There is an issue with Ting purchased Samsung Galaxy S6 and the embedded Mobile ID app that comes on the phone. I purchased the Samsung Galaxy S6 directly from Ting and fresh out of the box it has been experiencing a Mobile ID popup message stating 'Service unavailable' with the the explanation that 'An unexpected download error has occurred. Please try again. Code: 30'. This popup message appears every time I reboot the Ting provided S6 mobile phone, and it keeps reappearing periodically throughout the day. Even though this message only pops up a few times a day is not totally annoying, but it should not be happening at all. I have a help ticket open with Ting, but they have not responded to it in a few days which is why I'm posting this in the open forums now in case other S6 owners are having this same issue. Right now I'm not sure if Ting is working on this issue, or if they are even concerned about it as they have had all week to respond and/or resolve this issue. Ting help's last response was something about this Mobile ID app being 'bloatware'. Well, I cannot remove or even disable this Mobile ID app on the S6 so this needs to be resolved by Ting.
According to Sprint who is the home owner of Ting's service and the branded phones they sale, Sprint explains the Mobile ID as:
Mobile ID – Mobile ID delivers a complete mobile experience – centered on consumers’, students’ or businesses’ interests or favorite brands – including applications, widgets, ringtones and wallpapers, all in a couple of simple clicks. With more than 6 million downloads in the United States, Sprint smartphone users have already begun to harness the power of ID packs to create their own experiences while catering to different tastes and hobbies. Mobile ID enables personalization for the end user that offers access to a broad array of categories, allowing MVNOs to deliver a successful customized application to defined markets and customer segments.
Reading this, it looks like Ting could provide their own Ting Android app in a Mobile ID Pack offering to signify their own 'Brand'. But, alas their is nothing currently available so the Mobile ID app just annoys the user right now.
