    Ring.To Transitioning to Paid Service

    Just got the tweet...Ring.To is transitioning to a paid service. I know many of us use this serice to transition between MVNO's and/or forwarding.

    Looks like $1.50/mo billed annually ($18).


    Plan Options

    RingTo is priced at just $1.50 per month ($18 billed annually) and includes:

    Call forwarding
    SMS & MMS
    Voicemail
    iOS/Android calling
    Dynamic outbound number selection
    Call blocking
    Free number porting


    Not sure if this is per number or per account.

    Anywho...this is the link to their twitter feed. You can find the announcement in there.

    https://twitter.com/RingToApp

    IMO...seems pretty reasonable if I can have multiple lines for $18/yr.

    i canceled my landline and ported to RingTo.
    then forwarded the # to a Freedompop phone.

    i never use my landline anymore.
    i only keep it because i dont want to call up ALL my credit cards and doctors to change to my cell phone.
    and because RingTo and FreedomPop are free.

    i cant port to Google voice because it doesnt accept Landline #s or RingTo #s.

    suggestions to where to move my landline # to?
    Thx
    leave it on ring to.
    Forward to whatever service you want. Check out Truphone, free inbound calls 0 cost per month, $0.09 units for outbound if you need to, uses AT&T or tmobile whichever is stronger in your location. $30 investment up front, $15 is airtime. Could last you for years

    Sounds reasonable as long as one account can have multiple lines.

    I was wondering how long it was going to free for. I have a couple lines on it, still cheaper than other number parking services and cheaper than porting a number into Google Voice, at least the 1st year. Wish they had fax service, I still get occasional clients that want invoices faxed instead of emailed or mailed.

    I use my Obi with my GV account, but this puzzles me:

    Obihai users

    Your existing service with RingTo will conclude in the coming months. We are actively working with partners to help find a new home for your phone number where you can continue to enjoy using your Obi at home or at work. Expect an announcement with more details mid-January.
    If you become a paid customer, why is this going away?

    their usage of ringto was only as a free service, and probably Obihai did not pony up the money that they are being asked to pay to become a partner

    I think this is a good thing. If I am a paying customer, the rug is less likely to be pull from under me. I think they will be around longer if they are making money.

    Does RingTo have any advantages over the (free) Google Voice?

    Ring.To has been around a while and has a real company behind them.

    All paying does is guaranty future price increases.

    Now I've got 2 months to decide what to do with my old home number. Moved it to Ring.To because MagicJack was getting to costly for the limited usage it was getting. Not sure it's worth $18/yr either.

    Those T Mobile golden rewards Sims are starting to look a bit more attractive. Service like true phone as well
