Consumer Cellular - Policy needs to be reviewed for customers who die
Account holder passed away at the end of October 2016. Had an iPhone 6S that still had a balance to be paid. As administrator of the estate attempted to return iPhone. Consumer Cellular does not accept phone returns after 45 days - no matter the reason. Account was closed but still had balance for phone. How can a dead person use a phone? Requires password to get in - don't know it. Can't wipe phone no matter what is tried. Phone is useless. Have a book of papers containing communication with them. Account went to collection agency. They are useless. Same with them. No returned calls, etc. Keep adding interest to amount due. Said amount can't be written off either. Trying to settle estate and get help with this is redundant.

Consumer Cellular - Great company
Had an issue with having a phone number transferred. Ended up talking to three different customer service people. They all went above and beyond to help with the transfer and all were super nice and helpful. Thank you so much. Love the service and the people.
