Switching from RingPlus to US Mobile

RingPlus

Are you a RingPlus customer? Don’t fear – we’ll take care of you! RingPlus announced in an email to its customers that they intend to shut down all accounts on February 11th, 5 PM Central Daylight Time, so it might be time to switch to a new carrier. US Mobile is a no contract, no credit check, no activation fee kind of carrier. In addition, we have real people standing by to support you 24/7 and there are no hidden fees.

Phone Compatibility

RingPlus is operating on Sprint’s network, which is a CDMA carrier, whereas US Mobile is a GSM carrier needing a SIM card to connect to the network. However, any phone that is unlocked for GSM will work on our network. Most of RingPlus’ phones that take LTE SIM cards will work at US Mobile.

If you’re uncertain if your phone will work, you can contact our customer service 24/7. We’re available on chat, email help@usmobile.com and phone +1 888 878 1488.  If you’re looking to get a new phone, you can buy affordable unlocked phones from our shop.

Find a Suitable Plan

US Mobile has 252 different plans to choose from, based on how much talk, text and data you need. 200+ plans might sound a bit overwhelming but start off by looking at your last bill to see how much you actually use. The biggest differentiator is which data plan you select. If you are connected to a WiFi most of the time and don’t use your cellular data to stream on the go, you can start off by choosing the 500 MB or 1 GB plan.

As a reference 500MB of Data translates to either:

  • 4 hours scrolling through Facebook and Instagram
  • 20 minutes streaming YouTube videos
  • Roughly 12 hours of jamming out t0 Spotify
  • 35 hours of web surfing
