Ringplus to offer mobile plan on July 15


Ringplus is offering its Truly Free Plan on July 15, 2015. With this plan, no credit card is needed, there is no contract, and there are no sign-up fees or monthly fees.

Ringplus’ currently available plans can be divided into two tiers: free and paid. The Truly Free plan includes 125 cellular minutes, 40 SMS messages and 10MB of 4G LTE data. For more details, check out the table below, courtesy of Ringplus’ plans page on its site:

As you can see, while the plan certainly is free (along with two others), data and SMS take big hits in being limited only to 10MB and 40 messages respectively. You could probably get away with just SMS on the Pepper Plan, which is higher than the highest paid option outside of the unlimited SMS plans. However, if you need more than 10MB of LTE, you must go one of the paid routes. Speaking of the Pepper Plan, the $5 auto top up simply means that it requires that you have a positive, account balance at all times. If this balance is $0.00 or lower, it automatically will  be “topped up” a minimum of $5.

Nevertheless, the company states that it will become the first wireless carrier in the world to offer a plan like Truly Free. This will be available only at RingPlus Mobile. It will use Sprint‘s network and Bring Your Own Device Programs. Lastly, the cellular service itself, at least for the Truly Free Plan, is free, and it does not require VoIP apps.
