Independence made easy and affordable.

When my partner and I split up I had to find my own cell service quickly. As I was in college and working part-time, I knew that funds would be tight and signing up with my partner's provider would be too expensive. I couldn't believe how inexpensive Tello was... I thought there would be a catch. But there isn't a catch. I tailored the plan to what I use and pay automatically. It's all online and increasing or decreasing data amounts is easy to understand and do in a minute or less.

Excellent & Easy Service

I have been using this phone service for 8 months and am so happy with it. The customer service is quick and friendly and i love the customized plans i can create. It's also not too pricey (which is good for a college aged person like me) I get great reception most of the time as well. Definitely would recommend this service.

Excellent!

This is an amazing company- their service is excellent and I for one -a college student on a very limited income- am extremely grateful for their prepaid, flexible plans. With Tello, I’m able to have so much more. I have no idea how they manage it, but I feel so lucky to have found out about them.

I am an international student

I am an international student. It was perfect for me to find Tello! I am on the $5 plan, which allows me to call and text people if I need. Just a must have as an international. Super satisfied!

This is my first time using and paying for a phone plan, and I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. This company is reliable and the plan I built works great for my college budget.

Tello is SWEET

Tello is an awesome, cheap alternative to phone service! They even upgraded my personalized plan to include unlimited texts for free. I only pay $9 a month and I use my phone just as much as I need to (and I'm a millennial college student that is constantly on my phone.) When there is free wifi everywhere, I don't need to pay hundereds of dollars just to get unlimited data. 200 MB gets me through each month just fine. The customer service is through email but they respond extremely quickly and are very helpful, I was able to port my old phone number onto my new phone. Definitely 10/10 would recommend.
