    Cheapest MVNO for porting temporarily before GV?

    Number Barn is a class act among companies specializing in short or long term number parking. However, it is a VoIP provider rather than a MVNO, hence, Google Voice will not port numbers in from Number Barn. Ting is a MVNO class act. With an old Sprint phone or by buying a GSM SIM Card, you...

    AT&T Would like to unlock AT&T LG Neon Plus (LMX320AM8AAG4BLY)

    Good day! I recently purchased an AT&T LG Neon Plus phone from Walmart for $69.00. It's a great cheap phone that I'm using with an AT&T MVNO SIM Card, but I would like to use it with a T-Mobile SIM Card, instead. Before opening the box it came in, tried the AT&T unlock web page. The first...

    The following reply to my inquiry of Tello C.S. about the same, may clarify it for you and others in the same boat: Because it took me a few tries to receive an answer to what I was actually asking, rather than what the C.S.R. wanted to answer, I believe that it came from an experienced C.S.R.

    Hi, Maru. My reckoning of $5 + 0.21 taxes/surcharges yields $5.21, rather than $6.21. Are you missing a buck somewhere?

    Forget about it! This is my quote for the above plan: However, the 500MB data only for $5.00 plan has not taxes or nuisance fees added: Guess which plan I'm going with? :) As they say, look before you leap.

    Tello - Credit Expiration

    Interesting, there is no such cancellation message on my account's web portal. Last week, I inquired of Tello C.S. about my PayGo credit expiration and receive the following reply: In the next couple of days, I'm either going to add the $5.00 100 Minutes/Free Text plan or port the number out...

    Porting from landline (Numberbarn)

    I have ported numbers from NumberBarn to both the T-Mobile and Sprint sides of Ting. Porting to the T-Mobile side was not different than porting from a cellular carrier (right away). Porting to the Sprint side took about five days (blame Sprint). Before you give-up, check you number on the...

    Hello, comintel. I'm afraid that you are in that famous river in Egypt. :) Wishful thinking is just that and doesn't accomplish anything (except, maybe, it makes the thinker feel better). Unless a Tello subscriber wants to go on a Tello monthly plan (or pay Tello $80.00 each year for...

    Tello - Credit Expiration

    With all due respect, that's an insane way to try to save a couple of bucks. The last (and only) pre-9/10 top-up for my one remaining Tello line expires in early December. By the end of November, I'll have moved the line elsewhere, probably away from Sprint (it's on an old $20.00 FP phone...

    Good day. Tello's new T.O.S. have been confirmed by Tello's Reddit representative here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Tello/comments/d4hd5h/tello_now_requires_top_up_to_maintain_balance/f0ri3aq/ Happy Friday.

    You may want to give it another try, if interested. I just logged-in with my FP Sprint credentials, plugged-in information for a Sprint phone purchased from FP and the following plans popped-up: Plan Minutes Text Data $3 /30 days 200 500...

    Tello - Credit Expiration

    Hi, Boz. You didn't miss much. I setup my forgotten FP number with the RP $3.00 deal (its actually $3.01). Regrettably, texting never worked. After speaking to four different clueless Tech. Support persons and been promised by each that it would be taken care of within 24 hours, but wasn't...

    Tello - Credit Expiration

    Except PagePlus is a Tracfone company with all that that entails. Having lost most of my substantial TF balances as reported here: https://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php/1906214-Does-TracFone-provision-Puerto-Rico-numbers I would never do business with TF or any of its affiliated...

    Tello - Credit Expiration

    Yes, apparently someone at Tello read this thread or the Reddit thread and changed the effective date to last week. Regrettably, whether the old date was not changed until last night or this morning inadvertently, the damage is done and Tello's reputation as a customer friendly company has been...

    Tello - Credit Expiration

    Until this past Sunday, I had almost exactly the same Tello set-up as you, except that the little-used business number belongs to a dear lady friend who's not my wife. In order to ensure that my friend's number wasn't lost as a result of Tello's new T.O.S., I ported-out my friend's number as...

    Tello - Credit Expiration

    Good catch. I perused the Reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/Tello/comments/d4hd5h/tello_now_requires_top_up_to_maintain_balance/ I'm not going to rehash comments I read there on this forum. However, if it turns out that the new policy date was intentionally back-dated to 2017, I would...

    Tello - Credit Expiration

    Well, for a couple of minutes I thought I found the provider myself in Pix Wireless: https://pixwireless.com/activation/yellow/activation/plan (In denominations from $5.00 to $100.00) Then comes the kicker: It was just too good to be true. I suppose that the $5.00 plan could be used as the...

    Tello - Credit Expiration

    You're welcome. Since I was (and still am) safekeeping the number I ported-out of Tello yesterday for a friend, I couldn't "let sleeping dogs lie" and risk losing the friend's number as well as disappointing her. Losing the number in my other Tello account would not be a tragedy. Hence, I'll...

    Done. Received the same answer as was quoted by thriftybill from the help pages. Thank you, Bill. Since ninety days were up on one of my two accounts, and the number was a keeper, already ported the DID to Ting's FP offering (still had some Ting credit left). Hopefully, in the next thirty...

    FreedomPop has been sold to Red Pocket

    I would defer to comintel's reply, but, I believe it would go away. Also, you could presently write to <FreedomPop@ting.com> and request a cancellation. Be sure to include as much information about your acccount as possible. Good luck.
