RingPlus Releases Oak Plan and Pure Oak Plan

ringplus-oak-plan
RingPlus has released a couple of plans today, the Oak Plan and the Pure Oak Plan. Get to know the differences between these two plans here:

Oak Plan

The Oak Plan is a free monthly plan that comes with the following:
  • 1000 VOIP minutes per month for outgoing call. Incoming calls are directly routed through Sprint and are deducted from 200 regular minutes
  • 200 Regular Minutes per month
  • 750 SMS per month
  • 750 MMS per month
  • 750 MB LTE Full Speed per month
  • International calling with Mad Pure Oak only 
Pure Oak Plan

Just like the Oak Plan, the Pure Oak Plan is a free monthly plan with the following inclusions:
  • 2000 VOIP minutes per month
  • 200 Regular Minutes per month
  • 750 SMS per month
  • 750 MMS per month
  • 750 MB LTE Full Speed per month
  • International calling with Pure Oak only 

Both the Oak and Pure Oak plans include tethering and use on tablets. They are also eligible for upgrades. To get either plan, a Top-up balance of $15 is required. Once the balance reaches $5, Top-up will reload. The Top Up will cover all monthly charges and overages. Overages are at 5 cents per talk and text and $14.99 per GB.

  1. These must be, what, the 78th and 79th new plans this year? Absurd.

    1. That's about 5 more than their number of satisfied customers

  2. AGREED. I almost just wish they'd go away. Although, it's been said, that there is no such thing as bad publicity... maybe this is strategic in order to get their brand stuck in our minds.

    1. Sad but true. Ringplus has high turn over rate. They abruptly end current plan and then force you to add more money. We need a way to pass on this kind of review to new users.

    2. Wow, had my line for 2 years and never had to add any money. Anonymous reply at 5:55PM PST must have been busted for not abiding by the Terms of Service.

    3. They don't care about bad publicity. If they can get people talking then the rest just happens members at R+ are like sheep.
      Look, porting works sometimes, the member hangouts was a failure other than a few teens and millennials showing up for a free slice of pizza, lag still is not fixed for many but they do nothing, classifieds is broke and has been since August, support takes weeks or months in some cases, the TOS issue persists, people are mad about the throttling that makes data unusuable but they don't respond, people are mad about the account cancellations (with nearly 14,000 views and posts in one thread and management won't respond & the mod/fanboys only making people mad with their replies, now everyone is waiting for a new dialer (not yet developed but plans being sold for the dialer) yet many people believe like most things at RP that the dialer will never quite work or may never happen. R+ is a disaster, prices keep increasing thanks to the fanboys (they asked for higher prices) and the minutes continue to decrease. Imagine if any other company ran it's daily operations like that--would they still be in business without the fanboys and the moderators in the forum covering up the truths? I wish them luck but it's hard to believe anyone could run a company this poorly!

    4. Under the terms of service, you can be busted for simply making calls, doing texts, or using the data that you paid for.

  3. Do you think the R+ minions come up with these stupid plans during a long night of drinking?

    1. Wow, so the names are voted/chosen by the members?

    2. Seriously? Do you know the definition of "minion"? OH BOY & this is who uses ringplus.

  4. Is it just me or is there no reason to choose the Oak plan (1000 min) instead of the Pure Oak (2000 min) plan?

    There's a Mad pure oak plan too?

  5. I will stick with my legacy plans that does not require app download or VoIP app install on my phone these plans are garbage

    ReplyDelete
  6. I just checked my R+ account and see I can upgrade to either a Mad Oak (1000 VOIP minutes), or a Pure Oak (2000 VOIP). Looks like the "Oak Plan" listed above actually refers to "Mad Oak". FWIW, still a satisfied R+ customer, going on 11 months with them.

    ReplyDelete
  7. No "Oak" plan, "Mad Oak" & "Pure Oak". I think (in typical ring+ fashion) they initially typoed the announcement and then corrected it within a half hour or so.

    "Mad" would imply direct Sprint routing of calls.

    I have a few phones on Ring+, one over 2 years, a few over a year and have never had to add an additional penny to any of them after initial "top up" or have the plan canceled/changed. I did pay a fee that mostly got added to the "top up" balance to upgrade a line to a much more generous allotment plan.

    They certainly are different and strange in comparison to traditional MVNO and customer service is very scant and DIY but quite frankly I'd rather deal w/them vs. America Movil flakey customer disservice circus. My feeling is that if you understand what ring+ is, how they work (and don't), some people can use ring+ and their service to their benefit.

    1. I agree. I did switch phones often, so the new $4.99 fee will slow me doing that.

      CS varies based on whether the problem is hard or easy, and sometimes whether they make extra money:

      - R+ abandoned my port in when their web automation froze during processing and submitted bad port info. Too hard to get Sprint to correct the port request, so they just closed the ticket without action or explanation. That phone number is now permanently stuck with another carrier; they won't process a second port request until the R+ port is corrected.

      - It took R+ 2 weeks after ticket created to cancel my temp number and release my phone due to the above issue. The online account had disappeared, but the temp number stayed live for two months.

      - I asked to switch from Surfing 1.0 to Relaxed 1.0 due to 300 mbps throttle. Within one day the option for Relaxed 3.0 appeared in my online account (they did not type any response on the ticket).

      - I swapped a LTE phone without entering the SIM ID. No way to add it later except to swap MEID off, then back on again ($9.98). That would not work because their system still ID my previous phone as still active after 2 days (not released). R+ did the swap for me overnight using one of their phones. They still charged my cash balance the $9.98, which I expected.

      "That phone number is now permanently stuck with another carrier; they won't process a second port request until the R+ port is corrected."

      If you file an FCC complaint against Sprint and R+ then that problem will disappear.

  8. When you dial out with their new dialer app, the minutes you use would be counted as VOIP minutes ? Please advise

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No one knows that for sure because the dialer is not even in production yet. I wouldn't hold my breath either way because nothing RP has ever done has worked for very long or the way they anticipated it to work!

      Delete
    2. Yes, your outgoing calls with the dialer will count against VOIP minutes. This is why I am sticking with my older plans. When latency is bad, I just use my VOIP app at no charge to my plan minutes (the call uses my data allotment).
      The only advantage of these new plans over most old-style free plans is that when other people call you, there is a clear Sprint connection with normal latency. But you pay 5c/minute once you use up the included 200 incoming minutes.

    3. Re: November 11, 2016 827AM

      You sure do sound sure of yourself considering the app is not available yet! Perhaps we can all use your post as a guarantee?
      I'd bet you're a sleeze fanboy or shill.

  9. People are still upgrading? Keep upgrading every few weeks people because your upgrade fees pay for the rest of us that have not upgraded for 2 years! lol

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sometimes it is worth it to upgrade. Compared to my initial plan with 1200mb free, I've since upgraded to 5000mb free plan. I no longer have to watch my data use for my family lines closely as we use less than half that each month. Definitely worth it.

      Delete
  10. these oak plans are so stupid. use voip for calling out. use cell minutes for incoming calls. what the frak is that?!??! there are no more good plans anymore.

    R+ is going down the drain. R+ must be losing resources and has to revert to voip to do calls. why even bother with R+ anymore? if didn't have family on ringplus, would just stop using R+ and forget that R+ even exists. R+ is just looking so stupid nowadays. R+ is now a joke. really cannot recommend R+ to anyone anymore.

    oh and that dialer? it will never happen. or it will be super buggy. what do they call that? vaporware! R+ is now just hiding behind smoke and mirrors. my bet is R+ will not last beyond 2016. or it is sure to go up in smoke in 2017.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Supposedly the new dialer is NOT VoIP, it's supposed to route calls directly over Sprint's network, but play ads from a local cache (which gets updates downloaded daily, so make sure you're on WiFi when that happens) instead of the old way of routing through distant R+ servers. Kind of an attempt to make a better version of ad-supported calling during ringback period.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I bet we see many complaints coming from people that are running out of data because of these daily advertising downloads. What I really don't understand is rp offering dialer plans with a product that is not yet in development or testing. This company does everything backwards, no wonder things are so screwed up with them. What are the odds that the dialer either never happens or when it does it does not work as it should!

      Delete
  12. They really can't get anything right on these, many people reporting calling over VOIP is being deducted from the 200 cellular balance. In addition no one can answer what countries are included in international calling and what the per min. rates are for international calling.

    I use Ringplus and am perfectly OK with what I have for what I paid but they really need to get their stuff together way better than this last miserable offering / implementation.

    1. Of course they can't answer anything--they don't even know themselves and the moderators in the forum are useless. Nothing worse than a fanboy/shill that is drunk on kool-aid & that just hangs around for the freebies and every opportunity to insult users. Of course they know nothing!

      Delete
    2. Yeah, but my point really was that this promo seemed way worse to me re questions going unaddressed. Always lots of questions but in the past it seemed to me they got addressed/answered pretty quick and usually before the promo expired, this time the international issue is being completely ignored and the SIP min. getting charged to regular allotment gets a weak "hopefully they will fix it soon, depending on what your definition of soon is" Very weak.

      I like what I have with them, I would like to see them do better, not go under.

  13. Discontinued Plans
    & Free Holding Plans Notice

    Dear Members,

    RingPlus has to switch to a new system. Sadly, because of this switch, we will have to discontinue your current plan. Therefore, your current plan can’t be renewed (full list of plans below).

    At the end of your billing cycle, we will switch you to a temporary holding plan so that your service is not interrupted. The temporary holding plan will have limited allotments of 200 minutes, 200 texts, 200 MMS, and 200 MB LTE (full speed).

    The temporary hold plan is only active for 30 days. During those 30 days, please choose any of the currently available free or paid plans offered on our website. In the event that you do not choose a new plan within the 30-day period, your account will be suspended (which means you will lose service, but your phone number will be preserved for 30 more days).

    In call applications will not be available on our currently offered plans until our new system including a Smart and VoIP Dialer applications will be offered. If you chose to switch to one of our lowest priced paid plans in the U.S. currently offered on our website, you will be able to download a Smart Dialer when the dialer becomes available (if and only if you want to).

    Best regards,
    RingPlus

  14. Any news yet on R+ cancelling plans? Suppose to happen today!

    This was a post by a moderator about plans being cancelled:
    hhfpphone Ethical Committee 202 2:08AM
    Perhaps those plans ran out of money. Remember, these plans are sponsored, not a government entitlement.

    This mod is a idio* the way it is but if this is true there will be a lot of PO'd peeps!

    1. Tello will cost more. At least $15 to start, then $5 more every 6 months for PayGo.
      Monthly plan is at least $10 to start, then $5/month after that.

    2. People I sign up wasn't use all 125 min

    3. My relative doesn't use much on Truly Free 3 either. But it still costs less to top up $10 and then switch to Mad Oak than any other carrier alternative. Isn't that what those older people want, the lowest cost plan for very low use?

      Delete
  18. RingPlus says they're cancelling these plans because they're switching to a new system but there are many other legacy plans on the old system that aren't getting cancelled. RingPlus could at least not lie to our faces as to why they're really cancelling only some plans. Based on the list of cancelled plans, they seem to be cancelling plans with the highest allotments and some totally free plans. So basically plans that are either a net loss for RingPlus or aren't making them any money. They could just say that in their email. More people would respect them for their honesty.

    ReplyDelete
  19. They did the same thing 2 years ago only to fewer members. I'd bet that most of the old plans not dialer compatible will be gone in no time.

    What's really sad is thousands of posts on their forum and management
    can't or won't make a statement. The only thing we get are rude comments from the mods. Rplus deserves everything that is happening to them now!

    3. Which is full of half truths and spin. I read it and it makes no sense other than ringplus wants to be done with the $5 & $10 top up plans that are a few years old and people didn't upgrade giving ringplus more $

    4. The person at 12:25 must be from ringplus. Sad. They think they are entitled to how they behave.

  20. R+ is letting you switch to Mad Oak if your cash balance is more than $5.

    Better than paying $15 plus $2.47 tax.

  22. Ringplus social community unreachable for me ATM. Matbe all the po'ed "members" overwhelming the servers, maybe they just don't want to hear it, maybe someone pulled the plug? Phone service still working....... for now

    ReplyDelete
  23. four phones on ringplus. one of them is officially cancelled and i expect the other three will be cancelled soon. i don't use them except for the kids on car trips as coverage is terrible where i live. i guess i'll downgrade to one of the new plans, but as soon as they want more money, i'll let them die. it was interesting while it lasted, but it was never good enough to actually use as a main line. I have five lines on cricket for $100 and those have been rock solid.
