Ting has today announced that if you’ve got a Sprint network-compatible iPhone 5, you can now activate it on Ting, allowing you to then benefit from their pay-what-you-use mobile service.
The move follows on from the addition of support for Apple’s iPhone 4 smartphones a few month snack and Ting is also now looking to a soon accept Apple’s iPhone 5s and 5c smartphones as well.
Ting is a wireless service provider launched in February 2012 by Tucows, selling its services in the United States using theSprint CDMA, 3G, 4G WiMAX, and 4G LTE nationwide networks. Ting also offers free voice (but no data) roaming on compatible CDMA networks.
Ting’s business model does not subsidize phone sales, or require contracts beyond month-to-month. Pricing is in separate tiers for voice minutes, text messages, and data, each of which is adjusted month-to-month to match actual usage.
