Ended: RingPlus 1000 Minute, 1000 Text, 1000 MB FREE Plan For New Users Now Open

Sprint MVNO RingPlus has opened their Future Free Plan to new subscribers today, Sept 29 from 9 AM to 9 PM PDT. Here are the details from the RingPlus' Discourse forum:
  • The plan includes 1000 minutes, 1000 texts and 1000 MBs of data per month for free
  • If you have an inactive Sprint network device that you want to use for this promotion you can activate it here.
  • If you don’t already have a Sprint phone to activate, you can buy an HTC Desire 510 (B-Stock) for $50 in the RingPlus Store
  • The plan requires users to maintain a cash balance in the account at all times. The balance can be used for overages which are billed at 2 cents per minute, text, or MB and to pay for services like  phone swaps and phone number changes (99¢), MMS (4¢), roaming (14¢/min, 55¢/MB) and international calls. The minimum topup is $5 plus tax. The credit card on file will be automatically charged $5.00 to top up the balance every time it reaches zero. 
  • To qualify for this plan new users also need to share a link to this CNet article about RingPlus on Twitter, include the #ringplus hashtag in their Tweet and link their Twitter account to their RingPlus account.

  1. It says "sign in" for this plan and "sign up" for the other free plans, again ring plus is confusing.

    1. The promo for new customers which runs until 9 PM PDT requires you to link to Twitter.
      The promo for existing customers, which starts at 9 PM PDT requires you to link to Facebook.

  4. If it's for new customers why does it require you to sign in, what exactly would you be signing into? the other free plans quote sign "up".

  5. It asks you to sign in for that plan but when you do it's nowhere to be found.

  6. Sounds like the best scam to get people's info. Offer something free and they will give you all their info without question

    1. Free and high value subscribers ARPUs of $100/month or more, which Big red has the most of, all give awaytheir info without question. Nowadays cellular service is secondary to first getting your information and selling it to "the Data Brokers" .http://www.cbsnews.com/news/data-brokers-selling-personal-information-60-minutes/

  7. Dennis-

    I am a current RP customer, but was able to sign up several new lines on the Future plan today. Will these be disqualified? Various announcements from RP use words like user, member, subscriber, etc, and I don't know what they mean.

    Should I go create a whole new account just to be safe? That would suck though because I'd have to create another twitter account too.

    So lost. Thought maybe you could help. Thanks.

    1. If RingPlus let you create the new lines I think you should be able to keep them.

  8. Why? The stated rules that this promo is for New Members isn't enough?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The rules state that this promo was for "new subscribers," not new members or new acocunts, as far as what I have read in my 3+ hours focused on this process today. Obviously I am wasting my time because it is no more clear to me how to properly do this promo than it was when it began.

      At no point was I attempting to circumvent any rules. When I signed into my account today I was instructed by a banner to click if I was interested in adding the Future 3 plan, so I clicked. Then I added lines. My belief was that "new subscriber" meant "new line."

      The information is very confusing. This whole day of promos is a mess.

  9. I signed up but it hasn't charged me anything for Future 3.0. Should that be expected?

    1. Considering it's free, probably.

    2. Accprding to the Discourse post announcing this promo:
      "After the first month on the Plan, if you want to keep it, the Plan will require a minimum $5.00 Top-Up balance to be maintained on the account for overages which are billed at 2 cents per minute, text, and MB. This means your credit card on file will be automatically charged $5.00 every time your Top-Up balance goes to $0.00".

  10. Can't wait until 9pm. I'm going to upgrade all 4 lines to the future plan.

    1. Cool, don't leave any for anybody else!!!

    2. How much of a cash balance has to be in the account at all times?

      Delete
    3. I don't care about anybody else. I only care about me, myself, and what I can get. Once it hits 9 p.m. sharp I will be clicking upgrade on all four lines before anybody else does I will be ready.

  11. 2nd month $5 charge is applied

  12. The high roaming charges and lack of native Sprint coverage in places where I regularly travel make this a no-go for me.

    1. Yes, Sprint is good for people living in major city only. not good in country side.

      Delete
    2. yes Sprint & Ring+ is no good for you if you happen to live in an area that Sprint does not recognize as existing. sorry but you don't exist as far as Sprint is concerned.

      Delete
    3. I signed up and got one. Was curious to see if what Sprint said about massively adding new towers since I left Sprint was true.

      Nope no bars in most places, a few i some places. But hey, better than T-Mobile.

  13. Just activated another one of my old virgin phone. Virgin has a universal MSL which was revealed in Discourse. Hope I can update all of my phones as well.

    1. Maybe this is also a part of the research project, to see whether their server could handle the DDOS attack.

      The result is, their server crashed, and their plan sold out in less than 3 minutes.

  16. This is great I didnt even get a chance to do anything. wow what a mistake to announce it to people should have just kept it as flash promo with no announcement.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Finally did get through got the blue button but could go further. Was able to get through to sign up for a new plan, so I will settle for that.
