RingPlus adds new $33 Jump plan, Sprint allows iPhone 4 and 4S on RingPlus’ BYOD
New RingPlus Jump plan includes unlimited talk, unlimited international and domestic texting and 2GB of data for $33 (plus tax) per month. As its name suggests, customers will be able to jump to or start a new monthly cycle as soon as they use up their data allotment by simply paying $33 in advance. The Jump plan will be containing ads as free RingPlus plans do but rules for free plans won’t be applying to the new $33 plan. Customers will also be able to access all RingPlus In-Call Apps and international dialing. Customers can also choose to add additional data for 2 cents per MB, plus tax.
RingPlus has also announced that Sprint has allowed activation of iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S on its BYOD program. This will probably mean that other Sprint MVNOs will be able to do so as well soon. However, Ting, also Sprint’s MVNO, has been activating iPhone 4 and 4S with their prepaid service since November last year while yesterday, they have started activating iPhone 5 as well. In addition, they are expecting to activate the latest iPhones, 5S and 5C, in September 2014 since that would be a year since Sprint has launched them.
