5 Reasons You Should Try Ting
Ting is a no-contract wireless service provider that runs on Sprint's network. Not only is it cheap, but you are able to bring your own device over if it is compatible. Here are 5 reasons why you should try Ting: 1. You pay for only what you use This is the most beautiful part, in my opinion. If only other phone companies used this method as the standard. AT&T and others have pay-on-go services, but there are limitations to the devices you can use. 2. It's family-friendly You pay $6 per device on the plan and share the minutes, data, and texting. It's convenient and easy to use and you can save even more money by bringing your own devices 3. You can easily swap phones from another carrier Let's say you've got an AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3 or a Verizon iPhone 5. So much for moving to Ting, right? That S3 runs on GSM networks, and Ting is a Sprint-powered CDMA network. Likewise, Verizon's phones are typically locked to its own CDMA towers. Not a problem. Ting recently introduced a swap program that lets you make the move at virtually no cost. What you do is buy the same model phone (except Sprint-compatible) from Glyde, then sell your current handset through Glyde. If you're not able to sell it for the same price as you bought the replacement, Ting will credit you the difference. [1] 4. It's hacker-friendly Although Ting supports most Spring compatible devices, you are also able to bring any other device..."quietly". This means you could bring in a Boost mobile phone if you knew how to do it. 5. You can give back Referrals! Your first referral gives you $100 credit that you can use to pay your bills or credit to a phone. After that, you will recieve $50 per friend. You can even donate your referral credit to charity if you don't want to use it. I may be a little biased because I made the decision to switch. The only bad thing about Ting is coverage. It runs on Sprint's network, which isn't the best. Luckily, coverage is great where I am currently, so it shouldn't be an issue for me unless I travel to an area where there is terrible service. Also, my android updates will be delayed, because Sprint releases their updates to Ting later than their customers. However, for the time being, I am fine with making this switch until I decide later on what to do with my phone.
