Wow... I don't know if people will actually spent that much to use it on ringplus... I for one only use R+ as a backup phone. Decent price still.

What is wrong with R+? Paying $0 (or small initial price) for service means I can spend plenty on the smartphone. It is my only service and is amazing.

On side note op, title needs to say open box. And only has about 10 month warranty left.

My issue is that I don't know if their business model is viable. They have shut down once before many years ago due to lack of funding. Ringplus is funded mainly by new people joining and paying up front. I don't mean to imply it's a Ponzi scheme, but I do have doubts about its long term survibility.

There's nothing wrong with R+ at all, I have like 5 of them. But again, it's all for backups, or selling stuff on Craigslist... I don't know about using it as my primary phone. I don't think it's ready for prime time yet. But that's really off topic from this topic. Lol

Plenty of things wrong with RP least of which is the service is completely unreliable (i.e Sprint). Toss in call latency, social media gimmicks, constantly changing plans, top ups, nickel and dime charges, extra roaming chargers, no customer service, and the most annoying fanboys. Not worth it to save $30/month, I can get those savings on groceries. Heck, right now I haven't paid for Cricket service in a year with referrals and credits. RP has shut down before and there is no reason they won't do it again. EEK!

As to this topic, keeping an expensive phone on RP makes no sense because you're not using any of the features (e.g. Samsung Pay) and using a carrier-locked phone is throwing away money if you decide to switch.

Been using ringplus for 3 years and running. I have zero worries about it's viability. If it shutters tomorrow, no big deal. I'll look back fondly because of the thousands of dollars I've saved.

Well Sprint's reliability is region dependent, for me at least, I haven't noticed any difference after switch from Cricket last year. There is a slight call latency sometimes, social media gimmicks are always optional and only once upon sign up. Top ups and changing plans are only upon initial sign ups too. As in once you are in a plan, there's no reason to change unless you really want another plan. Those nickel and dime charges (mms, switching phones) are really the only thing you'd use those top up dollars for anyways. And last I checked, Cricket had terrible customer service too.

As for this specific deal, Samsung Pay will work fine considering it's just a regular Sprint phone. And for those who haven't clicked the ebay deal, it mentions it is GSM unlocked too so you can certainly toss in a Cricket sim later if RP craps out.

I would agree if someone bought a flagship phone to use exclusively on R+ that isn't compatible with other carriers. I assume this one's GSM unlocked?

I ended up buying the Moto X Pure and threw it on the R+ 4000 plan, so I can jump to any other carrier if R+ ends service. I would say it's makes perfect sense for anyone using flagship quad carrier phones(iPhones, Nexus, etc) to get R+. Otherwise for Sprint network only phones, I'd stick with low end ~$30 burner phones.

Good point. Even this Sprint device is GSM unlocked but Nexus, iPhone and Moto XPE is much better.

It's interesting... I've read almost the exact same complaints on here for R+ threads before I joined them. From like 1 or 2 people total. I haven't had any of those issues. All I know is everything has been going great for me and thats all that matters.
