Tello Update April 30, 2019

Apparently, one of my Tello phone lines fall under this situation. I am not sure if the other one does, but I would think it would. Both phone lines are PAYGO (Pay As You Go I have almost $9 on one (1) line and almost $4 on the other line.

To keep the lines active, I only need to make or receive one phone call (1 minute minimum), send or receive one SMS text, or use 1 MB of data in the last 60 days which I easily achieve as I receive around 8 – 10 texts/billing cycle on each phone at $0.01/text so the lines won’t run out of money for a while. I don’t use them for talk or data. I keep them as emergency back-up as the cost to do so is very low.

Here are the details:

We’ve got some news!
Our network provider, Sprint, will be performing a network security update on April 30th for a small batch of devices. Your phone is one of them.

How will this affect me?
Calls, Text and Data will continue to work seamlessly as long as your phone is active. Still, your phone will no longer get network updates.
If you deactivate your phone the device will not be able to reactivate over the air. Even if you reactivate it, you will enable only the Call and Text services, while Data will no longer be available.

What are my options?
If you don’t want to let go to your old friend, keep your phone active and you shouldn’t experience any issue. Or, you can always renew it!
