RingPlus Offers New Mad Promo 6 Plan

ringplus-mad-promo-6
RingPlus has just announced a new free plan called the Mad Promo 6. The free allotments included in this plan are:

Mad Promo 6 - Free $0/Month
  • 1,450 talk
  • 1,450 text
  • 1,450 MMS
  • 1,450 MB LTE Full Speed 
  • Unlimited LTE at 2G data speed (Tethering included)
Mad Promo 6 - Upgrade 2GB ($4.99)
  • 2,000 talk
  • 2,000 text
  • 2GB LTE Full Speed 
  • Unlimited LTE at 2G data speed (Tethering included)
Mad Promo 6 - Upgrade 3GB ($14.99)
  • 3,000 talk
  • 3,000 text
  • 3GB LTE Full Speed 
  • Unlimited LTE at 2G data speed (Tethering included)
Mad Promo 6 - Upgrade 5GB ($24.99)
  • 5,000 talk
  • 5,000 text
  • 5GB LTE Full Speed 
  • Unlimited LTE at 2G data speed (Tethering included)

The new plan is available starting October 28, 2016 at 11:30 AM Pacific and ends on October 31, 2016 at 10:00 PM Pacific. It is open to both new and current members. Activation fee is $15 and is charged directly to the credit card. For users who have a balance less than zero, an initial $20 top-up balance is required to cover overages; which are at 10 cents per unit, talk, text and MMS. Since the plan already includes unlimited LTE data at lower speed, there is no risk of overages. The plan also includes free porting.

RingPlus requires a Smart Dialer or VoIP dialer, when it becomes available. For users who have a feature phone, the MVNO offers loaner phones that are equipped with dialers already. Existing Members who still wish to revert back from this plan to their current plan may be able to do so. There is a switching period of two weeks after the new Dialer System testing.

  1. One important caveat is that you can only use "up to 40%" of the plan's allotted data for tethering. Tethered data above that amount will be subjected to overage rates, at 10cents/MB ($102.40/GB). You can buy a $15 "tethering protection" for a particular month to avoid this. In other words, pay attention to the fine print.

  2. Another important caveat about Ringplus. I tell family & friends now that Ringplus will NOT honor their promotions. Maybe good for 1.5 months and then the plan is ruined, data almost to a stop for example.

    1. No idea what you are talking about. Member for a year now and always have fast speed outside... sometimes slow inside due to walls blocking cell signal.

    2. Anonymous 5:53 is probably referring to the "Surfing" plans which involve unbearable throttling.

  3. You may want to mention that iPhone users "may be required" to install a VOIP app. What exactly this means for iPhone users is not clear. It would be a great update, since it includes tethering. However, since everyone in my family uses iPhones, I am very leery of this upgrade. Even if it is free ($15 activation fee will be waived Sat-Mon for people with Mad/Surfing and Member+)

  4. This may not necessarily be an error, but should Unlimited LTE at 2G read Unlimited data at 2G?

    1. It's probably unlimited LTE data at 2G speeds. Real 2G (1xRTT) is slightly less efficient in terms of spectrum use than LTE. Plus Sprint needs all its 2G spectrum for voice as neither 3G EV-DO or Sprint's VoLTE-less LTE support voice.

    1. Ny RingPlus Dashboard still has Lifetime Member+ available for $120.00. But I have no idea what it's good for anymore. Member+ seems to have quietly faded away.

  8. I already have 1200mB plan with tethering included. these new offerings go in the trash! (just playing along with the trash man troll who frequents this board)

  9. I'm sorta tempted to hook another RP line till they implode. but, what the heck would I do with another sprint based (crippled) network? maybe I could use the number to port out in a few months and snag one of the freebies metro or cricket hand out...

    1. I simply don't understand why people would sign up for something that doesn't work for them. I suppose you have a lot in common with most rp users!

  10. ringplus dialer? it's not even out yet! first the R+ people in their one hour forum announcement make a big deal saying they will stop coming out with new plans using the old RBT system. then they change their mind and come out with the free witch hazel plan that is just like the old RBT plans. ringplus says one thing and then contradicts itself. at this rate, ringplus will probably eventually say nevermind and forget the new dialer and pretend they never brought it up. ringplus is so wishy washy in its management.

  11. I have mad barbecue brisket plan and my data is throttle to a snail. Ringplus will hook you in with a plan and then down the road two months later the plan is useless this has been their MO people please be aware of it .

    1. Member for a year now and always have fast speed... You signed up for a experimental throttling plan and now complain about throttling. I think you need to look in the mirror for the "problem".

    2. RingPlus far more than any other carrier has legions of fanboys quick to blame the customer when the carrier provides rather lousy service.

      Next up, the Cotton Mather contingent of RingPlus fanboys who point a finger and bellow "Abuser!" at anyone who uses more than 6mb out of the 6gb monthly plan they have paid for.

  12. Everybody in my house use ringplus ( 4 lines). I use iphone. I had some coverage problems. but when i switched off LTE, it is getting better coverage. In places where i have no coverage at all i have verizon roaming. I got better coverage in android also when i switched off LTE. Happy to save almost 1200 dollars a year and thanks to prepaid phone news for giving us all the news..

    1. So what you are saying pal, is that if you are using ringplus on an iPhone, specifically turn off LTE and the experience will be a lot better?

      Delete
  13. Yes, turn on LTE only when u need. U can check it out.

  14. I will pay my monthly bill for safe connection. I have a job and familiy so I do not want connecting problem. Thus, RingPlus is unreliable and useless.

  15. As of this writing, I have received close to 51 weeks of nearly free service on RingPlus' original Ringback Tone service and have had a good experience for 11 months due to having low expectations and not using RingPlus as my primary line.

    However, I would suggest exercising grave caution to anyone considering their current plans. As of this moment, due to billing/usage issues reported by myself and other users (some of whom have reported huge hits to their cards on file for billbacks on previous usage cycles), the only thing I can really use R+ for is outgoing voice calls and SMS, and in the Q&A archive the official suggestion to those of us with service issues is to 'switch to a new plan' (Page 3 of that thread IIRC).

    1. Happening just to a couple people probably means user error rather than an R+ issue. Sometimes you have to be smarter than your phone.

    2. What do you mean by the billbacks?

    3. Family has been members for about a year now. Never had a billback problem you described.

  16. Lots of people are reporting throttled data like myself to almost nothing. And they even emailed me too. They broke their promise. I am unrecommending them now. No more Ringminus.

    2. With >100K users, how many complainers would equate to "a lot"?

    3. I just checked on two R+ phones we have, one 3G only (moto g 1st gen) and one LTE 4G (moto e) and data speeds seem normal, video streams fine. Both are on the "legacy" (latency) RBT system not mad or surfing plans

  17. I still tell people to use them, I just advise them to go with the smaller plans.

    1. Just need to understand the terms. People sign up for throttling plans then complain once throttling experiment starts... hello??? :)

    2. "I still tell people to use them."

      They probably never speak to you again.

  18. I got ten or more text and MMS messages from four different numbers I've never seen before in the space of a few minutes with a few more some hours later all on the same day. All the messages appeared to be meant for other people possibly several other people. I was charged extra for the MMS messages but my online bill only lists my own number on the charges even though all the messages show different numbers on my phone. I don't care about the charges but why did I get messages from four different numbers I don't know almost all at the same time? Has this ever happened to anyone else on Ringplus?

  19. Check your RP phones.. a high number of reports on social that they are cancelling accounts some without and some with calls using the 60 day rule. Looks like thy found a way to start cancelling peoples free plans.
    Wait till they start enforcing the new TOS rules.

    ReplyDelete

    1. It was bound to happen sooner or later but truthfully if you are unable to make a couple calls in 60 days then you don't need the phone. I am glad to see that they are suspending lines that use only data and make no voice calls.

      Delete
  20. To those saying "you're complaining that R+ is throttling like they said they would,": what they said was they were going to experiment with ways to throttle WITHOUT THE USER NOTICING! There's NO way they can claim we wouldn't notice speeds as low as 0.03mbps.

    Personally I don't have a problem with throttling as long as it's to a REASONABLE speed.

    1. Absolutely--but you're responding to a shill/fanboy and most of them only care about their service, it's only about them!
      RP is making some really stupid decision lately and I'm wondering how long before people realize that they are only the product of RP not a valued customer.

  21. A few things (I realize this comment section isn't a forum per se):

    Re: Anon. @ October 29, 2016 at 7:34 AM
    This works on all phones in areas where Sprint LTE service is poor. My Android phone has options for "LTE/CDMA" and "CDMA" (only), the latter of which provided slightly more stable service at the tradeoff of using Sprint 3G EVDO.

    Re: Anon @ October 31, 2016 at 1:29 PM
    Sounds similar to my issue with data billing, however I've always had MMS disabled on my R+ Dashboard. A possibility is someone is manually mistyping a number on their phone, causing the messages to reach you. On a string of misdialed SMS messages I once politely let the sender know they had the wrong number.

    Re: Comments pertaining to my issue
    This is on a phone that isn't associated with a Google Account or any other app stores, a browser with adblock (it won't even contact ad websites) and images turned off, has no auto-updates, and unused apps disabled. Everything one can think of that could use data is disabled or restricted. I shut data off on my R+ Dashboard and decided to be done with it.

    Re: Anon @ October 31, 2016 at 5:42 PM
    Thanks for the heads-up on the latest round of account cancellations, everything appeared otherwise fine when I checked my account a few hours ago.

  22. Seems very sad to me that Ring Plus has to BRIBE for up votes on other websites. The more up votes the more data they give you. Amazingly people are actually falling for that tactic and up voting them. Sorry but I won't up vote or give a postivie review of a bad company just for a bribe. So sad to see people can be so easily influenced.
