LOS ANGELES, July 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- (RingPlus): No credit card needed, no contract, no sign up fees, no monthly fees, and no other hooks you can think of! Just a simple Truly Free cell plan is the idea.
On Wednesday, July 15, 2015, RingPlus will be the first wireless cellular carrier in the world to open such a Free Plan without any real obligation to the consumer including no need to enter their credit card information. The Truly Free Plan is exclusively available online at https://ringplus.net/ utilizing the Sprint* Nationwide Network and the Sprint Bring Your Own Device Program. It is actual cellular service which is free, and it does not rely on downloads of VoIP apps.
"The Truly Free Plan will be offered to everyone, they will not need a credit card to sign up, and there will be no hidden fees or gimmicks. The only thing you need is your own eligible cellphone and an email address," says Karl Seelig, Founder and CEO of RingPlus.
This new Truly Free Plan will be offered July 15, 2015 with 125 minutes, 40 texts, and 10MB of 4G LTE data per month. Sign up is easy with just an email address and an eligible Bring your Own Sprint Device phone. That's it! (Phone eligibility can be checked at https://ringplus.net/.)
The Truly Free Plan breaks through all traditional free offers and other telecom models which typically require a credit card on file, and hide the real costs from consumers with tricks such as activation costs and monthly line fees, etc.
As the old saying goes, "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is." So, how is it possible to offer free cell phone service with only a phone and an email address required? Easy. It's ad-supported. With RingPlus you hear sponsored messages and other media content such as news and music until the person you called answers the phone. The call is not delayed. The waiting time until the party called picks up (the standard ringback tone) is merely replaced with entertaining media content.
RingPlus currently offers another Free Plan with larger allotments of talk, text, and data (200 min, 50 text, and 10MB) which is also available at https://ringplus.net/. If the consumer chooses that free plan, they will need to signup with a credit card.
All RingPlus overages are charged at the lowest cost in the industry: 2 cents per text, minute, or MB. Higher usage plans are also offered at a lower cost than all other carriers by far at https://ringplus.net/.
