Ting (Cell) Update

February 2nd, 2020 at 05:20 am

If you hadn't heard, Ting is adding the Verizon network. They initially had the Sprint network, and then added T-Mobile at some point. Later this year it will be all three networks.

They don't have a date yet, but I will pass along if I hear. I just read that they want to roll out the Verizon option early this year.

It's nice to have the multiple options. At current I am on the Sprint network and MH is on the T-Mobile network. I will probably want to switch over to Verizon. This way, when we travel, we have better coverage. It's a neat perk that we aren't locked into all having to be on the same cell network.

I haven't otherwise done a cell/Ting update in a while. Not much to report. My mom dropped off of our plan. We had been going in 50/50 with my parents, for a while. But when we added our kids, I was just having my parents reimburse me $144 per year for their two lines ($6/month/each). We were using most the data/minutes and it wasn't worth tracking once we got so lopsided. Then my mom dropped out mid-2019 so I didn't ask them for any reimbursements last year. Will just cover my dad's cell phone ($6/month, plus some occasional extra travel expenses).

I just looked through the past several months and we've been paying $80 most months. That works out to $16 per month per line.

If you haven't heard of Ting, it's a no-contract, no-commitment cell service. You only pay for what you use. We just pay the $6/line and then we pool all of our data/texts/minutes, which are charged in addition.

We have been using Ting since 2013. They have been exceptional.

    Ting is awesome! I’m not as careful as I could be with data use, so our bill for two lines averages $45/month. Still a lot less than I paid ATT for one line - $75!

    Do you know if it will still cost the same with the Verizon option? We are using the Sprint option, but they aren't always so great about texts going through when you send them. Tonight it took two hours for a text my husband sent to come through to me. It's only occasional but it does bug me. I love Ting. We pay less than $50 a month for four lines.

    Yes, the prices will be the same no matter what network you choose.
    You might have to buy a different SIM card? It may depend on phone compatibility. I don't know, but just speaking from past experience.
