Re: [MBZ] OT: Ting cell phone service

2015-06-10 Thread Curt Raymond via Mercedes
I went with Republic Wireless almost a year ago from Verizon. My bill went from 
$91 to $43.I did have to buy a new phone but with that monthly savings it only 
took about 6 months to pay for it, never mind the cash I got back for selling 
an iPhone 5.
I get unlimited talk and text with 5GB data. Looks like with Ting I could 
potentially save some more since I never really go over about .5GB.LTE coverage 
seems to extend to my camp in Maine too which would be nice, currently I'm in 
roaming data there which mean I only get 25MB of data which runs out quick. Dad 
bought a hotspot so I can just buy a few gigs of data service but its not as 
handy as actually having it on my phone and my phone won't act as a hotspot on 
my current provider.Still, it doesn't look like I could save more than maybe 
$15/mo, lots of phone options though which is nice.
Angie is still using ATT @$70/mo, maybe this will be an option for her.

Love it.

A couple months ago I switched my wife's cell phone from Sprint to Ting, and 
for two months running we've saved $50 per month.

The switch was fairly painless, kept her original number, she's happy.

I picked Ting because they ride on Sprint's network, so we could keep my wife's 
Sprint phone, iPhone 4s.  Using their savings calculator I entered the usage 
data from four months of Sprint bills, and their estimated savings of $50/month 
has been spot-on for the first two months.

If you switch from ATT, you may need a new phone.

Yes, capitalism (market with lots of options) is good!  Government-enforced 
monopolies (obamacare) are bad...

Why would you need to buy a new phone, Curt?  My LG retails for $500, or
$150 copay under warranty.  That means I wouldn't want to switch from
Sprint.
