    I have a question. I live out in the country and have a metal roof on my house. I have much difficulty receiving and making calls. I need a signal booster. What do you recommend?

We do offer things like WiFi calling though to help with this situation. Give us a call at 800-686-4460 or chat with one of our agents here for further assistance.

    • Hi Diane, thanks for your question. If the phone is completely unlocked from other networks, is GSM-compatible, and VoLTE capable, it may work on our network. We can’t guarantee compatibility for all models, but we’ll do all that we can to see if we can get that working for you. If you have any questions or concerns about service all, definitely feel free to give us a call at 800-686-4460 or chat with one of our agents here and we’d be happy to help.

    I’ve been advised by Consumer Cellular (CC) that my Samsung Note 4 (Model SM-N910A) phone, a “4G LTE” device, will soon not work on the CC network once 3G service is terminated.

    I just recently found this, on AT&T’s website: which indicates that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (N910A) WILL work on their network after 3G phaseout in Feb. 2022.

    If, as I was told recently by a CC customer service rep, CC utilizes AT&T infrastructure in my local area, why am I being told that my two Note 4 phones currently running on the CC (ATT?) network will soon no longer work?
