I would not be surprised if it is, but we won't know until someone tests it or asks & gets a reply from Support.
Recall that the unlocked 4-band Visible Moto E6 activated fine on Tello Sprint, but data was not useable and the issue remained unresolved.
Forgot to mention, when I ordered the sims there was something alluding to the instructions emailed to customers, which I assume Tello assumed had been already been received by the customer before going through the online process of ordering a GSM sim. So it's likely the email instructions may have more information about the process than the process shown in my screenshot above. We'll see.
I see that the directions indicate they're using an activation code rather than the SIM # for GSM activations--like thte (old?) T-Mobile system. I don't know if they're tying the GSM replacement SIMs to a specific line, either. (Basically, this would be pre-registering a replacement SIM to a specific line.)
I imagine that Tello is intentionally slowing down the process for existing customers to prevent too much work at one time, and possibly limited supplies of the new SIMs. It does seem like many folks are anxious to make the move-- personally, Sprint service has been really good for us, and T-Mobile can be kind of sketchy in some parts of the region. I might move one line over, but will leave the others on Sprint until I see the network deteriorate. (Which pretty much matches Tello's suggested path for converting...)
It will be interesting to see whether the instructions they send you are substantially different or not. When I ordered new SIMs for my in-laws' new phones a couple of months ago while Tello was still exclusively on Sprint, the instructions (part of the email confirming the purchase) were nearly identical to those included with the SIM cards when they arrived. Maybe it will be different now, given that you are activating on the new GSM platform. Please keep us posted, and thank you for being one of our "convert pioneers" here on Nth Circle.
