How about an all-in-one phone plan that has international calls included by default?
Looking for the best US-based phone plan with international minutes included? Look no further than your Tello phone plan! Not a Telloer yet? You will be after knowing about all the built-in perks that come with every plan! TRUST!
Tello plan minutes work for both domestic & international calls. No extra fees, no add-on
That means that if you have a Tello plan that includes minutes, you can use those very minutes to call within the US, but also to make calls & texts to 🔆 more than 60 countries worldwide 🔆.
The minutes will be deducted from your account balance, so you’ll never have to pay extra for calling internationally from the US, provided that your destination is included for free in our list. For the ones that cannot be found here, you’ll still get discounted calling rates with Tello Pay as You Go Credit.
How does international calling from the US work with Tello? 🌎
Couldn’t be easier: Get a Tello Plan and enjoy unlimited long-distance calls from the US to landline phones & mobiles in over 60 countries. There’s no more need to buy a calling card. Or to get an add-on to your plan. No bolt-on, no extra cost, no surprise charges at the end of the month.
Have friends and family abroad? Just give them a call! Or text like there’s no tomorrow. No fuss.
⚡ Disclaimer: Since Tello phone plans can come with unlimited international minutes included, depending on your plan combo, they are the best fit for big, chatty, loud, tight-knitted families from all over the world. You know who you are!
You can chat all day long with your favorite cousin or brother-in-law. You can call them just to say “hi”, and not only for the holidays or birthdays. You don’t have to set up anything in your Tello account in order to get international long-distance service. You just have to dial. Quick, convenient!
Check to see if your destination is on our list of free countries included in any Tello minutes plan. If you can’t find it there, remember that Tello’s minute-by-minute rates are still a bargain for international calling, starting at 1 cent per minute. Ready, Set, Call!
If you’re a frequent traveler, you can still use Tello when abroad. Wi-Fi Calling makes everything possible!
So, in addition to the 60+ international countries added to Tello phone plans, you also get Wi-Fi Calling. You can still use Tello to call your mom and let her know that you landed safely or text old college friends when you’re in for a visit. Yup, Wi-Fi is that on-the-go lifesaver that makes things so much easier.
Tello Wi-Fi Calling & Texting has no additional charge. It’s simply taken from your existing plan balance or your Pay As You Go balance. For example, if you receive any calls (no matter where from) or if you call the US or any of the 60+ included international destinations, then the minutes of those calls will be deducted from your minutes’ plan balance. If, on the other hand, you call an international destination that is not included in our plans, then it will be charged from your Pay As You Go balance if you have one. The same logic applies to Wi-Fi Text.

💬 Recap: Tello Mobile = Super affordable plans + International calls + Wi-Fi Calling. All in one place.
The best part? It takes less than two minutes to get started. There’s a Tello plan for every need. The international calling options are included from the get-go. So is Wi-Fi Calling. Oh, and the Free Hotspot. So, it’s pretty easy to see where all the wireless savings come from. No wonder we got a great rep.
I really love the Tello service. The international call quality is so good. I was using Google voice to make an international call so far but I just transferred my main number to Tello (I am using Tello for the two last years as back up but now I transferred my main number from Google voice to Tello) and started using it for the international call which is free (vs 1cent on GV) and call quality was much better.
Also transferring from GV to Tello was really fast (I was shocked that the transfer just took 5 minutes. After placing the request, I got the email in 5 min that the number is ported) so really smooth process.
The only thing which I don’t like about Tello is the speed of data after the balance is over. It is lower than 2G speed and completely unusable but that is the only thing that is not good compared to other carriers.
Is there a phone number you need to call first to call internationally or just dial the country code and then the phone number?
Hi, Rachael, here are the steps to dial an international destination:
From the Tello Dialpad:
Dial “+” then the “country code” then “area code” then “phone number” OR
Dial “011” then the “country code” then “area code” then “phone number”
From the “My Tello” App
Dial the destination number from the App keypad (always include country code) or choose from your phone “Contacts” tab (ensure the number is already saved in international format).
