RingPlus Opens Waitlist for Customers Wishing to Upgrade to a Better Free Plan

RingPlus Upgrade Waitlist Page
Freemium Sprint MVNO RingPlus has opened a wait list for current free plan members who would like to upgrade to a better free plan.

The list is open for a limited time at promos.ringplus.net/upgrades-lists.html.If you signup there you are requesting an upgrade to either the Goya free plan or the Dali plan which RingPlus calls a free plan but which apparently actually costs $5/month.

The Goya plan includes 1750 minutes, 1750 texts and 1750 MB of data per month for free. A $20 (plus about 20% in taxes and fees) top up will be charged when you upgrade and added to the plan balance. With past upgrade waitlists a top-up was not charged if member's current free plan already had a a non-zero balance but there's no guarantee that this waitlist will work the same.

If the plan balance ever reaches zero the account will be topped with $20 again. The plan balance can be used to pay for overages at 2¢ per minute, text or MB of data, for MMS which cost 4¢ each or extra cost services like port-ins, and phone number and device changes.

The Dali plan is identical to Goya except that it includes tethering and hotspot at a cost of $5/month. There's some confusion about whether the thering add on is optional or not but users who signed up for Dali reportedly were charged $5 in addition to the $20 top up.

Members will presumably be upgraded in the order they signed up for the waitlist. The number of members allowed to upgrade is based on how many new signups RingPlus' current Cèzanne promotion generates. Cèzanne, which is for new signups only, runs through Noon local time Saturday and includes 1800 minutes, 1800 texts and 1800 MB of data per month for free with a $20 top-up at activation and whenever the plan balance reaches zero.

In addition to Cèzanne, is also offering free port-ins plus data and top-up bonuses for port-ins to paid plans. For information about all of RingPlus' current promos pleas visit PrepaidPhoneNews' continuously updated RingPlus Promotions Tracker.

  1. For who wants to upgrade their new plan... why don't you try re-sign up? Impossible?

    1. You can't just cancel your plan and sign up for a new one. They blacklist devices that were on a free plan until you meet their cooling off requirements. I think a couple of months is enough but I haven't tested it yet. I cancelled my VIP Pepper last week and stuck the phone in a drawer so it can be used on a better promotion after it cools off.

  3. 2000 mins, 2000 texts and 2000 mbs is just around the corner. The people at Ringplus have thought about it and are just holding it back until the get enough people to sign up and when it reaches its peak they will release the plan.

    Pass.

    I'll wait until my existing top-up is gone before I get back on Karl Seelig's Wild Ride.

    After all, it never ends.

    2. Thanks, but does the balance carry over, say I buy a gig of data in the middle of my billing period and use say half of it by the end of my billing period, is it a use it or lose it situation? Thanks

  7. The add on only good for 30 days from their billing date. The carry over for 60 days was only for the Diversity and Jasmine Plans. Depending on your usage needs, I find it more convenient to start the add on mid cycle of the plan.

  8. Now that I'm out of work for good I've never even had to do an add-on. Under $1000 and free cell service for life or until they go under or can't afford it anymore. I still think paid subscribers get priority, but I guess that's the nature of the beast.
