  • We're just as excited about it as you are, Jim, but have no official word at the moment. Keep an eye on our blog and BYOD list for any news!

  • I'm really hoping this will be added soon as well.  Even if we had to BYOD that would be perfect.

  • Just a little more info on the Moto E there isn't a CDMA version even available yet.  If you check here: http://www.motorola.com/us/consumers/shop-all-mobile-phones/Moto-E/moto-e.html and scroll to the bottom, but yeah that would be a great phone to be Tingable.

  • Per the 8/19 Device Update blog entry the Moto E was expected to be offered on Ting around mid-October.  I see that Republic Wireless now has the Moto E available for $99, so appears the CDMA version has been released.  Ting availability?

  • Hey Paul.  We know that device is coming soon, but don't have any confirmed date yet.  We'll definitely make an announcement once we do.

  • So, since you're fairly confident the Moto E is headed to Ting, what SIM card will we need to purchase? B1? C1?

  • Today's the last day of October... so we're a bit past the "mid-October" estimation date.  What's going on?

  • Felipe said, (after the mid-October date) that they do not have a date. You can subscribe to new device updates from the blog to get the latest news.

  • We've been seeing some delays on recent device shipments due to a changeover at Sprint (they've switched to using a different distributor).  We should have some updates on the Moto E soon.  It won't require a SIM card.

  • Just a question to those of you who are buying a Moto E.  Why are you buying it instead of the Boost Moto G.  It seems like the G is a better phone.  The only reason that I can come up with is the SD Card slot.  But is that really worth paying twice the price.

  • Hey Corey,

    Don't forget, the Moto E is officially supported by Ting. To the best of my knowledge, the Moto G is still bootleg.

    I'll bet the number of people who know about it AND are willing to roll their own support is still pretty small.

  • Justen Burdette / Felipe S --  The Ting specs page lists the Moto E with 4GB Storage and 2GB RAM. Is that RAM number a typo? The Motorola site lists it as only having 1GB RAM.

  • Hey Tom,

    I'm also seeing 1GB RAM in the official specs.  I've fixed the listing just now and will go trout our specs genius...

  • I just bought a Moto E from Ting. The phone gets a lot of positive reviews and I am excited to save a lot of money with Ting's plans.

    The main drawback seems to be lack of front-facing camera, which is not a big deal to me. I don't take a lot of selfless. The other main drawback is that it only has 4GB of storage. But, there seems to be ways to install apps on an external SD. Also, some users have had success in using a 64GB external SD, even though the specs say that the limit is 32GB.

    The Moto E has a fairly strong developer community on XDA, so the opportunity for custom ROMs and other mods is great.

  • So Jason (and the rest), is Moto E working on Ting yet, or is going to be working once Ting brings GSM in?

  • I have a Moto E on Ting and it is working now. It is CDMA. Everything works great except I am not getting voice mail notifications. I have a case open with Ting Support on it. That may or may not have anything to do with the device.

    Moto E is a great phone for people who don't need the latest and greatest technology and who don't want to spend a fortune.

  • Thanks Jason! I was looking to buy the new E http://goo.gl/JOUkqN, which is GSM, for the upcoming GSM on Ting. Not sure though, if they will support it.

    Ting, is this phone on plan for Ting GSM? Thanks!

  • Florin, as long as you get the unlocked GSM version from there you should be good. Here is the "unamed carrier partner's" specifics on what you need: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-4988

  • There is reference above to seeing the MotoE CDMA in the shop.  I'm wondering why I don't see a MotoE (CDMA or GSM) there now.  Is it just out of stock or something?

  • I'm successfully using a first-generation GSM Moto E.  I like it.  It doesn't have LTE, but speeds are fast enough.  Everything works, but I haven't tested tethering with it yet.
