Tello is a prepaid cell phone carrier that offers Pay As You Go wireless plans. Tello Pay As You Go plans allow you to select the dollar amount of credit you want on your SIM card, and then minutes, texts, and data are deducted from your card at a rate of 3¢ per minute, 1¢ per text, and 2¢ per MB of data. All incoming and outgoing texts and calls are deducted from your account.

The plan will last for as long as it has a balance on the SIM card, or if your account has no usage activity for 6 months. You can recharge your account whenever you want with a minimum of $5.
