Cell phone financing with Ting is the smarter choice, and there’s a few reasons why. Our financing partner Affirm offers simple device payments over six, 18 and 24 months, with rates from 0-30% APR. Affirm is available in the Ting Shop for all the latest and greatest phones, with Apple financing options too.

You can get a great phone for an affordable monthly price with alternative financing options from Affirm. When you activate your phone on Ting, you only pay for what you use, and save even more.

That means your monthly payment for a brand new Samsung Galaxy S8+ could be as little as $27/mo, and your actual phone bill with Ting could be under $20 (or less, it’s totally up to you).

You don’t have to drop over $1,000 upfront to get an awesome phone, and you don’t have to pay into the hundreds for cell phone service.

How Ting cell phone financing works

Cell phone financing is different with Ting

With few exceptions, you should never accept your phone company’s cell phone financing terms.
