Ting’s totally inoffensive, non-specific, non-denominational, super inclusive wintertime / holiday themed sales event.

Nexus-5After people picked our virtual shelves bare on Black Friday, we had a meeting. The consensus we reached: People really seem to like great deals on great phones. Duly noted. Let’s do some more of those.

You’ll recognize many of these phones from our Black Friday sale. We weren’t holding back. Quite the opposite. We redoubled our efforts and got a bunch more phones to offer up.

The Ting totally inoffensive, non-specific, non-denominational, super inclusive wintertime / holiday themed sales event starts on Wednesday, December 9 at 12pm ET (noon) and runs until the end of day on December 14 (11:59pm ET).

These phones are perfect for stuffing into oversized novelty socks. Wrapping in colorful paper and putting under a tree that mere weeks ago was minding its own business in a tree farm somewhere. Placing near a Menorah to be opened on one of twelve nights of gift giving (pretty sure that’s how it works). Or whatever your holiday customs, religious observances or traditions may be. This is the totally inoffensive, non-specific, non-denominational, inclusive wintertime / holiday themed sales event, after all.

Bought a GSM SIM card on Black Friday? This update is for you

The Ting GSM activation credits we promised in our Black Friday promotions are coming soon. Just not as soon as we’d like.

During Black Friday, we offered up some great deals on some great phones. We also offered a $50 credit to new customers purchasing a GSM SIM card during the promotion period which started on Black Friday, November 27 and that ended on November 30 at 11:59pm ET). The deal was, activate before December 7, 2015 and we’d apply the $50 credits starting today.

Unfortunately, we’ve hit a bit of a snag. The USPS is a bit slower than usual getting SIM cards out to people. So, to ensure no one misses out because of factors outside of their (or our) control, we’re extending the activation period and pushing the credit issue date a bit, to December 16, 2015, to accommodate.

Ting Unboxing and a giveaway: Moto X Pure Edition

The Moto X Pure Edition is a frontrunner in the new trend of high-end low-cost smartphones. A couple hundred dollars less than the latest Galaxy S6, iPhone 6s and LG G4, it still keeps up with the best. In fact, you’ll find plenty of people who say it is the best.

A crisp 5.7-inch QHD display, 21 megapixel rear camera, 3 GB of RAM and 1.8 GHz hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor makes the Pure flagship material. No matter what you throw at the Moto X Pure, you’ll get smooth performance and a top-notch experience in return. With great hardware and one-of-a-kind customization through Motorola’s unique Moto Maker, it’s truly is a stand-out smartphone.

There are no real compromises to be found either. Removable storage via microSD, NFC support (think Android Pay), universal carrier support (including both of Ting’s nationwide network offerings) and a capable 3000 mAH battery are useful additions to an already awesome phone.

Currently running Android 5.0 Lollipop with an upcoming update to 6.0 Marshmallow, you get access to the cleanest Android experience yet (and future versions, too).

Like to get your hands on one? Grab a Moto X Pure on the Moto Store through our Ting shop listing.

We’re also randomly selecting a commenter on Facebook to win a brand new 16 GB Moto X Pure! Contest details are listed directly below.

Congrats to our lucky winner, Jeremy B.

Alternate headline: There has never been a worse time to buy a Ting phone.

No, this isn’t a disgruntled soon-to-be ex-Ting employee looking to take down the organization from within. This Ting employee is actually quite gruntled, thank you very much.

Don’t you hate it, though, when you buy something and then, a few days later, that something is on sale? Us too. We’re trying to help you avoid that particular annoyance.

Black Friday is just around the corner. We’re breaking from the tech tradition a bit and doing Black Friday actually on Black Friday. Vanguard. We know. Starting at about 8am ET, the virtual doors open and the virtual flock of people can pick over our virtual shelves.

Here’s a hint at what we have in store.

Refer a friend to Ting, make bank, repeat.


Seems we haven’t talked much about the Ting Refer a Friend program recently here on the Ting blog. Let’s rectify that right now.

Item 1 – The Refer a Friend program is rad

Whereas Ting is a cell phone service that eschews plans, contracts and other BS
Whereas Ting customers presumably have at least a couple of friends
Whereas everyone likes a deal
Be it resolved that Ting customers should totally refer friends to Ting.

If you’re happy with Ting, you’re going to tell friends about us. (If for any reason you’re not happy with Ting, we hope you’ll tell us). The Ting Refer a Friend program adds a couple of benefits to word of mouth referrals. Your unique refer a friend URL link, found in your Ting dashboard, lets you tie your friend referrals back to your Ting account so you’ll both earn credit. To receive credit, your friend must use your unique referral link when coming to the site to activate their device (instead of going directly to

Here’s the brief: You offer friends $25 off a new phone from the Ting shop or a $25 Ting service credit if they bring a phone to Ting, buy a SIM card or a refurbished device.

In return, you get a $50 credit for the first successful referral and $25 for every successful referral thereafter. The only limit on how many friends you can refer is how many friends you have.

We’re going to go ahead and assume that pretty much everyone has least a couple of friends. If a friend in need is indeed a friend… indeed, perhaps your friends would benefit from a more sane approach to mobile phone service.

Item 2 – There is no Item 2

Seriously, that’s it. Now go refer a friend to Ting.
