( since i didnt buy it from verizon store) Or am i assed out, and have to buy a new phone? I heard if the phone wasnt a year old i still have a warrenty regardless where i purchased it from is that true? Thanks jus wondering i was curious. and SOOOO tired of using a magnet jus to txt. because since the touchscreen dosnt work i get " force close" wen i try to make a call or vieww my contacts it BLOOOWS!! :icon_evil:

    I'm pretty sure that whatever method that you used to flash it to page plus voided the warranty.

    And no, Page Plus is not associated with Verizon Wireless.

    Just flash it back to Verizon network long enough to replace it.

    Ahhh yes, warranty fraud...why didn't I think of that??
    Still won't work because Verizon will have 0 access to the account since it doesn't have a Verizon account.

    Yeah the only way that might work is if you got the droid on a contract originally and left that line active. And even then I doubt it.

    They roam off of SOME (small percentage) of our network..as do some other carriers, true. But, that in no way means that a Page Plus (or Straight Talk) customer is a Verizon customer at all. I was mainly pointing that out concerning the "owned by Verizon" statement, that's all.

    I'm not trying to nit-pick, but that's not true, either. They use VZW's entire network, including Alltel integration. It's not just roaming, Page Plus' network is Verizon's network.

    No, the billing systems are different, but they are somewhat still integrated. If you have an active phone on Page Plus, it can't be activated on VZW, and vice-versa.

    Verizon prepaid doesn't even use the entire network, nor would other prepaid "affiliates" of Verizon. I have personally (and professionally) converted customers from Page Plus to us (same model phone) and they have reported MUCH better service..?

    If you say so, but I'm almost positive it's all in their head. I've used both services, and there is no difference at all.
