Alerts: ability to send more than one text for each alert.

Account alerts allow you to send the alerts to several email addresses, but only one text per alert.

For those of us with 2 or more phones  on Ting it would be nice to have the option to send multiple texts from a single alert.

I have a couple of alerts that are exactly the same, except for different text recipients.

  • Good suggestion. Right now we don't allow you to text to non-Ting phones but we could let you pick multiple Ting phones to text to.

    I'll add that to the To Do list. No promises though. :)

  • I emailed a suggestion and Brennan got back to me.  It would be nice to be able to pick from Ting selected texts so (example) when your kids are texting too much I could set up an alert to send a text that says something silly like... it's me, your phone.  You sent over 200 texts in the last 3 hrs. I'm getting tired". Or "Data overload, abort, abort.".  Just silly reminders that can be chosen from a dropdown option when setting up the alerts.  I don't even know what it will send yet so I guess I have to wait to see what Ting sends out if we trigger an alert.

  • Hey Tammy, that's a really cute idea!

    I'm not sure if it's something we'll be able to get to any time soon as we've got so much on our plate right now, but thanks for sharing! It's definitely been noted.

  • You can send yourself a text via the email field, just send it to [your 10-digit number@message.ting.com. Most wireless carriers have support for this, for example if your number is (800) 555-1212 you could text your phone via email as follows:

    8005551212@message.ting.com (Ting)

    8005551212@txt.att.net (AT&T)

    8005551212@messaging.sprintpcs.com (Sprint)

    8005551212@tmomail.net (T-Mobile)

    8005551212@vtext.com (Verizion)
