    I am assuming it was flashed from VZW to PP?

    I am not sure why you needed to flash the phone. Is the phone a PP branded phone? Flashing it makes no sense if it is. Depending on what it was flashed with could answer your questions. I am thinking a possible incorrect firmware flash.

    No the phone is not PP. I ordered it from eBay. Pageplus couldn't activate it because it's 4g therefore I had to get it flashed to 3g but I didn't receive 3g only 1x

    So what carrier was the phone meant to be on?

    What I am trying to figure out is what could possibly be wrong with it. 4G should not have anything to do with their CDMA activation process (to my knowledge). I am not too familiar with PagePlus, but I am assuming it is a CDMA network (some research may be needed).

    The LG Lucid is a Verizon phone. It could be something as simple as flashing a new modem to the phone to talk with PagePlus' network properly.

    That's what I'm not understanding either because I use to have an kg revolution which is also a 4g phone an it was converted to 3g. I recently checked on YouTube an I found videos of people who has the same phone an they flashed it to Pageplus an received 3g so it is possible to do.

    I have no doubt that it is capable. I just do not know enough about PP or VZW to tell you how to do it. I also don't have the software necessary to do it even if I could. I am pretty sure, but not positive, that you need CDMA Workshop to do this. It totals something like $350 USD to purchase, which I do not have kicking around.
