I am a current Verizon customer. I am 95% sure I am going to be making the switch over to Ting, but I wanted to get some input before doing so.
Here is my potential setup:
1) Buy Sprint Samsung SII for the BYOD program
2) Activate Ting service and receive new telephone number from Ting
3) Port current Verizon telephone number to Google Voice
4) Forward GV calls to new Ting number
I am wondering about a couple of things though. I will be on stable WiFi 90% of the time (that being the draw of Ting and GV), but what about that 10% of the time that I am not? Will I still be able to make phone calls using my ported GV number or will I run into some serious data charges doing so? Would I be better off porting my current Verizon number to Ting, getting a new GV number and going that route (giving my GV number out to people, etc.)?
Any help would be much appreciated.
