Buy or bring a new iPhone to Ting: plus, why we’re excited about eSIM

eSIM

The title of this post kind of gives it all away but if you’re eyeing iPhone XR, iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max and thinking, well I’d love to bring me one of those to Ting, we’ve got great news.

All three new iPhone models will be compatible with Ting and they’ll be available in the Ting Shop. We’ll even have them for pre-order on September 14 for iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max and on October 19 for XR.

If you haven’t heard the latest iPhone news, here’s what we’re excited about in the new models.

Rebooted phones combine retro designs with modern technology

Retro rebooted phones make great options for #tbt social media posts. Many reboots have retro styles and smartphone technology similar to what you’d get from the latest models. If you enjoy a retro look, check out these rebooted phones.

Brick phones get rebooted with a touchscreen

Brick phones were popular in the 1990s, but they fell out of fashion as people started to buy smaller flip phones. Now, a few brick phones from the past have gotten technological makeovers. The So Retro phone, for instance, has a touchscreen, fast processor, and SIM card.

The Higoo 2016 phone also combines a retro style with new technology. The rebooted option has an interesting aesthetic that you probably haven’t seen in years. It won’t appeal to everyone, but it’s an exciting option for people who appreciate the Flashback Friday style.

Our Moto G6 Play review

An exceptional phone at an affordable price

Motorola phones with impressive specs at a great price aren’t hard to come by these days. You’re spoiled for choice, really. So what sets the Moto G6 Play apart from the pack?

Never has a phone looked and felt so good for just $199. We’re serious. Today, you can own a phone that takes amazing photos in all kinds of light, powers through a day and night on a single charge and is built with intuitive skills that make using this toy (or tool, depending on how you look at it) a joy.

Moto G6 Play price: get more for less

At just $199 it seems almost unthinkable that Moto G6 Play is this affordable.

Pre-order it starting on June 28, 2018 in the Ting Shop.

Wireless charging technology: simple, safe and convenient

Our guide to wireless charging technology

One day, here at Ting HQ, we looked around and noticed a lot of us had wireless charging phones, but none of us were making use of wireless charging technology on a regular basis.

Truthfully, when we got those phones, we were pretty excited about the idea of tossing our phone on a wireless charging pad and forever ditching the cluttered world of cords and adaptors.

Why we love Motorola cell phones

Our guide to Motorola cell phones

It’s no secret that we talk a lot about Motorola cell phones here on the Ting blog. Over the years, we’ve been impressed time and time again at what they’re bringing to the table: smartphones that do it all at incredibly affordable price points.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane. Remember the first and second gen of Moto E4? These phones were rapidly closing the gap between what it meant to be a budget smartphone and a flagship. Fingerprint sensors, Google Assistant, long battery life and more, with a Moto you didn’t have to spend a lot to get all the latest features. Then there’s Moto X. We still get a little nostalgic when we think back to this one. Moto X was all about customization and personalization. Moto Maker let you attach different backs right onto your phone for a unique look that ranged from plastic to leather to bamboo. And then there was Moto G5 Plus. If you’re a frequent reader of the Ting blog, you know how much we love this phone. Smooth performance, solid specs and at $299, we’d never seen anything like it before.

While we find ourselves pining for the Moto X of old, we’ve got to admit, Motorola cell phones have continued to rise to the occasion, exceeding our expectations for what a smartphone should be and how you didn’t have to spend up for a superior smartphone experience.
