    Hello Mobile or Tello for low usage primary phone

    I'll have to look at the plan options. If I really do need more data once in a while I could buy it at the time I renew so it'll be there all month. It would make little sense to buy data a week before renewal unless I really needed it and would use it up in that space of time. Sent from my...

    Hello Mobile or Tello for low usage primary phone

    The thing about just renewing the plan when data runs out is that in my case I have the $6 a month plan that has 1 GB of data. If I was using it as my hotspot all the time, I would probably be better off just buying more data. If it becomes a data drain I might be better off changing to a plan...

    Hello Mobile or Tello for low usage primary phone

    The quote you posted is pretty self explanatory. UNLESS it means it doesn't roll over *unless* the plan is renewed early. I'll wait to add data until I renew the plan so I get the most out of it if there's no rollover on it even with early renewal. It will be a month before I find out since...

    Hello Mobile or Tello for low usage primary phone

    I've tested the hotspot on the first Tello SIM I activated, not so far on the one I just activated, but I have a different phone on the t-mobile network that I usually use for hotspot if my Wi-Fi goes down which it often does. That one (Assurance Wireless) has 6 GB data that doesn't roll over...

    Hello Mobile or Tello for low usage primary phone

    I just found the way to manually renew. It's on the dashboard page, scroll down and it has a place where it asks if you want to renew. So now I feel silly for asking but I posted that for anybody else who didn't know how. Sent from my moto e (XT2052DL) using Tapatalk

    Hello Mobile or Tello for low usage primary phone

    I'm coming up on auto renew date for one of my Tello lines. It will be on the 29th. I'm trying to figure out how to manually renew so the balance will roll over. How do I do that? Sent from my moto e (XT2052DL) using Tapatalk

    Port out info?

    I inserted one of my active Tello SIMs in the Orbic. Everything worked but hotspot. The hotspot function worked with that SIM in two other phones (Moto Pure, Moto e, both unlocked from TracFone). Sent from my moto g pure using Tapatalk

    Port out info?

    I couldn't get its hotspot ID to show on the WiFi list on my other phones. I got a message on the Orbic that I had to subscribe to the service. Sent from my moto g pure using Tapatalk

    Port out info?

    If most are not unlocked I guess I would probably be better off buying one with a Year's service from TracFone. I wanted an unlocked one to use with a different carrier. My Orbics are no go for that, too bad. The Nokia is still offered with a years service. Sent from my moto g pure using...

    Port out info?

    I just ported another TracFone number to Tello. It was SUPER fast. Activated the Tello SIM, filled the Port form, texted NTP to 611611 (TF cust service) and within minutes the Moto e had the number and was working. I like Tello for allowing SIM swapping, that way any unlocked compatible...

    Google Docs New Update Changes

    Once I do an install I'm leery of updating for fear of getting a worse version for my purposes. With apps that operate offline, those aren't as likely to have issues like I had with GDocs. I'm thinking it's because Docs operates over WiFi that something went haywire and it uninstalled...

    Google Docs New Update Changes

    Yesterday I was working with Google Docs and Drive on one of my Moto e phones, and when I closed/saved the file, I found out that Docs had disappeared off the phone. I couldn't find it under apps. I had installed an older version from the APK Mirror website that had features the new updates...

    Battery Monitor Apps

    My Moto Optimo Maxx shows a really tiny battery charge icon on the notification bar and it's impossible to read. I opened developer mode and tried to change the battery icon size by hiding the cutout notch but it didn't work. I decided to try a battery power monitor app and found two. I...

    Hello Mobile or Tello for low usage primary phone

    Because I couldn't use the Orbic's hotspot, I did a hard factory reset on one of my Moto e phones and swapped the Tello SIM to that (originally activated on an unlocked TF 2021 Moto G Pure). The hotspot checks out on the Moto e (it worked on the Pure too). Checked to see if I could port...

    How to shut down a US Mobile account

    I decided to order another Tello SIM to port an expiring TracFone number over. That was why I decided to deactivate the USM phone. Tello allows hotspotting of data and the TF plan I'm on doesn't. The cost to maintain the Tello line will be about the same as the TF line. The USM plan I was on...

    How to shut down a US Mobile account

    I restarted the USM phone and it now shows as out of service so I guess Abdul shut the line down with the validation I sent. The alternative to the code was the USM SIM card number. There was a follow up email from another CSR named Talha verifying the number was deactivated. I then removed...

    How to shut down a US Mobile account

    I emailed USM and they answered really fast with a verification code. Unfortunately I didn't see it til after it expired. The CSR explained how to turn off the auto payment and had to log in online to do it, couldn't find it in the app. It took a bit of doing to figure out even with the...

    How to shut down a US Mobile account

    I read how to deactivate a US Mobile account in their FAQs. They said it's as easy as activation. They said to turn off or remove the payment method, and it would "eventually shut down," BUT on the wallet page it said I couldn't remove a payment method from an active line. Has anyone figured...

    Harvesting Orbic two pack on eBay?

    I checked to see if one of my Orbics was unlock eligible and it says it's already unlocked. So it's my guess there's no way to use its hotspot with Tello if it's blocked. Sent from my moto g power (XT2041DL) using Tapatalk
