While it's later than originally reported, customers using a Sprint-compatible iPhone 5 can now take their phone over to Mobile Virtual Network Operator Ting. You can either bring your existing device, or buy an unlocked iPhone 5 that works with Sprint's network. Though Sprint now sells the iPhone 5s and 5c, Ting cannot yet support those devices. This is due to limitations imposed by Sprint, according to the Ting blog:
We’ve talked before about some of the limitations on bringing your own device to Ting. Our network partner keeps some of the best phones for itself for a year. It’s a business move as they want to recoup some of the money they spent in marketing them. We get it. That doesn’t stop us from pushing though.
Will you be taking your iPhone 5 to Ting? Let us know below in the comments.
