Introducing the Moto E LTE—an Astute and Affordable Smartphone

If you’re like me, you take pride in watching your budget. So if you’ve been patiently holding out for a fast and dependable smartphone that’s aligned with your finances, I’m pleased to say your wait is over. Clearly, one of the best values we’ve seen in years at Consumer Cellular happens to be a new, affordable smartphone, the Moto E LTE from Motorola.

The Moto E LTE is worth every cent. It’s sturdy and packed with all the power and speed you’d hope for from this pocket-sized computer of a cellphone. In addition to being sweetly priced at $100, the Moto E LTE fully employs the strongest type of network, 4G LTE. This data connection speed works about as fast as your high-speed internet at home. This means you can share pictures and videos or surf the web from just about anywhere and much faster than 3G.

The Moto E LTE’s quad-core processor will keep up with your day as will its long battery life. Text, navigate, capture photos or video and share them using the latest Android operating system, a water-resistant 4.5-inch display, front and rear cameras, 8GB of built-in memory and 32GBs of expandable storage.

The Moto E LTE is offered on our website and beside our other devices in Target and Sears’ electronics departments.  Check on our Store Locator page to find the closest one to you.

If you have any questions about the Moto E LTE or getting service with Consumer Cellular, just contact us at: 888-345-5509. Or make use of our now easier to use how-to videos. Simply visit our Support page and follow along with your device at your own pace and time.

  1. Brenda Dodgens says

    I want to thank the Tech Supports Erica and Elizabeth for their excellent assistance in helping me get mine and my son’s phones working with the data. For me I am Smartphone dumb so it was great that Erica took the extra time for me to understand. Then with Elizabeth she assisted by sending info app straight to the phone as Mike’s wouldn’t work when inputting same info as mine had (identical ph). Walla! Phone data worked! Now we can get smarter with the smartphones..thank you all for your service.

  2. Tom Laughlin says

    It works fine & I am able to add contacts & send texts fine on my plan. I have a hearing aid & wanted to know if there are any special settings or things I need to change to make it work more effectively.
    The ringer is loud enough, but the actual volume seems real low & I have to hold it tight to my ear to hear things like the voice mail or somebody talking to me.

    reply to Tom

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Great question, Tom. Your Moto E LTE is designed to work well with your hearing aid, so you don’t need to adjust any settings, it will work automatically. You can adjust the system volume to be louder for certain functions by going to your Settings, then going to Sound & notification. From there, you can change the settings for media, alarm and ringer volume independently. Be sure to check out our How-To videos on the Support page here to learn more about your new smartphone. We’re glad you’re enjoying it so far, and we appreciate you taking the time to comment.

  5. Loren Pittman says

    I’m a Consumer Cellular customer. I have a Doro. I’m interested in upgrading to the Moto E LTE. I have a profound hearing loss due to age. (I am 90yrs. old.) I cannot hear callers on my Doro because there is not enough volume. Could I expect to get more sound on the Moto?

    reply to Loren

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for taking the time to comment, Loren. The Doro is a popular phone for those looking for louder volume and better hearing aid capability. The Moto E is hearing-aid compatible, but only has standard volume. You can try the Moto E LTE with our Risk-Free Guarantee to see if it is a better fit for you, just give us a call at 888-345-5509, and we will get one on the way to you. You can also find it online here, or at your local Target or Sears store if that is more convenient. Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us, and we hope you have a wonderful day!

      • Michael Frazier says

        I also am not all that thoroughly impressed by the volume available through my phone, which is Moto (in this case Moto G Ext). What solves the challenge though is to have an over the ear headphone which I can wear either when I am getting ready to make one or more calls, and sometimes I asked an incoming caller to hold on a moment while I hook up my headphones. My hearing by the way is generally not regarded as poor hearing; yes I know everyone should get his or her hearing tested. I have purchased both a wired headset and a Bluetooth headset; both of them work fine.

        reply to Michael

        • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

          Thank you for your comment, Michael. We’re glad to hear you’ve found a headset that works well with your phone. If you’re having issues with the volume on your Moto G EXT, you may need to adjust some settings so that you don’t have to use the headset exclusively. Try opening the Settings app, then going to Sound. From here, you can adjust ring volume, system volume and more. If that doesn’t resolve the issue, we’re happy to troubleshoot it over the phone at 888-345-5509. We appreciate you taking the time to post today, and we hope you have a great day!

  7. Marsha Marker says

    I love my phone, but lately we have been having a bad time with service connection. Not sure why, could it be the storms that we have been having, lately?

    reply to Marsha

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for commenting, Marsha. There are a variety of factors that can influence your coverage, including bad weather. We recommend turning your phone off, then back on again when you are having coverage issues. That allows your phone to make a new connection with the tower near you providing the best signal. This is also a good practice if you’ve been traveling or are in a different area. We’re happy to troubleshoot this issue for you if it persists, just give us a call at 888-345-5509. We appreciate you taking the time to comment, and we’re so glad you are enjoying your phone!

  8. Steve says

    We have had nothing but problems with Consumer Cellular so far. First they said we could keep our old phones. They sent us sims which did not work. Spent a day making phone calls to the carriers, only to find out we can’t use our old phones. So now we are trying to buy new phones. Can’t do it on the web page. They don’t answer the phone. A week now that we are without a cell phone to use.

    reply to Steve

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We’re sorry to hear about this experience with us, Steve. We sincerely apologize for the frustration. I was able to take a look at your account, and I see that Bradley and Amanda, our customer support team members, were able to help you resolve this issue. We’re glad to see that your new phones are up-and-running, but please let us know if there is anything else we can do. Thank you for reaching out to us, and we hope you have a great day!

    reply to Chris

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We’re very sorry for the frustration, Chris. We’re experiencing some unusually high call volume today, so we apologize for the wait time. Your service does come with a voicemail system, including a mailbox. You can complete the setup process and check your voicemail by pressing and holding the “1” key on your phone. Then, just follow the prompts. You can also view our voicemail How-To video here, which will walk you through the process. Once again, I’m very sorry for any frustration, and we appreciate you taking the time to reach out to us here. Thank you!

      I totally understand your frustration, Chris. My service is so worthless I can’t even CALL tech support! I am forced to resort to emails which can take days before I get an answer. I requested live chat and was told it is unavailable. Right now I would like to throw my phone in the Wabash River!

      reply to Jackie

      • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

        We apologize for any frustration, Jackie. I see that Christina, our customer support agent, was able to assist you via email, and that you’ve received your new SIM card. We don’t have a live chat option at this time, but I’ve passed your feedback on to our management team, and if we should offer this in the future, we will be sure to let our customers know. If you are unable to give us a call, email is the best option to reach our customer support team. Once again, we apologize for the frustration, and please let us know if we can assist you further. Thank you for reaching out to us!

    How to clear all the missed calls on the Envoy! I have 13 missed calls &my phone never rang! my phone was on. Are all the missed calls accumulated..that would block coming calls!!!

    reply to FayW.C.Moon

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for commenting, Fay. It sounds like we may need to troubleshoot the sound and ringer settings on your Envoy. Rest assured, the missed calls showing on your screen will not affect any incoming calls, they are just shown to you so that you know who has called. Can you give us a call at 888-345-5509? We would be happy to walk through your phone with you, and get to the bottom of this issue. Thank you again for reaching out to us!

  12. Ulic Smith says

    At the end of April I went to Sears and bought a new phone. It is a doro, My old one wouldn’t stay charged, it still doesn’t work. I have let it charge up for at least 8 hrs. I’m still not able to keep a charge on it. The new phone the doro, won’t turn up I am not able to hear anyone that calls me. I’ve tried to turn it up by settings for hearing aid but it still doesn’t work. The problem I have is with my old phone I purchased it back in Nov or Dec 2014,. I paid 65.00 for the old phone and am wondering why the battery doesn’t stay charged. Please help. Thank you.

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Ulic.

  14. Michael Hurwitz says

    I have a Nokia Lumia 635 smartphone. When I am away from home or anywhere where Wi-Fi is not available, I can not access the internet at all. I was thinking about saving up for a Motorola Moto E phone but I would like to be certain that the Moto phone WOULD work vis-à-vis cellular data connection. Can Consumer Cellular guarantee that the phones they sell will work wherever one happens to be?

    reply to Michael

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Michael. It looks like you’re using one of our SIM cards with your Lumia smartphone. Veronica, our customer support representative, was able to email you the data settings for your phone. We are happy to do our best, but we can’t guarantee that all services will work well with a device that isn’t ours. As to the Moto E, if purchased from us, it will be able to use your data plan out of the box wherever you may be as long as there is sufficient coverage. We’re happy to assist you with ordering one, just give us a call at 888-345-5509. You can also find the Moto E at your local Target or Sears store, or on our website here. Thank you for commenting today, and we hope you have a great day!

    I recently came back to CC, and am very happy I did. I got the new Moto e at Target on a Sunday night, called CC the next day, and got my cell number transferred from straighttalk to CC, flawlessly! It ported over in less than 1 hour. I was amazed. Great customer service all around. Your website is awesome also. Thanks CC! ps. It’s nice to save 5% also via AARP!

  17. Marianne Chase says

    I am requesting that CC add a Products Page for all devices including the “Wireless Home Base” and extra chargers. I want to convert my land line over to CC so that I can get rid of the $47.50 charge per month for the land line. I can do this and keep the cordless phones with the answering machine if I can get the Wireless Home Base device. CC could then transfer my land line number to the new CC line which would change my home phone bill to just $10.00 per month. In addition to adding a complete products page you should add a Pre-Order option if the device or phone is currently out of stock instead of my having to call CC every week to see if you have what I need in stock yet. It would be a lot less Customer Service calls for CC and customers can see everything CC carries which could also increase sales of items that “go with” the phones CC sells. Thank you to every Customer Service and Tech Support Person for doing a good job each time I have to call for help with my phones, billing statement, etc. Please make your website more customer friendly.

  21. Carl says

    It seems there is no reject list or ‘native’ way to block calls. I do not want to add a nuisance contact and dump it to my voicemail.
    Can Consumer Cellular block a number for me or must I use an app?

    reply to Carl

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Carl. We can’t block calls made to you on our end, but some of our customers have had success using apps meant for this purpose. If you try one and find it to your liking, be sure to post about it here! We appreciate you taking the time to post!

    We switched two numbers from Verizon to two NEW Motorola Moto E LTE phones here at Consumer Cellular. Thank you for the great support which included a two week trial of the actual new phones with a phone # from you before we made final decision and ported over. Would someone be able to tell me how to add a Salutation to my outgoing text messages ( thanks or Talk to you later) > Also, how do I now get rid of the MIGRATE APP, and extra APPS that I will never use i.e. Hangout?. Thank you for your help and direction

    reply to Anita

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We’re glad to hear that your transition to our service has been smooth, Anita! I’m happy to help you with these questions. First, open your Messages app and go to your inbox. Select the three dots in the upper right corner, and select “Settings”. From there, choose the “Signature” option. Turn it on, then select the “Edit” option to add your message. As for any apps you’re finished with, press and hold the app on your homescreen. You’ll see a trash icon appear at the top. Drag the app icon to the trash icon and then let go. This will remove the app. Be sure to check out our How-To videos for the Moto E LTE here, and if we can assist you with anything, feel free to call us at 888-345-5509.
