Check your AT&T phone, get a free coffee

If you’ve got an active AT&T phone and two minutes to spare, you can get a $5 coffee card just by seeing if you can bring your phone to Ting.
Since we added a GSM network to the Ting offering, over 80% of phones made in the last couple of years will work on Ting. That includes a majority of AT&T phones. Hence this little promotion.
Now, if we’ve been at all effective in our marketing efforts, you already know that people can save a lot of money by switching to Ting for mobile phone service. Also, you know that while we’re great for people with just one phone, the more devices you have active on an account, the less you pay per device on average. If not, well, you do now.
We’re sweetening the pot with this coffee gift card give-away. Not only does a $5 gift card buy a whole lot of pumpkin spice lattes (well, one pumpkin spice latte) but if you can bring the phone you already own then the choice becomes even easier to make.
Here’s how it works
This promotion starts at midnight ET on October 20 and runs until 11:59pm ET on October 22.
- Grab your active AT&T phone, open up the phone dialer and dial *#06# to find your phone’s unique serial number (IMEI). More info on finding your IMEI is available here.
- On your computer, go to the Ting coffee promo page and fill out the form.
- We’ll tell you whether or not your AT&T phone would work on Ting, if you chose to bring it over.
- We’ll send your $5 coffee card to the email address you provided on or before the end of day Monday, October 26.
Just to be clear, going through this phone checking process doesn’t change anything at all on your phone. There’s zero obligation and we’re not about to start sending you a bunch of junk email or start calling you at all hours. That’s not how we operate.
