RingPlus Deal: HTC 510 and 3 Months Unlimited Talk, Text and 500 MB/month Data For $99

Sprint MVNO RingPlus is running a new promotion that looks like a pretty good deal. For $99 plus taxes and about $20 for shipping, you get a brand new HTC Desire 510 LTE Android phone and 3 months of service on a special Desire Plan. The plan includes unlimited talk & text and 500 MB/month of 4G LTE Data.

After the first three months, the plan costs $15/month plus taxes. Additional data can be purchased for $8 per 1 GB per month or at an overage rate from $0.02 per MB. The phone can be returned any time within the first 3 months for a full refund.

The Desire Plan cannot be activated with any other device. The HTC Desire 510 cannot be purchased separately from the Desire Plan.

After the initial three-month period customers can stay on the Desire Plan indefinitely or switch to any other RingPlus plan that's available at that time. They can also replace HTC Desire 510 with a different Sprint BYOSD eligible device.

The Desire 510 runs Android 4.4 KitKat and has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 Quad-core processor, 4.7 inch 480 x 854 px screen, 4 GB internal memory, 1 GB RAM, 5 MP main and 1.3 Mp front facing cameras, a microSD card slot supporting up to 128 GB cards and a removable battery.

Update 8/12: No longer available.

  1. The 510 is certainly a dude IMO and probably why they are trying to push them out.

    Sorry to drive this sideways Dennis, but what are your thoughts on the HTC Desire 626s? The SPP versions are on the pegs at BB and yet I have not seen them on the VM/Boost websites yet?
    Was thinking of picking one up to see it will activate on Ring Plus.

    1. I haven't seen an HTC 826s or specs for the Sprint version. Assuming it's the same as the Verizon model, compared with the 510, the 626s has:
      5" 720 x 1280 px screen - bigger, higher res - good
      8 MP vs 5 MP main camera - good
      8 GB vs 4 GB internal storage - good
      Still only 1 GB RAM - neutral
      Snapdragon 210 MSM8909 vs Snapdragon 410 MSM8916 - downgrade - bad

  2. I have a HTC Desire 626S Sprint on Ringplus. Bought it new at Bestbuy and had no problems putting it on ringplus. The trick to it is when you buy it put it directly on Ringplus. If you put it on boost, virgin, or sprint before putting it on ringplus. It wont pass the check even if it has a clean esn. I have activated 6 phones on Ringplus this way.

    1. Thanks, you did not happen to run the ESN on Ting by any chance? I also wanted to run the ESN on some other MVNOs as well to see if it it blocked. The ESN for the SPP Volt is now showing good on Ting and iDeal Mobile where it did not several months ago.

      Delete
  3. No I have not try Ting. I have LG Volt 2 and HTC 626s on Ringplus. I bought them both new at my local best buy came home and activate them on ring plus without any problems. I have other sprint and boost mobile phone that are used and have clean ESN but when I try to activate it on ring plus it won't pass.

    1. I take it those two devices are Sprint Pre-Paid versions?

      Delete
    2. LG Volt 2 is boost mobile and HTC 626s is sprint

      Delete
  4. Good know those newer devices are good to go on R+. How do you like the two devices?

    1. The LG Volt 2 is the better of the two. It has sprint spark the other don't. It's has a better camera and cpu also.

      Delete
    2. You are kidding, the HTC 626s is not a Tri-Band device? What a waste of a good phone.

      Delete
    3. Yes I know. The HTC 626s for sprint does not have not sprint spark. I'm thinking about returning it and getting me a LG G Stylo instead.

      Delete
    4. Where are you seeing specs for the Sprint HTC 626s that indicate that it doesn't have tri-band LTE, aka Spark?

      Delete
    5. Sprint HTC 626s has Spark according to
      http://eguides.sprint.com/support/eguides/spp_htcdesire626s/index.html#htc_desire_626s_ug/sprint_spark_lte.html

      and other sources.

      In fact, all new Sprint smartphones have Spark.

      Delete
    6. They should be, but where is it written in stone that all new devices are Tri-Band?

      If they would look on the back of the box it will say "Operates within the Sprint licensed frequency bands of 800/1900 MHz CDMA 800/1900/2500MHz LTE

      Delete
    7. The bands listed show it has spark.

      No new phones have lacked spark ( other than special purpose phones).

      Delete
    8. I have the HTC 626s for Sprint and I can verify that it does not have sprint spark. Don't believe any of that internet blog. I only way you can truely know if you have the phone and I'am a owner of the phone. If it has sprint spark the sprint spark would show on top on the next to the signal bars. I can send a screen shot it to anybody who wants to see it to their email.

      Delete
    9. All phones that has Sprint Spark has its logo next to the signal bars. If it does not that means it does not have Sprint Spark regardless if it says it does. Proof is in haveing the device itself to contradict what is written. I have LG Volt 2 and I have HTC Desire 626s. Both phones are in the same location and the LG Volt 2 has Sprint Spark logo and HTC Desire 626s does not show. not just at my home location but any location i go to. same thing.

    11. Dallas is a select market. LG Volt 2 has sprint spark and HTC 626s does not.

    12. "All phones that has Sprint Spark has its logo next to the signal bars. If it does not
      that means it does not have Sprint Spark regardless if it says it does."

      Only while connected to a Spark LTE signal. The logo does not show when connected to a non-Spark signal.

      So what is being reported here is that the phone is not *connecting successfully* to Spark, for whatever reason. It could be defective or not set up properly or maybe it has a weak radio - I do not know.

      Delete
    13. There is absolutely noting wrong with it and it does not have a weak signal. Why is it so hard to believe that it does not have Sprint Spark. If it don't have then it don't have. Why is there have to be something wrong. Just it accept and stop being in denial. I have the phone and I'am reporting that it does not have sprint spark.

    15. All the HTC 626S prepaid models for Sprint support Sprint Spark unless they are defective. Your report is wrong.

      Delete
    16. My report is right because I have the phone and you don't. Your just going by what it say on the spec sheet. Don't believe everything you read. Dallas is a select market so there is nothing wrong with it. Good phone and gets good LTE speed.

      Delete
    17. It's not just the spec sheet. Page 122 of the HTC User Guide also confirms this phone supports Spark. So does the HTC website.
      Either you are not in a Spark area; your phone is defective; or you are just making up this report.

      Delete
    18. I agree. He blames the phone because he did not bother to read the user guide. Here is what the screen icons mean on this phone:

  5. Please note that this phone has well less than 1gb of user usable storage. The file system also is configured to limit the ability to move app to the optional microSD. In other words, you will be stuck with the less than 1gb for your app downloads.

    The integrated Google Apps and HTC apps will get regular updates which will eat up additional space in the storage.

    1. Yes. I recommend you root the phone and just install want you want or wait for Andriod M to come out. But still where no telling if they going to get 6.0 on this handset.

      Delete
    2. I'll add: no camera flash, fixed focus, and a dim screen. It is an ok looking phone and feels good in the hand, but has more bezel than it really should.

      Does RIng Plus unlock phones after a certain number of service months?

      Delete
    3. RingPlus doesn't unlock phones. The Desire 510 is CDMA only anyway so there's nothing to unlock. It is only compatible with the Sprint network.

      Delete
    4. What is interesting is that they responded to a question on Discourse about the device and it is apparently Virgin Mobile branded.

      Unfortunately shipping and tax make it a much less appealing offer! If it were $99 to your door it might be worth it for the plan and after 90 days you can swap it out with a better device and flip the 510.

      Delete
  6. " but has more bezel than it really should."

    Bezel is one of the least important considerations, like case color. There's a dozen things more important.

    It's one of those things that obsession over can negatively impact design, functionality, and durability. Like the obsession within "thinness" which results in limp phones all with bad batteries.

  8. I use to listen FM radio while on walk. But this, otherwise decent, phone is a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. FM radio is almost nonexistent !!! From 15+ local radio stations I can receive with my 5$ Chinese no-name phone almost anywhere (even under metal roofs) the HTC poorly delivers 2 stations and only outside. And this problem is not a because I own a faulty piece. A lot of user complain about the same issue. So if You like to listen FM from your phone ... choose anything else but not HTC
