Answering this demand from Members, RingPlus has announced a set of new cell phone plans that directly routes through Sprint's network instead of going through RingPlus' servers first. In addition to this, these new plans will no longer have RingPlus Radio, any ads, and in-call apps. And since the new plans route through Sprint's network directly, any deference issues experienced by RingPlus members while they are on a call can be resolved easily.
Unfortunately, because these new plans route directly through Sprint's network, they will have a price slightly higher compared to the regular and freemium plans offered by RingPlus. But if you don't want to encounter RingPlus Radio or any ads, this is the price you'll have to pay. RingPlus has named these new plans as "Mad Plans". And although they are priced higher than the plans offered originally by RingPlus, they are still competitive and could even be among the cheapest plans on the market running on Sprint's network.
There are 3 different options you can get under RingPlus' Mad Plans. These plans differ in the amount of data available but still come with unlimited talk, text, and MMS.
- Mad Scientist Plan: $15.99/month ($6.99 with Member+) includes 1GB of data
- Mad Hatter Plan: $22.99/month ($12.99 with Member+) includes 2GB of data
- Mad Mad Plan: $26.99/month ($17.99 with Member+) includes 3GB of data
Tethering is available as an Add On option for only $9.99 per month. For data overages, there will be a charge of $15 per GB billed in increments of 1GB. Within the first couple weeks of launch, voicemail will be made available at no extra cost. The languages will be available in English and Spanish. Off network roaming will also be available but will require a minimum top up of $50. These prices do not include taxes and fees, which vary according to region.
As part of its promotion, RingPlus is offering a discount on all Mad Plans for the first month of service. Starting July 14th, you can get these plans at 50% off and get free number porting. The offer lasts until July 21st.
