    It's technically possible. But legally no you cannot. Reason being is that Straight Talk doesn't allow any phone's that are not theirs to be used on the network. So in order to use it, you would have to change the Ally's ESN which is illegal.

    So...

    Long story short, no.

    Sorry!

    I've been using my Ally on PagePlus Cellular for almost a year now, and have not had any complaints. 1200 minutes, 2000 texts and 100mb of data per month for 29.99. Barely any data allowance, but I don't use that much anyway and most data I need I get off WIFI.

    Also, PagePlus uses the Verizon network...

    I think the poster is thinking "locked" as people think of unlocking GSM phones. If he finished his contract and the account is paid up then it is not locked in the verizon sense. Sounds like OP was just used to having to unlock a GSM phone to use it on another carrier. Verizon phones will activate on pageplus fine as long as it is not a prepaid phone, blackberry or lost/stolen/bill balance unpaid.
