So I'm a little confused at the end of all the discussion about Tello PayGo needing a $20 top-up every 90 days. :(

Do we still need to make a call/send a text/use data every 90 days?

Thanks for any light folks here can shed on this.

Terms only state "order" now. No need to call/text/use data.

Thanks, mmface.
Sure hope Tello won't change those terms on us suddenly, out of the blue, like they did with the "order" fiasco!

As a practical matter, is Tello enforcing this and cancelling lines that don't meet the requirement?

If you're referring to the purchase every 90 days, no one knows, since the first deadline for enforcement would be in December.

If you're asking about usage within each 90 day period, it's a bit of a mystery, but will become irrelevant if they enforce the purchase requirement. (A purchase counts as usage.) Some have had Tello send a text to their phones to avoid violating the 90-day usage rule-- but Tello has said they're not doing this anymore.

Too soon to tell. Earliest date for PAYG lines to potentially expire is December 8, 2019.

From Georgiana_Tello, www.nthcircle.com/forum/tello/2859-tello-minimum-payg-20?start=60#40995

"- When will the 90 days begin? We start counting from your last *order* with us, or 10 Sept, whichever was last
- Will you start checking 90 days after the policy was enacted ie 8th Dec? We will not expire any numbers until 8 December"

I burned through the credit on two of my parked lines. The last one has a phone number that I care about so I'm going to put it on the cheapest plan.
