I really enjoyed having this phone. Great price....

I really enjoyed having this phone. Great price.Read More
After 2 days on the phone with Verizon who was very helpful but still they needed to get Blackberry to do their part Blackberry finally delivered the message that they didn't recognize this phone and could not activate it. They suspected it was made for a foreign market? Total waste of my time.Read More
I will hope RIM will come up with an upgraded FLIP. Very nice phone.Read More
I bought this phone to replace my current phone which did not work. It was to soon for an upgrade by 2 months and Verizon was not willing to budge even though I have been a customer for YEARS! The insurance on the not working phone has $$ deductible to this was the cheapest option. What a pleasant surprise when the phone arrived and it works well. Long and short I will not buy insurance any longer as it is more cost effective to buy straight from Overstock.com.Read More
Questions & Answers

Greetings angel107123aolcom ~ your question is partially open-ended. I currently have = "Prepaid" service thru Verizon after moving from verizon Contract/Postpaid side roughly 10 years ago. I can't provide you 100% accuracy what VZW requires for their "Contract" customers now, because I am w/ prepay division. However, I was told directly by a Verizon customer service rep. when I was considering this exact same model phone for use on Prepaid plan options 7-8 months ago. Blackberry 8230 device here is considered a smartphone by verizon -&- Does require a Data plan added if wanting to use this handset w/ "Prepay" service thru Verizon....period. As I said, info given me was over 1/2 year ago & new revisions possibly could have changed by now. Best action for you, simply contact verizon & speak directly to an agent who can verify current info you want. "Page Plus" = is a prepaid cellular provider (contracts thru verizon) which uses Verizon coverage. Not totally certain, but Page Plus may not require a data plan on this phone w/ their service. Reminder....device here is older Blackberry model + CDMA only network compatible = No SIM card used here.

Do you need a data plan for this phone to operate? Just looking for calling/texting. Not looking to add data plan at this point. Not in upgrade period yet and current phone is on the fritz.
Please note that the package only includes the device and necessary accessories. A SIM card is not included. In order to access the phone''s functions, it is necessary to have a contract with the wireless carrier Verizon.
I am wanting to use this with Page Plus Cellular---they claim they use Verizon coverage/towers. Could I use this with the Page Plus prepaid service. I understand the phone I choose has to NOT USE A SIMS CARD. Thanks for help.
This is a Verizon phone, so it may work. You should check with your cellular provider for confirmation.
