Getting out of a relationship with a mobile service provider can be awkward. You want to say you’ll remain friends but it’s never quite that simple. It’s not any one thing that brings the breakup about. Often it’s a combination of little things that culminate.
“You never call me unless you want something.”
“I never know where we stand.”
“I just don’t feel like you put my needs first.”
“You’re not the same service provider I fell for those many moons ago.”
“We’ve just grown apart.”
you me, it’s me you.
While you don’t want to rebound or go rushing into a new relationship, there is that little matter of, you know, needing a phone and a number.
If you’re here, we’re going to assume you’re thinking about Ting. You like the idea of paying for what you use, of not having to pick a bundled plan tying minutes, text messages and data together. You’ve tried (or are about to try) the Ting Calculator and realize (or you are about to realize) that Ting will probably save you money on your mobile plans. You love the idea of a no contract mobile carrier as well as being in control of the relationship.
To that end, we’ve put together a little guide to help switch mobile carriers. You can check it out in the Ting Help & Support section.
In this guide to switching mobile carriers we look at:
- How to sell your current phone easily and for top dollar.
- How to buy a new phone without carrier relief and why it’s the better choice.
- Carrier contract early termination fees – What they mean and how much you might have to pay to get out of your contract.
- Strategies for getting out of a contract without paying any early exit fees.
