Legends 5 Promotions: Weekly Specials
Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at 12 Noon Pacific until
Saturday, February 13, 2016 at 12 Noon Pacific

This weeks promotion ringplus.net overs two very different Free Plans:

Althea Gibson Daily Free Plan

$0 for up to 2010 minutes, 2010 texts, and 2010 MB of 4G LTE data in total per 30 days based on your Free daily allotments of 67 minutes, 67 texts and 67 MB! (Tethering included.)

and
Giuseppe Farina

$0/mo. for 1,200 minutes, 1,200 texts, and 1,200 MB of 4G LTE data
with Daily Tethering Available (this is a monthly plan)

Availability Notice:

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:

Giuseppe Farina Free Plan with Daily Tethering Available
$0/mo. for 1,200 minutes, 1,200 texts, and 1,200 MB of 4G LTE data

Plus you can add tethering for $0.49 per day
*Please note that if you turn tethering ON multiple time in a day, you will be charged multiple times (e.g. in one day you turn tethering ON, OFF, ON, OFF, ON = three charges in one day).

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 current Members who activate new lines.

Available at ringplus.net while supplies last.

Althea Gibson Daily Free Plan
$0 for up to 2010 minutes, 2010 texts, and 2010 MB of 4G LTE data in total per 30 days based on your Free daily allotments of 67 minutes, 67 texts and 67 MB!

Attention - This a Daily Free Plan (not monthly)

Each day you get 67 minutes, 67 texts and 67MB for Free.
Your usage is measured daily, and it does not rollover.
If you use more than your allotment of talk, text, or data, your overages (i.e., extra use) will be billed at the rate of 2 cents per unit of whatever you are out of (i.e., minutes, texts or MBs).
The plan auto renews every 24h.
You can add an additional GB of data for just $7.99 per 30 days (it will auto-renew until you turn it off).

A $9.99 Top Up is required to be maintained at all times to cover overages. If, and only if, the Top-Up balance reaches $0, another $9.99 auto Top Up (+ required taxes & fees) will be automatically charged to your credit card on file. Please note that this is a minimum Top Up requirement, and it is not a monthly charge. Every time (e.g., daily, weekly, monthly, etc.) you use your Top Up balance down to $0 balance, your credit card will be charged another $9.99 (+ required taxes & fees).

This plan is open only to new subscriptions or current Members who activate new lines.

Available at ringplus.net while supplies last.

Text in OP is better formatted if you click on "RingPlus forum topic" in the "2/8: Legend 5 . . ." line below.

WiFi Fluidcall has been down since around 2/1/2016. RingPlus knows they are down and are working to fix the outage, but since it isn't a critical system they aren't in a rush to fix it.

Latest updates
============== Quick Start ==============
  • Background
    • RingPlus provides service using the Sprint network.
    • RingPlus intends to provide "free" or cheap service by playing advertisement, instead of ringback tone, on outgoing calls.
  • Hardware you need
    • You need a phone that works on the Sprint network.
    • The easiest bet might be a new phone from Best Buy, and Best Buy usually has the best deal.
    • Click on this link [bestbuy.com] to see available phones that should work, with price sorted from low to high. The Moto E is pretty popular.
    • The new phone will already include a SIM card.
    • But do NOT open the retail packaging until after successful RingPlus sign-up.
  • How things work
    • Visit https://ringplus.net/#plans.
    • Select a plan, and click on "Sign Up" on the right.
    • Enter both MEID and ICC ID (from outside the retail package) when you sign up.
    • After successful sign-up, open the retail package and power on the phone. Allow it to complete a hands-free activation.
    • Set up Wifi on the phone soon, so updates do not use up your data allotment.

============== FAQ ==============

This Wiki below is meant to answer frequently asked questions, but it is not meant to be all encompassing.

Be sure to read in desktop mode ("Request desktop site"), not mobile mode, so bullet items are displayed properly.

=============== Preamble ===============

Find a heading to jump to a section quickly
  • Background
    • What is RingPlus
    • More things to be aware of
    • More things to know
  • Hardware you need
    • Phones HAVE TO have been WHITELISTED by Sprint
    • SIM Card (for a 4G LTE phone, if not already included)
  • How things work
    • Sign-Up (to register a "user" and under it one "line")
    • A "User/E-mail/Your Dashboard" can have multiple "Lines/Phone Numbers/Accounts"
    • For each Line: Account Balance, Top-Up, (usually) Monthly Allotments
    • Taxes and Fees on Top-Up
  • Misc
    • Activation (for service, i.e., provisioning) problems, if you do not get proper phone service
    • Upgrade Waiting List (for upgrading to a PROMO PLAN previously open ONLY to NEW LINES)
    • Swapping vs. New line Waiting Period
    • Porting
    • Enable built-in tethering for LG phones (root NOT required)
  • In each section, start with first-level bullet items. Read second-level bullet items and beyond for additional details.
  • You can always press Ctrl-F in this Wiki to do a quick search.

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.

============== Background ==============

What is RingPlus
More things to be aware of
More things to know
=========== Hardware you need ===========

Phones HAVE TO have been WHITELISTED by Sprint
SIM Card (for a 4G LTE phone, if not already included)
  • 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.
    • You should be able to reuse a Sprint or MVNO (Boost, Ting, Virgin) SIM card, as long as it was properly released by its previous carrier.
    • 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.
  • Buying SIM card from RingPlus to "lock in" a promo:
    • In each "RingPlus forum topic" announcing a promo, you can usually find: "If you purchase a SIM during the promo, we will reserve your place as long as you activate within 14 days after receiving your SIM card."
    • However, you will probably need to contact RingPlus to get this processed after you receive your SIM card.

============ How things work ============

Sign-Up (to register a "user" and under it one "line")
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 use more than one free line [ringplus.net] according to RingPlus CEO in 10/2015.
  • 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, (usually) 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 usually receive monthly allotments, depending on your plan, of: (x) voice minutes, plus (y) text messages, plus (z) MB of mobile data.
    • Monthly allotments are renewed every 30 days to the minute, with NO rollover.
    • You can track your usages (against your monthly allotments) when you click on a line in Your Dashboard.
    • But you CANNOT set a limit to prevent overage (while you can with FreedomPop).
    • 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, fees [ringplus.net] you to incur, and add-ons you buy.
  • 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).
    • For example, suppose your account balance is $2.01, and further suppose device swapping costs $1.99. After you "Swap Device" to another phone, your account balance will be $2.01 - $1.99 = $0.02, and your credit card will NOT be charged because your account balance will still be above $0.

Taxes and Fees on Top-Up
  • 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:

================= Misc =================

Activation (for service, i.e., provisioning) problems, if you do not get proper phone service
  • If a phone does not activate for service properly after powering on, try RingPlus' Help Center [ringplus.net].
    • In the Help Center, besides following "Typical Provisioning Steps", be sure to also check suggestions for your specific device.
  • If you have a 4G LTE device, you should have entered ICC ID during sign-up or "Swap Device".

Upgrade Waiting List (for upgrading to a PROMO PLAN previously open ONLY to NEW LINES)
  • What is an upgrade waiting list for?
    • If you have already signed up (i.e., you have an existing line), you can sign up for an upgrade waiting list, so that the existing line can potentially be upgraded to a PROMO PLAN that was previously open ONLY to NEW LINES during a previous promotion.
      • For example, the Legends 1 promotion ran from 1/15 to 1/18. One promo plan was called Sammy Baugh, and it was open ONLY to NEW LINES (i.e., existing lines were NOT eligible) from 1/15 to 1/18.
      • On 1/20, an upgrade waiting list for Sammy Baugh became open, so that if you had an existing line, you could sign up and potentially be upgraded to Sammy Baugh later on.
    • If you just want to upgrade to a NON-PROMO PLAN, you do not need to be on an upgrade waiting list. Instead, simply click on "Upgrade Plan".
      • If your existing plan is "free", you must toggle "Next Billing Cycle" to Yes.
  • Currently OPEN upgrade waiting list [ringplus.net] (please click on link to see what, if any, is available and how to sign up)
    • Not all promo plans have an upgrade waiting list.
    • People do NOT know when/if/which promo plan or its upgrade waiting list will open or close, NOR when/if you will be upgraded.
    • To make changes, click on link in previous e-mail. Or, sign up again and click on link provided in new e-mail (may need to cancel and sign up again).
  • CLOSED upgrade waiting lists:
  • Upgrade top up charge:

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.
  • Porting times will vary greatly. My personal experiences from start of port until it is complete varied from less than 1 hour to 3-4 days (started on a Tuesday). If you start on a Friday or near the weekend, it will take longer due to the weekend and I assume some part of the porting process needing a manual component or something. Other posts in the thread also have similar experiences. If you have a problem in the process, it is usually user error, either you typo-ed or you have the account num, PIN, address on file doesn't match where you are porting from.
  • Tip: You may want to consider porting to Google Voice, and forward calls from Google Voice to RingPlus.

The way things have been going recently, you may be in for a wait. One thing you could do is signup for a free plan on a crap phone, and put yourself on the waitlist for one of the old Leo plans. If a good plan comes up before you're upgraded, take yourself off the waitlist and deactivate the crap phone--otherwise just do a device swap to the iphone if they upgrade you. No sense potentially waiting months without service.
