Describe your home screen in a haiku for a chance to win!

Moto G5 Plus
Enter to win one of four $100 Ting credits or a Moto G5 Plus.

When it comes to home screens, no two are alike. This month at Ting, show us the home screen of your phone and tell us a bit about what makes it yours. You’ll have a chance to win Ting credit and even a Moto G5 Plus. Oh, and to make things interesting, we want you to describe your home screen in a Haiku.

Maybe you love stories and your home screen is set up for listening to podcasts and reading e-books. Maybe you’re hyper-organized and you have your apps color coded and alphabetized. Maybe you’re obsessed with social media and documenting your daily lunchtime panini. Maybe you’re a news junkie and you’ve got Google Alerts on every hot story, a finger on the world’s pulse.

Whatever it is, we want to get to know you.

Smart budgeting with the Kennedy family


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

McKenzie Kennedy is a stay-at-home mom living in Nevada. McKenzie and her husband have saved at least $135 each month on their phone bill after switching to Ting.

“I am a true stay-at-home mom and part of that is saving money so I can continue to stay home with them. One step was finding ways we could save money in our budget. The $180 we were paying (per month) for the two of us was, in my mind, outrageous. My husband came across Ting and we realized how much it would save us so we decided to give it a try. Our bills are $42 most months and the most we’ve ever paid in a month was $52.06.”

Personal mobile for Anne


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

Anne lives in Maryland and has been a Ting customer for over a year. She currently saves about $20 per month as compared with her previous plan. Anne was in the market for mobile because she was transitioning off her parents’ family plan.

“After years of not even coming close to using up the texts, data and minutes I had on my parents’ plan, I really liked the idea of paying for what you use. I definitely wanted to try Ting.”

Stress-free service for Anne-Elizabeth


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

Anne-Elizabeth lives in Brooklyn and has been a Ting customer since 2016. She currently saves $30 a month on her phone bill with Ting. Anne-Elizabeth wanted to switch providers after she purchased a new smartphone for work, an iPhone 5c.

“I was worried about staying within the limits of my plan or constantly changing the plan to cover my usage. I didn’t want to have to buy more minutes or data than I actually needed.”

Verizon Plans – More for More

Verizon created a lot of excitement a few days ago when they announced that they were bringing back unlimited data plans. Out of curiosity (and maybe some fear), I ran the numbers on what Ting customers paid in January compared to each of the new Verizon plans:

With one device – 97.6% of our customers paid less than the $80 they would pay on Verizon
With two devices – 99.6% paid less than the $140 they would pay on Verizon
With three devices – 99.3% paid less than the $160 they would pay on Verizon
With four devices – 99.1% paid less than the $180 they would pay on Verizon

I think unlimited data – both never having to be mindful (getting on Wi-Fi, caching music and maps) and potentially doing even more on the go – can be a wonderful luxury.

On a personal note, I also think we should all have some affordable luxuries. I have been buying this silly little baguette with smoked salmon, cucumber and dill at a nearby coffee shop for like $15 on Saturday mornings after I work out. It feels wrong every time. But it is so good.

I just think it is helpful to point out that our 150,000 budget-conscious Ting families (and the millions of budget-conscious potential Ting families they represent) averaging $23 per device a month can get more for more with Verizon and others, but they still cannot get more for less.
