All new devices purchased from Ting come with a one-year manufacturer warranty from original date of sale. All refurbished devices purchased from Ting come with a 30-day warranty from original date of sale. Devices brought to Ting through the 'Bring Your Own Device' program are not covered by any warranty.
If your device is defective, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 18558464389 to see if it's eligible for a warranty replacement. If eligible, we'll replace the defective device with a new or refurbished device of the same or comparable model at our discretion.
Our conditions for a warranty claim are as follows:
Your warranty only covers defects in materials or workmanship. It does not cover defects arising from damage or normal wear-and-tear or aging.
The warranty covers issues such as: software-related issues, activation problems, camera defects, unresponsive keys, dead pixels, etc.
The warranty does not cover issues like: diminishing battery life, scratches, accidental damages, coverage issues, or software incompatibility/problems with 3rd-party apps.
Attempting to 'root' or otherwise 'mod' your phone will void its warranty.
Visible physical damage to your phone (e.g. liquid damage, cracked LCD, damaged housing) will void its warranty.
You must return the defective device back to us using the prepaid shipping label we give you.
Your defective device must be received at our warehouse within 21 days of when the replacement is shipped (don't worry - we'll remind you).
If the original isn't received within 21 days, we'll assume you wanted to keep both devices and will charge you for the replacement and express shipping fees, if applicable.
You must return all accessories (charger, cables, manual, etc.) with the defective device.
If components are missing, we will charge a nonrefundable missing parts fee as outlined here:
Your defective device must be returned in good condition.
If the device is determined to have some type of damage that voids its warranty (e.g. liquid damage, 'modded' OS, etc.), we may charge a nonrefundable damage fee at our discretion.
Depending on the extent of the damage, this fee may be up to the full retail price of the device.
You will not receive the damaged device back - we will dispose of it on your behalf.
Our warranties expressly exclude certain categories of damages and uses of your phone. These exclusions, which we do not cover, include possible costs or damages for which you will not be reimbursed. These exclusions are as follows:
The limits of what we provide above relate to the device itself. We are not responsible for lost data or the time that you were without a device. We encourage you to back up your data regularly, as no one else will take responsibility for the restoration of any lost data. We are not responsible for any consequential damages, from the loss of your device, the loss of your data, or the time you were without your device.
We do not warrant any device for merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. These warranties are specifically disclaimed.
Some jurisdictions require us to list our exclusions in VERY LARGE LETTERING, just so you know that this is really important stuff. So here it goes:
EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS WARRANTY AND TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, TING IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY OR CONDITION, OR UNDER ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF USE; LOSS OF REVENUE; LOSS OF ACTUAL OR ANTICIPATED PROFITS (INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS ON CONTRACTS); LOSS OF THE USE OF MONEY; LOSS OF ANTICIPATED SAVINGS; LOSS OF BUSINESS; LOSS OF OPPORTUNITY; LOSS OF GOODWILL; LOSS OF REPUTATION; LOSS OF, DAMAGE TO OR CORRUPTION OF DATA; OR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS OR DAMAGE HOWSOEVER CAUSED INCLUDING THE REPLACEMENT OF EQUIPMENT AND PROPERTY, ANY COSTS OF RECOVERING, PROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA STORED OR USED WITH APPLE PRODUCTS AND ANY FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA STORED ON THE PRODUCT. THE FOREGOING LIMITATION SHALL NOT APPLY TO DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS, OR ANY STATUTORY LIABILITY FOR INTENTIONAL AND GROSS NEGLIGENT ACTS AND/OR OMISSIONS. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
We do not manufacture our Devices. The only warranties applicable to our Devices are those extended by the manufacturers. We have no liability, therefore, in connection with Devices or for manufacturers' acts or omissions.
WE MAKE NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES PROVIDED HEREUNDER OR ANY SOFTWARE USED IN CONNECTION THEREWITH, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, AND TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WARRANTY OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE, QUALITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, PERFORMANCE OR ACCURACY. We expressly disclaim any and all implied warranties. WE DO NOT PROMISE ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED SERVICE AND DO NOT AUTHORIZE ANYONE TO MAKE WARRANTIES ON OUR BEHALF.

If "cheap and good enough in all respects" is what you're after, Alcatel's A30 phone might be exactly what you're looking for.
While only $129, there's no obvious place where Alcatel dropped the ball to get it there. Sure, the dated Snapdragon 210 processor and 2 gigabytes of RAM aren't going to win you any performance awards, but they're more than enough to let you check your email, watch videos and use the apps you know and love.
The A30's other specs similarly fall under the category of "competent, yet unremarkable," which is just about all you should hope for when it comes to a budget phone at this price tag. The A30's screen is 5 inches with a 720x1280 resolution, which should do you just fine, and its polycarbonate body is sturdy, fairly attractive and solid. Unlike many budget devices, however, the A30 runs Android 7.0 Nougat, which has been well-received for its new features and improved user interface.
Camera and battery life are both pretty good when considering this price point. The A30's camera can take some nice shots, especially outdoors, although the lighting (or lack thereof) can have a major impact on how the image turns out. The battery's capacity is 2460 mAh, which should be enough to get you through most of the day with light or medium usage.
While it's hard to see the A30 as a primary phone for any smartphone aficionado, it's most definitely a solid choice for your kids' starter smartphone or to use as a backup.
Get 16 GB of built-in storage, not typically found in budget smartphones.
Get your hands on a relatively unmodified build of Android 7.0 Nougat.
Add up to 32 GB with a MicroSD card.
