RingPlus Has Dropped Its Lawsuit Against Sprint

ringplus-logo
RingPlus has decided to throw in the towel. Earlier today, a link was posted in social.ringplus.net, and clicking that link will take readers to a PDF file that indicates the MVNO’s voluntary dismissal of its lawsuit against Sprint. RingPlus used to lease network capacity from Sprint, but a little more than a week ago, it had filed a complaint against the major US wireless carrier in a California district court, suing for fraud, breach of contract, and extortion, among many others.

It was later revealed that at the time of the filing of the lawsuit, Sprint had already shut down the APIs used by RingPlus to enable new customer activations. It was also reported that the number 4 biggest mobile operator in America had notified RingPlus that it will be deactivating all wireless service to the MVNO effective on February 11th. That deadline has since been extended to February 21st.

Obviously, one major concern for RingPlus was its customers, who now had to deal with the fact that their wireless service was going to be discontinued soon. Last week, it was reported that RingPlus users were to be migrated to Ting Mobile (another MVNO on Sprint’s network). The said migration was scheduled to commence this week, with all active phone numbers on RingPlus to be moved to Ting. Once the phone numbers are moved, the owners of those numbers will then receive an email from Ting containing instructions on how to confirm the migration with Ting, port their phone number, or otherwise, terminate their line of service altogether.

Of course, for sure there will be users preferring to retain their phone numbers and port them to a different provider (that’s not Ting). They can do that through Google Voice, another MVNO on Sprint’s network, either one of Sprint’s prepaid arms (Boost Mobile or Virgin Mobile), or choose to port to a carrier that’s not on Sprint’s network. For more information about this, you can head to this page.

  1. Google Voice is a call forwarding and voice mail service. How is it a Sprint MVNO? Project Fi is Google's Sprint MVNO.

    "They can do that through Google Voice, another MVNO on Sprint’s network,"

  2. I guess they must not have been able to pay the lawyers either

    1. More likely a more competent lawyer informed them their lawsuit was completely without merit and making false statements in a legal document may get their rear in hot water.

    2. Lawyers file lawsuits "without merit" all the time. Like the one who lied in court and got a lady rich who spilled coffee on her own lap.

  3. my favorite thing to do for all of my ring plus lines since this news broke has been changing the credit card to a prepaid one with no money on it and then running up the bill by downloading a bunch of stuff and going over the included data by hundreds of dollars and then wait until ring plus realizes and stops the service and says to put a valid credit card down but i don't have to bc they are going out of business! haha

    1. it's hard not to call that fraud.

    2. That's the kind of thing you will laugh with glee about how you pulled it off... and then 7 weeks later, you get a credit card bill for $877.12.

    3. That's absolutely a civil tort, and potentially a criminal act. Don't try this at home, kids.

    4. torts...shmorts...its exactly what ring plus did to us...payback sucks doesnt it RP?

      Delete
    5. impossible bc comment said it was prepaid with a zero balance and those are disposable so that's a win for that person!

  4. What did they know & when did they know if? And yet they kept/keep taking "members" money.

  5. Does anybody know of a good archive of the Ring+ plans?
    Google led me to a ring+ forum page that linked off to them (at least 2014 thru June 2016?), but I suspect those pages will be going away soon.

    I was happily surprised that my "Endless Summer" lasted about ten months, and then "Mad ???" a few more months. I think my $25 credit will last me thru about four months of Ting service.

    1. It might take a little time. but this website has done a great job of listing the RP plans as they get announced.

  6. I switched 2 phones and made about $25 bucks sure don't know why everyone is complaining! If you signed up--you knew what could happen. If you bought a member+ then you're just plain stupid, everyone told you. RIP R+

  7. The cost (legal fees) benefit (unlikely to win) is not there. Consumers are the ones screwed. Karl Seelig just ripped off a bunch of money.

  8. Beware of CellNuvo as an alternative to RingPlus.

    They seem to have gone out of business, or act like it. Their phone switchboard has no answers, and no one is manning the online chat on their web site.

    Beware!

    1. Same for MINTSIM, no replies to my chat, message and no answer on phone.

      Delete
    2. Hope CellNuvo survives, closest to R+ with user-feedback on ad's based model & cheap. I got a prompt reply from their CS about their switching promo

      Delete
    3. Just last week I used their contact form, got a reply within 24 hours. https://cellnuvo.com/contact_nuvo.php

      Delete
    4. several days ago, Cellnuvo shut off its phone support, live text chat, and contact form.

      Beware!!!!

      Delete
    5. "BEWARE" of what! R+ customers have a tendency to call about the most insignificant thing. It would seem that most of them have the common sense of a gnat.

    6. When a company decides to shut off their telephone support, disable their submission form, and turn off their live text chat, only a fool would give them business.

  9. I think the best deal for low users is SpeedTalk mobile for just$5 a month per line includes 250 min/sms/mb

  10. Just a couple more days to abuse the data on your 10 phones before you will actually have to come up with something more than an insignificant topup.

    1. Nope. Ting is giving everyone $35 credit per account plus any top-up balance over that so that we can continue binging, cheating, stealing and hogging for a while longer ;-)

    2. ...........Like a bunch of sheep following each other to the worst possible deal. You must all live in the same basement?

    1. Thanks for reporting on Twigby. Was wondering how they were and they seem to have pricing to my liking. Will keep in mind after the migration from RP & my $35 credit is used up at Ting.
