Find Our Phones and More at a Target Store Near You

We’re extremely proud of our partnership with Target, which allows us to conveniently offer Consumer Cellular products and services at more than 1,800 retail locations across the country. It’s a great way for you to get a look at our devices before buying them, and makes it quick and easy to sign up for service and activate a new phone or a SIM card, or even use our SIM card with a phone you already have. Buying at Target also gives you the advantage of getting your new phone right away if you don’t have time to wait for shipping.

Target stores carry a range of our flip phones and Android smartphones. Some locations also carry the latest iPhone models, which you can purchase in-store using our handy EasyPay program. With EasyPay, you put as little as $50 down, then make interest-free payments of $25 on your monthly invoice until your new iPhone is paid in full.

In addition, select Target locations now provide our customers with in-store technical assistance. If our Customer Support team finds they’re not able to fully resolve an issue over the phone, you’ll have the option of having us schedule a convenient service visit to get expert help at a participating store near you. Just remember—you’ll always need to start by contacting us at (888) 345-5509 to troubleshoot any issues first; in-store support is an exclusive benefit to Consumer Cellular customers, so Target does not offer it on a “walk-in” basis.

Be sure to look for our display in the electronics section of a Target store in your area. You can use our online Store Locator to find the nearest location, and even find out which of our products are offered there before you go. It’s just another way we make it easy for you to get the most out of your Consumer Cellular service!

40 Thoughts on "Find Our Phones and More at a Target Store Near You"

  1. Jesus E. Batista says

    I’ve been with Consumer Cellular since 2013 (switched from Sprint) and I love the android phones and service I have received. Especially the increase of phone usage that has been given over the years at no extra cost! I am retired and don’t need all of the bells and whistles I thought I needed when I first started with an android in ’09. With that said, your new web page is too busy and your log in at the top of the page is a joke. I know that you are trying to appeal to the younger set but as long as your commercials are geared to us seniors…you’re fighting a losing battle.

        Will a Kyocera DuraXT unlocked cellphone work on Consumer Cellular network? If so I will take it to my dealer and change the phone I have.

        reply to William

        • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

          Thank you for asking, William. While we can’t guarantee all phones will work with our service, in most cases, an unlocked GSM device will work with our SIM card. We recommend trying our free SIM card with your device to see if it is compatible. Our SIM cards can be found here on our site, at your local Target store or we can send you one if you call us at 888-345-5509. We’re also happy to answer any other questions you may have about our service. We appreciate you taking the time to reach out to us, and we hope you have a great day!

    Understanding my usage details. When I look at my usage details online, it shows a date and time. But many of the line items show calls in the early morning, before 8AM when we are closed, so I know that’s not the actual call time. What does the call timestamp indicate?

    reply to Mike

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Mike. The timestamp indicates the tower time, or the local time at the tower that recorded the call. If you think there may an issue with the usage reported on your account, we’re happy to go over that with you. Please give us a call at 888-345-5509, and we can assist you. We appreciate you posting today!

    I agree with another person who posted, I liked the old website much better. The new one seems more complicated to use. “Keep it simple” seems to have been the reason for your sucess. Why mess with a good thing? I’m a long-time customer and very satisfied with your service. No one else is near as good.

    reply to Bob

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us, Bob. Our goal for the new site was to make it easier for all customers to find what they are looking for. I’m going to pass your feedback on to our site team, so that we can continue to improve the online experience for our customers. We appreciate you taking the time to post today!

    Hey got a question. Can you take my cloud savings app and save everything.????

    reply to mike

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Mike! Depending on the cloud storage app you’re using, you may be able to transfer photos and other documents to another phone or a computer. We recommend looking for that option within the app. And of course if you need help, we’ll be right here at 888-345-5509. We appreciate you posting, and hope you have a wonderful day!

  5. Camille says

    I am very pleased with consumer cellular. Never had texting with at&t because it was too expensive. I constantly text now which is much easier than calling. I have the doro flip which I call my granny phone and don’t need all those fancy phones since I am 70. My grandkids tell me I need an up to date phone but I tell them i’m quite happy with it. Customer service is great always polite and helpful. Thank you Consumer Cellular!

    reply to Camille

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      That’s wonderful to hear, Camille! I’m so glad to hear that Consumer Cellular has been a good fit for you. We appreciate your kind words, and look forward to serving you for years to come!

  6. Bonnie Hoag says

    I’m thinking of switching however I luv my Mega phone by Samsung. Could I keep my own phone and still sign on with your company?

    reply to Bonnie

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We have many customers just like you, Bonnie, who love their phone, but want better service. That’s why our SIM card can be the perfect solution! You can use it with most unlocked GSM phones, such as those used previously with AT&T or T-Mobile. We even have a video showing you just how easy it is, which you can watch here. Best of all, our SIM cards are absolutely free, as we’ll give you a $10 credit when you activate it. That way, there is no risk to you! You can pick one up at your local Target store, order one on our site or we can send you one if you call us at 888-345-5509. Thank you for taking the time to post today, and we look forward to speaking with you soon!

  7. Margaret Velarde says

    I need help, my grandson dropped my phone into the toilet, yes I said toilet and I need to get a new phone, but I was thinking of getting an “IPhone Smart Phone” but does that cause my plan to change, as the folks at Target are of little or no help…..so I need HELP ASAP

    reply to Margaret

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We’re so sorry to hear about your phone, Margaret. If you would like to purchase the iPhone with our interest-free Easy Pay plans, you’ll pay a one-time down payment, and the balance will be paid in $25 increments that will be added to your monthly bill. As for your plan, it won’t change if you switch to a new type of smartphone, unless you find yourself wanting more data to use. We’re happy to answer any other questions you may have about purchasing a new device at 888-345-5509. Thank you for posting!

  8. Claudia says

    Can I use my existing iPhone 5s with your service?

    reply to Claudia

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We appreciate you asking, Claudia! In most cases, unlocked GSM versions of the iPhone work quite well with our service, especially those used previously with AT&T or Verizon. You’ll want to confirm with your previous carrier that your device is unlocked, as we aren’t able to do that on our end. You can take a look at our video here to see how simple it is to use our SIM card with your phone. All you need to get started is our free SIM card, which you can find at Target, on our site, or we can help you order over the phone at 888-345-5509. Thank you so much for posting today, and we look forward to assisting you!

    Thinking about switching. How do you compare to Straight Talk, which we currently have?

    reply to Alex

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for reaching out to us, Alex! We’re happy to tell you more about our service. We offer plans for calling, texting and data. You can view them here. We don’t have contracts, and you can change your plan at any time. Many of our customers find that they save when compared to other carriers, since they can reduce their plan if they find they didn’t need as many minutes or messages as they thought. You can use our service with a new phone purchased from us, or you can use an unlocked GSM phone you already have. We’re happy to talk with you about your usage, then recommend a plan that would fit your needs. Just give us a call at 888-345-5509, and we will be ready to assist you. We appreciate you taking the time to reach out to us, and we look forward to speaking with you!

  10. Andrew says

    Currently with t-mobile. My wife and I both have older lg(android) phones and iPads we use constantly. I have unlimited data for both iPads. If I switch to Consumer Cellular, will you support phones and iPads with unlimited data? If so, what would be my approximate monthly bill?

    reply to Andrew

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We appreciate you reaching out to us about our service, Andrew. At this time, we don’t offer an unlimited data plan, though we do have options with unlimited talk and text. Our largest data plan offers 5GB of data, and you can see all of our plan options here on our site. Depending on how you use your devices, our plans may work for your needs. We’re happy to talk with you about your usage and recommend a plan at 888-345-5509. Thank you for taking the time to post, and we look forward to speaking with you!

    Really a frustrating day; wish I could praise the Consumer Cellular events of today but cannot.

Interior notification object in the phone states INVALID SIM CARD! This is a Samsung Galaxy s5.

  12. Roger and Marilynn Gregory says

    Is there a difference between “Secondary Access” and “Secondary User”. My husband who has the account called in yesterday asking for secondary access for me (spouse) and was given a secondary user. They never asked for a phone number to be assigned. I want to switch our home phone (now with TimeWarner-Spectrum) to the cell phone. What do we need to do to accomplish this. They are supposedly mailing me a SIM card. Can I take that to Target to purchase a phone and get the number changed there. Help.

    reply to Roger

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      I’m happy to help you, Marilynn. I reviewed your account, and I see that you are listed as a secondary user, and that your new SIM card is being processed. The SIM card has been assigned a phone number, so please call us at 888-345-5509 to verify that is indeed the number you prefer. Once the SIM card arrives, you’ll be able to install it into a phone you already have. That’s it! We’re happy to talk with you about the next steps if you like, so give us a call at your convenience. Welcome to Consumer Cellular, and we look forward to serving you!

  13. Denise Sullivan says

    Going to Target is a great way to get a look at a device before buying? I don’t think so! I went to three, yes three, different Target stores and not one of them had a phone I could hold or even look at. They all also told me they could not even open a box containing a phone unless I paid for it first.

    reply to Denise

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Denise. I’m happy to pass your feedback on to our retail team. Our displays at Target are meant to give you a better understanding of the device, so we do apologize if that wasn’t the case in this situation. Please note that if you do purchase a device from us and it isn’t what you were expecting, you can always return it free of charge thanks to our Risk-Free Guarantee. We’re happy to tell you more about that over the phone at 888-345-5509. We appreciate you taking the time to post, and we hope you have a great day!

    I have an CC flip phone that I replaced with an Android. I would like to give my old flip phone to a friend (who also has a CC account). Can she just take the phone to Target to get a new SIM card and have her cellphone number programed to it?

    reply to Linda

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Great question, Linda! She can either get a new SIM card for her account from Target, or we can send her one via the mail, whichever is most convenient. If she needs any help, we’re always ready to assist at 888-345-5509. Thank you for posting!

  15. Kae LeBeau says

    Hello Consumer Cellular,
    I just want to share with you how much I like my new Doro 626 flip phone! I purchased it at my local Target store and a mobile rep set it up for me right there, it was great! I love that I can have unlimited talk and texts for such a great price which is even better using my AARP discounts! My previous cell phone was an android “smart phone” with a different service provider. I didn’t utilize all the features and the reception/service was not good. The features on the Doro are just what I need and easy to use plus the reception/service is great! So happy I switched service to you!!

    reply to Kae

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      That is so wonderful to hear, Kae! Thank you for sharing your experience with us. The Doro 626 is a great device, and we’re so glad to hear you like it. We appreciate you posting!

    Good luck in getting any service from Target!!!Tried several in the area and none had phone in stock which I was looking. Employees either offered no help or inaccurate info. I ended up ordering from Consumer Cellular where I always get great service….. Thanks

  17. Steve Saul says

    Interested in switching from Verizon to Consumer Cellular … Interested in IPhone 7 Plus (line 1) and CC-101 (line 2). Understand the Iphone carries $170 up front cost + $25/month for 24 months … CC-101 flat $30 up front cost. Understand a $40 ($20/line) up front credit.
    Doses this seem true???

    Does a monthly cost of about $40 +$25 IPhone seem correct (AARP Member)???

    Is service as good as ATT / Verizon?

    reply to Steve

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      I’m happy to answer your questions, Steve. The totals listed for the devices you’ve chosen is correct. If you open your account before August 15th, you will see the $40 credit (2 lines) on your first invoice. Going forward, you’ll see the price for your current plan, $10 for the second line and the $25 EasyPay payment on your invoice each month. We provide nationwide service that covers 99% of the population, and we can take a look at the coverage in your specific area to ensure you’ll have the best possible experience. Just give us a call at 888-345-5509 if you have any questions, and we can help you get started. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us, and we hope to see you as a Consumer Cellular customer soon!

    I’m interested in transferring my mother’s LAN line at Hawaiian Telcom to Consumer Cellular. The sales rep at the local Target store said that I will need to bring in the Hawaiian Telcom phone bill and the PIN for the account. I checked with Hawaiian Telcom and was told
    that their LAN lines do not have
    PINs. Please let me know what is the best way to resolve this. Also does Consumer Cellular have reception in the 96816 area?
    Thank you.

    reply to Karen

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for posting, Karen. In order to transfer your mother’s number to our service, we need the account information, which is why we usually recommend having an invoice or bill on hand. Not every account has a PIN, so we’re happy to work with you to get any additional information if it is needed. It looks like that ZIP code is covered, and you can view our coverage map here in detail. If you have any questions or would like to get started, we’re happy to assist you over the phone at 888-345-5509. We appreciate you taking the time to reach out to us, and we hope you have a wonderful day!
