Default Ting Bring Your Own Sprint LTE Device

They have now opened the flood gates! BYO(SLTE)D is now here. Of course with some limitations. But this is great!

They have LTE but only a few lame ass phones that can use it. Wimax might be alright for now, but I've read that it will be dropped in 2015 so....meh.

I'm only getting 8mb down 3.5 up... I'm thinking Sprint's still in the process of upgrading my area. I'm waaaaaay west of Chicago, bout 40 min from Aurora.

Will this work with a brand new sprint phone or does it need to have been prior activated on Sprint?

There are definitely certain restrictions for BYO(S)D, I would just call Ting support and talk to them, 1-855-846-4389. You will not be on hold long and they should have a quick answer for you. Repost back what you find out. Thanks
