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. Starting February 2015, folks will have a choice. Ting will start offering a GSM option for people who just want to pop a SIM card into their existing unlocked phone.

To be clear, Ting isn't severing its relationship with Sprint. GSM will appear as a separate option, with customers able to have both GSM and CDMA lines under a single account, where they utilize the same pool of minutes, texts, and data.

Ting Offers To Pay Up To $150 Of Your Early Termination Fee For Switching To The Budget Carrier

Are you tired of reading about some of the more nefarious developments at the Big Four US wireless carriers? Are you stuck in a two-year contract that you signed to get a steep discount on your phone? Are you ready to make a change to a carrier that at least pretends that it needs your business? Then Ting would like a word. The Sprint MVNO is doubling down on its offer to help pay off your early termination fee, up to $150.

Before today, Ting offered only a $75 credit for switching customers. The new offer also applies for families where each member has an applicable ETF, though there's no discount on the service itself for multiple phones.

Ting Now Has The Galaxy S5 Available For Pre-Order For Less Than $600, Will Start Shipping By May 5th

Samsung officially launched the Galaxy S5 globally last Friday, making it available for purchase at retailers all over the world. That said, not everyone is able to get their hands on it just yet. Sprint MVNO Ting isn't able to offer the devices at the same time as the carrier it's reliant on - but at least this time the wait isn't too long. Ting Galaxy S5 pre-orders are now available, with devices shipping out May 5th.

Ting is selling the Galaxy S5 for $597, a number that's lower than the full retail price at AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile.

[Now That's My Kind Of Party] Ting Turns Two Years Old, Celebrates By Lowering Data Prices

Full disclosure - Ting is my mobile provider of choice. I may write about the constant tug-of-war between the big four American carriers, but at the end of the day, I refuse to sign a two-year contract with anyone, and T-Mobile has precisely zero coverage in the drastically non-urban corner of the US that I'm from. Thankfully, I have options. Ting is celebrating its two-year anniversary this week, and it's doing so by slashing its data prices. As a Ting customer, this is my kind of party.

Sprint may still offer unlimited data plans, but Tuscows-owned Ting (a Sprint MVNO that uses the same network) has to charge higher rates.
