I only use it for talking and texting (in Lakewood). It works well.

I only had to use their customer service once to get a refund. I don't remember the exact response time but it wasn't long.
In my experience
You can do everything on the website.
If you do need customer service. They are very very good. Fast responsive
thanx, reception for talk and text is good ? (brooklyn)
do they have ads etc that they can price it so cheap ?
and last, have you used international calling with them ?

In my opinion talk and text is good with all carriers in NYC.

I'm assuming Sprint is looking to expand their customer base so they charge very little.

Never used international calling

I use the free calling to Canada.
Works great on Brooklyn.
No ads.
Itís plus tax
Itís cheaper if you add the 500mb data then without it , total in Brooklyn is $10.48
If you use my link , we both get $10 credit.

Tello pay as you go plan or $5 for 500mb + unlimited 2g data afterwards

Obviously depends how much you use and if you'll have good service with Sprint.

I don't think so. I'm not 100% sure though.

Tello uses sprint but many Verizon phones will work on sprint or tello. You can use an imei checker for byod on sprint's site or maybe tello site

Maybe they buy prepaid phones that have activation pins attached to them and they sell them separately?
Just found this listing

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F372729577784

Seems to be what you're saying based on picture.

Anyways the Verizon cards are now like 35. And simple mobile is like 20. Go figure.
