Switching to Ting is smart, quick and simple. You don't have to buy a new phone, since you can bring your device to Ting. You can keep your old number. All you need to do is order a Ting SIM card and once you have that, you can switch your phone service in as little as 2-3 minutes.
Does Ting have network coverage in my area?
Ting is powered by T-Mobile & Sprint, meaning you get the same nationwide 4G LTE coverage as you would if you signed up to T-Mobile & Sprint directly.
Can I keep my phone number when I switch to Ting?
Yes! It's easy to port your existing phone number to Ting during the activation process.
Can I bring my phone to Ting?
Yes! Most unlocked smartphones that have a SIM card slot will work with Ting. If your phone is locked to a carrier you will need to contact your existing carrier to get it unlocked.
Every month Ting charged us $10 for data usage although we never downloaded data, ever. We use our landline almost exclusively, our cell phones are used for very short messages between the two of us, maybe 10 min. a month between the two of us. We were charged for 122 min last billing cycle. Sometimes, once or maybe twice a month I might make a phone call while sitting in the room where my phone is connected to my wifi (according to the phone symbol) Ting claimed data charge was because somehow, with perfect timing, wifi was interrupted and the call was switched to Ting service which cost us $10! Balony! Look further for a cell service provider. Ting stinks.
Price, customer service, value
Great customer service and amazing value. Ting is also less than half the price!
Give Ting a try, you might like it. It's good for those that don't use their phones much. It runs on T-Mobile and is reasonably low-cost so long as you aren't a heavy user.
