RingPlus Ready to Launch New Standard Plans

ringplus-new-standard-plans
RingPlus is getting ready to launch a series of new Standard plans they intend to market as non-promotional plans. These plans are: 

Mad Bottomless Apple ($7.99/Month)

The Mad Bottomless Apple plan comes with 300 talk, 300 text, 300 MMS, 300 MB full speed and unlimited 2G afterwards.
  • Current Member switching to this plan will get 550 MB full speed instead of 300
  • Current Member+ can get 763 MB full speed instead of the original 300.
Mad Bottomless Mango ($19.99/Month)

The Mad Bottomless Mango plan includes unlimited talk, unlimited text, unlimited MMS and 2GB of LTE data speed with unlimited 2G data thereafter. To enjoy more full speed data, RingPlus has included an attractive overage package for users. Member+ has the option of free tethering for this plan.
  • Member+ get 2.37GB LTE instead of only 2GB.
These two plans do not require a Smart Dialer. There are plans to launch a Smart/VoIP Dialer in the future as a special free add on. Upon sign up, a free add-on must be chosen by the member. Both the Mad Bottomless Apple and Mad Bottomless Mango are set to launch at 1PM today, November 30th.

Apart from these two plans, RingPlus has a few other new standard plans available to users. These, however, were launched on Nov. 29, 2016 so they should be available by now:

Mad Avatar ($0/Month)

Mad Avatar comes with 275 talk, 500 VoIP, 275 text, 275 MMS, 500 MB and free tethering.
  • Current Members to switch get to enjoy 750 MB data instead of 500 MB. 
  • Current Member+ will get 963 MB instead of the original 500 MB allotted.

The Mad Bottomless Orange plan comes with unlimited talk, unlimited text, unlimited MMS, 500 MB full speed + unlimited 2G data after.
  • Current Members to switch get 550 MB instead of 500 MB
  • Current Member+ get 963 MB instead of 500 MB

  1. So basically, the $2.99 plan is now $7.99. I've also noticed that none of the paid plans include any VoIP minutes. Leaving those exclusively for the free plan. I take that to mean that the VoIP minutes don't work will enough for RingPlus to charge for them. It seems to me that all the experiments have finally come to an end and that RingPlus will actually start charging for service. That's fine as long as their service actually works and they provide their paying customers with real customer service. They have no more excuses to lack customer service if their customers are paying for service. On one hand, it's a shame the free ride is over. On the other hand, it's no surprise to anyone that their so called business model didn't work out. I don't know what they were trying to prove by giving away free service. I'm more than willing to give RingPlus another chance to prove they're a real service provider, as long as they give us all a reason to believe in them.

  2. Not at all competitive, especially higher end plans. we can get unlimited data for 45 ( autopay) with boost mobile , who want to get 10 gb data for 40 dollars. ?

    1. Well if you don't use more than 10GB then why pay $5 more. Not everyone likes to autopay as well.

      Delete
    2. Obvious answer: Someone who doesn't use more than 10GB and who wants to save $5/mo.

  3. Geez, they make the Mad Plum plan look good at this rate!

    1. I know, I'm thinking I got a pretty good deal by signing up for Plum (Well not really because I was forced to downgrade from BLT). But the data overage costs are terrible on Mad Plum.

  4. Dennis, I thought you said they were going to all paid plans.

  5. I'm a R+ customer and I find their LTE very slow. Realistically is Sprint 2g fast enough for web browsing?

    1. In San Jose, the Ring+ LTE speed is from 5 to 15 mbps. It's not slow at all.

    2. I get 7 to 11 mbps, most place i go.

    4. I get about 11-15 mbps in Las Vegas.

  6. 2,37GB under Mad Bottomless Mango is a typo under the American numbering system :)

  7. Time to move from RP. They limited my speed to 128kbps. I'm thinking about Cricket now.

  8. Another week and another menu of RP plans to choose from. It never gets boring with RP, huh? :)

  9. Guess I'm moving to the Mad Avatar (perfect adjective for that movie lol!) when the 15th comes around.

  10. Do the new paid plans require the smart dialer app?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, the dialer will be optional on paid plans.

  11. They raised the prices from last week. This is the problem with R+, they can't bother to keep their rates standard. These prices are nearly double what they were last week. Its unacceptable.

    1. If you don't like the rates then go elsewhere--don't just talk about it.
      Everyone is whining but no one seems to be leaving.

      Delete
    2. Very true. Lots of complainers but you see they still keep their lines and frequent the forums to complain. A few got banned for trolling and signed back in using an alternate ID, gets caught and banned again. haha

      Delete
  12. Well Ringplus Free plans with big mins, texts and data are over folks. It's time to move on to something else. I will be porting my number away to cricket they got good signal and phone on discount as a new customers.

    1. This is like it was in 2013. Bring back 300x300x300 for $5 top. Get rid of the big data users, they are the ones that milked RP dry.

      Delete
    2. They currently have approximately 100,000 users and need 500,000 for their ad model to work. 300x300x300 won't entice enough people to sign up

      Delete
    3. What they need to do is go smaller data and limit handsets to one free account per person. The free high data brought in the abusers with multiple accounts. If you offer less data you get fewer subscribers but then you also don't need 500,000 subscribers to pay Sprint for less data usage. It wasn't until data was increased, the pigs started abusing the data and the rules then R+ started having money issues. Seems clear who screwed up a good thing.

      Delete
    4. R+ will license their smart dialer to other carriers.
      The 500K figure includes other carrier users who install the app.

      This is like it was in 2013. Bring back 300x300x300 for $5 top. Get rid of the big data users, they are the ones that milked RP dry."

      Ring Plus brought all that on to themselves, they are the ones who offered up the high data allotments to attract as many subscribers as possible to meet their goal of 300K subscribers and it failed miserably.

      Problem is that they knew full well that if they did not meet those numbers they would simply not honor the plans they made available. This alone has labeled them as being untrustworthy and is going to haunt them for a long time to come.

      They now say they need 500K subscribers to make the new scheme viable, well Ting has been around since 2012 and they only have 230K users and that is now split between Sprint and t-Mobile.
      R+ says to build those numbers they are going to partner with other MVNOs to offer their Smart Dialer, but those partnerships can only be based on the dialer and only after it has been proven fully functional and effective.
      Not to mention the Smart Dialer leaves out iPhone and feature phone users and I doubt any MVNO partner is not going to want the full package, at least both Android and iPhone users.

      I just can't see them attracting 500K subs in less than 2 years, do they have two + years to build that subscriber base?

    6. As long as the one talking about pigs isn't bashing single account users as abusers. No one has ever described abuse by a single account user here. Of course only a troll would say that someone is an abuser for using the maximum amount of data they had paid for in their monthly allotment.

      Even when they sign up for multiple lines for oneself and paid Zero per month - violating the Terms of Service? Sounds like abuse to me.

      Delete
    8. The 3:29 commenter specifically mentioned "single account users" as non-abusers. Which renders your "Even when" question as "Well, there's someone else commenting on something without bothering to read it."

      Delete
    9. 3:29 commenter speaks of single accounts... Ringplus accounts can have multiple lines. Looks like new 3:21 commenter does not understand the difference.

      Delete
    10. I don't care. I have one line with one account

      Delete
  13. Speeds have been great for me in denver and phoenix. Theres still a free plan, yippie! Free is a good price for sprint. I always assumed these freebies were introductorary and would eventually transition into paid plans. Personally, i wouldnt pay for sprint; it just doesnt meet my network needs 100%, but thats me. It works just fine and great for many. All the networks fail out in the boonies, but verizon is as good as it gets for rural western usa still.

  14. Did I miss something? When does the topup occur on the new free plan Mad avatar. Also, what is the amount?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The top up on Mad Avatar is $15. It occurs at activation and when ever the account balance is $5 or less. On upgrades the top up is charged if your balance us $5 or less.

  15. My new LG Tribute HD (Boost) hooked up to my RingPlus line on the first try.
    Initial speedtest was 14.3 mbps down and ,9 mbps up with 35ms ping.
    Very nice!

  16. Thanks for all the useful information on this website Dennis! I've been using R+ for nearly a year after reading about it here. In addition to saving money on cell phone service, I've gotten great deals by reading your "Prepaid Phones on Sale" post.

  17. I honestly don't see people signing up for ring plus in a matter of fact I see people leading in doves

  18. The R+ bashers must not be customers. The new plans are terrific - no more music or ads, and no more added latency and calls that fail to go through. I have used R+ for three years and our extended family has five lines. Only one of them costs money now, and that that line is still $15 less than we would pay somewhere else.

    The new direct-Sprint service is going to speed R+ growth, not cut it. As for the data hogs with multiple phones slurping down video - good riddance! Go pay for your bad habits.

  19. I already switched to TPO. No more confusion.

  20. The high data users are bailing like rats. LOL So much for paying for your high data plans, how did that work for you?

    1. Five Freedom Pop sim cards + FP Friends = 😁

    2. FP free data is good but gotta watch out for gotchas!
      Also, juggling multiple hotspots is a hassle.

      Delete
    3. ... agreed, not to mention swapping/juggling SIM cards means possibly losing them and also damaging the SIM trays... rendering a $30 investment of the GSM hotspot useless.

      Delete
  21. How bad is the 2G they give you when all of your data is up?

    I'm thinking of going with the Mad Merry plan since losing my precious BLT plan. I'll be tethering and I'm wondering if 2G will allow me to comfortably view web pages. I can deal without streaming video, but will 2G allow me to send email, browse reddit, and view pages like prepaidphonenews.com comfortably?

    1. I'm in that area... the vast majority of the US... where the Sprint network is 2G or slower (or not there at all).

      I'm able to do this stuff on the 2G
