Is there an official ting poster/flyer that I could print off and put up on the cork boards around my apartment complex or give out to people who might be interested in tings service?

I would also be interested in this. I've been told I am a great Ting salesman. This salesman would love some form of marketing material if available! If not, the voice and website combo seems to suffice.

Hi, Michael from marketing here.

As Ben says, we will be working on a full blown partner program for Ting, including a share of revenue from the customers you send to us. The best place to raise your hand for that is opensrs.com/ting. (OpenSRS is our partner program for the services we offer here at Tucows.) That will not be available for another couple of months.

But if you are feeling enthusiastic enough about Ting to tell some friends about us now, we are really grateful for the endorsement. As requested, I have produced a little flyer (enclosed) that might help explain Ting - either offline or online. I hope this helps.

One thing I noticed is that in most places on the site you only mention the Sprint network but the thing that really convinced me to use Ting was the fact that you offer roaming for calls and text on Verizon and that was the deciding factor for me over most other ones that use Sprint only. I don't need data everywhere but phone calls are important if my car brakes down.

It is included in your price. When you are off the Sprint Network you will not have data but voice and text still work using Verizon. It was the main reason  chose Ting over most of the others out there.

Okay, I am going to repeat what I think you said -- if there's no Sprint service at all in an area, I will be able to use Verizon's network for voice and text, and pay NOTHING above the ordinary bucket/per-minute rate in my Ting plan?

 

That's amazing.  Data aside, it means that Ting users effectively get Verizon's network for free!

 

That sounds too good to be true.  (Then again so do a lot of things about TIng.)

Hey folks... it's true. If you go off the Sprint network, you can voice roam with no additional fees on another CDMA carrier (like Verizon).

Note: we don't offer the same for data (it's ridiculously expensive to roam using data). If you go off network, you won't get data, period.

Hope this helps!
