*Update* The winner of the HTC One from Ting is schnoid!! Congratulations, and enjoy your new phone!

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 Android Central reader a brand new HTC One! This device features a gorgeous 4.7-inch screen, a quad-core 1.7 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM, and a camera to make all the other smartphones jealous.

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 Android Central 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!

Check out Ting and get a $25 credit!
