After much deliberation for months, I finally took the plunge and signed up for Ting. My worst fears came true when I noticed that the Sprint coverage is next to nothing at my home. I have been suffering from dropped calls/no calls ever since. The call forward feature is good, but if am not in the vicinity of the forwarded call number, I have no way of knowing if someone is trying to reach me. Constantly, activating and deactivating call forward is annoying and painful.
Simultaneous ring may help customers in giving Ting a shot, especially when they are concerned about its coverage say at home or work area. Forward 'busy signal' calls just take way too long for callers to remain on the line.
The best option would be to enable simultaneous ring of one or more than one additional numbers aka google voice advanced features.
At home/work (no coverage), I can pick up the alternate phone.
While away from home/work (say at the grocery store or mall) assuming there is coverage, I can still receive calls on my cell phone.
Scheduled or geolocation based call forward will be great, but that's a long shot.
