Answer: No, MMS is not included in any RingPlus plan. RingPlus plans only include domestic SMS in their text allotments. Each MMS is charged at the MMS overage rate (currently 4¢). To use MMS, you must have an existing top up balance to deduct from.
Q: Do I have to maintain a top up balance?
Answer: Yes, if you want to keep the Future Plan beyond the first month. To keep the Future Plan, you have to add a minimum $5 top up before the month is over. Once you've added a top up, the balance never expires. If your balance ever reaches zero (due to overages, etc.), your credit card will be charged automatically for another $5 top up.

Answer: You will be charged overage, deducted from your top up balance. If you run out of top up balance, your credit card will be automatically charged $5 (+ tax) to replenish your top-up. If you anticipate needing more than your free allotment amounts, you can purchase add-ons, which are additional monthly amounts of minutes, sms, or data.
