With all the romance wrapped around the month of February, we must agree with the overall season anthem: all you need is love. But savings won’t hurt, right? That’s what we thought when we designed this special deal: ✨ 50% OFF any phone plan, for 3 months in a row + FREE SIM ✨ ! Sweeeet!
We’ve prepared a little (ok, big) discount to help you keep those New Year resolutions about saving more money this year, or at least to make up for all the splurging you did for Valentine’s Day.
We want to shave 50% off your phone bill for the first 3 months. Why? Because bargains are the best. Because lowering your phone bill means you’ll be ballin’ on a budget. Because there’s nothing better than a welcome offer to Tello!
Who is the 50% OFF deal for?
People who want a love/love relationship with their wireless service and no compromises. No contracts. And no extra fees. Aka all that is naturally provided by Tello Mobile.
Tello newcomers are welcomed with this awesome deal until March 31, 2021. Also, existing customers can take advantage of it by adding a new line to their account in no time.
⚡ Warning: this deal contains mind-blowing savings which could be triggering to some readers that are not used to getting this much bang for their buck.
Let’s crunch the numbers:
👉 The tiny prices are what you pay for 3 months in a row. The key is to choose a phone plan of your liking – with any combination of data and/or minutes – and keep it for the next 3 months in order to keep the discount.
👉 The 50% discount will be seen directly on the checkout page after you add a phone and the free SIM to your favourite phone plan combination.
Oh, yeah, a FREE GSM SIM is included in the savings’ package.
You can bring your own compatible phone, keep your number & get a free GSM SIM from us if you sign up to Tello until March 31. Any newcomer needs a SIM from us in order to join, but instead of charging you the regular $9.99, we’re throwing it in the deal mix, for absolutely zero extra cash. It’s that SIMple!
👉 Before you enroll, check our super reliable nationwide coverage to see how the signal is in your area.
Need a new phone with your new service? No problem!
Go to our phone selection to choose a 100% Tello compatible device that goes well with your needs & budget. Some phones have some neat discounts as well. See for yourself.

Do you pay 3 months advance and is 5GB speed available
Thanks for reaching out. No, there’s no payment in advance at Tello, not for this special promo, and not for any other services provided by us. You choose your phone plan and pay the discounted rated each month. After the first 3 months, you’ll pay the regular price, which is still pretty yummy, right? Yes, 5G is available at Tello, free of charge, as long as your device is capable of doing all that. If you’d like to bring your 5G-capable device to Tello Mobile, just make sure it’s unlocked and GSM compatible.
How much will I be charged for incoming local calls/text?
You are charged for all incoming calls. If you have an active plan, you will be charged from the plan’s balance. If you don’t have an active plan, the call will be charged from your Pay As You Go balance, according to the USA rates listed on the website here: https://tello.com/rates/pay_as_you_go, thanks!
At Tello, there is no payment in advance, so if you want this offer you have the pay the discounted amount per month. Yes, 5G speeds are available as long as your device is capable of them :), thanks!
Would I lose the 50% discount if I
1. manually renewed before the end of the month,
2. upgraded, or
Hi, Jim, thanks for reaching out. Great question :).
the magic of these types of promos is that they run automatically. You don’t have to do anything to get them and that means you shouldn’t do anything to change them, so automatic renewal is your best friend. Same goes for upgrade/downgrade: if you want the savings to stick around for the 3 months period, please don’t change your plan in any way. after the first 3 months of service, you can go up and down, as you please free of extra cost. Thanks!
“For new customers & new lines, until February 28th”
So Feb 28th is the deadline for purchase time or activation? I was hoping to buy now and activate later.
Hi & thanks for the question!
In order to benefit from the promo, you have to sign up until the deadline, and after that, you have 30 days to activate the SIM. Hope this helps, thanks!
Does Tello GSM works with eSim? I am planning to get a pixel 4a. The physical sim will have an international sim card (no other choice possible) but I would like the eSim to have Tello.
No news on the eSIMs atm, sorry, but please note that you’ll be needing a GSM SIM from us if you want to bring your phone to Tello. If you sign up until the end of March, you get it for free :D, along side the juice 50% OFF discount for any plan. Hope this helps, thanks!
Can Android tablets or iPads be activated using data only plans on Tello? I’m curious as I have been thinking about buying a tablet and would like to know beforehand.
Sure you can, as long as your tablet or iPad is GSM compatible. You can check this on our Bring Your Own Phone page, by entering the IMEI of the tablet: https://tello.com/bring_your_own_phone
If the answer is yes, you can subscribe to a data-only plan, order the GSM TELLO SIM and start using the service. And… we have some good news! We’re currently running a 50% OFF offer + FREE SIM if you subscribe by the end of March 2021.
We’ll be waiting for you!
Tello needs to state on the website for IPhone users: DO NOT switch to GSM sim card because the group text currently does not work for Iphone users on the GSM network. If Tello stated this, I would have waited to switch. Now it’s too late for me. It’s been an issue for over a month, which is unacceptable.
We’re really sorry for the inconvenience and we promise we’re doing everything we can to make this feature available to our customers as soon as possible.
Indeed the info about the group text is not available in the migration process, but you can find it in our Help Center: https://tello.com/help_center
We appreciate your feedback and we’re sorry for the inconvenience!
Thanks a lot for getting in touch!
How do you redeem the 50% offer? When you click on any plan the total due is the regular price – not discounted. Is there a promo code that I’m missing?
You don’t need any coupon or promo code. The prices are already cut by 50%.
For example, the 2GB + unlimited calls & texts:
Once you add the plan in checkout the discounted offer will apply.
If you need help, please remember you can always contact our Customer Support team.
When I click through, it says the 50% off is for 1 month, not 3, and it also charges me for a SIM card.
John, that’s because this promo is no longer available, but the good news is that we’re running a 50% OFF deal as we speak – for new lines & new customers, for all plans above $10/mo. Don’t miss it, thanks!
I was looking at the $8 plan for unlimited talk and text, no data. Is this offer only for 3 months and if so, will the charges double?
Unfortunately, this offer is from 2021, so it’s no longer available.
Please keep an eye on our latest blog posts or social media accounts and you’ll see our current offers.
