RingPlus Mad Surfing BBQ Brisket Plan

Mad Surfing BBQ Brisket Free Plan will be without advertisement during the RingBack tone and calls directly routed over the Sprint network as all Sprint post, -prepaid and RingPlus' Mad plans.

The Mad Surfing BBQ Brisket plan will utilize data optimization as explained below.

By signing up for this plan, you agree to participate in this beta test which is researching the field of data compression, speed variation, and data stream sponsorships among other things. The goal is to research and produce the next generation of data delivery which will reduce RingPlus' data costs while delivering a good consumer data experience and more free data.

What is different? (Why is it a research plan?)

The basic goal is making your data last longer and to reduce data burn, without the cell phone user really noticing it and opening it up for alternative revenue streams paying for the free data.

You know that many companies are currently playing with data manipulation and slower speeds for streaming (but still enough to enjoy the video) with better compression, throttling some times, and sometimes not, to reduce data burn. We will do the same with the addition of inserting advertisement by Internet search, or an ad when you launch the browser sometimes.

Here is how it will work:

1) The Mad Surfing BBQ Brisket Free Plan will start out with the following:

Free/month: 4,750 talk, text, MMS, and MB

2) Over the next five billing cycles, RingPlus will add an additional 250 talk, text, MMS, and MB (4G LTE data with surfing data modification) to the Mad Surfing BBQ Brisket Free Plan Plan.

3) After that, you will have free/month: 6,000 talk, text, MMS, and MB (4G LTE data with surfing data modification ) going forward.

A $39.99 Top-Up is required to cover overages. If, and only if, the Top-Up balance reaches $0, another $38 auto Top-Up will be automatically charged to your credit card on file.

Overages:

$0.05 per talk, text MMS $15 per GB
Overages will be drawn from your Top-Up balance, plus applicable telecom taxes and fees.

For Regular Upgrades:

A $38 upgrade fee will be charged to your credit card, and added to your existing Top-Up. Afterwards, if, and only if, the Top-Up balance reaches $0, another $38 auto Top-Up will be automatically charged to your credit card on file.

For Member+ Upgrades:

A $20 upgrade fee will be charged to your credit card, and added to your existing Top-Up. Afterwards, if, and only if, the Top-Up balance reaches $0, another $38 auto Top-Up will be automatically charged to your credit card on file

Tethering will be available for $1.99 per month.

If you are completely new to R+, have a look at R+ FAQs :https://social.ringplus.net/discu...tc-faqs/p1

This FAQ & info in this Extensive Wiki is meant to answer frequently asked questions, but it is not meant to be all encompassing.

Be sure to read in desktop mode ("Request desktop site"), not mobile mode, so bullet items are displayed properly.

============== Quick Start ==============
Be sure to check your device using the R+ Device Checker [ringplus.net] to see if it will work.

Visit https://ringplus.net/#plans.
Select a plan, and click on "Sign Up" on the right.
Enter both MEID and ICC ID when you sign up.
After successful sign-up, power on the phone. Allow it to complete a hands-free activation.
Set up Wifi on the phone soon, so updates do not use up your data allotment.

=========== Hardware you need ===========

Phones HAVE TO have been WHITELISTED (pass the FED check) by Sprint

You can know for sure and right away by checking your phone against the BYOD database at
https://my.ringplus.net/device_va...quests/new
https://swappa.com/esn
https://ting.com/byod

Make sure all 3 sites say your MEID/ESN/IMEI say that the device can be activated.


Swapping vs. New line Waiting Period

I thought it might be another glitch but it's official, the real Voice over Sprint is back

this is as good and simple as it gets. I just don't know if upgrade fee is added to top off yet. even so it's hard to beat direct Brisket Mad if you need clear voice. For a one time fee.

https://social.ringplus.net/discu...isket-plan

RingPlus Mad Surfing BBQ Brisket Plan: 6,000/6,000/6,000/6,000 Minutes/Texts/MMS/MB LTE (Surfing Data) w/$38 one-time Top-Up; Allotments start at 4750 and go to 6000 within 5 months; UPGRADES available. (Billed directly to credit card not top up)

Start-times from now for new activations and upgrades - until Sold out

Mad Surfing BBQ Brisket

Please remember the Mad Plans always bill directly to the credit card and not top up.

Mad Surfing BBQ Brisket Free Plan will be without advertisement during the RingBack tone and calls directly routed over the Sprint network as all Sprint post, -prepaid and RingPlus' Mad plans.

The Mad Surfing BBQ Brisket plan will utilize data optimization as explained below.

ok, Ron beat me to it, I was only going to suggest two different threads. It's confusing having too separate discussions simultaneously. I'm excited as heck to see Brlisket back, I upgraded immediately.

Thanks Karl for listening and keeping it simple for normal people. Smilie

I think others have been that high but this is like a price mistake to me, paying one month of MNVO and getting at least 12 out of it. Maybe more, it's the deal that just keeps on giving.

The top up is a bit high, but when compared to any other carrier's pay per month plan for this amount of talk, text, and data you come out ahead by the second month.

I suspect most people won't ever need to top up again without using the tethering option.

They will throttle LTE speeds and add ads which use your data, so I guess I'll pass on this since it isn't free upgrade. Hot Pastrami Sandwich with up to unthrottled 7000 LTE data is good enough for me.

I haven't seen anything higher than $40, yet.

Still, it's chump change compared to what the average person spends on phone service each month. I think it's okay to let Ring Plus have their little money considering what they give.

Which is better? One of the two current plans or the BLT Upgrade which ends up @ 6gb? Thanks.
