Don’t Forget EasyPay When Considering a New Device

Year after year, manufacturers upgrade their smartphones with exciting new features. If you like to keep up with the latest and greatest technology, I’d like to remind you of just one of the ways that Consumer Cellular makes it easy to do so.

Our EasyPay financing option offers a convenient way to get the device you want without having to break the bank. Simply put down a small amount at the time of your purchase, then pay off the remaining balance in $25 installments. The amount due is conveniently added to your monthly Consumer Cellular bill with 0% interest!

If you’ve been thinking about stepping up to one of our premium smartphones, like the iPhone X or the new Samsung models, you’ll be delighted with this handy, affordable way to get started. You can check our complete lineup of affordable smartphones to see which ones are available using Consumer Cellular EasyPay right now. The amount of your down payment will vary depending on the device you choose. After an initial credit check, you’ll be enjoying your new phone in no time!

There are a few other important things to know about EasyPay. Your monthly installment payment is $25, no matter which device you purchase, there are no interest charges or additional fees, and you can make early payments or pay the full balance at any time. To eliminate worry about paying your bill on time, you can also use our AutoPay program. With AutoPay, you’ll receive an invoice each month showing the charges due. On the due date we will automatically apply your payment using a credit or debit card that you provide. If you cancel your service before the EasyPay balance has been paid, the remaining amount will be billed at the time you cancel.

Next time you’re in the market for a new device with your Consumer Cellular service, be sure to look for the EasyPay cell phone financing option. It’s the “easy way” to stay connected with the best phones on the market.

    I purchased an IPhone 8 plus from you. I cannot hear incoming calls unless I have it on “speaker.” How do I get this problem resolved? With Verizon, I called them or went in to their store and they fixed the problem.

    What do I do for my Iphone purchased at Consumer Cellular to get it working correctly?

  3. Lyudmila Vasilchenko says

    For the past several weeks I have problems with my phone: the calls and messages do not come through. A few times customer service fixed the problem, but it still comes back, even after sim card was replaced.

    To reach support is a not very nice experience – the waiting time is way to long either on the phone or via chat.

    The online help is lousy and does not provide answers.

    I am a member of CC since 2011, but I am considering switching to the provider with more reliable service

    reply to Lyudmila

    I have a new MotoE4…I would like talk and text but only want to use data when connected to WIFI…How can assure myself that I have the set up correctly..? Thanks..

    reply to Mary

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thanks for posting, Mary! The best way to make sure you aren’t using any data unintentionally is to disable the data feature on your phone. To do this, open your Settings app and go to Data Usage. To turn your data off, slide the button to the left (the off position). Press “OK” to confirm. If you find that you’re still using data after that, please give us a call at 888-345-5509 and we’ll be happy to assist you. We appreciate you posting, and we hope you have a lovely day!

    Consumer Cellular was my very best choice for coverage when I joined over 3 years ago. It had a great selection of affordable plans for us to choose from. Unfortunately, the company has decided to re-invent itself this year. When I joined, each line was $10 per month. Then you paid for what you needed that month (more or less minutes/text/or data) You could increase or decrease amounts each month with no additional fees.
    Some months I used more talk or a bit more data, and the service worked well for me.

    I thought I was grandfathered in, but that does not seem to be the case. I cannot “upgrade” my plan now because it would become a new plan under the new terms. My additional line would now be $15 a month if I changed. All of the old choices have been replaced. I would like to get some additional minutes and data, but I do not need much. I am willing to pay more for increased usage, but do not think it is fair that the line usage price increases also. I know it is only a $5 a month difference, but the cost is now fairly close to the plan I had before switching to Consumer Cellular.

    Consumer Cellular, please show some consideration to long time loyal customers. We should be grandfathered for certain things such as the monthly line charge.

    Thanks

    Your products are marketed to older people, however, I have found your company less helpful than others in dealing with customers who have dementia. I have your service for my mother, who lives in a nursing home. Because she has dementia, she often calls 411 seeking the numbers of her friends who have unfortunately passed away (she doesn’t remember they are dead). Her phone often gets disconnected due to excessive 411 usage. She cannot learn new things, such as a toll-free directory assistance number. It wouldn’t help, even if she could, because she insists the operators are wrong and keeps calling. I have had to pay hundreds of dollars due to these 411 calls. When she was with another carrier and inadvertently ran up hundreds of dollars in foreign calls due to misdialing, that carrier took the charges off the bill. Other carriers permit “parental controls” or the ability to block certain numbers. Yours does not. I am very disappointed that your customer service reps will not remove the charges, considering the circumstances and that my mother is your target market. I am considering changing carriers because I cannot afford to keep paying outrageous bills simply because my mom has dementia and can’t help calling 411 (I’ve asked her repeatedly not to do it and she denies calling — she can’t remember). he nursing home has suggested taking her phone away.

    reply to Ginger

    • Hi Ginger, thanks for reaching out. I see that you chatted with a customer support specialist today to discuss this and a credit for a portion of the charges was applied. We’d like to follow up with you by email and see if there’s anything else we can do to help prevent the 411 calls and extra charges, please be on the lookout for a message from us. Have a great day!

      • Tsippi says

        I would like to switch to consumer cellular, but I need to be able to block certain numbers (like 411) and restrict usage when my mother is without a caretaker. Other carriers let me do this. Is there no solution with Consumer Cellular?

        reply to Tsippi

        • Hi there, thanks for your question! This isn’t a feature we currently offer, but we appreciate you taking the time to mention how helpful this service would be. We’re always looking to offer new options that work for all types of users, so we appreciate suggestions like yours. I’ve passed your comments on to our management team. Have a great day!

          • Tara says

            Also interested in this. Both parents have dementia and my mom has FTD so her memory is mostly intact. Therefore, she can figure out how to call anyone and order services which I then have to pay for. Really disappointing that this isn’t available. I am currently looking into other carriers because of this.

          • Hi Tara, thanks for your post! While our phones do not have that option to keep numbers from being called, we do offer our GrandPad that is set up so that it can only call approved contacts so if a number you don’t want them to contact is not listed there, they would not have access to call that number. You can take a closer look at this device by going to our website here.

  12. Steve Booher says

    Purchased my Phone December of 2016 or Jan, 2017. I noticed that sometimes calls go direct to voice mail without ringing the phone. Never called in about it until April of 2018. 2 or 3 techs could not help so let it rest for a while then tried again. Three different tech did not help . the last tech helped me make a decision, he must have had a bad day. Most times the phone goes direct to voice mail whether I have plenty of antenna or very little. Having this account is like having a beeper and you know to call in. Why put up with this? I think I will get a different phone with another phone carrier.

    reply to Steve

    • Hi Steve, thanks for posting. I see that we’ve spoken to you to troubleshoot your phone in the past and successful test calls were made. We’d like to reach out to you by email and determine what’s going on. Please be on the lookout for a message from us and have a great day!

    reply to Candice

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

    I would like to change the due date of my billing. It falls at a difficult time in my budget, I’m on a fixed income (retired w/ social security), and it would help if it were a week later. Currently 6/14 — I get my SS in the third week of the month, so 6/21 would help a lot. Who can I contact?

    please help me out… if you guys, lets say,. are selling a iPhone x and the price is 300 or more. it says with consumer cellular easy pay, you guys lower it down to 100 up front and its 25 a month. how would I know the whole payment of the iPhone x will be with the plans and everything???… do yall get me??

    reply to adriana

    • Hi Adriana, thanks for your post. If you set up an EasyPay on your account, all payments towards the phone will actually be listed on your invoice. It will say EasyPay payment and then give you a number out of the total payments that will be made, for example, it could say 1 of 10 to let you know where you are in the process for getting that paid off.

      reply to Jacob

  22. Alonzo Benton says

    Hi um, I want to buy a iPhone XR on easypay but I dont want to buy data and talk from consumer Cellular because they don’t provide as much gigabyte as I would like. So is it possible to pay the easypay plan only and go to somewhere like TMobile or boost to pay for data since they offer 64 gigabyte and still pay the easypay and consumer Cellular

    reply to Alonzo

    • Hi Alonzo, thanks for your question. We’re not able to set up an EasyPay offer without you being a customer with us. I’d also advised are phones are not sold unlocked and it would need to be active with our service for 180-days and completely paid off before we could unlock it to be moved to a different provider.
