A Friendly reminder to all new users (especially to those who are undecided about which phones they plan to use):
-You must make an outbound call within 24 hours.
-For the 1st 7 days only, your free account must not have a 10 to 1 ratio of outgoing to incoming calls for 2 consecutive days. This rule is ignored if you make 17 outgoing calls within the 7 days. No need to worry if this sounds complicated. Just make 2-3 calls per day for the first 7 days. Need somebody to call?
-After the 1st 7 days, the minimum usage is 1 outgoing call per 3 weeks. To support RingPlus (listening to ads), try to use you phone more often than the minimum to help keep this service free. Thank you for the suggestions of who to call. Also thank you for the minimum usage thing...I didn't know exactly how much was required. Anyway I always make sure to do more than that.
I agree entirely about that last bit. Make plenty of calls. The more advertising you hear, the more likely it is that RingPlus will be able to continue providing this plan. When it says "Press 5 for more information", sometimes go ahead and press 5. I imagine they make more on the ad if you do. They will send you a text.
in case R+ guys are too busy right now to post I'll quote Karl@R+ from slickdeals: Many people have asked us if we can extend our offer. The answer is: We are sorry, but no. So we have done the next best thing. We will open an “After Hour-Plan” which is available till 10pm PST today opening in 15 minutes. It is not a free plan however you merely pay the monthly cost to us witch is $6 and you will receive 300 Minutes, 50 SMS and 10 MB Overages, 2cent per MB Minute and Text. Hope that helps! RingPlus
Does anyone know how to remove/update a registered name from a new phone#?
I got assigned a phone number when I got the free Ring+ account last week, and when I call someones with caller ID, someone else's name shows up. I believe it belongs to the prior owner of the phone#. Google it but cannot find answer to remove the outdated caller ID name.
Edit: After using Ring+ for a few days, I am fairly pleased so far: 1.newbies can found most questions answered in discourse.ringplus.net. 2. If you cannot find answer from 1, Rignplus' customer service is quite responsive, simply email a question to firstname.lastname@example.org and a ticket is opened. I got an answer back within 1 hour. 3. there is a 313 phone# to call but I was not patient enough to wait to speak to a live person. Maybe best to send email.
keep checking in, there was a new offer today $6 300 Minutes, 50 Global SMS, and 10MB 3G/LTE but not sure if it's live still. I'm so stoked, got my $19 miracast dongle on the way and my Sprint R+ Galaxy S3 just got updated with Kitkat 4.4! Wasn't expecting that. Now I gotta say it's better then the Nexus 5 since I got wireless charging too.
New plan should get a new thread; 100 x 30 x 10, different rules (doesn't affect those "grandfathered" w/the 2013 Free Plan), option to keep the plan with "insurance", and a new $1.99 "Kate" plan (50 minutes & 10 SMS)...
Guys! www.freedompop.com/byod tops this by far! I got a decent Samsung Galaxy S II for under $80, and activated on this URL and I am good to go! Virtually free mobile service, with monthly limits as follows:
When I read about Freedompop last time it didn't have BYOD, just expensive phones of their own. Got a link to a thread about Freedompop's free BYOD? I've got lots of questions that I'm sure have already been answered.

Rule 2: You must make a successful outbound call one time at least once per week and 30 successful outbound calls per month.
The old free plan was only 1 call every 2 weeks... Anyone know if that rule was changed? yes they have already altered the new rule, stay tuned while they hash out the plan. Update 1/26/14 - Number of monthly calls dropped from 30 to 10, old rule 6 removed.
All rules and plan offerings may be modified until the 2014 Free Plan goes live on Tuesday, February 10th at 10AM.

kickerstarter said: Wow! 200MB is quite a lot of data. It is enough if you don't use it for streaming and use Wi-Fi at home/work. yes but it's limited to CA only. I'm on the original free BYOSD and they did bump us up except for the DATA which is what I want most. Can't complain for the price and they have been improving and expanding for six months now.
I think this topic should go back to Hot Deals, it's becoming a regular thing.

I want 200MB data. Thanks in advance. I sort of doubt it would be easy or possible. Last I heard they were hoping to bump up our free text but nothing about more data for the pioneers out there. I'll try to keep posted but I'm at a loss why it's Ringplus hasn't caught on, it sure has elsewhere. I'm already heavily moderated for some reason so I just sort of gave up on FW.
