Tello Mobile Giving $17.76 Discount to New Customers

tello-mobile-independence-day-promotion
Independence Day is tomorrow and just in time for the holiday, Tello has launched a new promotion for its customers.

Earlier today, the MVNO (operating under Sprint's network) announced that new customers who purchase a plan will be entitled to receive a discount of $17.76 on any plan they buy.

But what's so peculiar about the $17.76 discount? Well, it's the same year that the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the United States, 1776.

This promotion does not have a minimum order requirement so you can easily customize a plan that best suits you. A good thing about Tello is that it lets you custom build your own phone plan so you don't have to worry about overpaying for a feature you won't be using at all.

With the promotion in place, you can get the discount on your plan purchase. If you pick a plan that costs less than $17.76, that means you get a free month of service.

Tello's Independence Day promotion runs from July 4-6 and is available exclusively for new customers.

  1. It's like Groundhog Day, with all these little Tello holiday promotions. Sure, a credit about equal to the first month of service cost is nice.

    But if you're willing to be on the Sprint network, you may as well get an entire year for free direct from Sprint itself.

  2. Hard to justify any Sprint MVNO when the company itself is giving away 1-year free. Tello unfortunately doesn't distinguish itself from other nickel-and-dime MVNOs. They don't offer Wifi Calling, Visual Voicemail, Roaming Options, International Options, Rollover, or Multi-Line Plans. For low-usage there are so many better options like RedPocket, Tracfone, or Xfinity Mobile.

    1. "For low-usage there are so many better options like RedPocket, Tracfone, or Xfinity Mobile."

      I haven't found better for my super low usage. Any Slime owned brand is a non-starter for me. Tello $10 pay as you go lasts me 9-11 months. Yes my use is close to "glovebox" level but it is what it is & works great for me. I wouldn't choose a Sprint native only MVNO as a glovebox though.

    2. 1 yr. Sprint free BYOD would cost me more in fees & taxes ($57.12) than my use on Tello pay go (~$17). Of course the coverage would be WAY better w/Sprint (roaming) since Tello is native Sprint only which works fine for me.

    3. We pay $2/month for Xfinity By the Gig with Unlimited TnT and 100MB/month mobile data included. I also have a Tello pay-go line for my rugged flip phone. It's not an either-or decision; at $2/month Xfinity, you can afford both.
      Our 'free' Sprint BYD plan cost $3.81/month, but with unlimited data and 10GB LTE hotspot, I didn't complain about that either.

    4. That $2/mo. is only for those in Comcast territory & who have some other service with them so that is useless to me & many others. Other than roaming off Sprint native network which might come in handy, maybe, sometime, someday (native Sprint works fine for me) I have 0 need or use for what the BYOD free year offers, don't need it so why would I pay over 3x what I pay for Telli pay go? I won't.

    5. 30M people have Xfinity service, and many more could get it and the $2 mobile plan. Folks can even cancel a new broadband order and pay an extra $10/month for By the Gig. It's worth it for people who actually use their phones.

    6. "30M people have Xfinity service"
      Great for them. Last I looked USA pop. is closing in on 330 million. Lots of people who use their phones not covered. Extra $2/mo. may be worth it if you have no choice other than Comcsat for high speed internet and are paying them already. Better options than paying $12++ though (for people who use their phones).

    7. That's 30 million *households* with Comcast Internet service *PLUS* another 25 million *households* with Spectrum (TWC-Charter-Brighthouse) Internet service.

      (Spectrum is basically copying the Comcast plan and will go BYOD soon.)

      So quite soon that will be 55 million households in the US who could be on the basic Verizon-towers mobile plan.

      The Census Bureau says the average household size is 2.58 people.

      So, roughly 140 million Americans will be in households with Comcast or Spectrum Internet installed and with access to the plan.

    8. Anon OP:

      "They don't offer Wifi Calling, Visual Voicemail, Roaming Options, International Options, Rollover, or Multi-Line Plans."

      Tello offers a version of WiFi Calling, using their VoIP app. It's not true WiFi calling, but it's an option. Just like when people use Google Hangouts/Voice.

      Visual Voicemail works on iPhone. I don't know how they do it since they're not listed on Apple's list of official carrier support. Visual Voicemail requires a data subscription. It does not work over WiFi.

      International options: You can send and receive calls and texts to many countries outside the United States (rates vary). You need a pay-as-you-go balance to take advantage of it. They do not support international roaming when outside the United States (but their VoIP app works on WiFi worldwide).

      Rollover: Tello offers rollover, but only if you manually renew your monthly plan. This will rollover unused talk minutes and unused high speed data. Any amount of talk minutes provides unlimited texting, so no traditional rollover there.

      Multi-line plans: You're right there. I don't understand why that seems to be so important to readers of this site. One seems to be perfectly able to manage separate accounts for banks, utilities, retailers. But a cell provider without multi-line plans? Now they've crossed a red line there!

    9. Your numbers are conservative. Tens of millions more people COULD subscribe to Xfinity and Charter, folks who don't now. And now they have a good reason to pick those ISPs.

  3. Tello does have features that distinguish it from the bulk of MVNOs. The first is exceptional customer service that has earned it a 5-star rating on TrustPilot.
    No WiFi Calling, but outoing VoIP (over WiFi) is available through the Tello app.
    A great self-service dashboard, fallback unlimited 2G, no-fee porting or device swaps, and very competitive rates for low-volume users don't hurt either.

  4. Cool, if only in the spirit of the holiday.

  5. Why do all of these threads have to be Sprint bashing? If it doesn't work for you then stfu and move along!

  6. My bro uses tello and $10 last him almost one year. I had him on H2O's pay as you go plan and that cost $40 a year due to the 3 month expiration date. Tello is awesome for super low usage and if sprint coverage works for you.

    1. Ditto here. About $10 PYG refill ($11.20) lasts a looong time for my low voice usage and a little more texts. I also connect to data for emergency look up.
