RingPlus has launched a new plan, the $1.99 "Kate" Plan. It includes 50 domestic minutes and 10 domestic or international SMS. Overage rates are 4¢/minute, 4¢/text, 4¢/MB and 9¢ per MMS picture messages.
In a lot of ways this is a better deal than RingPlus' famous, but no longer available. free plan. The free plan is supported by pre-call advertising and RingPlus wants you to make calls. So they have several rules to "encourage" making outbound calls. The rule that seems most likely to trip people up is one that says users service will be terminated if they don't make an outbound call at least once per week and 30 outbound calls per month.
If you don't want to worry about making calls just to keep from losing your account, the Kate plan, which isn't a promotional plan and isn't subject to the usage requirements, seems like the way to go.
The Kate Plan will be available starting 8 AM PT, Feb 10.
