Frequently Asked Questions

You can make free calls to 60+ countries, or more exactly, to over 90 international destinations (landlines and mobiles) with your domestic plan. Once you finish your call, we'll deduct the number of minutes used from your phone plan balance.
The only plans that don't include free international calls are data-only plans. If you don't have a plan, you can also use Pay As You Go - available for both international calls and texts.
As long as you have a plan that includes minutes, the calls to the 60+ countries will be deducted from your available minute balance. If you call any other destination than the ones included in this list, you will have to purchase Pay As You Go balance and pay/minute for the calls you make.
Dialing with Tello is no different than any other wireless service. To make a national call, you need to dial the area code + local number. For international calls, the number should be dialed like this: 011 + country code + destination number.
When calling through our free App, regardless of where you are located, always add the country code of the number you are calling to, whether your call is to the USA or any other country". The country code for the USA & Canada is "1".
The free international calls can be used directly from your phone's dialer (direct calling) or from My Tello app.
We are constantly reviewing and extending our list of free destinations, but meanwhile you can use Pay As You Go Credit in addition to your plan and make cheap international calls using prepaid minutes. Check our international rates.
