The Petrushun family takes Ting on a road trip

#TEAMTING

Showcasing some of our favorite Ting customer stories, whether from an individual, a family, a tech-head or a retiree.

Erik Petrushun lives in New Jersey with his family. Erik and his wife are both high school teachers and, like most people, they want to save money where they can. That’s why they switched to Ting. Now they save about $60 a month on their phone bill.

“We are a family of four with both kids under the age of eight. Why pay $200 for a family plan if we only have the combined usage of one teenager? Ting makes sense on many glorious levels.”

Five reasons why the Galaxy S5 is still a great phone

Galaxy S5 is a great phone

The world of smartphones moves fast. It seems like only yesterday that Samsung was announcing the release of its latest, greatest model: The Samsung Galaxy S5.

These days, the Galaxy S5 is a few years old, and so it’s probably not going to get any oohs and aahs from your friends and coworkers anymore. However, Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is still a great phone. It has some powerful specs to its name and offers some clear advantages over its successors at a significantly lower price.

Here’s five reasons why the Galaxy S5 is still a great smartphone choice.


Great battery

One of the biggest selling points of the Galaxy S5 was and still is its battery. To begin with, it’s removable, which means you can bring an extra battery along for the ride and replace it in a snap. Switching batteries is not possible in either the Galaxy S6 and S7.

At 2800 mAh (milliamp hours), it’s also larger than the battery in the Galaxy S6, and according to some reviews, lasts longer as well.

Make a custom ringtone for Android and iPhone

Today, we’re going to show you how to make a custom ringtone using your favorite song. You can set up cool, custom sounds for all your incoming messages, alerts, phone calls and even your morning alarm. Maybe your default ring (yes, iPhone people, that one) just feels somewhat lackluster these days. Maybe you’re obsessed with The Final Countdown and you want to wake up to that glorious air guitar anthem every morning.

Whatever the reason, we’re going to make it easy to do.
