My ringplus phone drop and the screen no longer work, I need the phone number associated with the account, I heard when you swap device, you need to change both SIM and Phone, so I would hope there is a cheap phone to get it done. Will this boost mobile moto e work on ringplus:

It won't work as per fed rules. The best bet is to find an older used phone like on eBay.
Here's some info on the topic stolen from a previous wiki:
https://social.ringplus.net/discu...vice?new=1
FED - PLEASE READ ... Important Activation Notice Regarding Prepaid Phones referred to as FED = Financial Eligibility Date (sometimes people use FEC=Financial Eligibility Check)
https://social.ringplus.net/discu...vice?new=1
Starting 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 - Starting 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 the rule.
But if you deactivate a phone, you will trigger the rule 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

Try to search for old burner phones from Virgin or Sprint.
My mom had this old VM670 and one Kyocera Kona and I could use them on Ringplus. Try to ask friends or family if they have old Virgin Paylo or Sprint mobile which they don't use.

Try to talk to eBay sellers and tell them to run IMEI via Ringplus BYOD Tool Check and if it works then only buy it. p

If all you need is to receive and make calls...you can install a SIP client app (such as CSIPsimple) on an Android phone that you may already have. Configure your R+ WiFi FluidCall credentials on the SIP client. You'll be able to get incoming and make outgoing R+ calls through this SIP client. This Android phone just needs to be connected to the internet via WiFi or mobile data service from any service provider.
