Phase 11 part B same time and place Friday October 23, 2015. 12pm PDT- 3pm PDT
Quote :
RingPlus can activate most inactive Sprint postpaid phones. Although not officially supported, brand new, never activated Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile and Sprint Prepaid phones usually, but not always, work. Check the seller's return policies before buying a prepaid phone for use on RingPlus. Enter the phone's MEID (on a label on the outside of the phone packaging) on the RingPlus Device Check Page to see if your phone can be activated on RingPlus

RingPlus' free plans are ad sponsored. Customers hear ads in place of the usual ringing tone before a call is answered. When a user hears an offer of interest to them they can press the five key on their phone and get a text message or an email containing a coupon or additional information.

RingPlus calls use traditional cellular voice, not VOIP so call quality is similar to that of Sprint. However, the ad injection makes RingPlus' call routing different than Sprint's and some users report increased latency (delay). Other's, including myself, don't find the latency noticeable in actual calls. http://www.prepaidphonenews.com/2...rrent.html
__________________________________________________________________________

PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING REPEAT QUESTIONS

Q: Who is RingPlus?
A: They are a Sprint mvno (reseller).

Q: How is RingPlus different compared to other Sprint mvno's?
A: Company inserts their own ringback tones when you make a call.

Q: What do you mean by ringback tone?
A: You make a call and then hear "ring" "ring "ring" until the other party answers. RingPlus replaces the "ring"(s).

Q: Will the other party hear anything different?
A: No.

Q: Can I replace what is being played after I dial?
A: You cannot eliminate it. There is alternative content that can be chosen for the account's Dashboard.
https://discourse.ringplus.net/t/...ation/3537

Q: Why was this thread rated thumbs-down for weeks?
A: RingPlus first started this concept of free phone service in 2013. By mid 2014, almost everybody had their accounts cancelled.

Q: Why should I trust RingPlus now?
A: You have to believe that their business model now is viable & that they have learned from their mistakes.

Q: What is the minimum calling requirement for the free service?
A: 1 call every 60 days. However, using your phone regularly will help allow RingPlus to continually offer free service.

Q: How do I monitor my balance or usage?
A: RingPlus Dashboard website [ringplus.net], or the RP Samara Android app [google.com].

Q: Do you have any numbers I can call just to listen to content?
A: AudioNow - http://www.audionow.com/listen-li...-by-phone/ Recorded Weather Forecasts - http://www.weather.gov/dial-a-forecast/ TUNEDEX MEMORIES - http://www.songsyoushouldhavehear.../aboutPage

Q: Anything else I can do to support RingPlus?
A: During the ringback tone, press 5 to get more information. There is no charge or obligation to do this.

Q: Does RingPlus have a limit on the number of free users? Would they mind if my friends & relatives signed up as well?
A: In 2013 and 2014, you could only sign up during the promo periods. Now, RingPlus wants everyone to spread the word so they can sign up as many different people as possible.

Q: Can I have more than 1 phone (for family members) on my account?
A: Yes. But if you are signing up for others and then letting them manage that phone in the future, it might be a better idea to sign them up using a different account. RingPlus is also "considering" implementing a feature where ownership of a phone can be transferred to someone else.

Q: If I have more than 1 phone on my account, are the units (minutes, text, and data) shared among all users?
A: No.

Q: Why should I use RingPlus instead of Freedompop?
A: RingPlus does not require a smarthpone app using mobile data to make calls and sent texts. For Freedompop, you need to have a supported phone that you purchased from them (or pay $20 if you already have a phone on their suported list). Furthermore, you need to have a good data connection AND Freedompop's SIP app has to work reliably. Voicemail is also an extra feature on Freedompop. While it does not happen to everybody, Freedompop is also infamous for surprise charges. On the other hand, Freedompop gives much more data. You know, nobody says you must choose one or the other. You could use both services or choose neither if they do not fit your needs. Do what is best for your situation.

Q: RingPlus and/or Sprint sucks!
A: In the prepaid phone world, one size does not fit all. It is called Having Choices.

Q: How do I signup?
A: Have a Sprint-base phone that passes their validation checker. https://my.ringplus.net/device_va...quests/new Sign up for an account.
https://my.ringplus.net/registrations/new Within the account settings is where you select add your info and select a plan.

Q: Does RingPlus give me a number when signing up?
A: Yes. Number is from your region, but you have no choice on the exact number they issue.

Q: How come I am getting an error when trying to sign up?
A: System will not allow activations in non-Sprint areas, so try a different address. Alternatively, try a different credit card.

Q: What free plans are available?
A: Free Plan, Pepper Plan, Truly Free Plan, VIP Free Plan, VIP Pepper Plan, Diversity Plan, Junior Plan, Future Plan, and Jasmine Plan.

Q: What is the Free Plan?
A: First free plan offered in 2015 and started on June 13, 2015. You get 200 minutes + 50 texts + 10mb LTE data. A credit card or debit card is required. Auto top up is not required. Plan is always available for now.

Q: What is the Pepper Plan?
A: First offered on June 30, 2015. You get 250 minutes + 500 texts + 10mb LTE data. Auto top up is required using a debit or credit card. Minimum top up now is $5 + tax so your balance is never $0. If you never reach $0, there would be no need to add any additional money to the account. If you have an existing balance, you will not be charged the $5 minimum until your balance reaches 0. Plan now seems to be always available.

Q: What is the Truly Free Plan?
A: Introduced on July 15, 2015. You get 125 minutes + 40 texts + 10mb LTE data. No credit or debit card is required. All you need is a phone and an email address. Plan is expected to be always available. Obviously, you would need to top up with a card if you need more units for the month. Company also intends to implement soon a cash top up system using retail chains.

Q: What is the VIP Free Plan?
A: Introduced on August 19, 2015. Plan is an upgrade to the Free Plan and only available during designated promos. Users get 110mb instead of 10mb.

Q: What is the VIP Pepper Plan?
A: Also began on August 19, 2015. Plan is an upgrade to the Pepper Plan and only available during designated promos. Users get 260mb instead of 10mb. On 10/1/15, VIP Pepper plan was changed to 250 minutes + 500 texts + 280 mb.

Q: What is the Diversity Plan?
A: Opened on 8/27/15. Top up of $5 is required immediately regardless of current balance. Diversity Plan will include 300 minutes + 500 texts + 300mb. As soon as you go over the minutes, text or mb, you will be charged $5 and given another set of whatever category you went over. That means you would get either another 300 minutes or 500 texts or 300mb for $5. This extra set can rollover up to 2 months. If the $5 automatic charge fails, the line will be converted to the Truly Free plan. Plan is only available during designated promos.

Q: What is the difference between Pepper(and VIP Pepper) and Diversity Plans?
A: The important difference is that the Pepper Plan's overages are 2 cents per minute, text, or megabyte. Overage on the Diversity Plan is $5 for an additional chunk of minutes, text, OR data. Whether Pepper/VIP Pepper or Diversity is best for you depends on how much usage your line uses each month.

Q: What is the Junior Plan?
A: Began 9/17/15. Junior Plan is like the Diversity plan except tailored for daily use. Users get 10 minutes + 10 texts + 10mb Lte data everyday.

If you go over 10 minutes of talk for the day, you will be charged $1.00 and get unlimited talk for the next 24 hours. Anything over 10 texts in the day will trigger a 50 cent charge where you get unlimited texts for 24 hours. After 10mb that day, the overage is 2 cents per megabyte.

Like the Diversity Plan, Junior plan requires a top up of $5.00 immediately. Top ups expires in 2 months. Likewise, you are only charged if you go over. In both Diversity and Junior, there is no added charge if you stay within the limits.

Q: What is the Jasmine Plan?
A: Introduced 10/1/15. Plan gives 500 texts + 500 minutes + 500mb per month. A top up of $5 is required. This plan is like Diversity in that any overage will set off an auto top up of $5 only for the category that went over. That extra minutes or texts or data expires in 60 days.

Q: What is the Future Plan?
A: A ONE-TIME ONLY plan that was available on 9/22/15 from 6-9PDT. Users who signed up got 1000 minutes + 1000 texts + 1000mb per month.

UPDATED 10/14/15 Roaming Registration Advisory:

Q. Can you roam to non-Sprint towers such as Verizon?

Roaming can provide coverage in areas where Sprint coverage is too weak to connect. For example, you could roam to a Verizon tower when a Sprint tower was not in the area. With RingPlus, you have to register through another company to enable roaming. Charges are 14 cents a minute, 55 cents per megabyte, so avoiding roaming calls and disabling data roaming on your phone are highly recommended.

To enable roaming, you have to link your checking account to Zipmark, so be aware of the extensive personal information they require, which should be a concern to anyone in this day and age of identity theft and the ordeal that can get you into for the rest of your life.

They require:
1) Real name
2) Drivers license number
3) Last 4 of your Social Security number (worse than you think)
4) Checking account number
5) Birth date

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATED 10/12/15 with Swapping and Tethering tips. Feel free to contribute.
**Swapping fees to increase to $1.99 at the end of the month.**
Quote :
Goal - swap 2 phones between 2 plans with aid of a 3rd phone or ESN which is inactive, and swapping can be done immediately without a waiting period. First make sure your RingPlus balance on each plan has enough to cover the swaps. In this example $2 on Plan A, $1 on Plan B. The plans do not have to be on the same RingPlus account.

Plan A - has Phone A
Plan B - has Phone B
Phone C is an inactive Phone or ESN

1) Plan A - swap from Phone A to Phone C
2) Plan B -swap from Phone B to Phone A
3) Plan A - swap from Phone C to Phone B
4) Phone C is back to being inactive

*Each of the 3 device swaps costs 99 cents each, so it costs about $3 to complete a three way swap as shown.

Canceling a free line ties up the phone until the next billing cycle if you are trying to activate a NEW free line with the phone, just as if the phone was swapped out of a free plan. Doing a device swap on a different free plan to the phone from the canceled free plan works immediately..
--------
(For a list of reported working devices on RingPlus, see below; add yours if you know a working one that is not on the list)
(Please include whether it was New In Box or Used and what brand, VM/Boost/Sprint Pre-Paid or Sprint Post-Paid).

More info http://www.androidheadlines.com/2...tones.html

The plan provides 200 minutes, 50 text messages, and 10 MB of LTE data per month for free. If you need more, you can add funds to your account to create a credit balance which will be used to pay for overages at 2? per minute, text or MB of data.

The current Free Plan has 200 minutes, 50 texts, and 10 MB of LTE data. Although a credit card is necessary to sign up for this Plan, RingPlus will never charge the card on file unless the RingPlus Member chooses to top up his or her account to get a greater allotment of talk, text, and data. The plan will just stop working when the Member runs out of their allotment of talk, text, and data which will be automatically replenished the next month based on the day they joined RingPlus. This Plan does not require a top up balance.

RULES:*

from tweaver@ringplus.net
Hello all!

Welcome to the 2015 Free Plan and congratulations on getting your free cell phone service. Here are the general guidelines:

Free Plans with no voice usage (outbound calls) for more than 60 days may be expired.

Follow our General Terms and Conditions: ringplus.net/legal/members/

That's it! Enjoy Smilie

*UPDATE RULES quote from Ringplus:

So the new policy for all MVNOs is that, if they pass our check tool, then they are good to go. They won't be removed or swept from the system.

Brand new VM or Boost phones will likely fail (for a number of reasons), but if they do pass, then they are more than welcome!
(LG VOLT) Plug in phone, register HEX and ICC at ringplus.net, CC required. Dial ##72786# carrier reset and that's it.

So? It's a top up. You have to add a CC anyway. At least no FaceCrap is required.

Yes, it's a top up. Future 1, 2, and 3 only required a $5 top up, so it's absolutely not the same as this promo.

However, Future 1, 2, 3 all had the same allotments as this one, but this one will also give additional free Voice, Text, and Data will be added based upon deal popularity in various forums and social networks.

You should actually read the deal before responding with these types of questions.

RingPlus also made a change to their top up pricing policy that will soon take effect.

You're the one who is having his credit card rejected with Future plans but not with Pepper?

Too bad you don't have another credit card. I use Discover on all my accounts and lines.

C'mon 2000 MB! Maybe then, I'd consider giving up my primary phone for RP. Question is, would it be safer to port number to Google Voice rather than RP......
