It is time for a class action law suit against Consumer Cellular (CC). Case in point- Purchased iPhone one day under 45 day "100% satisfation Guarantee". Hardware did not work. Followed all suggestions of CC's tech reps. No joy. So returned phone and cancelled contrct the next day. Received my initial payment back in full from store. Received cancellation Code and acknowlwdgement that phone was returned and that contract was cancelled. ... Read more

Got a cell phone with Consumer Cellular and cancelled it within first month. Costumer Service conveniently the lost notes on the cancellation within the first month and only kept notes of my second cancellation the second time. Reason for cancellation was because only calls and texts I received were from collection agencies and scorned lovers for the *** who had the number before me. Who need this ***. They are charging excessive fees for a... Read more

Tried them using a byod, found a better plan. Inserted the new sim and WOAH!! my previously unlocked phone is locked. Says they: "We won't unlock your phone because you did not keep your service active for 6 months. No where on the order page does it state this. Do they think this is going to promote customer loyalty? Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. I'd rather use my phone as a hockey puck then go back to these... Read more

I'll go without phone service before I use ATT or Verizon again. CC is great. Sure you suffer using big guy towers but there is no getting away from that in this industry. It's not for people who need lots of data. It's a phone service, as in making and receiving phone calls. No contract, change my plan monthly if I need a little more data for playing pandora or minutes to wait on hold with one of the other great american companies or... Read more

MOST DISHONEST COMPANY OUT THERE!! Folks, they bill you every 22 days!! You're not getting any special deal! I asked that I be billed on the 3rd to be sure my account had money and instead they bill on the 2nd and overdraft my account. I cancelled my account and they PRICE GAUGED me & made up some crazy amount for cancelling! Also they FORCE you to buy their phones as most ARE NOT compatible with them.LESSON LEARNED! STAY AWAY from this really... Read more

Consumer Cellular offered fairly cheap rates though flat out lied to me & my family. We set up 4 iPhones with them. They said we get 4 GB of data PER PHONE. I reiterated: "So we get 16 GB per month, total?" They said yes. I asked again because it did not seem right; at $50/phone per month, that sounded great. Two employees separately assured me I would have 16 GB total. Two weeks into my plan (which, by the way, is not monthly, but is actually... Read more

Well well well, another person who trusted CC to support AT&T phones that had been used with AT&T lines on CC service as they used to promise in their ads! I too was suckered in by this and there was NO disclaimer that at any point in the future they would withdraw support for the Rugby III or any other AT&T phone. I also paid for a text/data package but was denied most of the data that the Rugby offers on the phone, only being able to send... Read more

June 2016 To say that this is getting old in not doing the situation justice! I am utterly disgusted when 80% of the time when I try to use my cell phone it in "emergency calls only!!!! Just a few minutes ago my phone was in "emergency calls only" mode AGAIN and my wife's phone sitting 6 inches away has service. We both have Samsung Rugby phones, hers is an older model and mine is a Rugby III. I'm tired of seeing the reply that "we'll send... Read more

This carrier slammed me from original carrier with number transfer BEFORE permission was given to change carrier (timing required). A third carrier had to be gone to with a new number for interim service, and, then, a new carrier was contracted with another new number. STAY AWAY FROM THIS CARRIER!!! Two billings generated (and claims will be made if reported unpaid) for service that was never engaged and confirmed by what vendor indicated was... Read more

I have had Consumer Cellular for the past five years. When they were struggling to build their business platform, they were unquestionably the best. My opinion of them in the past week has come to a screeching halt. My SIM card quit, I spent 35 minutes on the phone going through resets, including a master reset which wiped out all my photos. FINALLY, they agreed to send me a new SIM card and was assured it would probably be there on a Saturday,... Read more
