Ting's coverage map shows coverage for our area, but Sprint says that they do not cover this area. How can I be sure I will have coverage? Thanks.

  • I can't speak for the roaming capabilities and cost (if any), but I have a Sprint plan now and get poor coverage around the house. All I did is set the phone to my WiFi and all those issues went away. 

    Anyone else have any ideas or knowledge of roaming costs if there are any??

  • Hi Bud, 

    What you're probably seeing is roaming voice coverage on our coverage map... you may want to open a help request with our support team and have them see if they can better qualify your address.

  • I'm new to smartphones.  I keep reading about having to get Google Voice and/or Groove IP.  From Michael Sweeney's comment, it appears these aren't necessary.  What's the scoop? for voice, text, and data?

  • Mark, google voice/groove IP is't required at all but a google account is, to use android.  The groove IP and google combo make it possible to send/receive free calls via wifi.  The google voice app allows you to do the same for text messages.  If you are consistently around reliable wifi connections, it's a very nice way to save on network costs.  Once you are familiar with it, it's nice.  grooveIP works pretty well over 4G as well, even 3g if it's a strong signal.  Of course, using google voice and grooveIP use data but not that much data.
