See how Tello is helping families save & enjoy more
“Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship.” — Benjamin Franklin. These words seem to be more real than ever, especially in a busy household of our days. Tello Mobile has made it its mission to help families across the US have a better grasp on their budgets, save more every month and put an end to spending for what they don’t need.
Here’s how Tello is helping families save & enjoy more, regardless of the major issue parents are facing, from choosing the right plan for their kid to his very first phone, all while getting more value for money. A parent’s guide to surviving the teen years must include patience, trust and great choices, especially when it comes to your children’s needs.
Fact: Seemingly little expenses like your phone bill can have a big effect on our personal finances.
The small things add up, kids’ needs keep piling on and suddenly, the situation gets out of hand. That especially happens when you’re paying for more than what you and your family use.
Tello Tip: Track your spending and see where you can adjust
See how much you’re actually using in terms of minutes, text and data every month and think about what your other family members can use. At Tello, you can check your available balance, remaining minutes, text & gigs of data in your Dashboard Account.
Need more? You can always choose another phone plans, upgrade or downgrade anytime, free of charge.
Real Tello Customer Review: “I could not be more satisfied with Tello. I have had this service since May 2017 and continue to love it more. I have a young teenager and I can handle all billing and add ons right thru the app. Just when I thought I had the best plan and it couldn’t be better they dropped the price and added more perks, bought 5gb and got 5 free woohoo!!!!!!!” — Mank, 15 Nov 2017
Fact: A lot of families are still overpaying for their wireless service
Many people are stuck in contracts, having pricy predefined phone plans with combos they do not even need or want.
Tello to the rescue: We’ve just dropped our prices with up to 35%!
That means that more than 55% of our current customers are saving extra from now on! For instance, if you want a plan including unlimited minutes & text plus 2GB of data, you can have it now at only $19/mo., instead of $25.
Compare the new Tello phone plans prices with your current carrier and feel the savings! It’s the perfect timing to make a change for the better!
Real Tello Customer Review: “I have been so incredibly pleased with Tello. Their plan options are economical and the service (both cell service and customer service) is excellent. Both my teen daughters have Tello and I’ve noticed that their phones often have reception when my phone (AT&T network phone provided by work) does not.” — Momof2, 25 Feb 2018
Fact: Many parents struggle with choosing their kids’ perfect phone plan
Juggling budgets, teens’ constantly changing desires and parents’ need to have the last word in these decisions can be quite the balancing act for most families.
Tello Tip: Build a custom plan for your kid
Zooming into Tello’s biggest strengths: you can choose the amount of minutes, text and data according to your children’s age and needs. You can start safe, with a talk & text only plan and then upgrade as you go along.
See how this customer made the best choice for his preteen daughter:
Real Tello Customer Review: “Tello is great! About a year ago I decided that my preteen daughter needed a cell phone so I could be in touch with her wherever she was. Tello has been wonderful. I am saving so much $$$ and my daughter has never had an issue with cell service. Highly recommended!” — Stephanie Seonbuchner, 9 March 2018
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.
Real Tello Customer Review: “I signed up with Tello in May 2017 when my10-year-oldd daughter received her cell phone for her birthday. I searched long and hard for an affordable service provider, as she would primarily be texting, almost always connected to Wi-Fi, and using voice only for emergencies. Who wants to pay $50 a month for that?? Tello’s ability to build your own package at a rate you can afford is unlike anything that I have seen on the market. In addition, we have had no issue whatsoever with the quality of cell service. Plus, Tello’s customer service is top notch and their reps have efficiently answered any questions that I have had. Bottom line: You can’t go wrong!” — Heather Austin, 11 Oct 2017
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?
Real Tello Customer Review: “This has been an excellent find for an option for my son’s first phone. Great pricing and service. And most of all, unlike some big Cable companies, not only do they not raise your monthly plan, they will decrease it while adding additional capacity to your plan!” — Shane, 6 March, 2018
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:
Real Tello Customer Review: “Tello.com a lifesaver! Tello.com saved me during the most recent winter storm and power outage. We had no internet service and Tello’s free tethering enabled me to work from home, order tests and medications when there was no power and no other way to communicate. Adding on extra capacity was so simple through their app, effortless and instantaneous. Thanks, Tello!” — Nutrageous!, 6 March 2018
