A few weeks ago it was announced that Virgin Mobile would be shutting down and subscribers would be migrated to Boost Mobile. Typically when a provider shuts down we see a lot of special offers from other MVNOs looking to acquire the customers of the MVNO or provider that’s exiting the market. However, with the loss of Virgin Mobile, things have remained relatively quiet, that is until now.
How To Get The Promo From Tello Mobile
Tello Mobile has announced that it has launched a special offer for Virgin Mobile customers. New customers that port to Tello will receive 50% off their first month of service when they signup by using the promo code VIRGIN. The offer is good for any Tello plan, although Tello is marketing a specific plan on their offer details page. The plan that Tello is promoting will cost new customers $12 for their first month of service to get a plan that includes unlimited talk, text, and data with the first 6GB of data each month at 4G LTE data speeds before throttle to 2G or about 64Kbps.
Other popular Tello plans with discount pricing highlighted include the following:
- $5 (reg $10/month) - 1GB 4G LTE data
- $7 (reg $14/month) - 2GB 4G LTE data
- $9.50 (reg $19/month) - 4GB 4G LTE data
- $19.50 (reg $39/month) - 25GB 4G LTE data
All plans described also include unlimited talk, text, and data with the specified amount of data at 4G LTE data speeds before throttling to 2G data speeds. The plans also allow for mobile hotspot usage and calling to Canada, Mexico, and China at no extra charge. Tello also allows subscribers to custom build their own phone plans by choosing their own minute allotments separate from the data allotments that are available. All plans include unlimited text messaging. Talk plans without data, and data plans without talk can also be built. The only exception to the rule is the 25GB data allotment must be purchased with talk.
Tello has not specified how long the promotion will run for but keep in mind Virgin Mobile customers will begin to be migrated over to Boost Mobile in early February so it may not last beyond that. Although Tello is marketing this offer towards Virgin Mobile subscribers it does appear to be available to all new Tello Mobile customers.
