How long do they take to port the number in?
From my experience, generally less than 24 hours. I would plan on doing it during the week and avoiding the weekend just to be safe, but you can plan on the port being finished by the next day, if not the same day.

Any suggestions on how to get a cheap SIM card that supports this deal.?
Amazon had a universal kit for $2.99, then $0.99 on sale, but it looks to be out of stock right now. Use the Tello bring your own phone checker and enter your phone IMEI to find out what model Sprint sim you need. After you know the model, you can check ebay for a used sim card, since Sprint sims can be used over and over again. Or you can buy from Tello for $10.

I have some UNused sprint sim cards but how can I know if it will work BEFORE signing up?
Use the Tello bring your own phone check, and enter your phone IMEI and the serial number off the sprint sim card you want to use (assuming it's the correct model that is needed, the checker will tell you the model you need). The checker will confirm if your phone IMEI and sim serial will work.

I've been using Tello since last year, it has been great no issues so far at all. I've been on the $6 plan - 100 minutes 500 megs. I got a month free with the referral credit they offer as well.

Seem like Tello start enforcing their 90 days no purchase policy for 'Pay As You Go' account holders.
I've just received an email that says my account will be deactivated if i don't buy anything within next 7 days. Currently i have $16 dollars balance but i didn't recharge my account for at least 4 months.

p.s. I've Tello since 2016 and it was ok until now. Seem like Tmobile / Sprint merger got em by the b..ls.
Sounds like this is your best very low usage option now considering you have a compatible phone: https://www.ebay.com/itm/133196831828

It's Tello.com.

You will get an e-mail from AX right away after you are charged $10 or more by Tello and you are registered for the AX promo.

I'm on Tello now, moved my whole family a few months back when there was a 6 month promo. I think that I'll probably go somewhere else when the period is up. I tell my friends that I think I flew too close to the sun saving a buck with Tello.

The customer service is very pleasant, but I've just had issue after issue. At first, we only received 4 out of 5 SIM cards. Then I took too long to activate, so three or four of the accounts had lapsed, and I needed to bug customer service again to apply a discount code.

There was also an issue with my wife's iPhone XR. We'd been on Project Fi, and she had used hangouts for SMS/MMS. When we moved to Tello, Hangouts stopped working, and she stopped being able to reply to group messages when there was an Android user on the conversation. I went through about a million troubleshooting steps, including doing a hard reset on the phone, and there was still no luck. I called Apple support, they walked me through the same steps (no luck). Then they conferenced in Tello support. They did some sort of network reset on their end, still no luck. Then they just gave up and said to take the phone into an Apple store.

No luck to find out what company is behind Tello.
As they provide free call to Mexico/Canada/CHINA, wondering whether this is another China Base Carrier that going to push out of State by Government

That sim card issue was lame.

I bought the sim kit at Amazon for my pixel 3a XL, it works for like 2 hours, I got about a 100 megabits down, everything was great. Then all of a sudden either the phone rejected it or they rejected it or something; I originally thought it was a deadzone at work. Nothing would work, and since the pixel has esim capability, none of the Sprint stores had the right SIM card model either. I eventually had to pay the the 10 bucks to tello to send me the exact model number of SIM card I needed; they were nice enough to discount the faster shipping, but oof it was a fiasco
Mine was working fine. But when I changed it to a different for I got error

Damn Tello! They're going to teminate all 14 of my Tello phones if I don't make another order for every phone that I want to keep active. I have about $10 of PAYGO credit on most of these. When I signed up, these were NOT the terms I agreed to.

First RingPlus, now Tello. Very disappointing.

I just got one too for the first time and I've let several phones sit for six months. The notice is worded poorly, they usually mean a billable event, text or call every three months. I don't think a plan is required, unless they changed something.

I'm not even sure which phone that number applies too. I can use the tello app on that number without the phone for a billable event. btw, wifi app calls out only.

just looked into it, I don't think that phone was used in three years. They are overdue for crackdown on glove box phones. Also looking at plans, every plan option comes with free unlimited text, even data only plans. So I could call out over wifi and get free text for $5/mo. Something about renewing early for rollover
Hey hey hey, Monkeybiz! Fancy seeing you here in a phone thread. Smilie I'm looking for some good promoz! lol

Tello announced this policy change last year that you had to have an "order" every 90 days rather than just using the service at least once every 90 days, but they didn't implement it, until, apparently now, if they indeed go through with it as per the email.

Outside email and maps, you're going to be pulling your hair out.
Agreed, but phone and text is pretty solid.
