For a new phone, do NOT open the retail packaging until after successful RingPlus sign-up
  • So the phone can be returned if sign-up fails.
  • If you power on the phone before sign-up, the phone might (or likely will?) activate automatically to its original mobile operator (e.g., a Boost phone activate automatically to Boost). A factory reset might not fix it.
  • If you power on the phone after successful sign-up, the phone might (or likely will?) activate automatically to RingPlus.

What is RingPlus
Other Things to Know
Phone
SIM Card
  • A 3G or older phone does NOT require a SIM card.
  • A 4G LTE phone requires a Sprint or MVNO (Boost, Ting, Virgin) SIM card.
    • A new (presumably 4G LTE) Sprint-specific (including Boost and Virgin) phone will already come with a compatible SIM card.
    • Otherwise, see both OP and Wiki of Thread with SIM card models and pricing info.
      • Either SIMGLW426C or SIMGLW446C will work for Nexus 6.
      • SIMGLW406R for iPhone 5. SIMGLW426C or SIMGLW436C for other iPhones.
    • Sprint SIM cards are NOT universal. Make sure you get a correct one.

Sign-Up
  • For MEID/ESN, if DEC does not work, try HEX, and vice versa.
  • Be sure to enter ICC ID, which is actually required for most LTE devices, during sign-up.
  • Credit Card Gateway Rejection: AVS [ringplus.net]
  • After sign-up, you will have registered a "user" and under it one "line" (see below).

A "User/E-mail/Your Dashboard" can have multiple "Lines/Phone Numbers/Accounts"
  • A user (or unique e-mail login) has one Your Dashboard (url contains "users"), and can have multiple lines (url for a line contains "accounts").
  • Each line (or unique phone number) is an "account", and has its own plan, its own monthly allotments, and its own account balance.
  • A person should not have more than one free line. [ringplus.net]
  • You may want to have only one line under a user and not "Activate a New Line", because you might only be able to add an e-mail once to an upgrade waiting list.

For each Line: Account Balance, "Top Up", Monthly Allotments
  • Except for the "Truly Free" plan, a plan typically require an initial "top up" (plus taxes and fees, see below), so that your account balance is more than $0.
  • You receive monthly allotments (i.e., allotments are renewed every month, with NO rollover) of: a minutes plus b texts plus c MB.
    • You can track your usages (against your monthly allotments) when you click on a line in Your Dashboard.
    • When you click on a line in Your Dashboard, data is shown in GB, and 1 GB = 1024 MB. For example, 1200 MB is shown as 1200 / 1024 = 1.17 GB.
    • If you are still concerned, for Android phones, under Settings, Data usage, you can set warning and limit for mobile data usage.
  • Account balance is deducted for MMS, International SMS, Overage (when you go over your monthly allotments), fees [ringplus.net] you to incur, and add-ons you buy.
    • MMS can be disabled when you click on a 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 (i.e., no monthly charge / "free"), you will NOT be charged again if your account balance stays above $0 (i.e., you will ONLY be charged if and only if your account balance drops to $0).

Taxes and Fees
  • For $x in top up (or add-on), you are charged ($x in top up + $y in taxes and fees).
    • The $x in top up shows up in your account balance.
    • The $y in taxes and fees show up once in your invoice. The taxes and fees do NOT recur.
      • This example is in fact normal for the first month. No need to create a new ticket/post.
  • If you buy an add-on, and it costs less than your account balance, the cost will be deducted from your account balance. Otherwise it is charged separately and taxed:

Activation (for service, i.e., provisioning)
Upgrade Waiting List (for upgrading to a PROMO PLAN open ONLY to NEW LINES during a promotion)
Swapping vs. New line Waiting Period Porting
  • Beware of likely delays if you port over a weekend or holiday. 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: (see details on https://promos.ringplus.net/)

Enable built-in tethering for LG phones (root NOT required)

Wow! Glad I took a break for a few weeks. This is quite a lot for basically free (with initial top up.)

Do they charge the $20 off the bat when you sign up for the plan, and if so what are the extra taxes they add on?

i guess everyone who is subscribed to ringplus should be getting their services for free by now unless you are heavy data users.

it looks like ringplus is gonna start having these promotions every month as attempt to take your money with topup.

the question is at what point does it stop?

if they stop with these promotions, they'd have to provide free service for the current subscribers forever, and i doubt if it is sustainable as I don't think they have big enough subscribers base to make money with ads unless they:

1. start selling subscibers data
2. delay your calls so you have to listen to longer ads
3. start texting you daily with ads
4. force to you watch ad when you browse the internet

so i think its likely they'd have better/more promotions to build subscriber base and recoup their costs with required topup

we better wait

Its right in the wiki. Suggest you read it. Taxes will vary by location but expect a buck or two or even more on $20.

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.

Taxes and Fees
For $x in top up (or add-on), you are charged ($x in top up + $y in taxes and fees).
The $x in top up shows up in your account balance.
The $y in taxes and fees show up once in your invoice. The taxes and fees do NOT recur.

My understanding is that if you wait until a certain local time today you can get this offer too, based on what the first post tells me... Unless I read it wrong, that or you can just get all previous plans
