      Hi Linda, we have videos available on our website here so you can see how the ConnectPad works. It can also make cellular calls, just like a cell phone.

  3. Joe says

    Hello! I am interested in joining Consumer Cellular and switching from AT&T, but I am concerned about future international plans. After unlocking my phone with AT&T and joining Consumer Cellular, would I be able to remove the Consumer Cellular SIM card and then use an international SIM card in order to ensure that I’m not hit with international roaming charges? And then upon returning to the United States, put my Consumer Cellular SIM card back in the phone to resume service?

    reply to Joe

    • Hi Joe, thanks for your question! You can definitely do that as long as the phone is completely unlocked. We couldn’t guarantee compatibility for all the SIM cards out there, but you can definitely try a SIM from a different country to use while you’re there and then put our SIM back in the phone when you’re back.

  4. Marita says

    I already have Consumer Cellular in my cell phone. What would the additional charges be to use both devices,

    reply to Marita

    • Hi Marita, thanks for your question! The plan for the phones and the plan for the Connect Pad are actually separate. The Connect Plan has two plan options, our 10GB data plan for $40 a month plus tax or our Unlimited data option which is $60 a month plus tax and you would pay for both plans on one account if you have a phone and the Connect Pad.

      reply to Jacob

  5. Jim says

    Does this device need a stand alone plan or can t be added to an existing acc?

    reply to Jim

    • Great question, Jim. You can add it to an existing account, but it has its own plan even on that existing account. The Connect Pad plan options are our 10GB data plan which is $40 a month plus tax, or the Unlimited data option which is $60 a month plus tax.

      reply to Jacob

  6. Mary L Brown says

    Does this device come with a separate phone number or is it set up on my cell number?

    reply to Mary

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Great question, Mary. You can have the ConnectPad set up with your existing number, and that’s something we can assist you with if you give us a call at 888-345-5509.

  7. Ms Calhoun says

    Hi I have iCloud 7+ and I fell in love with my cell phone . The only thing I miss is I want to type copy and paste. To name a few things. The reason why I would like to change is the screen is too small for my eyes. Blue Ray is a kicker on my eyes . What do you think do you have something for me? Plus my fingers are large too.

    reply to Ms

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for taking the time to post, Ms. Calhoun. If you need to copy and paste text, all you have to do is double-tap on the word and tap Copy. If you need to select a sentence, there will be pins on either side of the word that you can drag to highlight more. More steps are available here. For the blue light, you can enable night shift on the iPhone here, which changes the screen to warmer tones that are easier on the eyes.

      The iPhone 7 Plus has a 5.5 inches display. If you need a larger display, any of the iPhones we offer, except the iPhone SE, start at 6.1 inches. We also offer the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra that both have much larger screens and come with a stylus. The Motorola Moto G Stylus is also another great option, at a lower price point. All of our larger phones can be found here. You can click on “View Details” to see the screen size for each model.

    Can it monitor my security camers by just speaking to it?

    reply to Louis

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Louis, if your security cameras come with an Android app, you can download it onto the ConnectPad through the Play Store.

    Can I block texts from specific numbers or can I block all texts for a specific time period?

    reply to LowellChristian

  10. LowellChristian says

    I have a doro flip phone. Can you give me specific instructions how I do this. I don’t know what the connect pad is or how to access it.

    reply to LowellChristian

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for posting, Lowell. The ConnectPad is a tablet. If you want to use it, you would have to purchase it, which can be done by calling us at 888-345-5509, or logging into your account here.

      reply to Nicole

  11. LowellChristian says

    Ok so is it possible to block texts with my flip phone or can it be done on this site using my IPad?

    reply to LowellChristian

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Lowell, texts aren’t able to be blocked on the flip phones, and your iPad wouldn’t have a connection to your cell line to block them since a number can only be associated with one device at a time.

    Is it wifi compatible?

  15. jackie says

    Can this be used as my main phone and I can get rid of my smartphone? 2nd question, if I can use this as a phone, must I only use a speaker, or can I take speaker off and use it like a regular phone for privacy when around other people?

    reply to jackie

  16. bob s says

    Does the Connect Pad account also have the auto upgrade feature allowing any usage over 10MB to bump the service tier up to unlimited…..and can it be reduced back to 10MB in the following month?
    Does CC assign it a phone number?
    What operating system does it use? Is there a list of specifications?
    A list of Apps included?
    Just watched the vids and they’re great but I didn’t see answers to any of the above.


    reply to bob

    • Hi Bob, thanks for your interest in our device! If you use up the 10GB of data then the system would bump you up to the Unlimited option, or you should be able to make changes to the plan once the account is set up. We do assign a number to the device for you. The operating system that is used is Android Q (Android 10.0), we don’t have a list of specifications or apps that come with it. It is an Android device though so you would see the standard Google apps there.

  17. Rick says

    Can I use it on Wi-Fi only for reading books

    reply to Rick

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Great question, Rick. The ConnectPad can be used on Wi-Fi, and it can download e-reading apps like Kindle from the Play Store.

      reply to Nicole

  18. Jeff W says

    Is this an easy device to use as a phone when you are on the go?
    Also, if you assign a number to the connect pad at time of purchase, how easily can I move my existing phone number from my iPhone to my connect pad?

    reply to Jeff

    • Hi Jeff, thank you for your questions! The device is set to be on speakerphone unless you have headphones on to make the conversation private, so that is something to take into consideration if you want to take this device out and are expecting a call. We’re not able to move a number over to that device though.

      reply to Jacob

  19. Connie says

    I bought 2 CC. I noticed we can’t change our plan to a lower plan. Why not? We was told we would be able to change out plan anytime we needed to. We realized that we don’t use either one of the CC to pay such a high plan and need to lower it… What is Add + Share plan how does that work and would that be a better option for us? Or do I need to disconnect one or both CC?

    reply to Connie

    • Hi Connie, thanks for your question! Adding a sharing plan would mean you’re wanting to add more lines to the account and those would share a plan outside of the ConnectPad’s plan. If you would like to add any other lines to the account, give us a call at 800-686-4460 and we’d be happy to help with that process!

  22. Dale says

    Why is it that CC Connect Pad tablet has a speaker phone to use ALL the time while on; this means that one has to have headset on it all the time to receive any incoming call/movie/music/other form privacy; why can one simply have the option to be able to just answer & not specifically on speakerphone ALL the time?? When will 5G be available in this model and why not offer it NOW & capable of it already installed, since 4 LTE is on the phase out already? What about a protective glass – how durable is that from cracking if ever dropped? If I close out my Doro clam shell model and its account assigned #, can I then upgrade with a new assigned phone # & obtain the newer CC Connect with everything unlimited for the $60.00 a month – since I do not want 2 separate lines? Would I have to return the older Doro clam shell model back to Consumer Cellular?

    reply to Dale

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for posting, Dale. We appreciate the feedback. The CC ConnectPad does not function exactly the same as a smartphone, so things like media or calls playing over the speaker automatically are normal. While we don’t have a screen protector available for the ConnectPad, it does come with a protective case.

      3G service is being phased out, not 4G LTE service. Network compatibility is also dependent on the hardware of the device, so a software update would not change that. We do not currently have a 5G compatible tablet. If one becomes available in the future, then you’re welcome to upgrade to it. Our customer service team can also help with replacing your Doro with the CC ConnectPad, and providing a new number.

    If I currently have 2 lines and then I get a connect pad to use as my primary phone, can I go down to 1 line and transfer my phone number to my connect pad?

  26. Kathleen M Farrell says

    Hello, can consumer connect be purchased in stores?

    reply to Kathleen

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Kathleen, the CC ConnectPad is available through some Target stores. I recommend checking for retail partners here, and calling to see if they have it in stock.

      reply to Nicole

  27. Helene Cooper says

    Do you have earphones that I can plug into my ConnectPad & then will I be able to listen to the phone call and no one else can hear it. I currently use Consumer Cellular. I have an iPhone 6s, IPhone 7Plus & old mini IPad on my account with the same phone number. I don’t want to use them anymore. I will only use my ConnectPad. Can I keep my same phone number?

    reply to Helene

  28. Karen says

    I do not like that I can’t turn speaker phone off. I wanted this to replace my phone but not sure now that I can keep the service when I can’t have private conversations when out or even at home. I don’t like having to keep Bluetooth buds on all the time.

    reply to Karen

  29. Doug L. says

  31. Maximo Castaneda says

    Can I connect my old IPhone XS with my original number?

    reply to Maximo

    • Hi Maximo, thanks for your question! If you were a customer with us, if your account has been canceled for more than 30 days, we will need to send out a new SIM card and it will need either a new number or to transfer your number over from your current provider. To use a phone with us, you’ll want to make sure it’s unlocked from other providers, is GSM-compatible, and VoLTE capable. We can’t guarantee compatibility for all models, but we’ll do all we can to see if we can get it connected for you.
