    Yes. PagePlus.

    You can activate _most_ Verizon prepaid InPulse phones on PagePlus here
    for $5.99: "http://www.uglyeric.com/activation.html". You can sometimes
    find slightly cheaper activations on eBay, search for "page plus
    activation" on eBay. However the packaging of the InPulse phone says
    that you can't do this. I suggest that before you open the phone package
    that you try to activate it (the ESN is usually visible from outside the
    package), so if it won't activate you can return it. However "UglyEric"
    won't do a refund, but some other activators will. Or call PagePlus
    customer service, give them the ESN, and ask if it can be activated.

    The cheapest place to buy more airtime is here:
    "http://www.callingmart.com/products/wireless/ProductDetail.aspx?ID=30".
    Use coupon code "ca3p-1207" for an additional 3% off.

    The PagePlus web site is at: "http://www.pagepluscellular.com", but you
    don't have to deal with them directly.

    The price per minute is 12 cents on the $10 card. But if you buy the $80
    card they add $168 worth of time to the account (the $80 card costs
    $73.72 from the source I list above). This brings the cost per minute to
    about 5.3 cents. Then you can just buy the cheapest card ($10) every
    four months to keep the account active (the $10 card costs $9.22 from
    the source I list above).

    Remember that you _must_ add more time every 120 days. If you fail to
    add more time, then you lose any remaining time on the phone, so don't
    forget to add at least $10 every 120 days.

    See "http://prepaiduswireless.com/" for more information on low cost
    cellular. \

    I used to have a Verizon prepaid phone and I wasn't
    able to activate it on any other network. This was 3 years ago,
    though. Have they changed the way this works now?
