Here's a comparison of the new and old plan pricing:
Quote from bb182
:
For plans with data
Plan cost is the sum of these two components:
 200 MB500 MB1 GB2 GB3 GB4 GB6 GB8 GB10 GB12 GB
Old Price$7$8$9$14$19$24N/AN/A$34N/A
New PriceN/A$5$6$10N/A$15$20$25N/A$35

 100 min200 min300 min500 min∞ min
Old Price+$1+$2+$3+$4+$5
New Price+$1N/A+$2+$3+$4

For plans with no data
 100 min200 min300 min500 min∞ min
Old Price$5$7$9$10$11
New Price$5N/A$6$7$8

All plans include unlimited SMS FREE TETHER AND PHONE SWAPS .

tax and fees seems cheaper with data, the total is cheaper for me in NYC with data than voice and text only.

For Reference: Bill details showing NY taxes and fees were from April 2019, $11 Monthly Plan with Unlimited Min/Text & No Data. Taxes and Fees were nearly $4 extra.

Sprint MVNO now offers these plans at a discount:

$8 per month plan - includes unlimited talk and text
$10 per month plan - includes unlimited talk, text, and 1GB of data (previously $14 per month)
$14 per month plan - includes unlimited talk, text, and 2GB of data (previously $19 per month)
$19 per month plan - includes unlimited talk, text, and 4GB of data (previously $29 per month)
$24 per month plan - includes unlimited talk, text, and 6GB of data (previously 3GB of data)
$29 per month plan - includes unlimited talk, text, and 8GB of data (previously 4GB of data)
$39 per month plan - includes unlimited talk, text, and 12GB of data (previously 10GB of data)

PAY AS YOU GO too, never expires with occasional call every two months. https://tello.com/rates/pay_as_you_go


Freeup UNLIMITED TEXT & CALLING TO US, CAN & MEX+ 1GB $15
phones are GMS much better to chose than tellos
$5 more @ freeup

Starting June 11, Tello Mobile's phone plans get even more affordable and appealing to budget-wise customers aka smart people who know that hard worked money is better spent on other things, and not wireless. With this new plans' refresh, the era of overpriced wireless is over!
💭 What does that mean for Tello's Existing Customers?
In a nutshell, more BANG for their buck! We love numbers, so here you have a cool breakdown:
85% of our customers get a plan upgrade (they get more minutes, more gigs or both added to their current phone plan for the exact same cost per month – YAY)
24% get the best out of both worlds (they benefit from a plan upgrade as well as of the price decrease – WOW)
All these lovely changes will happen at the next billing cycle and can be seen in the customers' account. One can always make the upgrade sooner, before the billing date, at no extra cost, how cool is that?
💭 What does that mean for Tello's Newcomers?
New lower prices and unexpected savings on your phone bill once you make the switch!
HIGHER DATA ALLOTMENTS & BIGGER SAVINGS WITH PRICES THAT GO DOWN BY 35%
Tons of happy customers already know that Tello is a competitive and incredibly generous wireless provider that shares people's love for savings. That is why we slashed plan prices to fit every budget. Get this: you can have 1GB plus unlimited talk & text for just $10/mo (used to be $14/mo.), 2GB plus unlimited talk & text for $14 (was $19/mo.).

According to ABC the average American spends about $1,000 a year on his cell phone bill. Analysts estimate that 80% of American are paying service providers $200 a year for excess minutes, messages, and data. That adds up to over $52 billion of wireless waste a year!
These new price changes mean that 85% of existing Tello customers get more in their phone plan for the exact same price. Our way of saying thanks for being in the Tello family. Here's how the prices line up in all the possible combinations:
📌 How Tello Mobile Beats the big 4 & other MVNOs at Customer Satisfaction
SAVING MONEY ON YOUR PHONE BILL DOESN'T MEAN HAVING TO SACRIFICE ON DATA
Bargain hunters & heavy data consumers alike can benefit from Tello's unmatched flexibility. The possibility to build your own plan goes beyond dollars and cents. It's the ultimate perk of an affordable provider.
At Tello, you can have talk & text only plans and data exclusive plans. You are in charge of your phone bill, usage, as well as ramping up or down your cell phone, free of charge.
The second piece of good news, besides the price drop, is related to some new juicy entries. Tello's already attractive array of data plans welcomes 3 new entries that can come in any plan combination you want:
6GB
8GB
12GB
🥑 Best Phone Plans for Millennials: Time for your very own cell phone plan!
A LOW-COST CARRIER WITH ALL THE BIG PERKS
⛱️ No contract, No fees, No Problem
All of Tello's plans are prepaid, which means you can cancel at any time with zero termination fees. You can also bring your own phone to use with Tello, just check to see if it's compatible and enrol it with a Tello plan without any activation fees.
💎 A cheaper, better cell plan
A huge chunk of our monthly budget goes on our cell phones. In most cases, we stick to that same old plan without knowing you're actually paying for more than we use. With a Sprint MVNO, like Tello, you get the same coverage and speed like a big carrier, minus the huge cost.
🙌 Outstanding customer support
Tello's Human Customer Service Team is impressive. So say more than 4.9k unbiased reviews on TrustPilot.com.
📲 Phones – Buy New or Bring Your Own
If your device is Sprint compatible, unlocked and ready for savings, it's perfect to join Tello. You can check compatibility here. If you're looking for a new phone, we have a great selection of both new & refurbished devices to choose from.
🔆 Simple Plan Management
You have the ability to manage your account from our app or website. Switch phones, switch sims, add more data, change your plan or even turn off text messages right from the account dashboard. You can also block your phone number if you lose your phone.
🏈 Free Tethering
We believe the data you pay for should be used in any way you see fit so they included tethering from your phone at no extra charge!
📌 Get Started With Tello
A lot of useless words when all you needed to post was:

Get this: you can have 1GB plus unlimited talk & text for just $10/mo (used to be $14/mo.), 2GB plus unlimited talk & text for $14 (was $19/mo.).

Thumbs up. No idea why it got so many thumbs down. Can't beat this price.If Sprint is good in your area, great cheap plans. It also might help to edit the tite to include something like Unlimited T&T/1GB ($10), 2 GB($14) and so on.

very competitive with the red pocket deal and no year long commitment, that's a long time in MVNO town. Don't forget about $10 referrals!

Does Tello charge extra for taxes/fees on monthly plans?
Edit - Looks like they don't, just wanted to verify. I still have prepaid cash left but for monthly plan that's pretty good.

Do they have a coverage map? All I could find was an address checker, which is useless. We have sprint direct now and have coverage everywhere, but that includes roaming. Guessing this is native or restricted sprint bring am mvno.
