I've been a Ting customer since April 2012 and have an LG Optimus S. This phone really doesn't cut it for me anymore. I have a friend who is upgrading his phone and willing to sell me his Droid Bionic on the Verizon network. I'm usually can figure stuff out and also have some friends who are really savvy with unlocking, rooting, etc. that would probably help. Ideally I'd use my LG as donor phone and bring over the Bionic, then sell my LG here to someone else who wanted a cheap phone or to use as a donor.
The first question is how easy/hard (time, success rate, knowledge level) is it to bring over a verizon phone to Ting?
Second question, does using LG Optimus as a donor then render the phone useless?
My back up plan is to wait until BYOSD is available then buy a used Sprint phone.
Your feedback is appreciated.
