Do you know about our Family Plans?

Grandparents And Grandchildren With A CameraYou’re probably hearing a lot about family wireless plans from other providers these days. Truth be told, we’ve been offering such family-friendly cell phone plans for years. For instance, we allow you to add a family member to your Consumer Cellular account for only $10 per month, per line. Plus, you can enjoy free calls between all phones on the same account.

Simply put, our family sharing approach gives you a flexible and low-cost way to keep in touch with loved ones, as well as make sure they keep in touch with you. Adding multiple lines means other family members can benefit from everything your Consumer Cellular account offers, too.

What are those benefits? For starters, there’s our no-contract philosophy. We’ve always allowed our customers the freedom to choose to stay with us. I like to think our no-contract policy helps keep us on our toes. Because we can’t rely on the fine print of a two-year contract to keep you, we have to meet or exceed your expectations daily. We must perform. And that’s how it should be.

Then there are our affordable rates. We’ve long been offering plans as low as $10 a month, even lower for AARP members. And we don’t penalize you for changing your plan at the last minute, either. We know your cell phone needs can change suddenly and nobody likes paying unexpected overage fees.

Likewise, our free Usage Alerts program has a proven, successful track record. Within two years of its introduction, the program saved our customers more than $12 million in avoided overage fees.

Family members on your Consumer Cellular account will benefit from our extensive nationwide cell phone coverage, as well as our friendly contact centers, which are all in the United States.

With our Family wireless plans, it doesn’t matter which features your family members are using—voice, text or data—it still only costs $10 a month to add a line. There are no additional or hidden costs. And even though you’re sharing with others, it’s still your account and you’re always in control.

Consumer Cellular plans are affordable and flexible, and enable our customers to save money on their monthly cell phone usage. Why not share and save? Add a line today and enjoy even more of a good thing.

  1. Scott says

    I’m confused … please clarify the statement “you can enjoy free calls between all phones on the same account.” Does that mean if my wife is on the same account as me and we call each other we are not using up minutes?
    Thank you.

    reply to Scott

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Great question, Scott. If you are on our Family Plan, any calls made between you and your wife are free- meaning they don’t use minutes from your plan. As long a the phones are on the same account, the calls are free. Thanks for the comment!

  2. Darlene says

    Everyone at Consumer Cellular is great and very helpful, but my problem is I got bad phones, not cheap phones just bad, they exchanged both of them for us for the same phones but they are not any better. We have not had them a year yet so we are at a loss, we want to stay with Consumer Cellular because it is affordable for us but we only have usable phones half the time.. Now looking for two cheap phones that we can talk and text on.

    Is there an option for more than 2.5 GB? The wife and I are on a plan and I wanted to ad my son my son but I’m afraid we might need more data.

    reply to H

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for the comment, Ray. At this time, our highest data plan is 2.5GB. If you would like more information about our Family Plans, give us a call at 888-345-5509, and our customer support team can see if we have an option that would work well for you and your family. Thanks again!

  7. Mike ONeil says

    So if I were to add my wife it would add $10 per month to my bill, so if my bill were $50 it would now be $60. Better to let her have her own account.

    reply to Mike

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for commenting, Mike. It would be an additional $10 to add your wife to your plan, but you would be able to share minutes, texts and data. You also would receive free in-account calls, so any calls made between you and your wife would not be counted against your plan. That’s why many of our customers find our family plans to be a better deal. If you have any questions about plan options, feel free to give us a call at 888-345-5509. Thanks!

  8. Jim says

    I currently have an old iPhone 3GS. It works fine, although most new apps and apps that are updating require a newer operating system than my phone will allow. My wife is still in the flip-phone era, though not with Consumer Cellular, so this wouldn’t bother her much. Is it possible for me to purchase a new iPhone and transfer my 3GS to her? And, if so, will I get to keep my number, will she get to keep hers, and will my contacts, apps, calendar, photos, etc. be transferrable to my new phone? Or would she have to buy a new phone of her own?

    Thanks.

    reply to Jim

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Great question, Jim. If you purchase a iPhone, you should be able to transfer everything easily to your new phone using your Apple ID and iCloud. Make sure to back up everything to iCloud before you begin (you will probably need at least iOS 5.1.1). Our customer service team will be happy to assist you with transferring your number to a new iPhone, as well as send you a SIM card for your wife to use. Just give us a call at 888-345-5509, and our customer service team can get both of you started. Thank you again for the comment!

      Great question, Jen! We offer a great option for families, with all lines sharing the same plan minutes, texts and data for only $10 per month per additional phone. Depending on credit approval and how long you’ve been our customer, you can have 4-7 lines per account. We can take a look at your individual case if you give us a call at 888-345-5509. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have, and we can add any family members as well. Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us today!

      Thank you for asking, Zak. You can add a line to your account for a friend, and there is no activation fee!

  12. Steve says

    So if I buy a new phone and am already on a family plan, could I stay on the plan with the new device? Also, could I keep my old phone number? Looking to switch from a Samsung Galaxy to an iPhone.

    reply to Steve

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Absolutely, Steve! You can purchase a new phone, and you won’t need to make any changes to your plan unless you want to. All you need to do is order the phone, and we’ll take care of the rest, including transferring your current phone number. You can even get a new iPhone at your local Target store, or on our website here. And, as always, we can assist you over the phone at 888-345-5509 if that works best for you. Thank you for taking the time to comment today, and we look forward to helping you with your new iPhone!

      Thank you for asking, Hannah. We do require that an account holder be at least 18 years old to open a line of service. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have at 888-345-5509. Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us today!

    I don’t call much but sometimes I text and use a little data every now and then. Can I just get a text + data plan? Or is this only to be added to an existing talk plan?

    reply to steve

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Great question, Steve. It sounds like our $10 plan might be a good option for you. You would only pay for the minutes you use, but you can add any of our text and data plans in addition. You can view our plans here, and see what option works best for your needs. Best of all, you can change your plan at any time. We would be happy to answer any questions you might have at 888-345-5509, if that is more convenient. Thank you for taking the time to comment today, and we look forward to serving you!

  15. Tonia says

    If we have three lines and add the 750 minutes plan, would each phone have access to 750 minutes or would we have to share that amount?

    reply to Tonia

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Great question, Tonia. With our family share plans, your three lines would have access to the same 750 minutes. Any calls made between the phones on the shared plan (such as person A calls person B) are not counted against your plan minutes. Thank you for taking the time to comment, and please feel free to give us a call at 888-345-5509 if we can answer any questions for you about our shared plans. We’re happy to help!

      reply to Ashley

  16. Daniel says

    Please clarify: are you saying that I can add a line to my wife’s account for $10, and share her current plan? So there would be no additional charges for me to use the same plan? I do not have to sign up for a talk/data plan of my own?
    I ask, because when I go to add a line to my wife’s account on your website, it pre-fills the order box with additional talk/data charges, and instead of showing $10 as the charge, it shows something over $30. Please clarify. Thanks!

    reply to Daniel

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Daniel. You can absolutely add a line to your wife’s plan for just $10 per month. You will share plan minutes, texts and data between the lines. Even better, any calls made between you and your wife don’t count against your plan minutes! Some customers need a different plan when they add another line, so just choose the option at the bottom for “I don’t need text or data at this time”, and continue to check out. You will be able to see the $10 as an additional service in the Plans & Services summary on the right of your screen. We’re happy to help you add a line over the phone if that is more convenient, just give us a call at 888-345-5509. We’ll be happy to help you! Thank you again for commenting today!

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Liz. You can add any additional line to your plan for just $10 per line per month. You’ll be able to share your minutes, texts and data, and calls made between your phones are free! At this time, our largest data plan includes unlimited text messaging and 4GB of data. You can view all of our plans here on our website, and we’re happy to discuss your options with you at 888-345-5509. We appreciate you reaching out to us, and we hope to see you as a customer soon!

      reply to Ashley

      • Elisa says

        So this means the 4GB would be shared across the 3 people on the plan, not 4GB per person?

        reply to Elisa

        • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

          That’s correct, Elisa. If you have a family plan with 4GB, that data is shared by all users on that plan. Thank you for asking!

          reply to Ashley

          • JP says

            Ashley, could someone add an additional data plan in this instance? Like just add on a smaller one to the 4G?

          • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

            Great question, JP. While you can’t add an additional data plan, we can talk with you about some ways to structure your account to better manage your data. Just give us a call at 888-345-5509, and we’ll work with you to find the best solution. Thank you for commenting!

  21. Solomon says

    I’m 18 without credit and I’m trying to do the easy pay plan. I make 300 dollars a month not sure if that helps. But I’m not able to get the phone. Is there a way that I can get it or do I have to wait until I’m 21 so I can build my credit.

    reply to Solomon

    • Dominic at Consumer Cellular says

      Thanks for the question, Solomon. Our Easy Pay financing plan is available on an individual basis, depending on your credit history. You should be able to establish credit history well in advance of turning 21 however, if you currently don’t have any credit history, the plan likely won’t be available to you. If you need any additional information, please feel free to call us at 888-345-5509. Thank you.

    I haven’t been able to send or receive photos on my Samsung Galaxy 3 using Consumer Cellular. I find also that I cannot access the internet or use my navigation. I’ve read other complaints like this and that it is nearly impossible to contact a rep from CC. What can I do?

    reply to Jen

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Jen. I took a look at your account, and it looks like you were able to take the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new Galaxy 3. When you use our service with a device you were able to purchase on your own, we often need to send you some updated setting in order for it to work properly. We’re happy to help you at 888-345-5509. It’s important to call us from a different phone so that we can work with you to input any settings that may need to be adjusted manually. We look forward to speaking with you and getting this taken care of for you!

    How much is international texting? Specifically to the United Kingdom.

    reply to Matthew

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for commenting, Matthew! International texting rates are the same for all countries, so as long as you are sending a message to an international phone number, you’ll pay $0.05 per message. These won’t be deducted from your plan, but any text messages you receive from an international number will be deducted from your plan as usual. If we can answer any other questions for you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 888-345-5509. We appreciate you taking the time to post, and happy texting!

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      That’s a good question, Cindy. All devices on a family plan share the same Talk and Connect plans, so you would not have your own individual plans. Many of our customers find this works well for them, as they save more than they would with two separate accounts.

As far as emails are concerned, you can log in to access an email account on any phone. As long as you don’t share your email login credentials with others, they won’t be able to see that either.

      We can help you with that, Jeff! We will need to adjust some settings on our end to make that hotspot feature work, and rest assured, you won’t need an additional line.

    I noticed the only question or comment consumer Cellular didn’t respond to is from 2014 a woman had the same problem I have today . I have also been debating in switching ,already left one company we had been with several years after paying a high bill and heard about CS. Reasonable price but the phones indeed go out ,go black ,won’t hold a charge, and we can’t buy a phone every other few months shouldn’t have to for what we paid for the phones. I thought we paid enough for our phones that they should last years and my husband doesn’t Tex or use internet on his phone and most times calls from my cellular phone don’t reaCh his and same his to mine!

    Hello,
    When I get to the end to check out, Will they let me know a different “Deposit” amount after running credit? I just don’t want to put my card information in, then be charged a different amount.

    reply to Chelsea

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      • ANTHONY BRODEUR says

        ok cool, thank you I have a question to ask you about EasyPay does require a credit check don’t have good credit?

        reply to ANTHONY

        • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

          Hi Anthony, the credit check does affect eligibility for our EasyPay program. If we’re not able to get you approved immediately, you may become eligible at a later date if you have active service and good payment history with us.

          reply to Nicole

  50. Morgan says

    Can i get a plan if i owe a different phone company.

    reply to Morgan

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      We appreciate the interest, Morgan. When signing up for our service, a credit check is processed. This is used to determine payment options available for service and equipment, and does not generally disqualify one from having our service.

  51. Jeff Asay says

    On average, how much would it be to add 3 iPhones to your company! Unlimited talk and text! We currently have AT&T

    reply to Jeff

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Jeff, if you have three lines of service with unlimited talk and text, the lowest cost would be $55.00 plus tax each month. The cost would increase depending on how much data you need and could go all the way up to $90.00 plus tax. You can review all of our plans online here.

  52. Carolyn says

    I called concsumer cellular to switch my phone service to your company and I was told out of the 4 lines that I currently have on my account I would only be able to switch over 3 lines until I establish credit with your company and then I could add the 4th line later. I have excellent credit and I am confused why this has become an issure. I had called in prior to requesting the switch to ask questions and was quoted a price for 4 lines but was not told at that time that i would only be able to sign up for 3 lines in the beginning.

    reply to Carolyn

    • Hi Carolyn, thanks for reaching out to us. The number of lines on an account to start with can be based on the credit check that is run when the account is opened and past billing history as well. There is not a set number for the credit check but there are times when new customers do need to establish a good payment history with us before we can set up more lines or EasyPay options.
