Some new developments at Ting, my new favorite mobile phone provider, that are pretty exciting.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One are now officially supported and available to buy from the Ting device page. As of now devices “are shipping in 2-3 weeks.” The Samsung Galaxy S4 costs $596 and the HTC One costs $536. If you are new to Ting, or would like to learn more about it, check out my in-depth review.
You may also buy Sprint versions of these phones and activate them on the Ting network since the bring your own device program now includes LTE devices.
Because Ting is a no-contract carrier, the phones are somewhat expensive new, but if you look around on eBay or other places, you can find these devices for cheaper, especially if don’t mind buying a used device.
The iPhone has made its way to the Ting device page as well – you can sign up to be notified when Ting offers the iPhone, but there is no specific time-frame for when it will be available. Update: you can get the iPhone 4, 4s and 5 now. To stay up to date you can follow this or the Ting Blog for more information.
