Ditch your home phone,
get you a Home Phone

thumb image

Ditch your landline phone and step up to a Home Phone Connect 2 between July 15 and July 31 to enter the Ting Home Phone Challenge. Get $25 off the Home Phone Connect 2 and, if after a month you’re not saving money as compared with your monthly traditional landline home phone bill, we’ll take the device back and completely refund your purchase.

The Home Phone Connect 2 acts just like any other device on your Ting account and shares your pool of voice minutes. If you, like us, find you use the landline less and less, chances are good it won’t even push you to the next Ting rate level for voice minutes.

If you’re totally over the idea of a dedicated home phone, consider Home Phone Connect 2 for parents who still dutifully pay that monthly landline bill. Plug in their traditional phone (unless, of course, it’s a rotary-dial) and they won’t even know the difference.

Just use the promo code homephonechallenge.ting.com. Buy a Home Phone Connect 2, hook it up and see the savings.

If you don’t save money after a month as compared with your most recent landline bill, we’ll take the Home Phone Connect 2 back and completely refund your purchase. Just scan or take a clear photo of your most recent landline home phone from for June or July, 2013 and upload it to our handy Home Phone Challenge form. When the Home Phone Connect 2 comes back, we’ll chastise it at length for letting us down. Worse: For letting you down.

Can I keep my home phone number?

Absolutely. When your Home Phone Connect 2 arrives, simply activate your Home Phone Connect 2 and “port” your landline phone number over to Ting in the activation process. Please note that bringing your landline number over to a mobile carrier like Ting can take up to seven days.

What do I need to do to get in on this sweet, sweet promo?

Click the homephonechallenge.ting.com link to buy a Home Phone Connect at $25 off before midnight on July 31. Use it for a month. Send us a copy of your previous month’s home phone bill using the Home Phone Challenge form. We’ll do the rest!

How will you check whether I’ve saved money?

If you don’t see the savings, just scan or snap a clear picture of your most recent home phone bill. Upload it to our Home Phone Challenge form. We’ll compare your previous month’s landline bill with your Home Phone Connect usage to see if you saved money as compared with your old landline phone.

How do I claim my $25 off the Home Phone Connect 2?

Just click through on the homephonechallenge.ting.com promo code link. Buy a Home Phone Connect 2 and you’ll see the Home Phone Connect 2 price is $25 lower. It’s like magic. Entirely logical and technologically feasible magic.

I don’t have a Ting account. Am I eligible?

Yes. Just sign up for a Ting account when purchasing the Home Phone Connect 2 and you’re in.

I already have a Ting account. Am I eligible?

Yes. Just activate a new Home Phone Connect 2 on your account.

I already have a Home Phone Connect 2. Am I eligible?

Sorry, no. If you already have an active Home Phone Connect 2, you’re not eligible unless you purchase and activate a new Home Phone Connect 2. I think Grandma was hinting around that she’d like one…

I have a MagicJack / a Skype In number / something that isn’t traditional copper wire telecommunications. Am I eligible?

Sorry, no. This promotion applies to current terrestrial landline users. It’s our way of trying to break you loose the copper chains that bind your landline phone.

If I don’t save on my home phone bill, how will I get my money back?

If after you receive your first full month Ting bill that includes your Home Phone Connect 2 usage you determine you’re not saving with Home Phone Connect 2 as compared with your old landline home phone, we’ll refund your purchase. fill out the Home Phone Challenge form to send us your previous month’s landline phone bill. We’ll take a look at the Home Phone Connect 2 usage in your Ting account and compare it with what you were spending on your traditional landline. If you didn’t save money with Ting, we’ll send you a prepaid shipping label so you can return the Home Phone Connect 2. Send the Home Phone Connect 2 back and as soon as we receive it, we’ll refund your purchase to the credit card you used.

How are these questions “frequently asked” given that you just launched the promotion today? You expect us to believe that you’ve been receiving questions about a promotion that hasn’t even gone live? I mean, seriously! Who asks questions about a promotion before you even launch it? You guys claim to be an honest phone company. This sounds like collusion to me.

Touché.
