Data only sim like Google's project fi
Completed

Project fi has a similar cellular phone model as ting and they have a option for a data only sim for use in tablets and laptop's that cost nothing but the data you use, could ting offer a sim card like this because it would be extremely useful because I don't want to have to pay a extra $6 every month for a tablet that i only use data on when I go on vacation, even if the data cost a bit more like $11 a gig that would be fine.

  • Hey Marco.

    You can use our sim card for data only purposes, meaning that you could insert the card into the device that uses just data. The thing is, it will of course cost $6.00 a month to have an active sim card to use the device on our network. Otherwise, if the sim card wasn't active on our network, you wouldn't be able to have data access.

  • Good observation. Google fi does not CHARGE for data-only SIM except for actual data used. On the downside, Google does NOT allow YouMail as they don't allow Conditional Call Forwarding. Balancing act to find the right carrier.

  • Fi's data-only SIM cards are also limited to 4 per account and must be on the T-Mobile network. With Ting, you get the benefit of our technically unlimited lines per account policy and the choice of 3 networks to share your data. Heck, they don't even have to share a network with your phone. If you want a V1 network phone coverage with a Sprint SIM hotspot, that's something you can do on Ting without much fuss.
