    Who is the carrier for consumer cellular

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Michael, we use AT&T and T-Mobile towers for our service. You can also check out our coverage here.

  3. Patrice says

    This offer sounds exciting! I have a cordless landline that I’m thinking of ditching because it’s just a big expense for nothing but old fashioned security. I’m thinking of attaching the cordless to a wireless home phone base, allowing me to have one line for business and keep my cell phone # just for close friends. I have a question about voicemail. My cordless phone has an answering machine in the base and I would want messages to go there, rather than to the CC voicemail. What is the home phone base’s ring time before the call goes to voicemail?

    My current CC line has minutes and data. If I add a second line to my existing account, can I have that second line (my landline via home phone base) just be minutes without data, or would I set it up as a second account? Looking forward to saving $30+/mo!

    • Hi Patrice, thanks for your post! We can set the ring time to be set for up to 30 seconds if needed, or select from an interval of five once it’s set up. Just let us know and we can help with that process. We do suggest keeping all lines on one account, the base is set up so that it doesn’t grab a data connection and you can make sure the feature is off once it’s activated.

  4. KayAnn says

    We just signed up for a new line in September, are we still eligable for the 100 dollar rebate?

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Kay, this promotion started on 8/27/2021, so it would already be applied to your account automatically.

  5. Susan Pantoja says

    I just up my daughter will I be receiving getting the 100 dollars on my account

    • Hi Susan, thanks for your question. If your daughter was added as a line to your account during the time of the promotion, then you would be receiving that promotion. Checking the account, I do see that it’s listed there for you.

  6. HELLS_BELLS says

    How are we able to choose between AT&T and T-Mobile networks?
    I have a T-Mobile Cell Spot device that I’m hoping is compatible with Consumer Cellular, as their is no cell service from any wireless carrier and the Cell Spot provides a voice grade signal over the T-Mobile network.

    • Hi there, thanks for your question! If you’d like to make sure you’re getting a T-Mobile SIM we’d recommend either giving us a call so we can check on that once the order has been placed, or you can also pick up a SIM card from a partnered Target location as well to eliminate that guess work. Keep in mind, we can’t guarantee any cell service boosters will be compatible with our service though.

  7. Donna Hanson says

    Does consumer cellular have “ find a friend” all


    If I add a line with the phone. Is the phone unlock?

  9. Ernestine Byerly says

    Your website is absolutely useless when trying to cancel a line because of a deceased parent. We only need my moms number but no longer need my dad’s line. We want to down size her bill. PLEASE contact us to let us know how to get this accomplished. Why do you not have a 21st century way of communicating through email like most businesses do? It would make it so much simpler. The contract says we have to send in writing wanting to cancel but your address is hard to find. I need HELP!!!!!!

    • Hi Ernestine, thanks for your post. I’m sorry to hear about your loss and offer my condolences during this hard time. We no longer offer an email option for customer service, however, you can chat with us here or you can always give us a call at 800-686-4460 and we’d be happy to help with this process.

  10. Linda Box says

    My iPhone locked up on me it’s really messed up would like to stay with consumer Cellular have not been able to talk to any one about my phone or a replacement

    • Hi Linda, thanks for your post. I’m sorry to hear about the trouble you’re having with your phone. We’d definitely like to help out with that. Give us a call at 800-686-4460 or chat with one of our agents here for further assistance with that.

    How do I recover a forgotten voicemail password ? Ty

  13. Steve says

    Pretty dishonest business practice here – there’s no description of how one actually receives the $100, and it sure sounds like it’s an immediate statement credit, or a $100 prepaid card per line (“put $100 in your pocket!”).

    What’s *actually* true is that one gets a $5 credit for each invoice, which means it takes 20 months to actually get the full $100. I honestly understand setting it up that way, and it’s totally the choice of Consumer Cellular of what to offer, but you NEED TO TELL PEOPLE WHAT YOU’RE OFFERING.

    I’m looking to switch providers and was almost set on Consumer Cellular, but this is making me very hesitant. What other information is being withheld? What else will come as a surprise only *after* I’ve signed up? Since I can’t know for sure, so the logical assumption is to expect the same behavior as seen here.

    • Hi Steve, we appreciate you taking the time to post this feedback. I have passed your concerns about how this is presented as well as your suggestions on to the appropriate department for going forward in the future. Thank you!

  14. Kathleen Burchett says

    I need the phone number for the pay by phone option

  15. Ron Phillips says

    I am upset with consumer cellular. First I am told my phone which I purchase from consumer cellular will not work in 30 days. Then I am at Targets and a lady said she is going to be paying $5 less than me for the next 20 months. Now how do you think that makes me feel. I have been with consumer cellular for years but she is going to be paying less. This senior citizen is also so upset my Moto Phone is becoming useless. I think consumer cellular should take some responsibility and give me a $100 credit.

    • Hi Ron, thanks for your post. This promotion is only for if you’re adding a new line of service to an account, or if a new account is open by someone. We appreciate your feedback regarding this though and have passed it along to the appropriate department. Thank you.

  16. Dana says

    I’m thinking of switching to CC but wonder if you have any international plans while traveling to Portugal and Italy.

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Dana, we do have international roaming available. You can check out more information along with our rates here.

  17. James menna says

    Hi, nothing was mentioned when I ordered a phone about the $100. I didn’t see anything on my account. Do I get one?

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi James, if you signed up after 8/27/2021 then the promotion was automatically added to your account and you’ll see the credits on your invoices.

  18. Pat says

    I’m siding with Steve , We just added a line. I should say we added a sim card. We added the sim card well before the phone because of planned travel – it would be hard to know where to send the sim card when the phone was purchased. So we got a bill. For the sim card with the new number. But there was no usage because – no phone. So I called about the promo. It takes >30 minutes of waiting to talk to a CC Rep. And the answer is: It doesn’t matter that you just added a line and paid for the privilege of holding a sim card. Add another new line and then disconnect a line that you have and that would qualify for the promo. That’s a pretty ridiculous burden – on both the customer and CC, at a time when CC already can’t seem to be able to provide reasonable service to their customers (> 30 minutes wait time). Just awful customer service

    • Hi Pat, thanks for your post. We appreciate your feedback on our promotion and have passed it along to the appropriate department for going forward. Keep in mind, billing starts when a line is added and if it’s outside of the 30-Day Risk-Free Guarantee we’re not able to add a promotion retroactively. Thank you.

  19. Larry says

    $5/mo for 20 months. Seriously? That’s your promotion?

  20. Brenda says

    This is a little frustrating. I just added 4 new lines in August, no one mentioned anything about an upcoming ‘special’ or I might have waiting. I’ve been a customer for over 10 years now, but I’m feeling a little hosed at the moment. In addition, I ordered a new phone which we received at the end of August and it still is not working. My Grandson has been without a phone for about three weeks now.
    Hopefully it will start and activate with the last recommendation of letting the battery die completely. UGH!!

  21. Ginny Andersen says

    We are thinking about switching from Verizon to consumer Cellular! How do we get one of your representatives in target to help us switch our phones over ? We need help doing the switch over ? Thank you

  22. Nicole says

    Please confirm if AT & T and OR T-Mobile will put at priority there own customers directly with them if there is a outage or other reason, over the 2nd party of those of us who are on Consumer Cellular? I do not want to risk not having coverage being with Consumer Cellular if that is a possibility and a 2nd class customer which Consumer Cellular instead of directly with QT & T or T Mobile there there is the capability for my cell service to be cut because of that. Has either AT & T or T Mobile made a commitment in writing to CC that there will be no prioritization to those directly with them or with Consumer Cellular?
    I need to know this before I make a decision.

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for taking the time to post, Nicole. Our customers received the same network prioritization as customers through AT&T and T-Mobile directly as part of our agreement.

  23. Sandy Varrieur says

    We have been customers for years now (2 lines) and have been really happy. I want an iPhone 12 or 13 and my husband will take over my iPhone 11. Can I buy the iPhone from Apple and it will work with your system, since you don’t have any available or do I have to buy it from CC. Thanks for your help. Just a note, we have never had issues and are really happy with the service.

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Sandy, if you want to purchase an iPhone from Apple directly it will just need to be an unlocked, GSM-compatible model. We aren’t able to guarantee compatibility, but iPhones will generally work if that criteria is met.

  24. JAY SULLIVAN says


    • Hi Jay, thank you for your post. I’m sorry to hear about this negative experience you’ve had with getting service set up. It may be that we are needing some information for your transfer which is what is holding up your activation. If you’re having trouble with reaching us over the phone, we do offer our chat platform which can be accessed here and we’d definitely like to look into this more and help get you up and running.

  25. Tom L. says

    I’m about ready to make the switch… I currently have AT&T, will I need a new SIM card from you before the number is ported?

  26. John Wesley Tucker says

    Thinking about the zte home service. Just want to know if you can connect all house phones to it and have unlimited minutes on it and at what price.

  27. Rick Yearout says

    Received CC’s letter f notice to upgrade phne for $60. Dn’t do it if you have a phone that already is 4G, 3G, 2G cmpatible. $G will be around for about 10 more years and utilizes Dynamic Spectrum sharing DSS, which shares available spectrum between 4G LTE and 5G devices. DSS provides improved coverage for 5G devices and greater longevity for 4G LTE devices. Yes, 2G is gone and 3G will be phased out soon. But you don’t absolutely have to buy a new 5G phone yet.
    CC tells me providers are phasing out 3G, which my current phone uses, underlined, and includes, “unfortunately this means I, and 3G cellphones users on all carriers across the country will soon be unable to make or receive calls withour upgrading to a newer phone that is 4G or 5G compatible.
    Don’t be misled by the wording. On your phone, go to settings>more>mobile networks and verify what your phone supports.
    You most likely have 3G and 4G to choose from, or AUTO 2G, 3G, 4G, which is good for nearly 10 more years. Save your $60 for Christmas money.
    The CC letter leaves out the facts explained above.
    Furthermore, it is misleading to say my phone can use 3G, OH NO!. But does not mention it ALSO uses 4G. No worries for years due to dynamic spectrum sharing.

    • Hi Rick, thanks for your post. Keep in mind, not all 4G LTE devices are VoLTE-capable, and not all VoLTE-capable phones are compatible with VoLTE on the networks we use. If you have any questions or concerns about your phone, feel free to give us a call at 800-686-4460 or you can also chat with one of our agents here.

  28. Linda Smith says

    Looking to switch from Verizon to CC. I also need to buy a new phone. I would like to stay with an IPhone rather than an Android system. I would also like to not spend a fortune. Can I buy a phone just anywhere or do I buy one from CC?

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Linda, we have affordable options here. However, if you want to purchase an iPhone elsewhere it will need to be an iPhone 6 or newer, unlocked, and GSM-compatible model. Please keep in mind that we cannot guarantee compatibility for all phone models, but we generally have good experiences with iPhones.

  29. Patti says

    I am a new customer, just finished my first month however I do not have an invoice. I see that my balance is zero but I would still expect to see an invoice??

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Patti, it can take a few days for your invoice to generate and be mailed or emailed to you, depending on your invoice preference. We can also verify your billing if you give us a call at 888-345-5509 or chat with us here.

  30. Anne Butterfly says

    What are you hours of telephone service? I was put on hold for 51 min this morning. I’m old (82) and can’t afford to lose that much time of my life to wait for CC’s assistance. Is there a better time to call? Also, how do I cancel my service. Email, letter, etc?

    • Hi Anne, thanks for your post. We understand that the wait times are frustrating for our customers, and we are diligently hiring and training new agents to get this resolved for our customers. This process can take time because we want to make sure our agents are properly trained to provide the best customer service possible, and we appreciate your patience during this time. We’re sorry to hear that you’re wanting to cancel service. To do so you will need to give us a call at 800-686-4460 or chat with one of our agents here.

  31. Jane says

    I switched my 3 lines from T mobile to CC on 9/25/21, when can I get $300 rebate?

    • Hi Jane, thanks for your question! If you signed up during the promotion, then it will be applied to your account. Keep in mind that this is a credit applied to your invoices in $5 increments for each line for 20 months.

  32. Jim Dunn says

    I decided to add a home phone line with your ZTE device. I was shocked to learn that you’ve upped the price almost 60% in the past few days – $50 to $71. That’s quite a price increase. Especially, along with the poor customer service, hard t swallow.

  33. HAL SMITH says

    How do I cancel that Allstate Road Service? In one place on your web site it says that cost is $3 per month and another place on the same web site it says the cost is $5. HOW DO I GET RID OF IT? I DON’T WANT IT, and I don’t want to pay the $5 you have been charging me.

    • Hi Hal, thanks for your post. The Roadside Assistance option is not active on your account, the $5 is actually the protection plan for your phone that protects it in the case that it gets broken, wet, or something happens to it outside of the one-year manufacturer’s warranty. If you’d like to have that canceled, give us a call at 800-686-4460 or chat with one of our agents here for further assistance.

  34. Paul says

    Is the wireless home phone base available through Target?

  35. Bill says

    Hello.. if I use the “referral” email link sent to me from an existing Consumer Cellular customer, I’m currently a Verizon Wireless customer, to switch to Consumer Cellular, will I still receive the $5 credit for 20 months ($100 for each new line offer)? Will the current Consumer Cellular customer who referred me, still receive a one time $10 referral credit? Thank you.

    • Hi Bill, great questions! If you sign up before 10/31/2021 then you will get that promotion applied to your account, and as long as you let us know that person’s Consumer Cellular phone number, we can get the referral credit applied to their account.


    Hello. I don’t see the $100 ($5 per month) is being credited to my bill for my new line.

    • Hi Alan, thanks for your message. Checking in on this, it looks like your account hasn’t generated an invoice yet. You will see the credit listed on those invoices rather than on the account, but I do see the promotion is listed on the account for you, for sure.

  37. Tom Quinlan says

    Hi, I have been a customer for some time now, wanted to upgrade a phone (iphone) to a newer one as the battery is an issue. I had looked at iphone SE’s last week, my wife thought i needed a larger one which are $$ so I held off, then back to SE’s you had for $250 – but in the interim they went up to $399?? so now can i use a used phone – what are requirements. unlocked and a phone from AT&T or T-mobile?

    • Hi Tom, thanks for your question! If you can find a phone that is unlocked from the provider, is GSM-compatible, and VoLTE capable, it may work on our network. We can’t guarantee compatibility for all models, but we’ve had good experiences in the past with iPhones switching over as long as the mentioned criteria is met.

  38. MaryG says

    I just started a new account with CC and took advantage of the $100 discount offer. That $5.00 credit showed on my original bill when I paid it. I noticed, though that there isn’t a $5.00 credit listed on the recurring charge set up on my account. Will it show up later?

    • Hi Mary, thanks for your question. The discount will show up on your invoices as a special discount usually found on page two. If you don’t see it listed there when your invoice generates, let us know and we’d be happy to look into that for you.

  39. James Inghram says

    I added a line September 16 and have not seen a credit for the $100 as yet. What is the problem?

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for posting, James. The credit is issued in $5 increments, and you can see it detailed starting on page 2 of your invoice. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call at 888-345-5509 or chat with us here.

  40. Jason says

    Is visual voicemail available with your service please?

  41. Steve says

    Exactly how can visual voicemail be added to an account “as a feature that can be used”?

  42. Lost in Communication says

    Before choosing CC in major cities, such as Philadelphia PA, how can a potential or current customer know which cellular tower is more dominant in the market/field and which would be more effective? Since CC uses both AT&T and T-Mobile which one is used more so by CC and of the two which one has a greater history of calls lost while driving?
    It is more difficult to concentrate on both driving and talking verses stand/walking and conversing but just as equally discouraging. CC must be forthright in revealing information for both potential and current customers of the usage of towers that are not of theirs of large metropolitan areas. Thank you.

    • Hi there, if you’re having trouble with service, we would be happy to look into this to help with this. Our SIM cards are sent based on your location to see what the best service connection will be for your home area.
