Ting operates on networks provided by T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint. You can sign up for Ting services online and as long as your phone is compatible with the network requirements, you won’t need to get a new handset. If you’re looking for a multi-line or family plan, Ting has an option for you. Although there are no discounts for each additional line, managing your cell phone plan is easier since you can make payments for a single account. Ting plans are ideal for users who tend to have variable usage from month to month and would prefer not to pay for talk time and data they don’t really use.
