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.
Please note that, except as otherwise noted in this post, 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).
UPDATE Sunday, Paid Sailing upgrades should be available now. https://social.ringplus

Memorial Day weekend upgrade - $25 non-M+ upgrade, $10 M+ upgrade, charged to CC. The upgrade does NOT add to your top up balance, but you keep your existing top up balance. You do not have to top up if your balance is over $0.
If you have a top up balance >$0, you do NOT have to top up again until your balance falls to $0.
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 upgrades - New lines only, except for Truly Free 2/3 during the flash or the $35 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 iPhone 6s failed FED check May 6. There is 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
Please refer to this Extensive Wiki which can answer many questions you have about R+ or getting starting, Including Credit Card, Gateway Rejected: AVS / Fraud errors / CSA:

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
Roaming included with M+, Roaming for non-M+ $50+tax
Per minute / per MB charges still apply.
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.
