I'm a potential new Ting customer and I want to move from Cricket to Ting, but I don't want to waste money buying a new phone and/or plan only to find out after I've ported my number across to Ting that I don't have GSM coverage at my house. I have run the compatibility checker and my old cricket phone is compatible so maybe I could keep my old phone although I realize I would have to have Cricket give me the unlock code and I'd have to buy a new Ting SIM card for $10. But I have checked the GSM coverage maps on Ting's website which says only that 'SOME HOUSES IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD HAVE SATISFACTORY COVERAGE' which does not give me a warm and fuzzy feeling. Is there a good way to test my coverage so I would know for sure that I have coverage before going through the hassle of porting out at Cricket and Porting in and Activating at Ting without it costing me a bunch of money and time and hassle that I would surely regret if really I don't have coverage? If I absolutely knew I would have even 'fair' coverage here at my house, I would switch to Ting in a heartbeat.
How do new customers know if Ting's coverage will work where they live before buying a phone and a plan?
