Anyone using Ting?

It looks like I could get a single-line plan for a lot less using Ting than I could with any of the major carriers. A safe assumption of my usage says anywhere from $40-50/month for service depending on data usage. Anyone have experience with them? My current phone is compatible with both their GSM and CDMA networks.
No Ting, but Reddit loves them.
Have experience with the $30 prepaid WalMart T-Mobile plan - 100mins (5GB) a month of talk, but you can and likely will augment that with VOIP over data if it's important to you. Worth it to stay on T-Mo's network if need be and still the cheapest show in town.
@mertesn, I have been using Ting with a Nexus 5X for almost a year. I am on the Sprint network. You can choose that or the GSM (I think it's T-Mobile) network. Pick what works best in your area. I rarely use data and I keep an eye on my talk minutes. My bill is usually about $23. While it works well for me, I don't think they have any data coverage under roaming. You want to look at all of their coverage. But, it doesn't cost anything to try it and cancel any time. I can give you a referral for $25 credit.
Service is kind of spotty where I use it. Switched to Verizon.
