We’ve had Virgin Mobile as our wireless carrier for years paying about $35 per line per month for unlimited service. I had no complaints, but I’m always looking for ways to cut our budget. It was time for new phones, which led me to look for new carriers as well. We don’t use a lot of minutes and use very little data. I was hoping to find a carrier that would end up costing us less per month based on our lower usage. I looked at several options and we ended up choosing Ting. I’ll tell you a little bit about Ting in this post and include a Ting review about our experience so far!
With light data usage, our monthly charge would only be around $40 per month for both of our lines. It is usage based, so your bill can vary from month to month. They do have an app where you can track how much usage you have in the current billing cycle to prevent any unhappy surprises. I also keep my mobile data turned off when I’m not using it to prevent background usage. Additionally, my phone has a data saver feature that I pair with the NetGuard data saver app.
Here’s what our usage looks like about halfway through our billing cycle.
You can bring your own device or purchase one through Ting. We purchased the devices through Ting, because we needed new ones anyway. They arrived quickly with a Ting sim card and were super easy to activate. Ting can work with CDMA or GSM devices, so there are lots of options!

So far, I have no complaints! The service has been great with no dropped calls. We haven’t traveled outside of Colorado yet, but I’ll update this review when we do! Our billing is set up with an automatic charge to our credit card, so that has been very convenient.
