looks interesting until I saw their data coverage map....

I dont' get it... if they partner with T-Mobile, how can data coverage be lacking in so much of the country?

I cannot see any savings with Ting. You want to save $$$ and don't need a lot of data? Cricket's $30. plan on At&t network or MetroPCS (T-Mo network) at $30. Talk/text are unlimited.

Ting is not for everybody. Its for those who wants to save money as they don't use their phone a lot (especially data) but still want all the flexibility. On top of this, Ting has best customer service, almost 0 wait time when you call/chat and they don't provide diplomatic answer like all big providers.

Probably? I made a killing with the promo codes and am pretty sure I'm the reason they put a message that you weren't allowed to use Adwords to direct traffic. laugh out loud It was good when it lasted and paid for one of my Galaxy S4 phones, which were expensive at that time.

Would this be good for kids smart watch, I want my son to be able to call me form his watch, only for emergency reasons.

Do you know if this sim would work?

It's good when you combine a couple of lines together. My wife isn't a big data user, but makes some calls. I don't use the calls too much and farm most of my big data use off to a Freedompop hotspot when at work or in my car. Those two things combined with the fact I can now add my daughter in for $6 makes it possible to spend less than $50 for three lines.

Competition is getting stronger that the two lines for $50 might be possible with other carriers. Also, when I signed up 3 years ago the free hotspot feature was of more value before Freedompop came around. When I add a third line for tracking my daughter and making sure she has an emergency phone it is more worth it, but she likely will bump up the data cost, so I ended up putting her on Freedompop too.

I was referring to using Ting. Yes, I mentioned Freedompop a bit in my post, but I basically use it as a method to keeping my Ting bill low. Would I trust Freedompop as my sole telephone provider no way! For my kid to text me and play the occasional game and for running a tracker app it does the job for $0.
