Find your next perfect phone

With all the different smartphones available today, it can be hard to narrow it down to just one.
If you’ve already decided to pass on iOS and Windows Phone in favour of the Android platform, finding that perfect phone is closer than you think. Whether you’re always on the go, love taking pictures or can’t put down the latest mobile game, there’s an Android device out there with your name on it.
To make things easier, Google has launched a website to help you find the proper fit. Just provide some details about what you do on your phone and how often, and let Google work its magic to match you with some suitable options.
To get the most accurate results, make sure to complete as many sections as you can. When asked how often you use your phone for taking pictures, listening to music, web browsing, etc – try to give a good estimate as this question helps Google determine what battery size you’ll need.
While you can’t initially specify your budget and preferred screen size, you can do this from the results page. The drop-down filters let you sort by carrier, display size, price range and release date. (We recommend you choose “all carriers,” and search for the compatible GSM or CDMA model to use with Ting.)
Keep in mind that not all the suggested devices will work with Ting. If you’re looking to bring a device to our GSM network, here’s everything you need to know about getting your hands on a compatible model. If you’re looking to activate on CDMA, make sure to enter the phone’s MEID number in our compatibility checker to ensure it passes Sprint’s financial obligations before purchasing the device, whether new or used (more info).
Of course, all phones on sale in the Ting shop are ready for use on CDMA or GSM, so that’s always a great option if your preferred model is in stock.
