I use my data mostly at home off my cable wi fi yet everyday there is a minimum amount of ting data (app. 2-3 mb) of data used. At this rate in a 30 day billing cycle it puts you at 60-90mb without ever using ting data. The minimum cost for lowest tier is maxed at 100mb. So with out ever using a drop of ting data you are almost at the next tier, at that point the cost goes up drastically. I saved nothing my first month, this month i will save because i turned ting off before reaching second tier. Most carriers give you 1gb before charging more or throttling . I do not like the fact that i have to constantly keep an eye on my data usage as to not get to the second tier which is still only 500mb. in all the years i have tracked my data i have never come close to 1gb in a month so im not a heavy user. You can get 1 gb for about $45 through most carriers and not have to monitor your usage daily as i do with ting. Plus other carriers do not charge or for that matter care how many calls or texts you make. Very disappointed with ting and will be going to another carrier soon.
you dont really save any money with ting
