Current Ringplus Promo [ringplus.net]

Availability Notice:
Subscriptions will open at each local regional time rather than the whole country at once. Plans will be available at the following times per region in the USA. Starting with East Cost RingPlus will open at 12 Noon EST, followed by 12 Noon CST, 12 Noon MST, and 12 Noon PST.

Due to the high demand of RingPlus Free Cell Plans and ultra low cost cell service, we have to implement some limitations with our wireless partners to handle the capacity.
Any time during the promo, you may see a message during the sign up process; "We are sorry, but the maximum capacity has been reached please try again within an hour." This means RingPlus had to temporarily close for new subscriptions, and will re-open soon due to the volume we absorbed within that hour.

Plans:

Sammy Baugh Free Plan
$0/mo. for 2000 minutes, 2000 texts, and 500 MB of 4G LTE data.

A $20 Top Up is required to cover overages. If, and only if, the Top-Up balance reaches $0, another $20 auto Top Up will be automatically charged to your credit card on file.

This plan is open only to new subscriptions or new lines.
Available at ringplus.net.

Bronko Nagurski Plan
$0/mo. for 2000 minutes, 2000 texts, and 500 MB of 4G LTE data
+ $5/mo for tethering

A $20 Top Up is required to cover overages. If, and only if, the Top-Up balance reaches $0, another $20 auto Top Up will be automatically charged to your credit card on file.

This plan is open only to new subscriptions or new lines.
Available at ringplus.net.

Don Hutson Plan
$9.99/mo. for 1000MB of full speed 4G LTE data.
This Plan is for data-only devices (e.g., iPads).
Available at ringplus.net.

Porting:

All port-ins to RingPlus during this Promotion will be Free.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

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.

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

What's with the reduced amount of data? The last deal was for 1800 MB.

I wonder if they will ever offer data-only devices for free. $10 for 1000 seems high when they give cell phone users 1800 MB for free

Well, that sucks. I guess they are planning on getting people to sign up with this for $20.
And then have people upgrade to a better plan, such as the Leonardo 2, or the 1800MB one, that costs $20. But they will only have like $16 left from this deal, so Ring plus will siphon a few dollars out of anyone who upgrades.
Or, it could be as simple as: We no longer offer good data for free. You must purchase add on data every month, you cheap bastards.

quite the letdown but these quotas used to be popular in the beginning. They must of hit a wall where they couldn't keep up the huge data buckets. I'm spoiled with plenty of Leo 3, I'm mostly in it for the data. Had some calling issues the other day but I think it was temporary.

This posting deserves neither a thumbs up or a thumbs down. It doesn't deserve a thumbs up because we have had much better deals for R+. However, this deal doesn't deserve a thumbs down for obvious reasons - It's a free service! (after the top up). I am personally going to hold off, but if you talk a lot, this may work out.
