We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite answers from Facebook and Twitter. Share these tech resources with the student in your life so they can conquer their classes this fall.

A few changes to your mobile habits can go a long way

It’s easy to be a conscious phone user

Shayne and her family have been Ting customers since 2013. They currently save $75 a month on their bill since switching to Ting and making slight changes to their mobile habits.

“Ting allows us the flexibility to use what we need without worrying about a huge bill. We are also able to save money by buying phones out of pocket and selecting the devices we need, rather than owning the newest smartphone.”

Does Ting do long distance calling?

That’s a question we get a lot. The answer is yes, yes we do.

Ting minutes are nationwide with no long distance fees in the US. Our international long distance rates have always been quite reasonable too.

To call abroad, just allow international long distance calls on your account. This feature is controlled per phone.

Global texts have always been free of surcharge on Ting because we don’t believe in charging people for things that don’t cost us anything.

Building a one-of-a-kind phone plan for your family

Ting’s phone plans are custom fit for families

Jodi lives with her family in Virginia. They currently save $50 a month on two phones with Ting.

Jodi loves Ting’s flexible, pay for what you use service. On Ting, she can add a third line to her family’s account whenever they need it.

“Our family is starting to grow up. We have four boys who are starting to become more independent. Ting makes sense because we pay for a third phone when we need it, and not when we don’t. Camp this month? Pay the $6 line fee and then shut it back off when we don’t need it anymore.”
