You can buy and bring a device from any one of a wide variety of retailers online. The page you'll land on will be for a device that's compatible with Ting, technologically speaking. Any purchase you make will be subject to the retailer's own unique terms, conditions, return and warranty policies, etc.
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 1-855-846-4389 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.

We don't often say things like "if you're looking for such and such, this is the so and so you need."
But seriously, if you're looking for a great phone in the sub-$200 range, the Samsung Galaxy J3 is where it's at. It's way, way sub-$200, too: We've got the J3 at just under $165.
So, let's get the guts of the Samsung Galaxy J3 out of the way so we can talk about a few things that set it apart from its ilk:
- 1.4 GHz quad-core processor
- 2,600 mAh battery
- 5MP rear camera
- 2MP front camera
What sets the Samsung Galaxy J3 apart
A 5-inch Super AMOLED screen. You don't tend to see Super AMOLED screens in the market segment; the Samsung Galaxy J3's bright and beautiful 5-inch display certainly gives it a leg up on the competition.
Expandable storage up to 256 GB lets you bring all your music, photos and videos with you without ever having to deal with those annoying "low storage space" messages.
Easy Mode is a Samsung Galaxy-exclusive feature and, unlike some Samsung Galaxy-exclusive features (we're looking at you, whatever you call that feature that supposedly scrolls a web page based on the viewer's eye movements), it can prove really useful. If a less tech-savvy person is to be the proud new owner of this smartphone, Easy Mode lessens the learning curve. It puts common phone functions front and center. It simplifies everything from making a phone call to finding and launching a favorite app to navigating the Settings menu.
With a 2600 mAh battery, the J3 lasts a full day with ease.
Add up to 256 GB of extra storage via MicroSD.
