Recently I switched from Virgin Mobile to Ting. Here are a few reasons that Ting is better than Virgin Mobile:
- Customer Service!! Ting’s customer service is fast and fantastic. When you call Ting’s customer service, you don’t get funneled into a deep menu system. Instead, a human being picks up the phone after a few rings and helps you. They actually know about their products and services or have access to other people who can answer more complicated questions. I have called them a few times so far and I am sold. All companies should do customer service like Ting does customer service!
- Price! On Virgin Mobile I had service for 2 phones and those phones were costing me $70/mo. On Ting I have service for 4 phones and it is costing me $54/mo.
- App!! The Ting app on Android is great! It lets me track my usage and set alerts for myself and estimates my next bill. In contrast, when I was on Virgin Mobile I actually built my own app to to track my used minutes. The company supplied app was useless.
- My MMS picture messages finally work. On Virgin Mobile they never worked properly. I would get empty mms messages and not know what was being said. On Ting, the messages at least come though and I can read them. I still have the Android problem that the stock messaging app mismanages group chats but at least I get all the messages now!
