#TEAMTING – Jennifer Williams

#TEAMTING is a series where we showcase some of our favorite Ting customer stories, whether from an individual, a family, a tech-head or a retiree.

Jennifer lives in Arkansas and joined Ting over two years ago. She and her family have been saving over $70 a month since taking total control of their cell phone bill.

“Ever since we made the switch to Ting, we use our phones more! Being able to easily tell what our usage is like throughout the month gives us the freedom to use our phones when we need to.”

Jennifer appreciates that with Ting, you don’t have to force yourself to use your phone in order to make your monthly plan worth it.

“Our family of five is always growing and changing. Having a carrier that allows for the flexibility of our growing family is so helpful. We can add devices as the kids get older, add simpler phones for our aging parents to use for emergencies, and always save during the months when we are too busy living our lives rather than living on our phones :)”

“Also, the customer service is phenominal – the person that answers the phone is the one that helps you!”

#TEAMTING – Glenn Musser

#TEAMTING is a series where we showcase some of our favorite Ting customer stories, whether from an individual, a family, a tech-head or a retiree.

Glenn has been a Ting customer for over a year and has two phones on his account: a Nexus 5 and LG Optimus F6. He’s been saving an average of $50 a month since making the switch and couldn’t be happier.

“I love the great value and wonderful customer service. It gives me connectivity at an affordable cost and we don’t get any unpleasant surprises from Ting”

Glenn appreciates that you don’t need an expensive monthly bill just to gain access to a smartphone.

“Before I found Ting we just used flip phones. Ting made it practical for us to enjoy the advantages of having a smartphone.”

“I am happy to recommend Ting mostly because I know my friends will have a good experience. Here is the wording from the back of my business card: Friends don’t let friends get trapped in mobile contracts. You deserve mobile that makes sense.”

#TEAMTING – Jeff Ward

#TEAMTING is a series where we showcase some of our favorite Ting customer stories, whether from an individual, a family, a tech-head or a retiree.

A few months ago, Jeff and his wife realized they were overpaying for cell phone service and decided to check out Ting.

“It really came down to price: We were paying $150 for two phones with our previous provider, and Ting brought our bill down to about $40 a month.”

While their previous plan included unlimited texts, unlimited voice calls and 3 GB of data, Jeff and his wife weren’t coming close to that much usage.

“Each month I use less than 100 texts, less than 500 minutes and less than 1 GB of data, so why pay for an unlimited plan when I’m not even using it?”

“I have Wi-Fi at work and home, and I don’t stream a lot when I’m on the go. The only time I use a lot of data is when I’m away at conferences, and the fact that Ting rates give me that option is great.”

#TEAMTING – Jessica Eure

#TEAMTING is a series where we showcase some of our favorite Ting customer stories, whether from an individual, a family, a tech-head or a retiree.

Jessica and her husband use two smartphones on Ting and are saving $75 a month since leaving their previous carrier.

We had the chance to chat with Jessica in Charlottesville, VA, who shared why her family has been with Ting since the very beginning.

“My husband Tim is a Linux developer and he’s always on top of the latest and greatest technology. He’s interested in companies that are responsible and up-front with everything, and Ting met those criteria.”

Jessica mentioned that their monthly bill is about half the price it used to be.

“When we first switched to Ting, the only thing we noticed was that our bill was ridiculously cheap. People wouldn’t believe us when I told them we were paying for two smartphones!”

#TEAMTING – Mike and Kate McMurtrey

#TEAMTING is a series where we showcase some of our favorite Ting customer stories, whether from an individual, a family, a tech-head or a retiree.

Mike and Kate live in Charlottesville, VA and recently said goodbye to their old mobile provider after hearing about Ting.

“I got my first smartphone with Ting,” said Kate. “With Verizon, I would have to pay at least $30 a month for a smartphone, no matter how much service I actually used.”

Since switching to Ting, Kate and Mike been saving around 45 bucks a month on their mobile bill.

“Technically, we didn’t have to pay anything the first month because of referrals,” explained Mike. “We heard about Ting from Kate’s parents who hooked us up with a $25 credit, and then I referred my brother so we got 50 bucks for that too!”

Ting Internet lights up its first gigabit fiber customer

I wish we could tell you that the first Ting gigabit fiber Internet customer in the first Ting Internet town has torrented every disk image of every Linux distro in existence while simultaneously downloading the sum total of human knowledge and achieving enlightenment.

I wish we could tell you that.

“My neighbors told me that they were getting fiber optic Internet and I’ve been having trouble with my provider,” said Brian Calhoun, one of the people behind the renowned Rockbridge Guitar Company in Charlottesville, VA, and the first person to get gigabit fiber Internet with Ting.

That neighbor, as it turns out, is Jamie, whom we’d spoken to not two weeks prior.

Small world. Or at least, a relatively small town.

#TEAMTING – Maureen Brondyke

#TEAMTING is a series where we showcase some of our favorite Ting customer stories, whether from an individual, a family, a tech-head or a retiree.

Maureen and her husband live in Charlottesville, Virginia and have an average bill of $50 a month for two iPhones with Ting.

We chatted with Maureen during Charlottesville’s annual Tom Tom Founders Festival last week and had the chance to ask why Ting is a good fit for her family.

“I use my iPhone constantly for work, I’m on Instagram, Twitter and I text often – basically use it the exact same way as before I switched to Ting, except our bill is $75 a month cheaper.”

#TEAMTING – Paige Hoogendoorn

#TEAMTING is a series where we showcase some of our favorite Ting customer stories, whether from an individual, a family, a tech-head or a retiree.

Paige goes to college in Delaware and uses a Samsung Galaxy S3 on Ting.

About a year ago, she discovered Ting and realized that she didn’t have to settle for a expensive monthly bill just to get access to a smartphone.

“Ting is easy, it won’t break your bank, it just makes sense. I think more people should switch to Ting, they just don’t know about it.”

By taking advantage of Wi-Fi and setting simple usage alerts, Paige was able to lower her phone bill by $35 a month!

“I changed my phone settings and I connect to Wi-Fi whenever I can.”

“Also, Ting customer service makes me feel like they’re my friend. I’d call one of them up just to have a chat lol.”

#TEAMTING – Daniel Miller

#TEAMTING is a series where we showcase some of our favorite Ting customer stories, whether from an individual, a family, a tech-head or a retiree.

Daniel studies in Albuquerque and joined Ting just over two years ago. He decided that he no longer had to put up with a contrived carrier and complicated plans.

“I pay for what I use without paying any unnecessary fees. I started using almost strictly Wi-Fi and found it to be a much better alternative to data. Saves money, battery, and when I’m out in public, I’m not constantly on my phone browsing the internet.”

Ever since he made the switch to Ting, he’s been saving an average of $80 a month on his cell phone bill.

“Thanks to referring a couple people, I haven’t had a phone bill in months. I usually spend about $17 a month, but when I was on vacation I had to use a little more data and usage than usual. My bill ended up being a little higher, but still much, much less than I would have with my old Sprint contract.”

“Personally I’m 100% happy with Ting, but I wish it was possible to bring a device over from another carrier besides Sprint.”

Good news, Daniel. Now you can!
