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.
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.
