With the recent addition of a GSM network to Ting and our best Refer a Friend offer yet running until 11:59pm ET on June 8, 2015, there's never been a better time to introduce friends to Ting.
Forward this email on to offer friends and family an incredible $100 off a device or as Ting credit. For everyone that takes you up on the offer, we'll drop $50 into your account.
Credits will be applied as soon as your friend activates. If your friend buys a phone using your promo link, they'll need to activate by June 15, 2015 for you to receive the boosted Refer a Friend credit."
Ting is an MVNO (Virtual Mobile Network Operator) that offers service on Sprint and Tmobile. The company is based in Canada (Toronto) and are very nice to talk to via Customer Support. The proving model for Ting is unique: bucket system for calls, text and data. They charge a base $6 per month for service, and then your usage affects your price:
For example if you only used 100 texts on a month, you be charged $6 base plus $3 for text bucket, plus taxes.
With $100 in credit, you could get a few months of service if you aren't a big Data user.
Please bear with me while I gather lots of info for you guys. Just broke up a dog fight an hour ago and still trying to clean out wounds on myself and the furry offenders. So if anyone cares to help with a wiki, or just answering questions, that would be a great help.
"Using both Sprint's and T-Mobile's networks, depending on which phone you choose, Ting has an unusually configurable set of plans. You can custom-mix minutes, messages, and megabytes of data in six different buckets each, generating some very unusual plans: For instance, it's possible to do a plan that's only texting and data if you're not much of a talker.
Ting's best deals actually come with plans that don't have a lot of talking, as there's no unlimited talk or text options. A teenager, for instance, can get 100 minutes for voice calls, 500MB of data, and 4,000 text messages for $32.
Ting has a good selection of phones, but the real winner is the Readers' Choice OnePlus One, a cult Android device for $299. You can also bring unlocked T-Mobile-compatible devices and a limited number of Sprint devices over to Ting."
AND some info from Ting's FAQ Page: https://ting.com/facebook/faqs/ (I edited out some portions for the wiki)
What will I pay with Ting? Unlike typical mobile plans, what you pay adjusts up or down based on what you use. Customers routinely report 40 – 60% savings as compared with their previous mobile service.
Can I bring my own device? Absolutely. Any Sprint device on the Ting BYOD whitelist can make the move to Ting. There is no activation cost associated.
Ting currently supports the iPhone 4, 4s and 5 as part of our Bring your own device to Ting program. You can purchase one on the Ting shop from our partner Glyde.
We have a wide selection of feature phones, smartphones and data devices available for purchase. We also have used and refurbished devices available. You're welcome to bring a Sprint device to Ting too! Heck, we'll even help you sell your current device if it helps you to come over to mobile that makes sense.
Do you offer free voicemail, caller ID etc. etc.? Yes. We believe these services should be a part of mobile service and it doesn't feel fair to charge extra for them. You can opt to turn these services off in your Ting account control panel if you don't want them.
Can I tether my device or use it as a hotspot? If your device is capable of tethering and / or becoming a portable hotspot, by all means go ahead.
Can I have more than one device on my plan?
Absolutely. Have as many devices as you want on one plan, all sharing pooled minutes, messages and megabytes. Each active device on your account costs $6/mo.
Do you do family plans? Business plans?
Ting is perfect for families and businesses. You can have as many devices as you want on one account sharing pooled minutes, messages and megabytes. Each device on an account costs $6/mo. and Ting rates actually get better the more you use. Head to http://ting.com/business to learn more

No phone trees or robot receptionists and certainly no scripts or time limits. In other words, it's not like any other mobile phone service support help desk.
Do you have coverage in My Town, USA?
Ting is an MVNO on Sprint's nationwide network (and now on Tmobile's as well.) If you have a strong Sprint/Tmobile signal where you are then absolutely, yes. There are a few places where mobile networks have yet to properly reach though, alas. Check the Ting coverage map for your neck of the woods.
How do I cancel my account?
If we're just not for you, we'll respect your choice. Cancelling your Ting account is easy and we don't hide the cancel link on some obscure page on our website; it's right there, in your account control panel.

Should I cancel my current service before porting my number to Ting?
No, you must keep your account with your previous carrier active when porting your number to Ting. Otherwise, you risk losing your current phone number. Your account with your previous service provider will automatically be cancelled when the port completes. Porting a number to Ting takes 24h or less.
