So many people post that their struggle with Ting is that they came from unlimited service and are having SO much trouble staying under whatever minute threshold they have set their personal goal to. This can be especially hard if you have a multi line plan. Are you operating with Ting as your "only" phone? If so, that may not be realistic if you want to stay under a certain number of minutes. We wanted to ditch the cable company home phone, but with kids at home that need to connect with us, and elderly parents who are not going to text and email that need to talk live, we decided that we still needed a home phone. We got a basic talk box (free box if you order through their website), which connects to your cable or dsl modem for your home internet service, and gives you unlimited home phone service in the US for $9.99 a month plus tax. It's owned by vonage, so it's known and reliable. (Not the case with other cheaper knock offs I've tried) I just logged in to look, and we aren't even done with a month yet and have used over 500 minutes this month at home...so those are minutes I didn't put against my ting plan, keeping the overall cost down. SO, if you are heck bent on a cut rate cell phone plan that is not unlimited, it may not be price friendly to go with "no home phone."
