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.

NOW LIVE $35 Paid upgrades via Classifieds at 6 pm
Your current top-up balance will be transferred to the new account.
The upgrade fee will be added as an additional top up balance of $35 to your account. .

How will we sign up for this upgrade?
a. Classified: https://social.ringplus.net/class.../items/all
b. Dashboard: https://my.ringplus.net/users/sign_in
c. Upgrade list: https://promos.ringplus.net/upgrades-lists.html

Bring Your Own Device BYOSD
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

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: 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.
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:
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

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.

No upgrade fee for M+?
I guess everyone will go with the LTE. The throttled doesn't seem to worth it for extra 1GB, 2GB.

8,800 MB LTE throttled at 64k /month isn't as good as the Infinity.

Limited availability, Unless stated otherwise I'll go with that plan since they didn't mention fee.

How do I cancel my "seashore" plan upgrade to switch to this? I upgraded to Seashore last time but it's not effective for another 2 weeks. How do I cancel that upgrade to tap into this upgrade?

Monkey:
No cost (no upgrade fee)

Here is how I think it work:

Example:

new sign up during flash promo: 2,000

member+ upgrade: let say 1,500 member+ member upgrade

Thus, non-member+ upgrade: 500 left over.

Hope that make sense

But realistic numbers.....

150 sign up
500 m+ request upgrade
0 non-m+ upgrades available.

10 out of 500 m+ get upgrade without a problem
somewhere between 1 and 100,000 complain
all of those that complain will get ignored

512k looks to be the sweet spot. 128k is adequate for 360p youtube.

It looks like the phone will go to sleep before it can finish sending one email picture at 128k; 64k speed.

I had Continium plan throttled at 256K LTE. It was quite unusable. It's only good for web browsing and check emails. I ended up upgrading to Seashore plan a month ago.

read the wiki, cancel forfeits top off and starts wait cycle(correction, wait cycle is no longer enforced) You can hope for upgrade spot after Flash. oops I misread that. I'd keep seashore but your call. I guess cancel pending upgrade on dashboard and hope you better get upgrade.
