Five new phones that work on Ting

Most phones work on Ting, including the latest iPhone and Android smartphones. If you’ve had your eye on the Pixel 2 or the OnePlus 5, rest assured that they’re both compatible with Ting.

Here are some of the best new smartphones that, while not currently available in the Ting Shop, can be brought to Ting right now.
