How to unplug: it starts with your phone

Why unplug?

Between email, social media and texts, too often our phones can feel more like a source of stress than a utility meant to make our lives easier. If you find yourself compulsively checking your phone or you just want to cut back, you’ve come to the right place. Today, we’re going to talk about how to unplug from your phone.

It might seem odd that Ting (being a mobile service provider) would talk about unplugging and cell phone overuse here on the blog. It’s no secret that using your phone less means you’ll spend less on Ting. With our service, you pay for what you use. Every month, Ting customers use their phones however they want. Then at the end of the month, they pay a fair price for what they used.

A lot of Ting customers have found reducing their mobile habits helps them live in the moment. Many of them found that reducing their cell phone use wasn’t actually that much of a burden at all.

Every year, we see mobile data use spike in the summer. That’s because more people are away from Wi-Fi. Most of us are out and about, at the beach or on a road trip, enjoying the warm weather.
