Question Using the Droid X2 on pageplus

Has anyone used the Droid X2 on page-plus here? I am looking to buy one on eBay for about $250, and I don't use more than page-plus offers(usually) whats your experience? Did you have to do anything special to the Droid x2? Also, what carrier are you using your phone on?
TIA

I just activated my x2 on page plus, bought mine off ebay also for $132, $250 seems a little steep unless it comes with extras. The only thing I had to do was a factory reset the previous owners info was still on the phone. You should also get the esn# and make sure it's clean with page plus before you buy.

I am using my Droid X2 on PagePlus. I bought it on eBay used in good condition for 62$ shipped. I get excellent service and the data is fast. Im probably going to be rooting soon because this phone has a tendency to lag to the point of crashing. Its an overall good phone though. Especially for the money.

I am on Page Plus with Droid X2. Depending on what plan you are going with, I would root the phone and install droid wall to prevent background data when not on wifi.

$250 are you buying used? I just but a used one for 60 bucks for my mother that was in good shape.

The OP was probably buying used - almost two years ago - though I'm pretty sure that was on the high side even back then.

I did not even notice how old this post originally was... I just saw it up top and assumed it was new but looks like it was bumped by the poster above me.

I just bought two Motorola Droid x2s off ebay-excellent price ($69 each) refurbs that look like new. Activated on Page Plus...work great. Is there an easy way to stop the phone from using data on 3g and only use Wi-Fi when in range? My daughter has unknowingly used up quite a chunk of her monthly data in just a couple of days. I suspect that it's apps synching and updating when she's out of range-unknown to her. I think we've got it turned off now where they will only synch on wi-fi.

I thought of using an App-killer but I'm seeing that these are sometimes counter-productive?

Thanks in advance for suggestions.

change
menu>system settings>battery & data manager>
data saver should be check, if you are trying to limit data usage
and
menu>system settings>battery & data manager>data delivery
uncheck 'data enabled' to disable 3g
uncheck 'background data' to limit 3g
note: exact locations may vary
