RingPlus has reopened their $12.99 unlimited plan promotion.
As before the plans will include a limited number of international calling minutes but RingPlus has increased the number of countries you can call from three to 100. There's a list of the new international destinations in this SlickDeals Forum post by RingPlus' CEO.
The unlimited plan promotion is open to a limited number of users. When these plans were first offered last week they sold out in about 12 hours. They will probably go even faster this time. Anyone who manages to sign up for the promotional plans will be able to keep them indefinitely.
Update: As of 11/6 the promotional plans are still available.
There are three plans:
- BYOSD-Richard: $12.99 + taxes, Unlimited Voice, 50 SMS US & International, 10 MB Data, 50 Free International Minutes to 100 countries
- BYOSD-Lina: $14.99 + taxes, Unlimited Voice, Unlimited SMS US & International, 50 MB Data, 150 Free International Minutes to 100 countries
- BYOSD-Noelani: $17.99 + taxes, Unlimited Voice, Unlimited SMS US & International, 300 MB Data, 250 Free International Minutes to 100 countries
You will need to how to activate your phone. The procedure varies depending on the phone make and model. With many devices you just do a factory reset and the phone will initiate hands free activation automatically. Other phones, especially older ones, may require manual programming. RingPlus will supply you with the MSL and MSID codes needed for programming but you're on your own with the actual programing.
