  • YES! I would move to Ting in a heartbeat. I'd even pay the cancellation fee to get out of my current contract. Being on the Windows Phone!

  • During a long, complicated chain of events, I owned a Nokia Lumia 710 that operated for about five days before being reported as stolen and rendered more trouble to make work than I wanted to deal with.  I was very impressed with the OS.  I liked its simplicity and found it quite user friendly.  I will look for another Windows phone now that I have my refund for the one previously mentioned unless I decide to make the move to Ting.  I liked it a lot, but it's not a deal breaker.

  • I was going to stay out of this and see how it played out, but I must say I got my notice of a June beta invite from another company selling cell service based off wifi today and my only thought aside from yes was, I wish they had windows phone. I can pretty much do the wifi thing with Ting and would much prefer a windows phone to android at this point. Add me to the list of wanting a windows phone. If the rumors of the new lg windows phone to sprint are true, I say buy some, I will join you then too (I hope I don't lose my spot in the beta for posting this...)

  • Love Android here, not a huge fan of Windows Phone. However, I am definitely on board to support this. You cannot just have love for one product, a service must offer a broad range of products to match customer needs/requests.

  • I've been looking at cell phones for a while, and I have an android tablet.  Not bad, but if I were going to a cell service from tracphones, I WANT to go WP7.  Any path to WP7 if you get it in the future if I pick up Android now?

  • I would personally have an interest in three Windows phones. The Ting business model looks very good. Honestly the ability to just buy an unlocked phone from LetsTalk or someone similar and then bring it to Ting would be ideal.

  • I'd give it a go as well.  Windows mobile seems much more interesting since the updates.  Though, on a practical level it may be too soon for Ting to invest because the upcoming hardware and software changes.  I can't imagine Ting would be willing to offer anything more than one windows device right now and as such the choice would have to be very deliberate to ensure it's something appealing to most users.  The latter is very hard to do, btw.

  • Guys, it may help Ting to know which windows phones you have in mind.  I'm thinking perhaps something like the HTC arrive or the Trophy.  There aren't many (if any) Large screen (4.3 and higher) screens for CDMA of which I'm aware.

    Here is a link for current windows phones:  http://www.microsoft.com/windowsphone/en-us/buy/7/default.aspx?pf=true

  • Ting.com should wait until Windows Phone 8 comes out.  The current crop of great Windows Phones (Lumia 900 and Titan 2) will not be upgradable to the next windows phone platform due late this year/ early next year.   I'd hate to buy a unsubsidized Windows phone ($500-$650) and find out that it will be stuck on the current os Mango.   I have HTC Titan from att and love it, but I can't complain about  being stuck on Mango because I got it practically free with outrageous monthly phone bills.  I hope Ting.com is around when my contract is up, because then I'd want my windows phone on ting.com!!!!

  • I'm a big fan of Windows phone and would certainly like to see options for both cheap first-gen (i.e. Samsung Focus) and some type of (high end / expensive) upcoming Windows 8 phones.  I bought the Samsung Transform Ultra for my wife via Ting to replace a feature phone with something better, but I just can't switch to an android for my personal cell phone after using and loving my Windows Phone for the past 18 months.

  • Ting, I know you don't owe us anything as not yet customers, but I would love to have a response for those of us wondering about you getting a Windows phone. Is it  a possibility in the future? I would feel better about buying an Android with you now, if I knew I could go Windows phone in the future.

  • So I'm not sure what Tings relationship is with Sprint, but I think the reason Ting doesn't have any windows phone is because sprint doesn't really have any, searching their website Sprint only offers 2 windows phones.  (neither of which are very good in my opinion).

    So my conspiracy theory is that sprint wont let Ting have an iPhone or a windows phone because they see those phones as contract drivers and would rather people sign up for sprint than have to compete with Ting.  DUN DUN DUUUUUUNNNNNN, remember THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE (x-files ftw).  

    I so dearly want to be a Ting subscriber, but can't get myself to buy another android.  Good luck Ting hope you get an iphone or windows phone and take the market by storm.

  • You mention the carrying costs of the phone being high, and that we all understand. As you are limited to basically buying the phones from sprint in a round about fashion, could you not set up a way to offer the phone with a longer wait time on the shipment and then ship it to. Then, if demand is justified you can stock them. I know that this would be a lot harder, and sprint might say no. That would at least open the door to another group of potential customers. This is not an idea that I would keep forever, but for the first year as you work on brand recognition this could help. Also, as the new phones are coming out in the fall the demand is at a low point, but you could negotiate a deal where you could do a presale of a new Windows phone. Yes, I know there are a crazy amount a variables at work. Thanks.

  • I'm planing to switch to Ting regardless, however I would much prefer a windows phone over an android. I've owned neither, but looking at both I just think I'd like the MP better. *shrugs* Either way, I'm going to Ting for their pricing and self service model not for the phone it's self.

  • I've no problem with Ting adding BB, WP or iOS phones to their mix. The more, the merrier, and a wider and more diverse customer base would help prove their mission is not just theoretically possible but also viable and profitable. I'm an Android person, but I've always been a big supporter of open-source kernel based platforms like Android and Linux, so that's my angle. Just keep the selection to a minimum, k? I don't want to see a bazillion pages of phones to choose from like the Big Idiots all have. Just pick two or three really, really good ones from each OS and leave it at that. And while you're at it, can you add one or two basic (even more basic that the Kyocera on there now) feature pr basic voice phones for people like my dad - who doesn't text, email or in fact even understand how to check his voice mail?

  • Ben,

    "Holding stock on phone devices is one of the most expensive things we do as a new phone company." 

    This makes sense, but then you must make good money on it, or you would offer a "bring your phone" option. (perhaps charging more than $6/mo to cover added customer service costs.
