Welcome to Ting, Charge customers
If you liked Charge, we think you’ll like Ting. We’re offering an exclusive, non-expiring $3 monthly line fee (regular $6) for every Charge customer that comes to Ting.
An exclusive offer for Charge customers
The team behind the data-only carrier Charge has decided to focus its efforts elsewhere. Rather than just leave customers in the lurch, Charge reached out to us, Ting, to work out a fair deal for customers who might otherwise be displaced. We’re happy to offer said fair deal. Fair deals are kind of our thing.
Charge will cease operations on June 30 and in advance of that, Charge customers are invited to accept a unique special offer from Ting. While Charge is doing the right thing and refunding its displaced customers on their unused balance, Ting is stepping up to offer an exclusive, non-expiring $3 monthly line fee.
How Ting and Charge are alike

* Support for the latest Android and iOS phones and tablets.
* No contracts and no commitments
* Pay for what you use instead of committing to a bloated plan.
* Simple, flexible mobile service with nothing to hide.
* Business ethos of treating people fairly and equitably.
How Ting and Charge stack up
Charge asked customers to purchase a bank of data up front and then draw from it as needed. Ting is a post-paid cell phone service where the level you reach for data (as well as minutes and text messages, if applicable) determines your bill. Each month, the counter resets. If you use very little, you pay very little. If you use more, you pay a little more.
With Ting, you get unprecedented control over your account. Turn services on or off at the account or the individual phone or device level. Services like data, voice or text messaging, MMS, International calling, tethering and much more on or off in your Ting control panel.
