For those considering RingPlus, it now appears that Apple's new iPhone SE (SIM-Free) version is the best bet. It will work with AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and even Sprint contrary to Apple documentation.
The gotchas with using it with Sprint/RingPlus service are (1) you must obtain SIMOLW416C on your own since Apple doesn't have the correct SIM (in addition to RingPlus store link above, Ting sells the same one for less) and (2) your Sprint service will be missing Band 41. However, testing shows that, even without Band 41, folks are getting: Download 20.96M Upload 5.89M ping 44ms.
If you're new to all of this, the beauty of RingPlus is you also get a compatible SIP trunk that can be used to make and receive calls using PBX in a Flash or Incredible PBX. And the trunk connects directly to Sprint's super fast Internet backbone. Nerd Vittles tutorial here. See also this thread.
