Notes

Tello offers some of the best plans on the Sprint network. They are affordable and completely customizable. You can choose the exact amount of minutes and cellular data you need. Unlimited texting is included for free with all their plans. 

Tello also offers a mobile application. You can use the application for managing your account, and you can even use the app to make WiFi calls. Unfortunately native WiFi calling isn’t supported at this time.

Stateside International Calling

International

Family Plan

Unfortunately Tello does not offer any deals or special promotions for families. Not only that, but each line you have with Tello will need a separate account. You cannot manage multiple lines from one account at this time. Kind of a bummer, but hey, you can take advantage of the $10 referral credit!
