If you’re searching for an answer as to whether the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus will work on Ting, we’re pleased to be able to say that the answer is a resounding yes.
That was pretty resounding.
An iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus that’s purchased outright from Apple directly, that’s not purchased under contract or with a carrier device subsidy (Simple Choice Plan, Easy Pay, Next, whatever name they come up with next) will work.
Both the T-Mobile and SIM-free version of the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus will work on Ting on a GSM network with a Ting GSM SIM.
We’ve also confirmed that the T-Mobile (and SIM-free) version of the iPhone 6s or 6s Plus has full compatibility with the CDMA (Sprint) network. A Nano C6 CDMA SIM card is all that’s required to get it up and running. While there is a Sprint version available, Apple requires you to login to a Sprint account in order to purchase the device. It’s identical to the T-Mobile (and SIM-free) model, so there’s nothing you’ll miss out on by picking up either of those versions instead.
Until we have more information on how Apple is implementing its new monthly installment payment plan, to get a Ting-ready iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, you’ll want to buy the iPhone outright. We link there from our own Ting shop listings for the iPhone 6s.
Buy online or from the Apple Store
If you’re reading this early enough, you could venture into the outernet and queue up outside the physical Apple Store on September 25 in the hopes of getting a new iPhone 6s or 6s Plus to activate on Ting. Going the physical route—if the line is long enough and the news cycle slow enough—you also get the chance of making the evening news.
