Once on your account settings screen, you will see a detailed breakdown of all the current account information and choices you can enable when it comes to account status settings.
The details screen contains most of the information we will use to stay in contact with you. When you click the edit pencil and you can:
- Check your account number.
- Update your account holder name.
- Set a primary contact device/number and set or update your alternate contact number.
- Update your contact email. This email will be the main source of verification and communication with Ting, it is imperative that you use one you have access to.
Why set a primary number?
Setting a Ting phone number as a primary contact is an alternative method for verification. If you are unable to access your contact email, and you have one of your lines set this way, we are able to offer a callback verification to move forward with assisting you. If you have only one phone number on your account, by default this will be used as the primary line should it be needed.
