RingPlus has announced a new promotion for existing RingPlus members. Tomorrow Tuesday Sept. 29 starting at 9 PM PDT, the Future Free Plan Phase 3 with 1000 minutes, 1000 texts and 1000 MBs of data per month for free will be available to existing RingPlus members "while supplies last".
RingPlus defines an existing member as anyone with an active RingPlus account prior to 6 PM PDT today 9/28/2015.
Because this promo is for existing members I believe that it will offer an opportunity to switch an existing plan to the Future Free Plan rather than one to activate a new line of service.
RingPlus' initial announcement doesn't say anything about this plan requiring an initial payment. But if it works like RingPlus' previous Future Free plans, users will be required to maintain a cash balance in the account. The balance can be used for overages which are billed at 2 cents per minute, text, or MB and also for phone swaps and phone number changes (99¢), MMS (4¢), roaming (14¢/min, 55¢/MB) and international calls. The credit card on file will be automatically charged $5.00 every time the balance goes to $0.00.
I believe that to link your Facebook account to your RingPlus account you just need to login to your RingPlus Dashboard, click the Your Social Networks button and then click the Connect to your Facebook Account button. See the image above for the location of the button which says "Remove Link" after you have linked to Facebook.
Don't have a FaceBook account? You have 26 hours to create one. I think the only verifiable information needed to create a Facebook account is an email address or phone number. If you are worried about Facebook's privacy or lack thereof there are many services that let you create a disposable email address.
Update 9/28 11PM PDT: RingPlus also announced new paid plans with new names. They are similar to the old paid plans but include more data.
