Just got the following. I'm sure everyone will receive it soon:

IMPORTANT NOTICE

ABOUT YOUR SERVICE

Dear Members,

We have some good news for you. RingPlus has reached an agreement in principal with its carrier partner to allow us time to migrate you all to Ting during the next 1-2 weeks (we will let you know the exact dates soon).

Ting is welcoming all RingPlus Members. Ting will honor all Members' current RingPlus Top Up balances with a credit toward Ting service.

Each member will start with a $35 credit, regardless of whether they have any RingPlus Top Up balance!

Those members who have a RingPlus Top Up balance higher than $35 will get the first $35 applied in full. Afterwards, the remaining Top Up balance (over $35) will be disbursed in $5 credit increments each month until the Top Up is exhausted.

After the move to Ting, Members will not have active service until Ting has collected a credit card from the Member and the Member has agreed to Ting's terms of service online.

We are welcoming Ting moderators to RingPlus Social to comment on this thread. Ting moderators will be identified with a Verified Shield, and the name "Ting" at the end of the username.

Ting will also honor this deal for Members that have already switched to Ting. But please be advised that port outs prior to the migration could be slow.

For ongoing updates on the current and upcoming Ting processes go to ringtoting.com.
IMHO, not worth it. If you were holding out to see what happens, now you know the answer.

Red Pocket 1 year $99 deal is a better value - 500 min/500 txt/50 mb every month.

NOW RingPlus has failed us. I disputed at AMEX for $120 Membership+ fee which was paid just two months ago. Just received reply from AMEX that decision is in favor or me because Ring+ didn't respond to the message AMEX sent to them. I suggest everybody trying this. Ring+ wouldn't have the resource to respond to all inquiries.


Ting Mods will learn quickly how R+ Mods are incompetent tools


Migrating from RingPlus to Ting https://help.ting.com/hc/en-us/ar...5002455507


consolidate my answers here... Social Discussion https://social.ringplus.net/discu...g-ringplus

@David
Each account at RingPlus will be eligible for the credit and be migrated based on its email address to Ting. If you need to recombine those into a shared account on the Ting side, we'll have a process worked out for you to do that. We don't usually carryover Ting credits when combining accounts, but we'll have an exception for RingPlus TopUp credit that is honored in the migration.

@yfn34
The migration will be relatively automatic. You'll need to agree to the terms of service and provide your billing information when you first login to Ting. We'll let you know when the time comes to take that step. Beyond that, the credit will be automatic.

@conservative-emerald-glossy-mousepad
Very peculiar automatic display names over here! In any event, your number will be moved to Ting if you don't opt out prior to the due date (which we're working with Sprint and RingPlus to extend to sometime next week). At that point, you can activate your new Ting account by providing your billing details and agreeing to our terms of service. If you choose not to, your port-out information will be available on that same page.

@SparkyM
You can still port over, or cancel if your port has not yet completed. We're working on a manual process to issue your credit to you. Please stay tuned to ringtoting.com for updates on that.

@oldbooks1
Unfortunately, Ting credits don't stack — unless you add line(s) or purchase devices from the Ting shop down the road.

@Seh-hee
We should have your port completed before Wednesday. Your TopUp balance will be honored manually since you're porting (not quite the automatic process we're also working on for folks that don't port). If you happen to get hit with the auto-TopUp again, let us know at Ting and we can help get that back to you as Ting credit on the Ting side. It's also possible that @Classifieds can update on how auto-TopUp will behave over the next few days.

@TxHookEm
Let me know if my response above helps clarify.

@din9alin9
Your service will continue until we have the terms and billing agreement process in place next week.

@bkoopman
Ting credit only expires if you leave Ting.

@rcentros
Ting supports voice and text roaming on the CDMA side. There is no extra charge for it.

@magnetic-turqoise-polka-dotted-jukebox
Per RingPlus account. See the response to David above.

@1_to_remember
Ting will honor the entirety of your TopUp credit, just over time. We will also talk with Karl, Jerry, and about the possibilities for Member+ benefits. It's not really the typical Ting thing to distinguish one customer from another, but we realize Member+ folks have been especially vocal supporters of RingPlus. Please stay tuned.

== Multiple lines on single email ==
Anyone know what happens if you have multiple phones on a single RingPlus email account? Will both phones transfer? Only the first? Will $35 per line be granted, or $35 per email? If all transfer to Ting, what happens if you move one of the lines to another carrier? Will Ting then delete all the phones?

Don't see why not. I originally used the Ting checker to see if my Moto E was eligible. Ting runs on Sprint as well as ATT/T-Mobile. It should be fine.

From what I've read it looks like $35 per account, not per line you have with R+. They charge $6/month per device. I have 3 lines with R+, I really only want to keep 1 of them. Looks like I'll cancel the other 2 right away when they switch over.

Very glad that Ting has a shared pool of credit, something R+ could never do.

My Sprint LG Volt worked when I ported to Red Pocket, so I don't see why not.

With some carrier, you'd have to remove the phone from line first, before it will allow activation. Had to swap for a different phone before I ported. Everything is up and running though.

Oh god. Ported to Ting earlier today. Hopefully this won't back up my port time lol. Only have 2 days left on my plan and don't want to top up.

Looks like minimum $6 per month service fee just for having a number, not even using ANY service. So $35 will last 5 month if you don't use it at all
