    Will a phone without a Verizon SIM card work on PagePlus?

    I bought a used Incredible 2 on ebay and when the phone arrived the Verizon SIM card was not included. I've been looking around and what I've found is that in theory my phone should still be able to work on PagePlus because the SIM card is used for Global purposes such as traveling to another country. I just wanted to get an answer from the professionals and see if you guys know anything else.

    Thanks,

    Tony

    Yes, your phone should work perfect. No SIM card needed.


    Sent from Sheogorath's Computer which is an HP. So, hah! I got an HP! What do you got? Oh.. a Mac...

    Tony,

    Absolutely it will work fine without the SIM card. That is for the GSM side for international use. When you are using Page Plus you are on CDMA so it doesn't matter at all. My Droid 2 Global is the same way and has never had the Verizon SIM card in it. You are fine!

    That is correct. The SIM card for the Inc2 is just for global use, and it must be unlocked to do that. However, it will work perfectly on PPC with no SIM card and without being unlocked.

    Can you unlock without a verizon SIM in it? Or do you need to have one installed, unlock, then use any sim....

    I don't know any details except I've read that people buy an unlock code from eBay sellers or elsewhere.

    No, you don't need the Verizon sim card to unlock a phone. Sometimes you will even need to insert a non-verizon sim card before you can unlock it with a code.
