TIP: Moving to Nexus 5 from Existing Ting Device

I just got my new Nexus 5 and Ting SIM card.  The migration was confusing.  I tried using the feature within MY DEVICES called "Move this number to another device" but this will NOT work.

I called support and found that I needed to ADD DEVICE and as I moved forward it did let me then choose to replace my old phone and use that number (meaning I did not add a new paid line).

Followed the instructions.

Manually rebooted and waited about four minutes and BINGO.  It ported.

  • That's not specific to the Nexus 5, of course.  Any time you're replacing with a new phone, you just go through the activation and you get to move the phone number.
