Review of Page Plus Prepaid Phones
Based in Ohio, Page Plus offers both monthly and usage-based plans ranging from $10 to $80. Page Plus Anytime is basically a side service that allows you to pursue the same plans, but using prepaid cards instead.
The only requirement is that you have a fully activated Page Plus handset. There’s also the additional option of using Page Plus Anytime cards to essentially ‘refill’ your standard Page Plus plan.
- Lots Of Features
- International Direct Dialing
- Pay For What You Use
Page Plus Anytime offers four unique monthly plans.
The first option retails for $12.00 and entitles you to 250 minutes of talk time, 250 SMS and MMS messages, and 10MB of data. It may be used as a plan, or it may be used to in effect ‘refill’ your Page Plus plan in case you run out of plan minutes/texts/data too early in the month.
The next one up costs $29.95 and upgrades the minutes and texts to 1200 and 3000, respectively. The one above it sells for $39.95 and offers unlimited calls, texts and mobile texts. Unfortunately, the data remains capped at 250MB. If you want more data, however, you can opt for the $55.00 plan. This maintains unlimited talk/text, but increases your data up to 2GB.
Usage Based Plans
Page Plus Anytime also offers usage-based, page-as-you-go plans, but they only cater to voice users. They unfortunately lack any support for text messaging and Web access. What you have instead is a really cheap way to stay connected, assuming of course you already own a Page Plus phone.

Help & Support
Support for Page Plus Anytime is extraordinarily limited. You can only contact them by email.
Page Plus Anytime is somewhat of an anomaly. It’s not a wireless provider itself. It’s just a side company. Mind you, it offers a useful function for those users who own a Page Plus phone. If you don’t own one, however, then this company has nothing to offer you.
