If buying a new Sprint, Boost, or Virgin phone. Do NOT open the retail packaging until after successful RingPlus signup


Be aware
  • Significant latency (well over 1 second in many measured and verified calls) over any other "phone" service makes voice calls difficult. This isn't necessarily a non starter, just be aware of the situation.

RingPlus Announcement (i.e., current promotion)
What Is RingPlus
  • RingPlus is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) using the Sprint network.
  • Is it free / What is a top up - There is no monthly charge. There is a mandatory top up + tax charge at signup that is only used if you exceed the monthly allotment. If you never do then you'll never be charged for another top up. The top up is not refundable or transferrable.
  • Cancellation - RingPlus service can be cancelled at anytime without any fees, but top up is lost.
  • Roaming - Optional on all plans. Requires temporarily linking your checking account with Zipmark for identity verification and the one-time top up.
  • 911 - 911 is handled just like every other phone. The phone goes into the special 911 mode and connects directly and also can roam on other carriers for free

Current Plans and Sign Up
  • http://ringplus.net/#plans
  • There is NO contract.
  • Except for the "Truly Free" plan, plans typically require an account balance that's more than $0.
  • Account balance (from a top up) is deducted for MMS, International SMS, Overage, and add-ons you buy.
    • MMS can be disabled when you click on your line in Your Dashboard, under Account Features, Manage Device.
  • Account balance does not expire and carries over to next month.
  • If a plan has a $0 Monthly Price, you will not be charged again if your balance stays above $0 (or, you will ONLY be charged if and only if your balance drops to $0).

Compatible Phones
Compatible SIM Card (for compatible phones that are not carrier-specific)
Taxes and Fees
Upgrades (to a plan open ONLY to new lines during a promotion, by signing up for a waiting list)
Swapping vs. New line Waiting Period
Porting
  • Do NOT port over a weekend or holiday because of likely delays. RingPlus does not work weekends and holidays, and supposedly porting is a manual process.
  • All port-ins to RingPlus during this Promotion will be Free.
  • Plus the following promotions will apply to every port in to a RingPlus paid plan from the following carriers:
    • Verizon: Port-in to any RingPlus paid plan and get a $100 top up + a matching Top Up of up to $300 + an Add On of 2016 MB which you can use within the first 3 months.
    • AT&T: Port-in to any RingPlus paid plan and get a $50 top up + a matching Top Up of up to $200 + an Add On of 2016 MB which you can use within the first 3 months.
    • T-Mobile and Ting (or any other multi-carrier MVNO): Port-in to any RingPlus paid plan and get a $25 top up + a matching Top Up of up to $100 + an Add On of 2016 MB which you can use within the first 3 months.
  • Example: IF YOU TOP UP $30 DURING THE PROMOTIONAL PERIOD ON YOUR NEW LINE, RINGPLUS WILL MATCH YOUR TOP UP BY APPLYING A $30 CREDIT TO YOUR TOP UP. YOUR TOP UP BALANCE WILL THEN BE $60.

If you're getting "Credit Card Gateway Rejection: AVS" error please follow the instructions from R+ Support .. including checking your address on the USPS link: http://support.ringplus.net/suppo...ection-avs

No-root built-in tethering. Works on LG Tribute 2 & LG Stylo, (& maybe other LG phones as well) Note: Built-in tethering requires an account that allows tethering. Otherwise, you'll see an error when you enable it. Thanks and reps to Kumo for this: http://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=80352473&postcount=114 Note - use apk's from unknown sources at your own risk!

Not quite as cost-effective as the $16/1600/1600/1500, but amazing that it's available outside of promo. I've never seen this before, no announcements or anything. I wonder if it's an error.

I never noticed they charge for MMS. I guess that's good for iphone users since they can use imessage. I wonder if you can disable MMS or just not setup the MMS properly so it won't work. But you can't stop someone else from sending you one right?
