Upgrade list has specific requirements, unlike past upgrade lists. See wiki.

Also:

Every line on the list will be upgraded, and the upgrade will take place approximately 48 hours after the close of this promo. (For example, a Member has a pre-existing RingPlus account under their email address buffet@some.com, and they have 4 lines on that account. That Member would have create a new RingPlus account under donuts@some.com, and activate a new line. That Member could then place one of their lines on the buffet@some.com on the Immediate Upgrade List.)

Toggle Switch Update

The toggle switch for billing cycle has been enabled again, and both the toggles work by clicking on them now within the toggle switch. You can also slide them by holding down the mouse over the white area and moving the mouse from side to side. I've also noticed that if you don't slide it completely, the switch no longer gets toggled "part way" as it would before and will now finish turning on or off completely, even if you don't finish the job yourself.

PLEASE READ ... Important Activation Notice Regarding Prepaid Phones https://social.ringplus.net/discu...-phones/p1
Starting April 17, 2016, per our carrier partner Sprint, Members and potential Members will no longer be able to activate prepaid devices which are not eligible under Sprint's FED policies (explained below). Such prepaid devices will no longer pass FED until actual eligibility date is met. This is not a new Sprint policy. It is merely a system update to the Sprint system to comply with Sprint's existing FED policies, and to close the gap in the system that allowed such devices to pass FED and be activated on carriers other than those that originally sold the device ("originating carrier").

Starting 4/17, in order to activate a Sprint/Boot/Virgin prepaid phone with RingPlus, the phone must have been active with its original carrier for 12 months.
  • Already activated phones are not affected because they will not trigger the rule.
  • But if you deactivate a phone, you will trigger the rule when you (re)activate the phone.
  • You will no longer be able to activate a new-in-box Sprint/Boot/Virgin prepaid phone (e.g., from Best Buy) with RingPlus.
  • Upgrading a line to a different plan is NOT an activation, but swapping to an inactive phone with mean an FED check

Lifetime Member+ Financing Option for $160


A Lifetime Financing Add On for Member+ is available. The cost is $19.99 for 8 consecutive months = $160. Meaning you have to pay the Lifetime Member+ fee for 8 months in a row to gain Lifetime status. If you don't pay for a month you will lose the Member+ status and your account will be downgraded to the Truly Free 2 plan.

Member+ Exclusive Buffet Add-Ons
  • 1,000 MB (full speed LTE) $8/mo.
  • 2,000 MB (full speed LTE) $15/mo.
  • 5,000 MB (full speed LTE) $30/mo.
  • 1,000 MB (full speed LTE) $15/6mo.
  • 5,000 MB (full speed LTE) $50/6mo.

1. Lifetime Member+ Financing Option

A Lifetime Financing Add On for Member+ is available. The cost is $19.99 for 8 consecutive months. Meaning you have to pay the Lifetime Member+ fee for 8 months in a row to gain Lifetime status. If you don't pay for a month you will lose the Member+ status and your account will be change to the Truly Free 2 plan. From which you may upgrade to any other plan available at that time.

How to Subscribe to Member+
You can get Member+ if you have any current plan. When you are signed in to your account, click "Add Ons". In Add Ons, you will see Member+ Add Ons. Select the Member+ subscription you want.

If you don't have a plan yet, you can sign up for the Truly Free 2 Plan, and add a credit card to your account. When you are signed in to your account, click "Add Ons". In Add Ons, you will see Member+ Add Ons.
After you have Member+ you can go to your account and click on "Upgrade Plan". There you can select to change to this Plan (or any other available plan).

*Please note that Members need to maintain Member+ to keep their Member+ benefits (including these plans and any other Member+ benefits like specially priced data Add Ons). If you no longer have Member+, you will no longer have the benefits of Member+.
For example, let's say someone has Member+, and they got the Eternity Plan. Let's also say that their Member+ subscription expires on the 1st of next month, and they do not renew it. And let's also say that their Eternity Plan expires on the 7th of next month.
In such a case, that Member would continue to have the Eternity Plan until the 7th of next month. On the 8th, their account would be automatically changed to the RingPlus default plan currently called Truly Free 2. That Member would then be able to change from Truly Free 2 to any available plan, and they could also subscribe to Member+ again to get access to the plans and benefits exclusively offered to Member+.

Additional Notices and Terms:

Activation 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.
Anytime 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.

SPEED TEST/CELL SIGNAL RESULTS:

Hopefully we can put together a list in order to give each other and potential new customers an accurate view of cell sign signal strength and speed with r+/sprint.


Signal quality is listed in the settings -> about phone ->status or signal-->sim status. Speed can be measured by speedtest app


1) Relatively strong sprint area. Cell Signal - ranges from -110 to -99. Speed test results(5 trials): .74down/.86up. 2.29/3.99. 10.87/.57. 1.76/1.17. 1.50/1.13

2) Check here instead http://webcoveragemap.rootmetrics.com/en-US Switch it from AT&T to Sprint and zoom to your area. Rootmetrics is also crowdsourced.

3) Another option is OpenSignal [opensignal.com], this shows actual user reported signal strength via the OpenSignal app.

You bet, I held of for M & Q & Hip Hop 1 & Flash promo from last offer.. in hope for April fools day or the blow out prior to April 17.

Stop saying that.
I said the same thing as you on another R+ thread. Some rich shill, yelled at me. Saying R+ will survive after the 17th.
Yeah right. Not like everyone would pay over $150 for a used phone to try on R+.
Right now, I'm sure 90% R+ customers are using NEW $80 phone.
