Sprint MVNO RingPlus has announced a new free plan called "Pepper" that includes 250 minutes, 500 texts and 10 MB of data for free each month. Customers who use more will be charged 2¢ per additional minute, text or MB of data. The Pepper plan will be available beginning at 9 PM Pacific Time, tonight June 30.Pepper differs from RingPlus' current free plan, which is still available, by including more minutes (250 vs 200) and more texts (500 vs 50). But, unlike the current free plan, Pepper requires a $5 (plus taxes) top-up at activation and has auto top-up enabled. Anytime the account balance reaches zero, a $5 plus taxes top-up will be charged to the user's card. With the the current 200 minutes, 50 texts free plan RingPlus never charges the user's card unless they explicitly top up their account using the RingPlus dashboard.
RingPlus supports BYOSP (Bring Your Own Sprint Phone). Sprint phones need to be fully paid for and not currently in service with Sprint or a Sprint MVNO. Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile and Sprint Prepaid phones are not supposed to work on RingPlus until they have been in service for 12 months with the service they were sold for. Some users have reported being able to use some brand new, never used Sprint Prepaid phones on RingPlus. Of course, there's no guarantee that will work for you. You can check if a phone can be activated on RingPlus here. RingPlus also offers phones for sale at store.ringplus.net.
