I tried the Xfinity 2 Go when they launched it last year and they advertised as being available. When I called to order it, the reps never even heard of it. That being said, that was a hint at the quality of the customer support. I canceled it within the 30 day customer guarantee and switched to Verizon for mobile broadband. -- All of my CPE (including my EMTA) is customer owned. The only Comcast owned equipment in my house is the CableCards in the two TiVO boxes I own.
I pay $35 a month for Virgin Mobile with unlimited web, texting, and 300 voice minutes. I must have used between 0 to 300 MB a month depending on whether I'm away from home or not.
But then in my opinion, I think it'll be a waste of money to try out Ting because it'll be a hassle to get a Ting's version of LG Optimus.
I wanted an unlocked Galaxy Nexus with a pure Google experience even though I can live without a MicroSD slot. In Amazon.com for a 16GB model, I saw an import price of $800 (do a search in Amazon.com). Right now, I cannot afford it and I'll have to wait until I get my laptop paid off in Amazon.com.
So for now, I'll keep my LG Optimus V phone for now with Virgin Mobile.
It'd be nice of Ting is an NVMO provider of T-Mobile, but T-Mobile already provides a $30/month 100-minute unlimited web/texting plan. I'm unsure if Ting is a good alternative to Virgin Mobile, though. -- Current Soft Phone (temp): Ekiga (ordered Yealink T22P to switch from Ekiga) Phone System: Asterisk 1.8; Server: Ubuntu Server 10.04 with Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard as guest
