What is Ting?

Ting is no BS mobile service.

Ting is an MVNO (reseller) of the nationwide Sprint network.
http://allaboutandroid.ting.com0:05:00

.

How is Ting different?

No contracts or ETFs: Truly and completely contract-free; no early termination fees or other BS.

No bundling or ride-along services: Choose from XS through XXL service levels for voice minutes, text messages and megabytes of data, all billed separately.

No overage charges or penalties: If you use more than you thought you would, just pay for what you used.

Credits on unused service: If you use less than you thought you would, Ting drops you down to the level you hit and credits the difference to you on your next bill.

.

No add-on charges: Voicemail, caller ID, tethering, hotspot, three-way calling, call forwarding and other features are all part of service; no add-on charges.

No mysterious line items on your bill: Ting charges for what you used plus whatever taxes we're legally required to collect. No hidden charges, recovery fees or other BS.

Unlimited devices on one plan: Have as many devices as you want on one plan sharing pooled minutes, messages and megabytes. Each device on a plan costs a flat $6 per month.

A powerful online account control panel: Take control of your account, your usage and bills in the powerful online control panel.

No-hold customer support: Call us at 1-855-TING-FTW anytime between 8am and 8pm EST and a real person will pick up the phone.

Excellent online support: http://help.ting.com has active customer forums, a simple and powerful help ticketing system, video tutorials, video Start Up Guides and much more.

.

How Ting works:

First you purchase your mobile device from Ting which you will receive in 2-5 business days. Then you activate your device with Ting and have the option to select a new phone number or port an existing one. Finally you select the monthly minutes, messages and megabytes plans that you think represent your usage and Ting will bill you at the beginning of your payment period but you will be charged or credited in the following pay period based on what you actually used.

JHHi AAA crew,
I enjoying watching your show and almost every show I find some new useful app to use.
I'm a developer myself and I would like to introduce you my app - it called NiLS and it's a lock screen widget for android 4.2 that displays notifications.
It has many great and unique features that other similar apps don't have and it's free.

I would be thankful if you'll have a look on it:

[1] Waze, the social-mapping service , was bought by Google for $1.1B. This after news had hit on different occasions of both Facebook and Apple possibly vying for the acquisition. Waze crowd sources its location data which usually means up tot he minute information on obstacles that might slow the user down, among other uses. Seems strategic on Google's part to snap up such a hot commodity to keep it from competitors. Can Google Maps be improved significantly from this? Will they runs seperately or join at some time?
[2] Here’s what Google said in March (6 month lead time): "CalDAV API will become available for whitelisted developers, and will be shut down for other developers on September 16, 2013. Most developers’ use cases are handled well by Google Calendar API, which we recommend using instead." Now Google is reversing its decision to make the API a partner-only offering simply because almost all its usage was driven by a few large developers. The company says in the last three months it has received “many requests” for access to CalDAV and was given many developers’ use cases, so it changed its mind. Furthermore, both the CalDAV and CardDAV APIs are getting the following features: Integration with the Google APIs Console. To start using CalDAV or CardDAV in your project, just enable it in the Console. OAuth 2.0 authentication.
[3] Expected to be unveiled at Samsung's Premier event June 20 in London, the Galaxy S4 Zoom, possibly the next phase of the Galaxy Camera from last year. Rumored specs: 1.6GHz dual-core processor 4.3″ qHD display 16MP camera (the massive bulge on its backside) 8GB internal storage microSD slot for expandable storage a dedicated shutter button Android 4.2.2 with Samsung’s TouchWiz.
[4] Android Central's sources confirm through that the Japanese manufacturer is indeed preparing a "Google Edition" of its flagship Xperia Z handset. Sony fans rejoice, if sources are to be believed! Sony Xperia Z, the waterproof flagship device in Sony's Android fleet, is soon to be released in a Google Edition, coming soon to the Play Store. No price or availability mentioned.
[5] Feel like you need iOS apps on Android? BlueStacks heard your call, and is bringing it to their soon to release set top gaming box as a competitor to the likes of Ouya. GamePop offered for free through end of June (console and controller), with $6.99 per month subscription. After that, console will sell for $129. Subscription gives unlimited access to 500+ Android titles at launch, as well as any iOS games that enter the library. How? iOS developers change the in-app payments to use Google or Amazon. BlueStacks then handles the conversion through their API-level virtualization technology they call "Looking Glass." BlueStack already has experience bringing Android apps to Mac and PC in a similar fashion. No launch date as of yet.
[6] REQUIRES ANDROID 4.0 and up
[7] Currently broken out as individual apps: • Gmail • Google Calendar • Chrome (which replaced the original OS-integrated Android Browser) • Hangouts (which replaced the original OS-integrated Google Talk) • YouTube • Google Search • Voice Search • Sound Search • Google Maps • Google Earth • Google+ • Google Play Music, Books, Movies, and Magazines • Google Currents • Google Wallet • Google Keyboard Not yet: Camera Gallery People Lock screen
