Help with Manual Programming
Manual Programming Tips
This page is here to assist customers in manually programming their devices when Over-the-Air Programming does not work.
This page is NOT for the faint of heart. If you are not technically savvy, if you do not understand what a PRL is, or how to use basic software functions with a data cable, this page is NOT for you.
Basically, if you don't speak technical-phone-ese, navigate away from this page now.
This page is here to help you with manually programming your phone. Let me explain a few things.
You can, technically, use ANY CDMA
DEVICE on Page Plus Cellular, from any company,
as long as
it is NOT a Prepaid Cellular Device that you purchased in a box store such as Walmart or Target. For instance, you can take a phone from Sprint, US Cellular, MetroPCS, Cricket, etc. and use it with TALK and TEXT on Page Plus.
In order to do that, you need to be
able to manually program that phone. This is where you need
to spend time doing research, downloading software, and installing files onto the phone to make it work.
Here is a basic outline of the
steps needed to make a phone work with Talk & Text on Page Plus.
These are NOT SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS for any one type of handset. These are vague, overall,
general instructions. You will need to do your own research using this as a guideline.
1. Get a USB data cable for your phone.
2. Spend time on google.com and on forums such as kittyforums.com or howardforums.com to find out which software you will need to modify your phone.

CDMA Workshop will generally work
with all types of phones.
(CDMA Workshop is a commercial piece of software that costs $108 USD.)
3. Run the software, install the Page Plus PRL (Preferred Roaming List) file. This file tells your phone how to find Page Plus Signal.

4. Once the PRL is installed, you will need to modify the:
MDN (Mobile Directory Number)
MIN (Mobile Identification Number) and
SID (System Identification Number)
- The MDN is your phone number.
- The MIN is a special number assigned by Page Plus.
You can get your MIN using our FREE Status Report form, located here.
- The SID is the Page Plus SID within your area. (Page Plus can give you this, or you can find it using one of our links on this page below.)
Your SID is based on your geographic location. Click here to see the SID List Site
After steps 1-4 are done, you should be able to place a call out from your device, receive a call into your device, and send/receive TEXT messages. Web, data, picture messaging, video messaging, etc. will NOT work.

I do apologize for the
inconvenience with this issue. I would love to be able to offer personal
programming assistance to each and every customer, unfortunately, there are just so many different
types and models of phones out there that I would never be able to keep up.
You should create an account on our
and post in the technical
forum to work with our other forum members for assistance :-)
