Ting is offering $100 phone/service credit when referred by a current member:

You could probably order a nexus 5 and simply pay the $6 device fee and simply discontinue service. Edit: sorry, it looks like this won't work since they have you order it off of google play.
You'll have to get a referral code from your favorite Ting user.

Per slickdeals rules, I can't post any referral codes, but you can probably find one by googling or contacting your favorite Ting user.

Good gravy! Best Refer a Friend offer ever


The best Black Friday deal this year is secret - for your friends and family only. From now until December 1 at 11:59pm ET, we’ll give everyone you refer $100 off an eligible device or as Ting credit if they buy used or activate a phone they already own. We'll give you a $50 thank you for every single successful referral in this time too.


If you’ve been trying to convince people to give Ting a try, now is the time. If they still aren’t sure, maybe direct their attention to Consumer Reports' recent article: Small carriers outrank the big ones in Consumer Reports' latest cell phone service survey.

We'll have some phones on sale for Black Friday / Cyber Monday too, just to sweeten the pot further.

One bit of housekeeping: You'll receive your $50 credit as soon as your friend activates a phone on Ting. If they're buying a phone from us, they'll need to activate it before 11:59pm ET on December 18 for your boosted Refer a Friend credit to be applied.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Just switched to Ting a month ago and it's great! My wife and I have a Nexus 5 and an iPhone 5 on it, and it looks like we'll pay about $50 a month for both of us. This referral deal is really nice.

I've been very satisfied with Ting for the month that I've been using it. Our iPhones transferred over from our previous carrier, and our bill will be ~$50-60 for the month. The data is Sprint... not terrible, but not the best. for 1/3 the price, it's well worth it to me though.

I've been very happy with Ting. I switched from Sprint in Sep 2013, I think, and it's saved me so much money.

I had a SIII on Sprint and was paying for unlimited internet/text and 450 minutes (most of which are not used).

Broke my contract with I think 6 or 7 months left and switched to Ting. Paid an ETF of ~$130(?) to Sprint. Received a credit from Ting for my ETF ($55). Also received a $25 bonus for using someone's referral code. Received a bonus of $50 for referring another friend.

Sprint - monthly bill of $92 with taxes.
Ting - monthly bill is now $17-22 with taxes.

In the 14 or so months, if I stayed with Sprint, I would have paid $1300.
With Ting and my credits with the Sprint ETF fee, I've paid about $300.

I wonder how this deal and network is compared to Cricket Wireless. With Cricket you get a FAR phone of your choice.

Anyone know if Ting will accept the new Sprint Prepaid phones like the LG Volt or S III? Also is it native coverage only or is roaming included? I know that Boost and Virgin phones are locked down..tight.Thanks

Not sure the ultra mobile offer is still live, but if so, it is a good deal for T-Mobile. If you want Sprint, Ting is the way to go.

Ting will roam on Verizon for voice/text but not data. I would think if the prepaid phone works natively on Sprint, it can be brought over to Ting, but ask them first, they have great customer service.

Depends on what you use at TIng. I like Cricket best especially with 5 users you get a $100 discount. So that each user gets unlimited voice and text and 1gb high speed data throttled to 128k afterward which is enough for Pandora for $40 a month before the $100 discount. So 5 x $40 = $200 minus $100 discount equals $100 divided by 5 equals $20 per line per month after all taxes and fees

The wife and I have Nexus 4 and two of the people have Moto G and the last an iPhone. The Nexus 4 and iPhone were brought in and the Moto G were bought from Cricket. I think Cricket is the best deal if you have multiple users and are not light users. If you use your phone very little I think there are better options like Ting or Page Plus.

At the end of the day I am just glad we have options. Since the late 90s I have gone from AT&T/Bellsouth prepaid to T-Mobile contract to Virgin Mobile prepaid to Straight Talk prepaid to now Cricket.prepaid. When my now wife and I met she was paying Verizon $60 a month for a flip phone. I moved her to T-Mobile contract then Virgin Mobile prepaid then Page Plus prepaid then Straight Talk prepaid and now Cricket prepaid.

The only one of those companies I have anything bad to say is Virgin Mobile, their data service is horrible and you can only buy their over priced phones. When we left them we were still on Motorola Triumphs running aftermarket ROMs so that we could stay on the $25 grandfathered plan. Now we are paying $5 less and service is stellar.

Thanks for the reply. I am a power user, which is why I decided to go with Ting. Plus a free phone is hard to beat.
