    Do dual-mode phones need SIM card on PagePlus?

    I'm looking at Verizon DInc2 phones on eBay, and some of the listings specifically mention that the phones are being sold without SIM cards. I know that SIM cards are for GSM networks, and not for Verizon's CDMA network, but I'm wondering if a SIM card has to be installed for the phone to operate.

    I'd like to get verification that dual mode phones will function on P+ without a SIM. Can anybody confirm this?

    The Inc 2 will work fine on PPC without a global SIM card installed.

    You are fine to use the Global phones with no SIM card. You will be using the CDMA side of the phone with Page Plus. The SIM card is for the GSM side and is NOT needed for Page Plus. I have several phones including the Droid 2 Global, Droid 3 and Incredible 2 that have the extra GSM card to make them "Global" phones and it does not matter one bit if they have the GSM SIM card.
