If you have a top up balance >$0, you do NOT have to top up again until your balance reaches $0.
....Starting new free lines immediately from canceled phones may be delayed until billing cycle data, 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 (excluding TFU) during the flash (top up balance required)
....Downgrades to TF 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.
....Port in is FREE, but 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 and will not trigger an FED check
- A device swap will trigger an FED check on the phone being activated
- To date, all R+ phones which have been deactivated are passing the FED check (with 1 exception), 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.
