best way to get an iPhone for Page Plus?

don't want to pay the $400+ for a 5S direct from Page Plus...what should I be looking for? Let's say a minimum of a iPhone 4...4s or 5 could work for the right price. What do I need to be looking for? What should I be suspicious of?

You need a Verizon 4 or 4s. I set up a 4s with TracFone. It will also work with Page Plus.

I have 4S on Pageplus, and another on TracFone. I got both units via Swappa. Excellent condition, good price. The Swappa experience was great. Swappa staff seem very hands-on to review all listings before they go live.

I had to use the pageplus customer service chat function to get it activated (straight self-service would not complete, plus I was porting a number, YMMV) but other than that no troubles.

You can also check KittyWireless for phone offers and assistance in signing up for pageplus. Good forums, too.

You can use any Verizon iPhone now, on PP. you can use the 4/4S on any of the plans, and the 5 and up can be used on the monthly plans, since they will be LTE phones and they require a monthly plan for all LTE phones.

Swappa might be a good place to get a phone. I would not recommend Kitty Wireless for PP, as they are trying to switch people over to their own MVNO called Puppy Wireless, and they typically charge for things that other dealers do for less or that you can get PP to do for free. I think you could get a better deal on Swappa, for the phone.

Apparently Swappa now gives you six months of buyer protection, I think you need to pay via PayPal, but I am not sure about that, but six months should be long enough to make sure the phone doesn't get blacklisted for non-payment.

I purchase an iPhone 5S from Swappa that I'm using with no problems on Page Plus.

You will also need a PagePlus sim card.

A 4S would feel too slow for me now that I have a 5S and I'm used to its size and better screen.

If clay is a low volume user and wants to be on one of the cheaper PayGo plans, a 4S is as high as he can go, unfortunately. As long as he is comfortable with at least the $29.95 plan, he can use a 5 and up.

Check out eBay seller Cellcow (or maybe it's Cell_cow)- see if there are any Verizon iPhones with a best offer option, and make a reasonable offer. Happy customer here.

You did before PagePlus got 4G, unless you wanted to pay to reprogram. See rgG's post.

Also consider a battery pack for a 4S that's been used for a few years, unless its internal battery was replaced already.

I got both mine and my wife's 5S from Swappa. No problems.
