Re: BYOD - Ting

said by gweidenh:

Just wanted to follow up after a full month of usage.

Total bill for 2 phones and associated usage came out to $45 including all taxes. We ended up in the Medium bucket for all three services (Voice, Text, Data).

Comparing this to the $137/month I used to pay Sprint, we saved $92 in our first month with Ting!

At this rate, we will save well over $1000 in the first year alone.

To say I am happy would be an understatement!

Republic Wireless: Buy the phone and it's $19 a month, unlimited.
Two phones, $38/month.

It uses WiFi when can, otherwise Sprint Network... No limits on Cell usage.

3G only... so not fast ... but very cheap!

YMMV

Have a friend using Republic; he tells me how it's going on a regular basis.

"Buy the phone" can be an issue. Republic, not being "BYOD", requires the purchase of, at the moment, one specific MOTO handset for "$249 plus a $10 start-up fee and any applicable tax." That rather ups the ante...

Trying to stay OT: can you use the Republic phone as a broadband tether source, I wonder?

Not sanctioned officially, but sure, it works.
