How to enter

Your photo

We consider a flagship phone to be a phone that cost $400 or more at the time of launch.

RingPlus customers: A lifeline from Ting

UPDATE: Feb 10, 2017 – For the latest news on the RingPlus to Ting migration, an explanation, frequently asked questions and links to helpful resources, please check out the official RingPlus to Ting page

RingPlus customersYou may have heard the news that RingPlus, a phone company offering service on the Nationwide Sprint Network (an MVNO in industry parlance) is going away. We’re never happy to see companies close up shop. While people still have a fair bit of carrier choice, we believe that more is better when it comes to options beyond the “big four.”

That said, Ting is uniquely positioned to throw a lifeline to RingPlus refugees… and that’s just what we’re doing.

We’re offering $35 in Ting credit per account to RingPlus customers who bring their number over to Ting. Just go to the Ting RingPlus landing page and follow the simple steps to get your number moved over. This is our effort to make it as easy as possible to bring RingPlus numbers to Ting in advance of the deadline. It’s worth noting that your RingPlus phone and your SIM card (if applicable) are compatible with Ting, too, so you’re in good shape there.

RingPlus has told its customers they have until Friday, February 11 at 5pm CST to move (“port”) their number to another carrier before it disappears into the ether.

Number ports from RingPlus to Ting are running slowly right now because of volume. Things should speed up once RingPlus opens the gates. While a lot of MVNOs might consider this a “heavy lift,” we’ve done this kind of thing a few times before so rest assured, you’ll be in good hands.

We’re also in discussions with Sprint and RingPlus as we look for ways to make the transition simpler for RingPlus customers to come to Ting. That said, the rolling stone gathers no moss; if you’re a RingPlus customer and you’re feeling understandably nervous, it’s best to get your number port into the queue as soon as possible.


Switch to Ting

Ting turns five

Happy birthday to us, happy birthday to us. Etc.

Today, Ting is five years old. From our first public “hello world” blog post to today, it’s been quite a ride. Before we get too retrospective though, here’s the thing that probably hooked you to come here: The giveaways!

Five days of giveaways!

The daily promotions have ended! Thanks for your participation. Winners have been selected on Facebook and on the blog.

Watch us celebrate Ting’s fifth birthday from the recorded Facebook live stream below:

The Ting Black Friday mega sale is now over! See you next year.

Shopping for a new phone? Thinking about making the switch to Ting?

Black Friday weekend is the perfect time to get your hands on a great device at a discounted price. We’ve got a bunch of deals to share, including $75 off the iPhone 5S (refurbished) and $50 off the Moto G4.

We’ve stocked up in preparation but if sales go anything like previous years, you’d better act fast!

Ting Shop deals

Here’s what we’ve got on sale for Black Friday. Both GSM and CDMA models are available unless otherwise specified.


If you’re eyeing a device that isn’t part of our Black Friday sale, keep in mind that we recently launched device financing options for the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge and LG G5.

Ting Unboxing and a giveaway: Motorola Moto G4

When it comes to powerful smartphones that won’t clean out your wallet, the latest version of the Motorola Moto G is worth a look. Forget everything you think you know about the Moto G line. The G4 is a whole new ballgame.

The Moto G4 sports a 5.5 inch Full HD display and a capacious 3000 mAh battery that’ll last a full day. It has some capable cameras too, with 13 megapixels in the back and five megapixels up front.

If you’re not a fan of Android skins like Samsung’s TouchWiz and HTC’s Sense, the Moto line is perfect for you. The Moto G4 is essentially stock Android; the only preloaded app you’ll get from Motorola teaches you about useful gestures like launching the camera with a twist and turning on the flashlight with a karate chop. Our favorite feature is probably “Flip for do not disturb mode.” No longer will you need to remember to turn on silent mode, just flip your Moto G4 face down and you won’t hear a peep.

If you’re in the market for an affordable smartphone that punches above its weight class, the Motorola Moto G4 is a safe bet. Like to get your hands on one? The Moto G4 is available in the Ting Shop (GSM only). If you’d like to bring a Moto G4 to Ting’s CDMA network, you can do so in the Motorola Store through our Shop listing.

Ting is also giving away a Moto G4 on YouTube and a Moto G4 on Facebook. Entry details are listed below.

Congrats to the lucky winners on YouTube and Facebook.
