Launched in February 2012, Ting started its new wireless service providing an innovative contract-free service. The new idea from this provider is a “Pay for what you use” approach, using a different method to pricing than the major providers. It means that customers don’t need to pick a plan but just use what they need and Ting will charge them only for what their usage is at the end of the billing cycle.
Ting offers flexible monthly rates with a pricing in separate tiers for minutes, messages and data, which are adjusted month-to-month to match the actual usage. It is possible to add an unlimited number of phones on one Ting account, and each device contributes to the total of minutes, messages and megabytes.
Ting runs on the Sprint CDMA, 3G, 4G WiMAX, and 4G LTE nationwide network. It also offers free voice roaming on compatible CDMA networks (Verizon and Metro PCS). You can bring your own Sprint phone to Ting.
Ting also provides GSM (powered by T-Mobile) wireless service on a nationwide 3G, HSPA and LTE network. Features offered include 3-way calling, caller ID, hotspot, call forwarding and more. You can bring your own unlocked GSM phone to Ting.
For mobile options, there is the choice of buying a new or used device from Ting, or Bringing Your Own Device and activating it with Ting if it is an Android, iPhone or Windows Phone. Ting offers some of the latest Smartphones, such as the latest Windows Phone, Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One.
Another distinction from Ting compared to other wireless providers is that there are no:
Ting only collects and remits on the customers’ behalf the legally regulatory fees required.
Overall, Ting offers fair rates and good customer service/support. Ting may be a better option if you are looking to share multiple devices or customize exactly what you want with consumer friendly rates and no contracts.
