RingPlus' New Plans Route Directly Via Sprint (Sans Ads, Radio, Etc)

ringplus-mad-plans
RingPlus is answering the demand from its Members to come up with another type of service separate from the ones they currently offer. And as Members have requested, the service should use the regular Sprint Nationwide Network for making calls without ads, RingPlus Radio, in-call apps, and many others.

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.

Mad Plans

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.

  3. I have no issues with Sprint in my area. Its better than AT&T and T-Mobile in Colorado Springs area.

    1. I guess I've gone completely off the deep end. I use RingPlus and my primary, but with Hangouts/Google Voice. I virtually never use their "minutes" so the delay dosn't affect me.

      Sprint Coverage is fine where I live. If I know I am going to wander, I simply grab my clone phone with the FreedomPop GSM SIm installed. Other than the cost of SIM and one time top-up at RP, I haven't paid a cent for service in months.

    2. Better make sure you are making a connected outgoing phone call at least every 60 days.

      RingPlus recently downgraded a bunch of people to Truly Free plans with 125 minutes, 50 texts and 15 MB, who hadn't.

      Some people have racked up charges from the resulting overages since they didn't know they were downgraded.

      I suspect this may just be the beginning of them trying to rid themselves of "members" who are primarily using data.

  4. I don't mind the adds at ask, it's the voice delay that made me stop paying my member +. And since when did $27 become to expensive for 3gigs and unlimited t&t?

    1. That's $27+TAX, versus a straight $30 for Boost, or a straight $35 for Cricket (with decent AT&T coverage instead of horrid Sprint coverage). Only the very lowest-cost 1gb plan might get a few interested users.

    I've been on RingPlus for nine months now, at an amount that currently comes to 73⅓¢/month. Has satisfied my curiosity and interest in a second line for things like Craigslist and outgoing calls to phone numbers with long wait times. Service hasn't been perfect, however I've definitely received my money's worth. And I've liked the idea of plans that are free after an initial top-up, plus the paid options for those interested in additional service.

    What concerns me about this offer is it's almost like RingPlus is recognizing a flaw in its custom voice call routing (which does have perks when they work) and becoming a general Sprint MVNO that is trying to compete with all other carriers/MVNOs based solely on cost. And when this cost is only a few dollars more per month than the offering price for their other paid options, it really makes this subscriber wonder.

  6. The only thing I wanted was cheaper phones, cheaper data, better free plans and GSM coverage.

    1. Can you please explain? I am genuinely interested in Airvoice. I see that it is significantly more expensive. At least $30 for 1GB, which is much more expensive than $7.

  8. No thanks. If i wanted to pay for sprint service i'll get boost mobile.

  9. Text now wireless....it unlimited cross broad.. data get higher than it drop but still

  10. I am paying for a Sprint MVNO and this is mostly competitive if you don't do exhaustive research or if all you need is voice.

  11. I Use ringplus, but only for a backup. In some places it has LTE where Verizon & AT&T don't. But I'm in the boonies quite often so I have to have either Verizon or AT&T service, mainly for voice and text. Data is secondary to me, as I'm either in the office, home, or the courtroom, all which have WIFI.
