akula1488: and I got charged ZERO taxes and fees.
wireless-golden-spotted-ladybug-932452: I can't find the page where we can update voice and data options. Twigby said my line is shown active but when I make a phone call, which I use CSipSimple, I still hear ringplus ad. I don't have a real phone for this line yet, just an ESN.
akula1488: weird I ported a line to Twigby last night at 10 PM, finished at 5 AM today (7 hours, nice) and I got charged ZERO taxes and fees. I am from California, one the most tax laden state of them all.
I initiated my port one day earlier, and it completed at the same time. They probably processed a bunch of them at once. I'm pleasantly surprised that they got it done quickly.
112059: How does the referral code work? I know it's $20. Do you get my name and email/ Do I get yours? Just asking
ultimate-lavendar-houndstooth-gladiator-54876: Lots more interest in Twigby lately.
energetic-onyx-matte-door-259652: I haven't gotten my phone to activate yet though. I performed the reset using ##72786#, but handsfree activation does not complete.
Out of all the options out there I decided to sign up with Twigby, below you’ll find my quick review and information on how to port/sign up and get a free month of service plus a $20 credit.
Twigby is a Sprint MVNO therefore the phone AND the SIM you’re using right now with R+ will both work, there is no need to buy anything. There is no activation fee. They offer a free first month of service to all new customers plus a $20 referral bonus(more about that below).
They do charge taxes and fees on top of the plan cost, these fees should be around $1-2, my taxes and fees on a $48 plan were $1.50 I’m in New York city.
Voice service goes directly over the Sprint network in addition roaming on Verizon for voice and txt is included with the service. All plans include unlimited texting. Voicemail is included, can be turned on/off via website. Visual voice mail works with no issues. During the few days I've been with Twigby I have not experienced any issues with the voice service and I have already seen roaming kick in twice while traveling in the NY, NJ, PA, DC areas.
Data is a full uncapped Sprint 4G LTE after the data allotment is exhausted you get unlimited 2G speed at 64kbps. Hotspot functionality is included and can be turned on/off via website. Below are my speed test results.
The website/account interface/support
The website is well laid out and offers some interesting options.
-You can change your plan via the website anytime you want but the change will go into effect in the next billing cycle, if you want to change your plan for the current billing cycle chat support will be able to do that for you.
-You can change your phone device via the website at anytime by providing the MEID, free.
-You can request a phone number change via the site, free.
-You can toggle any wireless service; data, voice, messaging on or off via the website. You can also set your data speed to; 64, 128, 256, 512 or MAX.
-Overage protection can be turned on so you’ll never get charged more than you expected this option can be turned on and off via the website and the chat. When the overage protection is off you get bumped to the next tier of service every time you exhaust your allotment and you're charge for the difference between the allotments, for example if you are on a 200 minute $9 allotment and go over the 200 minutes you are bumped to the 500 minute $11 allotment, 300 minutes are added to your reserve (500-200 you already used under your original allotment) and you are charged $2 the price difference between the two allotments ($11-9).
Support happens via online chat, this is nothing like the R+ online chat. I've used the chat option 4-6 times and every time I did a representative was available to help me almost immediately was very helpful, courteous and knowledgable.
Simply follow the instruction from the link below and Twigby will handle everything for you, my port took between 2-6 hours. You do not have to provide any billing information during sign up. You’ll need to add a credit card to your account 48 hours after it has been activated.
After your account has been activated start a chat with Twigby tell them you were referred by a friend and give them your friends referral information.
PM me if you need referral information.

Nice job with the review. I think you covered everything pretty well. Thanks for mentioning about the credit card. It had not occurred to me that they didn't ask for credit card info during the signup process, not do I remember anything asking me to add one later. That could have been a problem.
wireless-golden-spotted-ladybug-932452: @DF_LIng I moved my ESN placeholder twigby intending to switch a working phone in later. I got an email that porting was done. However my line is still on ringplus dashboard and I can still use fluid call. Should I be worried that ringplus hasn't released my number?
