Sprint MVNO Ting To Offer GSM Service Alongside CDMA Come February 2015

Ting has attracted many customers with its low-cost, pay-for-what-you-use tier-based approach to mobile service (give me a second, I'm sure I could fit more hyphens into this sentence), but some have been put off by the company's reliance on the Sprint network.

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom Finally Gets A KitKat OTA Update
