I used Ting for a couple of years. Saved money for me, but then I found Hello. I pay $5 for unlimited calls and texts. I get 500 mbs of data also.

John:

Yes, wi-fi calling is available, we use it all the time

Yes, they do add taxes, our $18 bill becomes $19.60 (we are grandfathered in to a *better* price plan)

My experience with the Ting reps has always been outstanding.

As Bob wrote they are geeks who love to solve issues. They cannot possibly be given time limits as they have spent as much time as it takes to get me where I needed to be when I had questions..... and one time it was a really long call!

I've used Ting over a year now, maybe two, and like them a lot, especially their USA-based support.
Then again, I hardly use my phone. It saves me from a AAA membership in case the car were to break down, or to call home and say I'll be late, but a flip phone would probably serve me just as well.
Though another post recommended Hello, https://www.moneysavingpro.com/carriers/hello-mobile/reviews/ doesn't look promising.

I have been using Ting for several years and am quite satisfied, both with the service and the pricing. Recently, I had a no service problem and contacted Ting online. They said that I needed a new sim card, which they mailed out immediately. They suggested that, while I was waiting, I remover the current sim card for a few minutes, which solved the problem until the new card arrived.

Hmm, I save even more than that, and I still have unlimited talk and text. So, what is the difference? I eliminated the Internet from my 4G flip phone service. With no internet, that eliminates SMS text as well. Monthly with a military, and senior citizen discount, my monthly phone bill is $35.00. Nothing that you have shown gives you that.

I first heard about Ting a little over a year ago. I switched from my previous wireless carrier ($35/month) to Ting ($18/month + a few cents including taxes) in January 2021 and I bought a new and improved phone as well. Phone is all paid off now. I have been very happy with Ting's service and especially the price. We saved over $180 last year compared with our previous carrier. Switching was easy. Get a code from old carrier, do the switch online or over the phone, Ting sent me a SIM card which I put in my new phone. All done. Now I get unlimited talk and text and 5 Gigabytes of data. I've never run more data than that, but if I did it's $5 for another 5 Gig. Can't find a better price... so far.

a) yes, though it probably also depends on your phone.
b) No. My cost with Ting is $15/month plus about $3 and change for taxes.

Have you tried Tello Mobile. Besides all of the things you have listed, they offer FREE calls to over 60 foreign countries.

Ting Flex Plan with no data easily beats what you wrote as your cost. It is $10 per line, unlimited talk and text (plus taxes, maybe $2)

Do go to their website and check out Flex Plan near the bottom of this page of their website:

https://ting.com/plans

" Choose pay as you go data

Only pay for the data you use each month. If you use less, you pay less - it’s that simple. Plus, data is shared across all lines on your Flex account for even bigger savings.

Don’t use data? Only pay $10/month per line."

Several months ago I changed to US Mobile after comparing several MVNOs, including Ting. I have almost no data usage for 7 months and heavy data usage for 5 months. I have to be on Verizon for the 5 months to get decent data service. The Family Plan is $9 + fee per line for unlimited T&T and $2/GB for pooled data. It's easy to add data @ $2/GB or change the plan temporarily. The total for three lines is $32.48/mo including pooled 2 GB data.

My wife and I each have iphone SE's (original 2016 models- bought on ebay for $100 ea, 2 1/2 years ago). We're both on Red Pockets's $30/year, T-Mobile plan. 200 min/mo, 200 mb/mo, 1,000 texts/mo. for $5 total a month for the two of us. We've never hit those limits yet (but do have to watch data- use wifi for that whenever we can). Check out that on ebay under Red Pocket prepaid card. Red Pocket's been around since like 2004, or about five lifetimes for a MVNO!

I'll admit that I'm not well versed on Ting's new pricing, however I've been with Ting for years. I have 3 phones and my last bill was 41.00 for all three numbers. They have live people to answer the phone and they get back quickly if you email them. I'm phone shopping with them now since my i5 is becoming obsolete. It's been the best alarm clock I ever owned. I don't know that Ting would be a good fit for power users but it's great for those of us who don't talk much.
