Introduction: How to Flash Any Verizon Phone to PagePlus

In this instructable I'm going to teach you how to flash any Verizon phone to PagePlus quickly and easily.
This doesn't require editing files, connecting your phone to your computer or looking up strange numbers, and can be done by nearly anyone.

Step 1: What You Need

You'll need the following items:
-A computer
-An E-Mail account
-A Verizon phone
-$7 (To activate, only if not porting a number)

Step 2: Setting Up With PagePlus

PagePlus does most of their sales through dealers, one well known dealer is Kitty Wireless, and that's what we'll be using today.

New accounts with new numbers:

Start by going to this link . Now, it's going to ask you for your e-mail address, your ESN (Electronic Serial Number) and your ZIP code. Go ahead and enter your e-mail and ZIP. Now go to your phone, take off the battery cover, remove the battery, and look at the label. Look for a number labeled "ESN (DEC)" Now enter that into the page, and submit. You then go through the normal process of checkout. Pay the $7 and wait for an e-mail.

New accounts with numbers to be ported:

This method uses Page Plus's website: Start by going to this link. Click the "Switch to Page Plus and port your number now" link and follow the instructions it gives you. When it asks for your ESN (Electronic Serial Number), look for the number labeled "ESN (DEC)" under your phones battery and enter that. You shouldn't have to pay anything when using this method, when going through Kitty Wireless you'd be spending about $25. DO NOT Follow the programming instructions on the page linked from here, as it's only a patch through to a specific menu and doesn't always work. Use the instructions in the next step.

Step 3: Programming the Phone

Once you've got the e-mail, turn your phone on.
Now go to the dialer where you'd normally make a call. Enter this number *228 (Asterisk - Two - Two - Eight) and press call.

You'll hear a voice say "Welcome to Verizon Wireless Programming", select 1 for english or 2 for spanish.

You'll then hear "on hold" music and a message will appear on your phone. Just wait until it tells you the phone is programmed.

Now restart the phone, and you'll now have PagePlus on your phone! You MUST make an outgoing call now, in order to activate the phone. Don't worry about having money, you get $2.00 free (If using Kitty Wireless method without porting).

You can now use the Kitty Wireless website to add money to your account and manage your phone.

I hope you enjoyed this instructable, and if you need any help, feel free to ask in the comments.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 verizon and I wanted to switch it to straight talk and it is compatible with the service just when I go to the coverage it says they don't service in my area which is a lie because I've had straight talk just with a Trac phone. How much is it to flash my phone to page plus? And will it work?

    I know someone who flash phones to (Page Plus),(Straight Talk),(Boostmobile) "Remotely" which means you don't have to mail your phone anywhere... Its For Any Phone Except "Iphones" you can email me at for more info (veyonder.sankey@gmail.com)

    I have a Samsung Intensity 2 Verizon phone I ported over to Page Plus. The browser didn't work but the mobile email did for a couple of months, then quit. How do I get it going again? Page Plus customer service did everything they could, and said a dealer would have to work on it. How do I flash it over to Page Plus? Just Askin.

    What if I have a phone through page plus already and I want to switch my number to another phone? Ive tried on the website where it says to switch phones, but every time I try all it does is give me an error message. Can you help? Thanks.
