thumb image

You stopped buying avocado toast for a week and now, you’re bankrolled to buy a new smartphone. Okay, despite what popular media says about your generation, you’re smart with your money. You’re looking for a phone that doesn’t tie you down to a provider or lock you into a financing contract. You do your due diligence, which is why you’ve stumbled across this post from Ting Mobile.

Ting doesn’t do contracts or commitments. Every month, use your phone however you need to. At the end of the month, settle up at a fair price for what you used. You can leave at any time, and for months where you’re traveling, on vacation or working abroad, just pay the $6 monthly line fee. That’s it.

Any unlocked phone can come to Ting, and we do device financing through Affirm. You’re never beholden for Ting for phone financing. We wouldn’t want to be held hostage, so we treat you with the same respect.

Making a smart spending choice: no contract phone deals

Chances are you’ve been through a few phones already. You’ve tried iPhone and Android and pledged allegiance to your preferred (and obviously superior) OS. You want a smartphone that can do it all: take professional-looking photos, stream with ease, support gaming and generally not keep you waiting as you snapstagram or instachat or whatever.

Here’s some of the best smartphone deals, tailored for those born in the 1980s and 1990s. You know: around the time culture peaked. Whether you’re Team Android or Team iPhone, we’ve got options for you, from bargain phones to higher-end deals. All of these phones are available in the Ting Shop, with financing from Affirm. When you order a phone from Ting, you’ll get a SIM card with your phone.

Check out our best smartphone deals below. These are some of the best unlocked, no contract phones around.


Moto E4 Plus $129 in the Ting Shop or starting at $11/mo with financing from Affirm

This phone is advanced for its price, and has sharp front and rear cameras that take great photos in all kinds of light… and the price is certainly right. The 5,000 mAh battery will get you through a couple of days and 2 GB of RAM means you won’t be kept waiting with basic smartphone tasks. Simple games are well within reach. For everything save perhaps the latest online 3D first-person shooter, the Moto E4 Plus has things well in hand.

Moto G7 Play $199.99 in the Ting Shop or starting at $14/mo with financing from Affirm

Moto G7 Play is 110 percent faster than Moto G6 Play. Like earlier iterations of Play, Moto G7 Play is all about enjoying the fun features of a phone and comes equipped with a fantastic camera and bright display. In the new version, you get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 octa-core processor to power your movies and photos fast. View them on a 5.7-inch Max Vision HD+ display. The phone is super thin and sleek, and feels great in your hand. The 13-megapixel camera uses phase detection autofocus to capture beautiful images in an instant. The 8-megapixel selfie cam also comes with a built-in flash so your photos come out flawless every time, even in low light. Moto G7 Play also comes with facial recognition for unlocking. A high-end feel at an affordable price.

iPhone 7 $449 in the Ting Shop or starting at $21/mo with financing from Affirm

We’ve said time and time again, even though Apple has released several models since iPhone 7, we still love this phone. iPhone 7 features a 12 MP camera with an ƒ/1.8 aperture for great low-light photos and 4K video. It has a 4.7-inch Retina HD display with wide color and 3D Touch and a home button equipped with Touch ID.

Samsung Galaxy S10+ $999 in the Ting Shop or starting at $47/mo with financing from Affirm

If you’re going to go big with your next smartphone, and you love Android and Samsung devices, you should check out the Galaxy S10+. On its face, it’s pricey, but with financing from Affirm, and a Ting bill as low as $16/mo (yes, really) the S10+ doesn’t feel that far out of reach. This phone is packed with high-end features. Five lenses fulfill every true photographer’s smartphone dreams with a Multi-Camera perspective to revolutionize the way you take photos. The 6.4-inch S10+ has a nearly frameless Cinematic Infinity Display and a Dynamic AMOLED screen that’s easy on the eyes. Just touch the glass to unlock with an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor.

iPhone Xs Max $999 in the Ting Shop or starting at $47/mo with financing from Affirm

If we’re going to talk about the Galaxy S10+, it only seems fair to have iPhone Xs on this list. It’s the same price point as the S10+, in a slightly smaller screen, but with awesome Apple features. The price also gets less intimidating with financing from Affirm and that Ting bill as low as $16/mo we mentioned above.

iPhone XS features a 5.8-inch Super Retina display with custom-built OLED panels for an HDR display that provides the industry’s best color accuracy, true blacks, and remarkable brightness. Advanced Face ID lets you securely unlock your iPhone, log in to apps, and pay with just a glance. The A12 Bionic chip with next-generation Neural Engine uses real-time machine learning to transform the way you experience photos, gaming, augmented reality, and more. A breakthrough 12MP dual-camera system takes your portraits to the next level with Portrait mode, Portrait Lighting, enhanced bokeh, and all-new Depth Control. Water resistance. And iOS 12—the most advanced mobile operating system—with powerful new tools that make iPhone more personal than ever.
