Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Answered

Yeah, I know it's a brand new device, but I can't help but wonder if there is (or will be) a way to get this device on Ting anytime within the next couple of months?

  • How has this not been answered? This is the only thing keeping me from switching to Ting.

  • We generally announce upcoming phones on our blog (at https://ting.com/blog/) as soon as we know for sure we're going to be offering them, so I'd suggest keeping an eye out there for any announcements.

  • Will there be a pre-order period for the Galaxy Note 2? This has been the phone I've been waiting for to switch to Ting, and I'd hate to miss out on it, since it was said <a href='https://ting.com/blog/device-update-lets-get-back-at-it/'>here</a> that there would be a very small quantity...

  • that link doesn't answer either the price or the pre-order question.

  • The link was just supposed to be the last thing I had heard about the Note2. I really don't want to miss out on it so I was trying to figure out how we go about making sure we get one of the "limited quantity" Note 2's?

  • The off contract price for the Note 2 from Sprint is $649. Ting does subsidize very slightly so considering that Sprint sells the 16 GB Galaxy SIII for $5_49_.99 off contract and Ting sells the same device at $52_9_.99 it is reasonable to predict that the Note 2 will be slightly less than $649 or perhaps $629.

  • Thank you for the price, but I'm a little more concerned about availability than price. It's the phone I've been waiting for to switch to Ting, and I really want to switch to Ting, so I'd like to miss out. But it was said there would be a limited quantity and it didn't sound like there would be a second wave of them. :-/

  • The post you're referring to said they were ordering a small quantity to see how they do.  This implies to me that if they were to sell out quickly, there'd be plenty of reason to re-order them.  The folks at Ting probably just want to make sure they don't wind up with a bunch of expensive phones just sitting around in their warehouse.

    Since they said that the device would be in the lineup in two weeks "supply chain willing" about a week ago, I'd check back in about 7 more days, give or take, and see what's up.

  • If the Note 2 sold out overnight then I can't imagine that there wouldn't be a second order. We are waiting for the Note 2 as well.

  • I'm chiming in to say the only thing keeping me from joining is the Note 2.  In fact last night I bit the bullet and joined Ting, ordering a Galaxy S3, but I don't really want an S3, I want a Note 2!  I found this thread and cancelled my S3 order.  When's the Note 2 coming??

  • The plan is for mid-December. That could change, of course, but that's when we're hoping to have it available.

  • As soon as the device is available for pre-order Lynn, it will go up on the site. If you're subscribed to our device news emails, you should get a notice pretty well as soon as its available so you can get that order in right away.

  • Has anyone had success porting a Galaxy Note 2 from Sprint? I have a Galaxy Note 2 on order from Ting but with it being on back order I'm afraid it won't make it in time for Xmas.

  • Michael,

    That is an LTE phone, so Sprint will not currently let is in through BYOD. You would need to buy a Ting phone & "hack" the Note 2, using the Ting phone as a donor..

  • I think at this point hacking a Sprint Note 2 would be counter productive. Just wait for the Ting shelves to fill up again.

  • Got my Galaxy Note 2 a couple of days before Xmas.  Haven't had the chance to activate it yet, but I'm ready!
