PagePlusBalance v0.5.2

PagePlusBalance retrieves your balance from PagePlusCellular.com, currently for android phones.

Author: Travis Burtrum (moparisthebest)
Email: android@moparisthebest.org

Features:

  1. Gets your balance directly from PagePlusCellular.com, saving bandwidth by making fewer requests than a browser could and not downloading any javascript, css, or images that a browser would.
  2. Optionally, over mobile data, will send your details to a service on my server that uses the same code to grab your balance from Page Plus as the android app and sending you back only the data you want as plain text, saving you a substantial amount of bandwidth.
  3. Now supports getting your balance by automatically sending a text of BAL to 7243, and parsing the response.
  4. Stores your balance on your phone along with the last time you refreshed it.
  5. Open source under GNU/AGPL!

Android market entry

This is NOT an official page plus application, if it wasn’t obvious enough already. I am simply a page plus user who wanted a decent way to check my balance, so I wrote this. Page Plus now all of the sudden after about 3 years wants this app removed from the market because they may write their own app sometime in the future. If it does get removed, it will always be available at the github URL below (so bookmark it), but maybe you should email page plus to tell them you would like this app to remain on the market if it’s helpful to you.

This app allows Page Plus users to check up on their balance, minutes, texts, and data using the least amount of data transfer possible, OR via SMS.

Currently tested and works on Pay-go, TnT1200, and Unlimited plans. If it doesn’t work on your plan, email me the HTML source to your page plus account info and I’ll add in support.

If you have issues or requests for this app, please create an issue at the github link below. If you can’t do that, email me at android@moparisthebest.org, but know that github issues will receive priority.

How to comply with License:

Basically, the AGPL requires that if you distribute the code, or if you host the application where the public can access it, such as a public server, then you must provide the source code along with your modifications as a download on that page. This is to promote development of the program and share code with everyone to improve it. If you have any questions, contact me at android@moparisthebest.org. If you use the code, I’d love to know, so drop me a line if you would.

TODO:

  1. Page plus sends dates in 3 different formats, ‘2013-06-21’, ‘June 21, 2013’, and ‘6/21/2013’, perhaps parse those and display them in a single format?
  2. You suggest it, via a github issue or email!
