Re: Ting is a company to watch Normally yes, in Ting's case Ting negotiated to have roaming included, which is probably why data is so expensive on this carrier
AT&T mnvo's like Straight Talk are a better deal for people who use their phone a lot. Unlimited talk, text and about 2GB of data on a network that has very good coverage and much better data speeds
500mins,1000texts and 2GB of data costs $62 way more, even if your a low data user and drop it down to 1GB it's $44 and your on an inferior network, until sprint improves I would never suggest anyone go to Sprint or any Sprint mvno.
I agree . Im a straight talk user and my service is pretty good except in some parts of my apartment where everybody has no service on their cell(you name the company and I will tell you the same)

But adding another phone, tablet, or mifi is only $6 and you can share the data, minute, texts. There is no vig per device like the other guys other than the $6.
The major weak spot is data on this. However if you are the typical user and not crazy, you can do texts through GV (no charge) and 500mb per user you are only at 1GB. Say 500 min of time (like att) would be $129/mo for the same thing versus $45 (2 phones, 1 GB, 0 texts). Now if that's not a good deal, I don't know what is. This is priced for multiple users, not really the single user. If you are a single user, VM/Boost/ST/PPC are better deals
Also what is not mentioned, I can roam into Canada for $.15 a minute, including LD. That is huge, whereas anybody else if close to $1 with LD and roaming.
The big downer is that VM/Boost phones not allowed, and that is what I have, so NG until the phones wear out (I only pay $25/mo anyways).

Not all StraightTalk customers are on Sprint. It depends on your phone and market. Some are VZW, some are Sprint and some are ATT. The model number stickers that are on the boxes tell you this, and so will your phone's settings.
95% of those phones though are on Sprint, and they do have roaming as well. ALL of Sprint's MVNOs can now have roaming included.
Im on ATT. Im using my old 3GS
