Thanks RingPlus for a great value

So my free phone service with RingPlus is over I got migrated to Ting on 2/21 as they said it would happen.  Price on Ting is OK if you don't use your phone much, but it is great to have mobile data, so I am looking for a better deal.  Sprint currently has 5 lines for $90/month unlimited with roaming included, tempting.  MintSim a limited promo for $11.67 for 3 months, TextNow has a R+ porting instructions and an unlimited 2G starting at $13.99.  Cellphone service has so  many options it is confusing, but the winner for low usage is still FreedomPoP for $0/month you can get 200 Min of VoIP over your WiFi and data plan, which also has an additional 200 Meg, but with friends you can make that more.  Data speeds a pretty good and coverage is a bit lacking for voice as it runs over the data, so  you need to use a rather clunky FreedomPOP Messanger App to call.  FreedomPOP often has great deals on WiFi data as well.  And then there is a month of unlimited on AT&T network for $6.99, limit 3 on H2O SIM.  I ordered this, will let yon know once I use it, too many options right now, will stick with Ting for the free $35 intro they gave me for coming from RingPlus. I am surprised by how affordable a 4GB RAM 64 GB BLU Life ONE X2 is $179.99

I live in a desert that has had a drought for the past 4 years, now it is pouring.  I am not used this much rain anymore.  I decided to go without a car last year and this isn't fitting into my plan to bicycle to work.

More free phone service

FP, free SIM cards. looks like they're going to feed off the dead Ring+ carcass.

To keep your Ringplus phone from becoming instantly obsolete without having to pay recurring charges or any calling requirements of any kind,

READ AND FOLLOW these steps. Do not skip, do not execute out of order, do not hesitate.
NOTE: This will NOT save your Ringplus number OR your top off there. The following instructions just keep your phone alive and provides continui g service without cost as you exit the sinking ship.

1. First swap out your the IMEI of your R+ phone with a dummy, or just CANCEL the R+ line altogether
2. Create VCC with BoA, Citi,, Kroger Visa/Mastercard money card, whatever

Then the usual procedure applies...
1. Register with FP, using NEW email address and VCC from BoA, Citi,, Kroger Visa/Mastercard money card, whatever
2. Downgrade both PLAN and SERVICES
3. Add $5 to top off and turn auto top off OFF to avoid being charged top off or being cancelled for overages in the future

Optional: Add "Freedompop Friends" to bring your free minutes and data allocation up to something useful.

Feel free to continue to use your phone, knowing that if you exceed your allocation your phone service will simply stop working until you add money or next month's allocation kicks in.
