The price is right with Anissa S

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

Anissa S lives in Arizona and has been a Ting customer for almost a year, using a Nexus 5X as her daily driver.

Her Ting cell phone bill is significantly cheaper compared to what she was paying with one of the Big Four wireless providers. Anissa realized that by switching to a smaller carrier, she could keep the great nationwide network coverage she needed while receiving a much better overall experience.

“I was using Sprint for the last 13 years and while I liked the service coverage, I didn’t like their plan prices and they did not have great customer service. For my usage, Ting was about 75% cheaper than what I was paying with Sprint.”

Redditors share seven Ting hacks to help you save money on mobile

The Ting subreddit is a great place to discuss everything related to Ting service, smartphones and the US mobile industry in general.

We’re constantly seeing discussions that help redditors have a better experience with Ting, sharing ways to help minimize data, minutes and text usage. Smartphones offer so many features that it’s easy to miss out on useful apps and settings that can have a big impact on your monthly phone bill (if you’re with a pay-for-what-you-use provider like Ting).

While our Ting tips do a pretty good job of digging into the basics, redditors are on another level when it comes to overall smartphone knowledge. So, we decided to ask the community to share the #1 phone trick or hack they use to lower their monthly Ting bill.

We’ve listed our seven favorites below – take a look.

Ting customer spotlight: Josh P

The Ting subreddit is a space for ongoing conversations about Ting and the US mobile industry in general. From questions, suggestions, shout-outs, Ting hacks and much more, it’s a great place to get quality, honest information about Ting.

Recently, Josh was looking around for cheaper cell phone alternatives and stumbled upon Ting on reddit, realizing it would integrate well with his Google Voice + VoIP landline combo and save him $35 a month in the process. After making the switch, Josh took to the Ting subreddit to share his setup with other redditors and explain why Ting was the perfect fit.

We were intrigued by this “communication trifecta” Josh mentioned and reached out to see if he’d be up for a chat. Josh was glad to tell us more of his story, explaining how this phone system works, the reasons he likes Ting, how much he’s saving and more.

Why Ting mobile service is a great choice for gamers

Ting mobile for gamers

Ting mobile is perfect for gamers

Since launching over four years ago, Ting has been a great choice for gamers all across the United States.

There are several reasons why Ting has been a hit with the gaming community, but it all stems from our innovative pricing model that lets you pay for what you use each month. Whether you’re a PC or console gamer, one thing you both have in common is that you likely spend most of your time around a Wi-Fi connection. If you’re constantly using Wi-Fi, what’s the point of paying for a hefty mobile data plan?

With an average monthly bill of $23 per phone, Ting can help you save big time on your cell phone plan without having to give up a quality smartphone experience. You can even hack your phone plan and get a $16 monthly phone bill with Ting by using Google Hangouts and Google Voice.

Two nationwide network offerings means you can bring pretty much any phone to Ting mobile, from the latest iPhone X to the oldest Android phone collecting dust around your house. With intelligent tools that give you complete control over your Ting account and no-hold customer support (including live chat), we believe in a better way to do mobile.

Ting customer spotlight: Ryan M.

A few weeks ago on the Ting Facebook page, we shared one of our weekly discussion posts and received some great comments from our Facebook fans. One of our customers, Ryan, responded to the post and was randomly selected as a lucky winner of a $25 Ting service credit. (If you’d like the chance to win some credit and/or Ting swag every week, Like us on Facebook.)

After adding $25 to his account, we noticed Ryan had been a Ting customer for over two years and had racked up a ton of referral credit since making the switch. As a veteran user, we asked Ryan if he would be interested in chatting with us about his experience with Ting, to help those who may be apprehensive about leaving a well-known provider for a low-cost cell phone carrier like Ting.

Fortunately, he was happy to speak with us! Ryan was eager to share his story, from his initial reasons for leaving AT&T to his current thoughts about Ting mobile service and more.


#TEAMTING – Brad Reed

#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.

The Reed family live in Texas and have been Ting customers for over a year and a half. They’ve saved an average of $210 per month on their cell phone bill since making the switch to Ting.

“Our usage patterns are exactly the same as they were prior to our switch. If anything, we are less worried about using more data or minutes than we were before.”

Brad, his wife and two daughters each use a smartphone on Ting across both nationwide network offerings. Brad explained why Ting mobile was the right choice for his family:
