Tello's $5 Phone Plan Offer Fine Print
This is a Halloween promotion from Tello that is scheduled to be available until November 1st. It is for new subscribers only.
Tello allows its subscribers to custom build their own phone plans. Subscribers can choose a data and text only plan if they wish, or a talk and text only plan. All plan combinations include free texting. There are dozens of plan options to choose from. Tello is currently highlighting 4 preconfigured plans on their website. Those plans are as follows:
- $10/month Economy Plan - 1GB 4G LTE data
- $14/month Value Plan - 2GB 4G LTE data
- $19/month Smart Plan - 4GB 4G LTE data
- $39 Data - 12GB 4G LTE data
The plans just described all include unlimited talk, text, and data with the specified amount of data at 4G LTE data speeds before throttling to 64Kbps. They also include unlimited calling to Mexico, Canada, and China. Tethering is included and customers can use all of their plan's data for mobile hotspot if they so choose.
Customers looking to take Tello up on their offer must have a phone that is compatible with the Sprint network. The phone must be either manufacturer unlocked or if purchased from Sprint free from all financial obligations and no longer be under contract. If you are unsure if your phone is compatible with Tello, you can check compatibility by using Tello's IMEI checker. Customers who need to buy a phone can choose from a small selection of options that are available in the Tello Mobile phone store.
