*UPDATE* The winner of the Samsung ATIV S Neo from Ting is htatc! Congratulations, and enjoy your new device!

If you're looking for an alternative to your current carrier, and you haven't checked out Ting, you should definitely give them a close look. With no long term contracts, overages, or penalties, Ting offers you the tools you need to take complete control of your account, your usage and ultimately, your bill. You can buy a new or used device directly from them, or bring your own Sprint device and activate it on the Ting network!

We are partnering with Ting this week to give one lucky Windows Phone Central reader a brand new Samsung ATIV S Neo! This Windows 8 device features a big, bright display boasting 720x1280 pixel resolution, 16GB of internal memory, an 8MP rear camera and 1.9MP front camera, and a removable battery. Ting currently has the ATIV S Neo on sale for $422 (down from $469!).

To enter the contest, head over to the Ting website and look around. Just for doing that, you'll get a $25 credit to use for select devices or service! Come back here and tell us what you like about Ting, why you'd use their service over one of the big name service providers, what looks intriguing about Ting, etc. We want to hear what you think! We'll pick a winner next week and post it on the blogs, so make sure you check back.

As for rules, there are only a few. The contest is only open in the US, as Ting is a US service. When you enter, please be sure your email address is correct on your WPC account, otherwise we can't contact you and you can't get your prize! That would be a total bummer. Also, one entry per person, please. Keep it fair for everyone. Ok, that's it! Get to entering!
