RingPlus' free phone service giveaway this morning, the Sprint MVNO is running a new "Afterhours" promotion tonight (12/10) at 10 PM PST. This one offers 300 Minutes, 50 Global SMS, and 10MB of data for $6 a month. Extra minutes, messages and MBs of data are 2¢ each.
While it's not free, tonight's promotion is still a pretty good deal. RingPlus least expensive regular plan, the $5.99 per month "Harrison" doesn't include any minutes, texts or data, the $5.99 just keeps your number active. You also need a cash balance to cover calls, data and texts at 2¢ per minute, message or MB.
As with all of RingPlus' current plans you need to "Bring Your Own Sprint Phone". The phone can't be currently active on Sprint or another Sprint MVNO. iPhones, BlackBerrys, Palm phones, PTT devices and Boost and Virgin Mobile phones and most Sprint phone models released in the last 12 months are NOT allowed. There's a list of allowed (and not allowed) phones on the Ring Plus Site. Before or after the sale starts can check if your phone is allowed by entering the MEID or ESN at https://my.ringplus.net/device_validation_requests/new.
When the sale starts return to https://my.ringplus.net/device_validation_requests/new to register for the promotional plan. I don't know how long this deal will last but I suspect it will be longer than today's free promotion which sold out in 27 minutes.
Update: 1 PM PST 8/11 - The promotion seems to have ended, the $6/month 300 Minutes, 50 Global SMS, and 10MB of data Afterhours promotional plan is no longer available.
