Promo for free 300 min & 50 text/mo plan finishes @12:01AM 8/27 PST. Next promo starts within one week. Follow here for next promo hour!
RingPlus, which briefly offered free ad-supported international calling in 2009 is back. They are now a Sprint MVNO with a number of plans including a $49/month Unlimited Ultra Plan that includes the typical unlimited voice, messaging and 1GB of data. But what makes RingPlus interesting is its brand new free ad-supported plan.
The one person on HowardForums who did get activated found that voice and messaging and the pre-call ads did work but data did not.
Update 8/27/2013: before the free plan promotion ended, a number of users here and on HowardForuns where able to get phones activated on the ad-supported plan although data isn't working. Interestingly, there were several reports of successful activation of Virgin and Boost Mobile phones. Previously Sprint didn't allow MVNOs to activate Boost and Virgin devices. I wonder if Sprint has changed that policy? Unfortunately, I think it's more likely that the Boost and Virgin activations were a glitch that wasn't supposed to happen and the promo was ended until that loophole was closed.
