With Ting my average bill is between $48 to $58 per month with 3 smart phones. I brought my own smartphones and easily ported my existing phone number to TING on the Sprint (CDMA) network having the same 4G LTE nationwide service for which I was previously paying Sprint $155 per month!
TING’s monthly price is $6 per phone per month plus usage (calling minutes, data, and sms/mms texts). See the rates chart below.

Submit a Complaint to the FTC National Do Not Call Registry
Your Complaint Has Been Accepted
Thank you for filing your complaint with the National Do Not Call Registry.
Do not call complaints will be entered into a secure online database available to civil and criminal law enforcement agencies. While the FTC does not resolve individual consumer problems, your complaint will help the agency investigate the company, and could lead to law enforcement action.
Click on a question below to learn more.
Will I hear back from the FTC regarding my complaint?
Due to the volume of complaints, the FTC cannot respond directly to every complaint. The FTC and other law enforcement agencies analyze complaints to spot trends and to identify and take action against the people responsible for these illegal calls.
What can I do to stop unwanted calls?
Make sure your number is on the Do Not Call Registry.
Hang up on illegal sales calls. If your number is on the Registry, and you get a sales call, or you get an illegal robocall, don’t interact in any way. Don’t press buttons to be taken off the call list or to talk to a live person. Doing so will probably lead to more unwanted calls. Instead, hang up and file a complaint with the FTC.
Investigate whether call blocking can help.
- If you get repeated illegal calls from one particular number, contact your phone company. Ask to block that number, but first ask whether there’s a fee for this service.
- If you get unwanted calls from many different numbers, look into a call blocking solution. There are online call blocking services, call blocking boxes, and smartphone apps that block unwanted calls. Research whether the service costs money and whether it’s effective. Do an online search to look for reviews from experts and other users.
My number is on the Registry, so why am I still getting illegal calls?
Since 2009, the FTC has seen a significant increase in the number of illegal sales calls – particularly robocalls. The reason is technology. Internet powered phone systems make it cheap and easy for scammers to make illegal calls from anywhere in the world, and to display fake caller ID information, which helps them hide from law enforcement.
What is the FTC doing to stop these calls?
To date, the FTC has sued hundreds of companies and individuals who were responsible for placing unwanted calls, and has obtained over a billion dollars in judgments against violators.
In addition, the FTC is leading several initiatives to develop a technology-based solution. The FTC has sponsored a series of robocall contests challenging the tech savvy public to design tools that block robocalls and help investigators track down and stop robocallers. The FTC also is encouraging industry efforts to combat caller ID spoofing.
I gave you the phone number of the company who called me illegally. Why isn’t the FTC doing something?
Current technology makes it easy for scammers to fake or “spoof” caller ID information, so the number you reported in your complaint probably isn’t real. Without more information, it’s difficult for the FTC and other law enforcement agencies to identify the actual caller. Nonetheless, the FTC analyzes complaint data and trends to identify illegal callers based on calling patterns. The agency also is pursuing a variety of technology-based solutions to combat illegal calls and practices.

- You will find Import Export Tools on the Tools Menu of Thunderbird. Select tools, then point to Import Export Tools from the Tools drop down list. You will see all the options for importing and exporting messages, etc.
USING IMPORT EXPORT TOOLS TO BACKUP MESSAGES TO YOUR HARD DRIVE. HERE IS MY RECOMMENDED BACKUP METHOD:
- Select the folder you wish to backup such as the INBOX.
- On the Menu, select TOOLS, point to IMPORT EXPORT TOOLS, point to EXPORT ALL MESSAGES IN THE FOLDER, and select EML FORMAT.
- Navigate to your downloads folder, and create a subfolder with the name of your email account, and create a subfolder called INBOX on your hard drive. Select that subfolder to export all the messages in your Thunderbird INBOX to that new subfolder.
- When your email messages are somehow corrupted or deleted from your email account inbox, or if you wish to create a new email account (such as an IMAP account) for which you want to IMPORT the messages to the new INBOX of the IMAP account, and have them Synchronized / Uploaded to the IMAP server Inbox, well you then have the ability to IMPORT all the Messages from your hard disk sub-folder located in your customer downloads path at / INBOX / MESSAGES folder that was created when you exported all of your EML files to a backup.
- The EML files will be backed-up into a MESSAGES sub-folder under the INBOX backup folder that you created, and the folder path to those files will look something like the following image. The files with the blue Tbird Icon are all *.EML files. All email attachments are preserved.
NOTE, you can do a separate backup of all the email messages in each email folder of your email account, such as SENT ITEMS, and DRAFTS, and IMPORTANT folder, etc. Just make a separate backup folder for each. You can import them folder-by-folder if you ever need to reconstruct your Email Account.
[Solved] Exchange 2003 smtp;554 5.6.1 Caused by Thunderbird – Body Type Not Supported
Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 554 5.6.1 Body type not supported by remote host
You try to send an email from Mozilla Thunderbird, but your Exchange Server 2003 returns the email to you as undeliverable with the diagnostic message as follows:
The message contains a content type that is not supported <mailservername.domain.com #5.6.1 smtp;554 5.6.1 Body type not suported by remote host>
Reporting-MTA: dns; dns.yourdomain.local
x-Supplemental-Info: <YourExchangeServerName #5.6.1 smtp;554 5.6.1 Body type not supported by Remote Host >
Your Exchange Server Logs probably show this message:
smtp;554 5.6.1 Body type not supported by Remote Host
If you can send email through Outlook Web Access but not through Thunderbird email client, then there must be a problem with the handshake of encoding methods between Thunderbird and Exchange 2003.
SOLUTION: Open Thunderbird and try this:
- Go to Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Config Editor. See bottom right corner of this image for Config Editor button:
- Click on the “I’ll be careful, I promise!” button.
- Type “mime” into the Filter box.
- Double Click “mail.strictly_mime” to change the setting from “false” to “true”. Or, you can right-click “mail.strictly_mime” and left click toggle True
- Close all the windows that have popped up in the process.
- Restart Thunderbird.
- Test outgoing email now.
