Hello, everyone -
I am a prospective Ting customer who's currently with Credo Mobile, also a Sprint MVNO. Although I'm reasonably satisfied with Credo, I can't justify paying $72 a month given my usage habits and limited income. My contract expires in less than two months, so I'll almost certainly switch carriers, although I may not do so immediately. (I'd prefer to wait for Google and Apple to reveal their plans.)
I've been investigating Ting for weeks. My impression of you all is a positive one, and I find your pricing model especially appealing. Yes, I like you, I really like you--and I'd like to become your customer, too! Unfortunately, I may not be able to make the switch.
The problem is Android. I have cerebral palsy, and as such my dexterity and coordination are limited. I've got an aversion to touchscreens in general, and I've found Android 4.x's interface particularly ill-suited to my situation. I'm sure I could adapt to its workings, but ultimately I'd probably still find it annoying, and I don't want to pay hundreds of dollars for a device I can't use properly.
For me, it seems the best alternative is iOS. I know many people are critical of the OS--surely with some justification--and it isn't perfect for me, either. Still, it's substantially easier for me to handle than Android, and its speech recognition is better.
I'm aware that Ting is trying to get the iPhone in an effort to offer its customers more options. I appreciate their efforts, and I understand their reasoning. Please bear in mind, however, that in my situation the iPhone is a necessity, not simply a preference. I gotta have it, guys!
Thank you for your time, attention, and understanding.
P.S. I know Ting will soon carry Windows phones, but I'm afraid they're not an option for me. Indeed, given the choice, I'd use Android.
