RingPlus Offers 3 Months Free Service Deal

I’ve been writing a lot about Sprint MVNO RingPlus here recently as it has gained a lot of traction. And, in the wake of all of the new plans, free options and company changes RingPlus debuted a fantastic deal today for anyone who has been considering jumping to RingPlus but still has reservations.

Listed as a “while supplies last” deal, RingPlus is selling the HTC Desire 510 along with 3 months of free service for $99 plus tax and shipping. The included plan normally costs $15 per month and offers unlimited talk and text as well as 500 MB of LTE data monthly, with additional data incurring overages of $0.02 per MB. Still, not a bad deal.

What makes this outstanding to me, though, is that the promotion is pretty much risk free. Within the first three months, if a consumer decides they aren’t happy with the service, the device can be returned for a full refund. Sounds almost a little too good to be true to me, but talk about a pretty sweet way to test out this up-and-coming MVNO!

The HTC Desire 510 is a little bit dated and should ship with Android KitKat. When it was released, the device was entry-level, so don’t expect anything super exciting from the phone. However, HTC is a pretty good company and the phone should be able to handle most tasks. Once the 3 free months of service is up, customers can switch phones if they wish.

To take advantage of this deal, you’ll need to purchase an HTC 510 on this page (which also includes all the rules for the promotion, so be sure you read those) and pay tax and shipping. You’ll be prompted to set up a RingPlus account once it goes through and then the phone will be shipped, fully activated and loaded with three months of the $15 Desire plan (which was created specifically for this promotion and is not otherwise available). Once the three months is up, customers can choose to stay on the Desire plan for $15 plus tax, or switch to a different plan.

RingPlus has a variety of plans ranging from free to $50 depending on how many minutes and texts you need. The company is a Sprint company but does, I believe, have a roaming agreement with Verizon, which makes the coverage pretty sweet for the price. I haven’t personally tried it yet but RingPlus is definitely on its way up. This might be a good chance to test them out and see how it goes.

If you do decide to take the leap, be sure to let me know your experience!
