Finding the right SIM card for your device is easy with our handy chart. Just follow the directions that apply to your device.
I have a GSM device.
You'll need to purchase a Ting GSM X1 SIM card.
We now offer the ability to pick up the Ting GSM X1 SIM at certain retail locations as well as other online stores.
While we offer these locations as a viable solution, we recommend calling ahead to ensure the Ting SIM is in stock at your local location.
I have a Sprint®*-branded device that I purchased from eBay, Amazon, Glyde, Newegg or another third party and it doesn't have a SIM card.
From our shop, you will select the CDMA network and simply indicate what phone you have from the drop-down menu to be directed to the correct CDMA SIM. Or search the table below to see if your device is listed and click the buy link to purchase a SIM card from the Ting shop. If your device isn't listed, then you don't need a SIM card.
I have a Sprint-branded device that I purchased from eBay, Amazon, Glyde, Newegg or another third party and it has a Sprint®*-branded SIM card already installed.
If your device already has a Sprint®*-branded SIM card installed it is safely reusable and you don't need to purchase another one.
I have a Sprint-branded device that I purchased directly from Ting.
If you purchased your device directly from Ting, your device will automatically come with a compatible SIM so you don't need to purchase another one.
I've ordered a Sprint-branded device from a third party but I don't have it yet so I don't know if it has a SIM card installed.
If your device isn't listed in the table below then you won't need to purchase a SIM card for it. If it is listed in the table below you'll have to wait until you receive it to know for sure if it has a SIM card. If you don't want to wait, you can purchase a SIM card in advance. This purchase won't be refundable.
**These devices may also take the Ting X1 GSM SIM card.
*** Please be advised that the Samsung Galaxy S5 in some situations (though rare), is compatible with the CDMA SIM card B1 or B5.
