RingPlus has quietly reopened their "City" plans for a limited time. These plans are only available to users with a New York City, the San Francisco Bay Area or Los Angeles zip code.
Additional minutes, texts and MBs of data are 2¢ each and MMS picture messages are 7¢ each.
Update 4/11/2014: The Paid City Plans are still available but the free ones are not.
Plan prices do not include taxes which average about 20% on the paid plans and a dollar or two per month on the "free" plans. The free plans are also subject to Rules of the Road usage requirements including:
- You must activate your phone and make a successful outgoing call within 24 hours after registering it or your account will be cancelled.
- You must make a successful outbound call at least once per week and 10 successful outbound calls per month.
The free City plans were last offered from 3/6 to 3/14. I don't know how long the availability window will be open this time, but if you are eligible and interested I recommend not procrastinating. To sign up go to http://ringplus.net/plans/city/. For more information visit the RingPlus Forums' Surf and Turf and Club 51 threads.
If you don't live in New York, LA or San Francisco, the 2014 Free BYOSD plan will be open to new activations Friday Mar 28, 2014 from noon to 12:30 PM PT. It includes 200 voice minutes, 500 domestic or international texts and 50 MB of data.
