I've been really impressed with Tello. The phone works great, the customer service has gone to lengths to help me transition to Tello, and the cost is difficult, if not impossible, to beat! I definitely do not regret going with Tello. Highly recommended!
I love Tello but I only have one problem with the carrier which is that they use the Sprint (I guess T-Mobile now) network which isn't nearly as good of coverage as AT&T or Verizon. Most of the time I'm fine but if I'm in a rural area I get no reception.
Super pleased with what Tello is doing. There are times where I hit a bad spot and get no service, but overall I tend to get good service for a super low price.
