Whether you’re a new Ting customer or you’re thinking about making the switch, there are a few things you should know about us. Instead of picking a plan or paying exorbitant fees for unlimited, you simply pay a fair rate for your minutes, messages and data at the end of the month. Flexible pricing is the smarter choice for mobile, but a rarity in the American mobile industry.

Since Ting does mobile differently, you may still have some questions about how to make the most of your cell phone service with Ting. We decided to ask our customers about the one thing every new Ting customer (or someone interested in switching to Ting) should know and received a ton of responses – check out the Facebook post here.

From compatibility to authenticity, our customers had a lot of advice for Ting newcomers. We’ve shared ten of our favorites below.



Make a custom ringtone for Android and iPhone


Quick tips to get the most from your phone, your favorite apps and your Ting service. No fluff. Just the tips.

Limit background data usage with Data Saver


Quick tips to get the most from your phone, your favorite apps and your Ting service. No fluff. Just the tips.

Data Saver in Android Nougat

Lowering your monthly data usage gets easier and easier.

Android’s latest operating system, 7.0 Nougat, includes a new Data saver toggle that sits inside the Android Settings menu.

Data saver is a brand new feature that, when you’re connected to mobile data, limits background processes so apps can only use a small amount of cellular data when the app isn’t explicitly opened. This means you’ll still get email updates, Facebook messages and other data-related notifications when Data saver is enabled, you’ll just see them less frequently than before. Once you’re back on a Wi-Fi connection, things resume to normal. You’ll receive all your notifications and updates the second they happen.

Say goodbye to apps that use 200 MB of mobile data in the background without your knowledge. Say hello to a lower phone bill if you’re with a pay for what you use provider like Ting.
