poor merchant reputation: MAKE SURE YOU MAKE A CALL IN LESS THAN EVERY 60 DAYS, OTHERWISE YOU WILL BE DOWNGRADED TO FREE PLAN (125min/50text/25MB) WITH NO NOTICE. THIS WAS STARTED SINCE 07/11/2016.


Bring Your Own Device
You check if your phone is eligible in the RingPlus Check Tool at https://my.ringplus.net/device_va...quests/new.


Porting and eligible phone chart https://social.ringplus.net/uploa...wpp12u.png
Eligible phones for porting-in (bring your phone and phone number) include Sprint Network compatible phones and other eligible phones from AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile (and your MVNOs)

Swap outs and cancellations have usually been allowing immediate new lines: http://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=83732938&postcount=1271
....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.

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:
http://slickdeals.net/f/8525775-ringplus-cell-service-info-faqs-quick-start-wiki?v=1&src=SiteSearch

If you are completely new to R+, have a look at :https://social.ringplus.net/discu...vice?new=1

FED - PLEASE READ ... Important Activation Notice Regarding Prepaid Phones referred to as FED = Financial Eligibility Date https://social.ringplus.net/discu...-phones/p1
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.
https://social.ringplus.net/discu...t/17213/p1
https://social.ringplus.net/discu...-top-up/p1

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.

Yeah. Surfing 5 didn't have any data compression, right? I did sign up for one of those, would hate it if it has...

For fathers day, I thought they might throw in a better one, oh well, no love for fathers Wink

they keep mixing it up which mixes us up too. Surf5 wasn't compressed but they messed up the payment part, still in the air. I'm not ready for another promo, not when the other isn't quite finished up.

Last Compression, ad insertion would reward user with extra bonus data every month they stay on. And could drop down to Volleyball at anytime.

This S6 has free tether on 3,750MB but might be throttled. I'd check the old thread to see how they like it. https://social.ringplus.net/discu...esearch/p1

it's free and better then Freedompop voip, I'm in it for the fast data. I gave my crap phones to some family by a sprint tower and it's much better. I'm not near one so I'm keeping my best phone, the Nexus 6 for most calls. So coverage and phone do matter.
