Active phones & phone numbers
By using Tello service, customers can have only one active phone per account.
If a customer enrolls a new device in an account with an already active phone, the Tello service will no longer be active on the previous device enrolled in the account and will be available only on the newly enrolled one. In order to bring a family member of a friend to Tello, customers have to open a different account with a new email address.
One active phone can only be connected to one mobile number, so Tello customers can only enjoy the Tello service on one single mobile number connected to a mobile device enrolled in their account.
All sessions (Data, calls, texts) are charged directly from your balance (Plan or Pay As You Go) as soon as the records for the sessions are available from our providers. Taking this into account, delays in charges may appear.
Whatever the delay, charges will be deducted from the available balance (Plan or Pay As You Go) or, if the balance is not enough, as soon as the account balance gets updated (Plan renewal, Plan purchase or Pay As You Go Top Up).
For example, a session (Data, calls, texts) initiated in the last day of a national plan may be charged one day later and therefore, it will be billed from the balance of the newly renewed plan.
If the plan is not renewed, then the unbilled sessions (Data, calls, texts) are charged from another existing balance (Plan or Pay As You Go).
If there is no existing balance available (Plan or Pay As You Go), the unbilled sessions will be charged when the customer buys a plan or makes a top up.
