RingPlus Drops Lawsuit Against Sprint

A couple weeks ago, RingPlus, the Sprint freemium MVNO, suddenly went dark. New activations were suddenly no longer available, and RingPlus staff, which were normally very active on the forums, were noticeably absent. As it turned out, the company had fallen into some problems with Sprint and even filed a lawsuit. However, it looks like the suit has been dismissed with prejudice, which means that it can never be brought up again.

With the massive number of prepaid MVNOs and carrier options, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of it all and even harder to compare and decide which company is the right one for you. So, every once in a while we’re going to go through and do a Face-off of two popular companies, comparing plans and services to help you better decide.

Today, we’ll look at Boost Mobile and Ring Plus. Both of the plans run on Sprint’s network, and it’s said that the companies have the best valued plans on Sprint’s network, so I thought we’d put them head to head.

Ring Plus Debuts Mad Plans

ringplus-logo

Ring Plus, a Sprint MVNO, previously offered a good portion of its plans on a free tier. Essentially, the company would use something called Ring Plus Radio to play advertisements instead of ringing. This allows the company to offer free calling and free plans to customers. However, it seems that customers at Ring Plus were requesting a different type of service, so the company rolled out new plans that will operate only on Sprint’s network—without ads. Now, Ring Plus offers free plans, premium plans that use advertisements, and new plans which are ad-free. These new plans are called mad plans.

Let’s take a look:

RingPlusLogo

RingPlus, a Sprint MVNO, announced earlier this week that it is working on what might be one of the most useless and ridiculous services to ever be offered to prepaid customers: the ability to link your Twitter account to your voicemail. The details right now are pretty vague and I have to admit that there are a select few people for whom this service might actually be helpful, but for the majority of users I expect it’s going to either be a waste of time or a colossal embarrassment waiting to happen.
