Do let us (I.P. Daley, in particular) know how Page Plus works after the America Movil acquisition closes. America Movil is not an owner/provider preferred by the Superguide, though there really doesn't seem to be a better option for repurposed Verizon phones right now.
Actually, a bit of news slid under the radar from back in late June in regard to this (which just goes to show that I really should keep up with the FCC website more). The streamlined approval process for this acquisition has been suspended pending full review by the Executive, specifically the DoJ, FBI, and DHS:http://www.fcc.gov/document/streamlining-removal-domestic-transfer-assets-pageplus-tracfone
I have not heard any new information since, but it appears the government may have finally sat up and noticed that the fourth largest telecommunications company in the world, which has a significant problem with antitrust issues in Latin America, has been slowly buying up and eliminating MVNO competition in this country.
I have no faith that the acquisition will actually be struck down, but it's nice to know they're at least considering a bit of extra scrutiny and delaying the process.
Meanwhile, yes... TalkForGood is dead dead dead. There's still Next G Mobile and Selectel (not that I'm necessarily recommending any of these)... but they're all very young (yes, Selectel's been around for a while as a PPC reseller, but the direct sale of services is new), and Verizon MVNOs appear to have the hardest time establishing on the market for a variety of reasons. There's a couple others as well, but I'm not going out on limbs anymore with new MVNOs. I got lucky with Ting and burned with TFG. The statistics might be good for baseball, but this 'aint baseball... it's my recommending options with other people's money and phone numbers.
Anyway, yourself any any other PagePlus customers... when the time does come and the buyout does go through and AM takes over on the support end, do please keep me in the loop.
