    Would recommend

    Friend recommended me tello and I'm glad they did. Plans are cheap,and they're good

    Budget friendly with a great value

    A great service. Very low pricing. Good calls.

    Tello is forcing me to buy a new phone.

    I have Sprint CDMA and Tello no longer supports it so they are forcing me to buy a new phone. I ordered one and they sent me the wrong one. It has been a nightmare (2+ hours chatting, emailing, etc) working out getting their phone returned. The CS rep dropped the chat without sending a label. Now am waiting for an email response. In CS hell because of their mistake. Was a h

    Low prices

    And that's not a bad thing. I'm able to have a burner phone for my business because of Tello. The calls and texts come in just fine too. Really satisfied with Tello and its plans.

    A pleasant change of pace

    I really mean it when I say I love Tello. These guys are so different compared to Verizon. The reps are very friendly and they're always helpful. There are no hidden costs either. No strings attached. I would recommend Tello to anyone and everyone.

    Low fees for high quality

    Really like Tello. Cheap with friendly customer service and high quality calling.

    No help any more,

    Just had to buy new phone to upgrade. it won't activate even with another new sim card. No response to any questions anymore. No working phone- nothing.

    Easy on the wallet

    Very inexpensive and good coverage. Recommended.

    Tello has great prices and it's very nice to use

    Very happy with Tello!

    Used for 6 months

    And so far I like the service. Customer service has been exceptional!
