But adding another phone, tablet, or mifi is only $6 and you can share the data, minute, texts. There is no vig per device like the other guys other than the $6.
The major weak spot is data on this. However if you are the typical user and not crazy, you can do texts through GV (no charge) and 500mb per user you are only at 1GB. Say 500 min of time (like att) would be $129/mo for the same thing versus $45 (2 phones, 1 GB, 0 texts). Now if that's not a good deal, I don't know what is. This is priced for multiple users, not really the single user. If you are a single user, VM/Boost/ST/PPC are better deals
Also what is not mentioned, I can roam into Canada for $.15 a minute, including LD. That is huge, whereas anybody else if close to $1 with LD and roaming.
The big downer is that VM/Boost phones not allowed, and that is what I have, so NG until the phones wear out (I only pay $25/mo anyways).

Great so far My wife and I recently switched from AT&T to Ting, and we've been satisfied, for the most part. Sprint's network is about as good as AT&T in our area, and we have the added bonus of roaming (voice and text only - no data) on Verizon.
The main benefit for us is cost - we went from spending over $60 per month at AT&T for two phones with voice only (except for the occasional $2/MB or $.20/text when we accidentally used those features); this was after a 23% IBM employee discount. With Ting, our bill should be under $50, and we're using texting and data as much as we'd like.
The one problem with their pricing structure is the price of data - it's fairly expensive if used in large quantities. For us, this isn't an issue - we normally have wifi access anyways; it's nice that we can get occasional data access without spending $20/phone/month.
From what I've seen, their customer service seems to be very good - their employees are accessible and forthright with information. Activating our phones (including one port) went smoothly, though, so I haven't needed to contact them.
I'm very hopeful that they continue to succeed. Their pricing model should be very sustainable, since it (I assume) closely reflects the actual costs they incur with Sprint.
Re: VZ LTE
said by kontos:My sentiments exactly. Too many Sprint MVNO's. They offer good deals but it's just that Sprint's network sucks
wake me when there is a MVNO on the Verizon LTE network in my area. I'll be there in a heartbeat.
