Tello were kind enough to give me a $10 paygo credit even though my port completed last week.

Thanks Tello! Looking forward to being with you a long time!

Hint: Most R+ people moving to Tello are price sensitive. They'll be happy with $5 credit! Hopefully I've just saved you 80000 x $5 = $400,000!

Thank alexdm from Tello. Apparently, he's posting on this forum pretending to be a customer. haha

I can't try it again until my port in finishes. The first time I tried it was when I initiated the port in. I don't think I can try again until it finishes, can I?

It's been known to happen elsewhere as well. :whistle:

In any case, he is probably a customer as well, so technically not pretending to be one.

But I don't know why he didn't just announce himself as a Tello employee to begin with. That would have been a good bit of PR and shown that Tello was interested in R+ refugees.

That's what those First Command Financial Advisors (actually sales rep) claim to be. :)

Yeah, getting ousted/flagged by hungryghost as a Tello employee is definitely a huge embarrassment for the company. Plus, makes me have second thoughts about the company. I'm serious.

What happened with alexdm?

He posted the $10 code and I passed it onto ringplus social. Lots of people benefitted.

He didn't claim not to be an employee as far as I recall but maybe some posts were deleted?

Sad thing is Tello doesn't need to do anything like that as there are thousands with them now from ringplus and their rates are hard to beat. Reasonable promos too.

the cellnuvo ceo made an appearance here and seems like a striaghtforward guy. Refreshing. I have 560 minutes for free in less than a week - would have cost nearly $20 at Tello. Seems to be the new r+ for those wanting free service!

Really? A single lapse in judgement from a single employee shakes your confidence in an entire company that much?

It's a wonder you made it through a month with R+.

They did the same for me a couple days ago and told me they were doing it as a courtesy:
social.ringplus.net/discussion/comment/145994/#Comment_145994

But yesterday, the coupon started working directly on existing paygo accounts with no need to contact Tello.
social.ringplus.net/discussion/comment/146491/#Comment_146491

The coupon also worked to start a new paygo line with a BYOD device a couple days ago, not a ported device.
And it worked directly on Friday to apply a paygo balance to an exiting "plan" that had a $0 balance.

So in the end, it was 100% successful everywhere I wanted it. Thank you, Tello!

Oh, OK, if your port is in progress, then that is true. When I tried to use the coupon with a port-in, it went to "failed" immediately. I didn't care about the number, and I didn't want to wait to see if the port would complete later, so I canceled the line on R+, created a new Tello account, and started a new line on Tello using the canceled phone as a BYOD device and got a new number. The coupon allowed me to start a $10 paygo balance - no credit card needed yet because $0 was due.

Hopefully when your port completes, the coupon will still work.
