4. How do I know if there's an Activation Lock on the iPhone I've purchased?
If you've purchased an iPhone directly from Ting or a standard retailer then there won't be an Activation Lock on your phone. However, if you've purchased from a private seller, you'll want to check this.

5. Will I be able to use my unlocked iPhone internationally?
Yes. Any iPhone except the iPhone 4 can be unlocked for international travel. You'll need to contact Ting before you travel so that we can change those settings for you.
6. I did a jailbreak on my iPhone, can I still bring it to Ting?
A jailbroken iPhone may work on Ting, but we can't guarantee that. Of course, jailbreaking an iPhone, much like rooting an Android phone, voids its warranty and limits the support we can provide.
7. Do I need a special data plan for my iPhone and if so, what is the pricing?
