM cards to receive 4G LTE service. It has three different sizes available to correspond with 4G device requirements. To see which SIM card you need, you can visit its website, select the shop option, and scroll to the bottom of the page to choose the SIM card. You'll have to do some research to find out which SIM card you need as the help section on Page Plus's website is far from helpful. The best way to do this is to conduct a Google search such as, "which size SIM card do I need for an iPhone 7?" You can also pop the current SIM card out of your phone and choose the right size based on your findings.
Page Plus Deals, Promotions & Discounts
Page Plus offers discounts on some of the phones in its inventory. You can find which models are discounted by visiting its website and selecting the shop tab. Page Plus groups its promos towards the top of the page. Concerning plans, you receive a discount on the monthly rate when you sign up for auto pay. This is where you have a credit or debit card on file and you authorize Page Plus to charge it each month when it's time to renew your service.
Page Plus Customer Service
Page Plus doesn't deliver the finest customer service as evidenced by its reviews. Common problems included data not being loaded onto the service plans correctly, misapplied payments, and poor service from the support team. If you are a brave soul and want to experience this "service" then you can by contacting its customer support via phone, by opening a ticket online or you can mail them your inquiry. It also has an online support section with answers to common questions.
Page Plus Review Recap
Page Plus delivers affordable phones and plans to match most budgetary needs. At the same time, the lack of customer support, coupled with the alarming problems with service, indicates that it might be best to avoid this provider, as it offers more headaches than it's worth. You can find better prepaid providers with great service at the same price.
