RingPlus is currently offering three different Special Upgrade Free Plans wherein a one-time upgrade fee is applied to two of the plans. The plans were made for members who are looking at upgrading their current plans. Paid and free plans are available at RingPlus for new activation along with different allotments and Top Ups. The upgrade plans are available from May 5th, 5PM Pacific until May 6th, 5PM Pacific.

    1. The plans ARE free. You pay for overages, swaps, ports, etc.

      Delete
    2. It use to be FREE but no longer. The fanbots demanded that they wanted larger buckets of minutes text and data therefore they had to start charging fees, you can blame the fanbots on social for that. They are the ones responsible for the failed M+. Anyone that tells you that rp is free is either nuts or a fanbot with a little too much kool-aid.

    3. When is the next free plan upgrade promotion for existing-member? Well as Ringplus notify me by email?

    4. Only RingPlus knows when the next upgrade for existing members will be offered. They won't notify you by email but it should be announced on: Announcements - RingPlus Social

      This is not true. You can't see or don't understand the "Totally Free" plan.

  2. definitely their new sign ups are slow due to the new sprint rule. sprint will be forced to take away the rule

  3. I like Ringplus. Still kicking myself for not getting lifetime member+ when it was cheap.

    That said, this company is a crazy maker. The weirdo plans, the nutty timing, the oddball rules. The lack of a mailing list to keep up with the above. This upgrade offering is welcome, but also telling. Is this company like a Ponzi scheme? They seem to be surviving on new signups, which means ultimately it's going to collapse.

    1. It does make one nervous as to their stability. Hopefully, it won't drop off like ptel. But if there is a "price" for each customer and it will float the whole "startup". Wish they had investor money like freedompop though

  5. The new plans tempt you to give up your 2c overages. Eventually when you adjust to "free" and use more, they will make some extra money.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Increasing MMS to 5c ea. makes it an immediate increase in cost to the subscriber.
      For myself I will never see overages on 2500/2500/2500, but MMS is always charged and then add on top a $25 fee that just goes straight to R+, I'll pass for now.

      Delete
    2. We have no problems with MMS charges, since we and almost all our friends and family use iPhones. We only use 3-4 MMS per month, so that is a tiny price to pay for the extra 1.5GB/month we will get with Cool Breeze over our current free plan. And the extra $15 top up is still ours to use for phone swaps and other services. You gotta look at the big picture - do a little math.

      Delete
    3. That is not a $15 top up, it is a $15 fee to upgrade that goes straight in to R+ pocket.

  9. DLex has either been MIA from the forums or assumed a new identify and keeps quiet. :)

    It will be really hard to go over 5000MB with proper data management on background tasks and updates. Of course, unless you stream movies and radios...

    1. The mod "hhfpphone" acts similarly to DLex. He posts a lot of gif's animations to poke fun and make a point, just like DLex. Just like DLex, when someone says they have a problem with R+ service, he immediately states his own R+ service is fine, and insinuates that it's the other persons fault if they have issues. This makes me wonder if they're the same person.

      Delete
    2. you know that dlex has been told to shut up. and his username was taken away from being used in the new forum that no one cannot use it. that really neutered him. the new forum is still full of fools but it is better without that dlex idiot.

    1. No. You can get optional roaming with RingPlus.

      Delete
    2. Roaming is available if you use a credit card as your payment method and either have Member+ or a $50 account balance.

      Roaming rates are 14 cents per minute and 55 cents per MB.

      Delete
    3. $50 minimum balance is required, so in order to keep Roaming enabled you can never dip below $50.
      So the $50 is theirs until you decide you do not want roaming any more.

  12. 1) "Blissful" looks superior to "Cool Breeze" in every way. What am I missing?

    2) Dennis, "Infinity" says "Unlimited 2G-speed data"
    but tethering is removed "once 2G-speed is used". How can 2G speed be used up if it is unlimited? Can you please explain so this doesn't contradict?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There's no contradiction. Used does not mean used up.

      Once you begin using 2G, which happens automatically after 500 MB, tethering is not available.

    3. I'am a lifetime Member+ suscribers that I bought for 40 dollars when it was first offer. Now its 160 if you do payments. I'am going to upgrade for 15 dollars and get 5K everything. I'm set for life unless ringplus goes out of business.

    4. had that Member+ and it's suppose to have priority customer support. put in a couple support tickets for billing issues. but only get autobot responses! and then they closed the tickets! shows you how incompetent their systems are. gave that all up when they started erroneously double-charging and overcharging people's Member+ over there. better to just get out. realized that Member+ is worthless anyways. if anyone is tempted to sign up for ringplus, do not even consider Member+ because its so called benefits are worthless. just sign up for the best free plan. do NOT port in your number because the chances are that you will lose it. do not expect to be able to upgrade your plan because it will be stacked against you where you have to PAY to upgrade. do not expect the coverage to be great because it is lousy sprint coverage. and expect outages where you cannot call out and people cannot call you. just expect lousy coverage, lousy service, and no real customer service.

    5. "just expect lousy coverage, lousy service, and no real customer service."

      Delete
    5. Well the lost number claim may be hyperbole, but it is fact many ports go sideways and take days and weeks to sort out.
      Mostly because they have no one to address them in a timely fashion, so something that can be fixed in minutes languishes in a black hole.

      But they don't mind charging you $25 just to upgrade your plan!

      Delete
    6. ringplus lost numbers can probably be more easily found if you buy Member+ but there is no guarantee that you can cut the weeks off the number being lost in the ringplus muck. only fools take the gamble to port their numbers to ringplus. go ahead and play the odds. get lucky now. but go ahead tempt fate again by porting in another number. the ringplus people acknowledge all the errors and risks that can occur. it's a crapshoot. go ahead, risk your number and tempt fate. pray that you don't get sucked into the ringplus porting hole of lost numbers.

  15. Dennis said, re "Infinity" "There's no contradiction. Used does not mean used up. Once you begin using 2G, which happens automatically after 500 MB, tethering is not available."

    Does this mean that once the 500 MB of LTE is gone, you can't tether?

    Or does it mean that once you access 2G at all (if it is possible get 2G on Sprint just because LTE is not on the tower), it "shuts off" your tether? Even if you have lots of LTE left?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Tethering is available until you have used a total of 500 MB of data regardless of whether its 2G, 3G or 4G LTE.

      After the 1st 500 MB of data has been used tethering is blocked

  17. Not a bad deal, but I wouldn't pay $135 for both unusable 3G AND shitty BYOD.

    In fact, being able to activate prepaid devices straight from Best Buy is what made me consider RP in the first place.

    But now that only the service is subsidized, it's just not worth dealing with the very real risk of falling back to 3G (which sucks too much NOT to be doubly subsidized).

    I'd rather drop $4/mo on US Mobile, pay only for what I need, and not have to worry about 3G speeds or hunting down device upgrades/replacements.

    The fact is, there'll always be another deal.

    Anyway, RP can keep their price increases, moving goalposts and arcane obstacle course of prerequisites.

    I'm out.

    3. "People say they will quit but they dont because they get used to free especially data and sms so they keep ringplus. Fake threats dont scare ringplus"

      Using mostly data and sms should scare R+ more than threats of leaving because that will bankrupt them.

      They need people to use their voice service because listening to the RBT is what subsidizes of the service.

      What is amazing is that after all this time they continue to neglect fixing the core issues with their voice service! Still have quality issues, latency and outages.

      Delete
  20. I get significant latency on calls as well. The lag reminds me of the delay in the moon landing audio. One giant lag for mankind.

    On the other hand, I have a friend in another city who experiences very little lag, so RingPlus is more viable as a daily driver for her. She does keep a GSM phone with a Truphone SIM as backup but rarely needs to use it.

  25. for a free service, these three upgrade plans look like a ripoff. you have to pay a fee to get them. but this is a business that still has to somehow make money. yet ringplus still comes off as being known as the freebie cell phone service.

    oh, and on two of the plans, you have to pay even more for member+ to even pay the fee to get the plan. you have to double pay.

    is that free? no. once you accept that, then you can better accept that this so called free service really is not totally free.

    the upgrade process prior to all this has been a horrible total farce. it was an upgrade waiting list lottery system where you never knew if you would be upgraded. it was like signing up, hoping and wishing for an upgrade that you may never get.

    and now you have a pay to upgrade system where ringplus finally got smart that they now can canabalize on its current users to milk more money out of them by offering pay to upgrade promos.

    yeah, ringplus is free. but ringplus will still find a way to milk money out of its customers that it now has to canabalize.

      If one dislikes the upgrade offer; simple: do not upgrade.

      Case in point: I signed up for VIP Pepper in November, 2015, (250/500/280) which actually meets my mobile telecommunications needs (as in, 100% of my mobile use fits within these buckets). Six months later it still meets those needs, and I have only paid $6.60 total ($5 initial top-up plus 32% local taxes).

      Also note that I continue to maintain a paid primary line of service elsewhere, and am also extremely fortunate to get in on ring.to when signups there were open. Even if Ringplus were to close tomorrow or discontinue my line of service, I've no complaints whatsoever as I've definitely received more than my money's worth.

    3. Regular Sprint stores are not allowed to sell or give you a SIM unless you are a customer. Corporate OWNED stores will give you one or order it for you. If no local store has your part number and you don't want to depend on Sprint or make a long trip, just pay the eBay seller. You'll get it faster.

  28. RP will cease to operate because of the hoarders and their dozens of lines.
    They need to go back to the 500x3 plans--get rid of the highly abusive data users that are costing the company tons! Our family uses RP but the moderator shills/fanboys on social and in the forums are ruining this company, they need to clean house!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The only reason people have dozens of lines is because the data allotments are so low.

      And if they target only barrel-bottom users who don't use data, they'll just wind up alienating a large portion of the market.

      Big spenders (at least among savvy, prepaid subs) want big data that just works.

      But since Sprint data doesn't always work, practically giving away data is the only way they can retain and acquire new customers.

      Of course, it's not data users that boxed them in, though, but rather the fact that they put all their eggs in Sprint's basket even as other Sprint MVNOs like Freedompop, Ting and TPO acknowledge that the writing's already on the wall.

      Trying to sell cheap service on a shitty network is much harder than peddling higher priced plans on any of the Big 3, and it might get worse as more people realize Sprint's network doesn't have much to stand on.

      As for the fanboys, they've always been a problem. But it seems that ever since duhversity, the movers and shakers at RP's have been listening almost solely to their more "supportive" members instead of turning an ear towards the constructive criticism of customers who AREN'T blindly euphoric over "babbies first MVNO."

      Patting them on the back and singing their praises is great and all, but it won't actually do RP any good if their well intentioned but ultimately misguided shills shield them from the reality that there are certain things they need to do to retain customers, prevent bad optics, grow their subscriber base and stay relevant in a competitive market (even if their bottom line takes a temporary hit).

      After all, unhappy and marginalized customers won't remain customers for long, and a business without business won'remain in business.

      But alas, RP's culture probably won't change no matter how desperate for shekels they get.

      It's really a shame, too.

      An MVNO offering GSM service at this price point would've still been worth it.

      Anyway, people can take this rant with a grain of salt because this is coming from an RP member who's about to switch over to Cricket (and who would have already, if Cricket's website actually worked).

      Then again, some would say that the wisest man on a sinking ship is the one who already rowed back to shore.

      you are better off if you start ranting and complaining on their social community forum about their upgrade lists like conversative-blue does incessantly begging for ringplus to respond to his spoiled baby-like cries of why-won't-you-respond-to-me insolence.

    2. es that phone # is obsolete. You can try the chat button that is rarely available on their website, you call fill out a support ticket http://support.ringplus.net/support/home or if it's a simple question you could ask here or ask on their "social" website and one of the fanbots might be able to help you for a "STAR"... Good luck--it's very difficult to nail down an answer with this company.

    3. You can reach RingPlus corporate offices by calling 310-919-0915 and then #5. They encourage you to call in certain circumstances outlined in the TOS; e.g., to obtain your account history when you de-activate service or change your phone number. Otherwise you can look for the chat button. It appears when the support staff is not busy.
