Member+ Subscriptions:

Lifetime Member+
$120 one-time payment.
SAVE 25% OFF the 8 month financing plan!

Lifetime Member+ Financing Add On
The cost is $19.99 for 8 consecutive months. Meaning you have to pay the Lifetime Member+ fee for 8 months in a row to gain Lifetime status. If you don't pay for a month you will lose the Member+ status and your account will be change to the Truly Free 2 plan (from which you may upgrade to any other plan available at that time).

Short-term Member+ Subscriptions
If you want only short-term auto-renewing Member+ subscriptions (rather than lifetime), you can do that as well at the following rates (please note that you must keep your Member+ subscription to keep the benefits you got with your Member+ subscription, and if you cancel Member+ you will lose the benefits of Member+ including all plans and Add Ons you may have purchased during your Member+ subscription period):

12 months (auto-renewal):
Member+ pricing $99.99 (tax included)*

6 months (auto-renewal):
Member+ pricing $59.99 (tax included)*

3 months (auto-renewal):
Member+ pricing $39.99 (tax included)*

What is Member+?

Member+ is a RingPlus Membership program that gives Members additional benefits. Benefits range from special pricing on wireless services to promotional pricing in the RingPlus store for items sold by sponsors and RingPlus. The subscription is tied to a specific line (i.e., not the phone, phone #, or plan), and is not refundable.

*Please note that Members need to maintain Member+ to keep their Member+ benefits (including these plans and any other Member+ benefits like specially priced data Add Ons). If you no longer have Member+, you will no longer have the benefits of Member+.

For example, let's say someone has Member+, and they got the Eternity Plan. Let's also say that their Member+ subscription expires on the 1st of next month, and they do not renew it. And let's also say that their Eternity Plan expires on the 7th of next month. In such a case, that Member would continue to have the Eternity Plan until the 7th of next month. On the 8th, their account would be automatically changed to the RingPlus default plan currently called Truly Free 2. That Member would then be able to change from Truly Free 2 to any available plan, and they could also subscribe to Member+ again to get access to the plans and benefits exclusively offered to Member+.

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.

If you have an existing top up balance >$0, you do NOT have to top up again until your balance hits 0. You still have to pay the upgrade fee.

All upgrade waiting list upgrades through Elevator have been pushed.
Karl's quote: "Before Thursday we will go through all exiting upgrade list and fulfill the remaining allotments available for each upgrade list. After Wednesday upgrades from the past will not be available anymore"
https://social.ringplus.net/discu...ment_34507e

Phone sources: RingPlus Store, RingPlus classifieds, Swappa, eBay, Craigslist, locally used phones (verify passes BYOD checker).

Swap outs and cancellations have usually been allowing immediate new lines: https://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.
Note upgrade requirements per plan
FED - Many reports are that R+ prepaid phones that have been deactivated are passing FED checks! One failure reported 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

Quote from Karl @ RingPlus: "Member+ upgrades. Something is cooking for member+ exclusive. Just have patience for 1-2 days"

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:
https://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
Lifetime Member+ Financing Option for $160 or $120 one time payment
A Lifetime Financing Add On for Member+ is available. The cost is $19.99 for 8 consecutive months = $160. Meaning you have to pay the Lifetime Member+ fee for 8 months in a row to gain Lifetime status. If you don't pay for a month you will lose the Member+ status and your account will be downgraded to the Truly Free 2 plan.

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.

Yeah, as a member+, I feel lied too. All of this just points to desperation, which I hope is not true. Most of the benefits mentioned for member+ are lies, I wouldn't get it if I had to do it again.

Maybe give it a chance to sink in. Karl is responding to the questions.

I can't believe some of you guys, you've been asking for a one-time upgrade fee and karl is trying out your ideas. It may not be the best deal but you have to give him some credit for trying.

I agree for non-member+, the upgrade price seems fair, especially with the new FED requirement it's hard to get new lines and allow you to continue using your existing line with more everything. I have a problem with the upgrade fee for member+ though.
