BTW, I haven't received anything yet. Any moment now...
I am wondering the same. Hopefully there is a brave soul out there willing to test this. I am also curious if a device swap order results in extension. Maybe so, since possible to also port in number during device swap and I doubt Tello would expire a line soon after porting in.

I'll test it for sure. I have a small PAYGO balance on both of my lines. I won't sign up for a monthly plan. I'll ride it out and see how long it lasts!

I was curious too and was ready to swap out and in but thankfully Isamorph, KentE, and rawlek helped me realize my grandfathered Tello phones won't activate again so Operation Phone-swap never got off the ground!
I haven't received the email on either of 2 PayGo accounts-- one I was planning on letting expire (low balance): and one with a higher balance that I'd like to salvage some way, but so far, Tello has declined to issue a refund for.
I'll try a phone swap on one or the other, but (personally) I don't expect it to help.

I remember someone saying he made a complaint to the FCC because Tello wasn't giving him a refund and he got his refund.
I remember a post on the Hofo forum mentioning the FCC refund issue.
Interesting that Tello, in addition to mentioning Tello would give Paygo users plenty of notice before expiring accounts, also said, if I'm not mistaken, it would look at accounts individually on a case by case basis, which is unusual and instills uncertainty. Yet, I'm guessing Tello's TOS probably has an "at Tello's discretion" phrase in it which would allow appraising individual user accounts as it sees fit.
"- Do I get a refund? Yes. Although every account is unique, anything that was paid for will be refunded, no questions asked.
- If you will get a refund will you be losing your phone number? Yes. You’ll be asked if you want to port out the number and, if not, your number will be expired, but we are not wiping any numbers off without people knowing about it.
- Using remaining PAYG credit to swap to a plan? This is a great suggestion, but it will depend on each case."
