Ting is a cheap alternative, but it's not good for teenagers.
Ting has been my family's provider for a few months now, and it's a great one too. Personally, I use just 100 minutes of talk time, over 3000 texts per month, and 1GB of data, so the 4800 package is perfect for me. The same goes for my husband and son. Calls have never dropped too. Each month, we're only paying $48 per month - way better than what we used to pay. If you're not a family who uses unlimited talk, text, and data, then you should check out Ting!
Used Ting for 2 years. Overall, I can say that Ting has handsdown the best customer service. We're also saving 1000s of dollars each year. You get what you pay for with Ting, and that's cause you're not paying for tricky advertising or stores.
Ting is great, but keep in mind that they GSM or CDMA, not both simultaneously. I docked it because it does not support wifi calling, so you'll need to rely on cell service for calling.
Ever since I've moved to Ting, I've found that I've been paying MORE for such limited service. Don't use unless you rarely use your phone!
