How to Get this Free Plan If You Don't Have Member+
During the "Member+ Re-Opening Times" (posted at the top) this Plan is available exclusively for Member+ subscribers who activate new lines on Member+ by first signing up for Truly Free Plan (please see "If You Don't Have a Plan Yet" below.
What is Member+?
Member+ is a RingPlus Membership program that gives Members additional benefits. Benefits range from special pricing on wireless services to promotional pricing in the RingPlus store for items sold by sponsors and RingPlus. The subscription is tied to a specific line, and is not transferrable or refundable.
Lifetime Member+ Financing Add On
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).
Short-term Member+ Subscriptions
If you want only short-term auto-renewing Member+ subscriptions (rather than lifetime), you can do that as well at the following rates (please note that you must keep your Member+ subscription to keep the benefits you got with your Member+ subscription, and if you cancel Member+ you will lose the benefits of Member+ including all plans and Add Ons you may have purchased during your Member+ subscription period):
12 months (auto-renewal):
Member+ pricing $99.99 (tax included)*
6 months (auto-renewal):
Member+ pricing $59.99 (tax included)*
3 months (auto-renewal):
Member+ pricing $39.99 (tax included)*
If You Don't Have a Plan Yet
You can sign up for the Truly Free 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.
If You Already Have a RingPlus 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.
*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. That Member would then be able to change from Truly Free 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:
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.
*All offers available while supplies last.
Except as otherwise stated in this promo (e.g. loaner phones above), buying items in the RingPlus Store will NOT make the purchaser eligible for the offerings in this promotion.
All other RingPlus legal terms also apply, and can be found at https://RingPlus.net/legal/members. Please read them. If there is any difference or conflict between the terms of this offer and any other RingPlus legal terms, the terms of this offer will control (i.e., the terms of this offer will override the other legal terms).

$27 top up for new line activation. $0/month for 3400 minutes, 3400 texts, 3400MB data (full speed LTE) EVERY MONTH - NO ROLLOVER
Add 100 MMS per month for free or add paid tethering or data add on. The 2000MB add on is NOT monthly.
Upgrade any line - $25 purchase (NO tax) via classifieds is charged to credit card, confirmation of purchase is received by email, you can apply Cabana upgrade to any line, and $0 (out of the $25) will be added to the existing top up balance (sorry ). So it's like a $25 upgrade since $0 goes on your top up balance, or like a $20 upgrade when you consider a $25 top up would normally cost about $5 in taxes anyway. M+ is NOT required for this promo during the flash.
...Classifieds upgrade instructions from Seashore are mostly the same here: https://social.ringplus
If you have a top up balance on a line >$0, you do NOT have to top up again until your balance for that line reaches $0. But the $25 classified cost to upgrade is still required and will add $0 to your existing balance.
Swap outs and cancellations have usually been allowing immediate new lines: http://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=
....Starting new lines immediately from canceled phones may not always work, use placeholder workaround for immediate activation if you run into that issue.
....If you get billing cycle delay, it means until the renewal date on your plan, not a fixed 30 days. Placeholder + swap is quick fix.
....See more on cancellations at bottom of wiki.
No free upgrades - except for Truly Free 2/3 during the flash (top up balance required) or the $25 classified method
.....Downgrades to TF3 are no longer allowed.
M+ is not required during the flash
FED - Many reports are that R+ prepaid phones that have been deactivated are passing FED checks!
.....One R+ deactivated iPhone 6s failed FED check May 6. >90% R+ phones reactivate successfully despite not meeting posted FED criteria, but there's no guarantee.
BYOD Your Own Phone - Test Eligibility here: https://ringplus.net/#byosd
Port in is NOT required.
Separate accounts are typically recommended for multiple lines - not locking into a single email address

FED - PLEASE READ ... Important Activation Notice Regarding Prepaid Phones referred to as FED = Financial Eligibility Date https://social.ringplus
As of 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").
FED - As of 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 an FED check
- But if you deactivate a phone, you will trigger an FED check when you (re)activate the phone.
- You will no longer be able to activate a new-in-box Sprint/Boost/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 will mean an FED check
- To date, all R+ phones which have been deactivated are passing the FED check, although this is not guaranteed by policy
Per minute / per MB charges still apply. M+ & non-M+, 14¢ per minute, 55¢ per MB, SMS roaming just substracts from allotment.
FreedomPop phones purchased post FED (04/16/16) must be on FP for a minimum of 6 months before FP will release the ESN.
If you cancel your current line with R+ then you will lose the remaining top-up balance for that line, your phone number, and the phone from the canceled line. Also, in some cases, you will not be able to register a new free line using the phone from the canceled line until the end of the billing cycle (<1 day up to 30 days max), although you can use a placeholder for new registrations and swap in the canceled phone for $1.99 as an easy workaround if that happens. To this point, all deactivated R+ phones have been able to reactivate new R+ plans despite FED policy, although the billing cycle may come into play on occasion. Update: On May 6, someone reported that they deactivated a iPhone 6s from R+, and it would not reactivate. A BYOD check gave the message that it failed FED. This is the only report of a R+ activated phone getting deactivated and then not meeting FED.
R+ classified is now open for business. https://social.ringplus
