Tello Tip: Track your spending and see where you can adjust

Fact: Flagship smartphones are quite expensive

Yet their features are so addictive it’s no wonder both parents & teens want to get their hands on them. A new phone can be a big blow in your monthly budget, even if you find the “perfect deal”.

Tello best practice: Get a refurbished phone

When it comes to saving money or getting more for what to pay, this is the way to go. Unlike a second-hand phone, a refurbished phone from Tello has been tested, repaired if needed, comes with a warranty and it has been cleaned and made to function and look as a new one. Repairs can include anything from replacing a scratched housing on innards that still work perfectly, replacing the cracked display or adding a new battery. Same features and a price that is easy on eyes and the family budget.

Fact: Extra benefits make all the difference in wireless carriers

Usually, you have to pay extra for some benefits or features, like tethering, and that is the reason why reading the fine print of contracts has become a skill of most money-savvy parents.

Tello Freebies: tethering, unlimited text included in any plan, international calls

Every phone plan includes unlimited text & calls to Canada, Mexico & China for free. Also, you can tether away free of charge, how’s that for saving?

Not only is Tello an expert in savings, but it was there to save the day for one of our happy customers, who told us all about it:
