Live Inspired – Sharing Words of Support

When somebody feels inspired, it makes all the difference in the world. Our customers provide the spark that encourages us to do our best work every day. In their honor, we recently pledged $2 million to the Knight Cancer Foundation on behalf of each and every one of them. Cancer touches the lives of everyone, and we optimistically look forward to the day when we stop it in its tracks. As a result of our pledge, we’ve met even more people who have inspired us as they work on the front lines of the battle against cancer.

With our pledge and others, the foundation met its fundraising goal. Naturally, this called for a celebration. This summer we’re launching our campaign, Live Inspired, to share that positive energy with our customers and everyone else.

So what does Live Inspired mean? And, how does it work? We’ve developed a special website where we’ve placed a series of inspiring images and quotes. Our hope is that people will find one of these images and messages that speaks to them. Then, they can share them with friends and family to encourage and inspire them.

To get started, please visit

From there, you can view 50 inspirational messages and choose one you find moving or uplifting. Please share that image on your Facebook, Google+ or Twitter page. For every 100 quotes shared, Consumer Cellular will surprise an inspiring person with a gift. This might be a nurse who works with cancer patients, a volunteer, a cancer survivor or anyone who inspires you and others.

Plus, you can nominate this special person via the website. And they don’t need to be a Consumer Cellular customer to qualify to get a gift either. It’s open to anyone! Then, spread the word, and together we’ll see how many people we can inspire! Please check out our Facebook page for updates. We’ll post more about how the gift recipients inspire us and how they enjoyed their gift.

Let’s do our part to inspire others, and support those in the fight against cancer!

  2. Renee says

    My experience with Consumer Cellular is not a good one. While the service (phone usage) is good, the customer services is not. I’ve been trying to get a refund for a phone that has been returned to CC way before the dealine, but I got charged anyway I’m getting the run around as to why I’ve been charged for the phone when I should not have and each time I call, I’ve got to repeat the situation over again. This has become very frustrating and very CC is providing unprofessonal service.

      We’re sorry to hear that, Renee. We apologize for any frustration you’ve experienced during the return process. I was able to take a look at your account, and I see that our billing department has been in touch with you and is processing the return. We’ll notify you when the process is complete so that you’ll know the issue has been resolved. Thank you for taking the time to post today, and we hope you have a good day!

    Information regarding land line phone services?

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for posting, Richard. At this time, we do not have our home phone base available for land line use. We’ll be sure to update you when we have that device again. You do have the option of porting your landline phone number to one of our devices, and we’re happy to assist you with that at 888-345-5509. It’s only $10 per month to add a line to your plan, and you can share your current plan minutes. Thank you again for taking the time to post, and we hope you have a great day!

  4. Fay says

    I read that $15.00 per month has been upgraded to 400 min. per month. Who qualifies for this? Only new customers?

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for reaching out to us, Fay. At this time, we don’t offer a 400 minute plan. Our $15 per month plan still includes 250 minutes. You can see all of the plans we have available at Rest assured, if we change our plans in any way we will let our customers know via our blog, website and other materials. If we can answer any questions that you may have about our plans, please give us a call at 888-345-5509 and we will be happy to assist you. We hope you have a great day!

  5. Bruce Kefauver says

    There’s no way I use 250 minutes a month.My phones works all the time because the battery in it goes down every day even when i’m not using it.If I take it into my computer room it works until I shut it off and you can hear it working because of the speakers but when I shut it off the speakers don’t do anything and the battery stays up.It sends data for what.

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We appreciate you taking the time to comment, Bruce. Your phone will only use minutes between the time of you answering a call or placing one, and when you press the end button. It’s important to press the end button once you’ve completed your call so that you don’t use any other minutes. A smartphone will stay on and accept text messages, update apps and perform other functions unless you turn it off. If the phone is off and connected to your computer via USB cable, you may see a battery appear on the screen. This is a sign that the phone is charging using the power from your computer. We’re happy to talk with you about any issues you may be experiencing, just give us a call at 888-345-5509. Thank you again for commenting today!

  6. Phyllis Elliott says

    I applaud you for giving back. Have you verified that the OHSU Knight Cancer Challenge is a humane charity? If not, there is a chance your gift may be used to grow tumors in caged animals instead of providing patient support or humane research such as computer models, genetics, tissue sample testing, clinical studies, etc.

    I am certain you have a personal relationship that inspired this gift. I urge you to direct the donation to the work you want to support, and specify that it not be used for animal testing.

    Thank you.

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We appreciate your concern, Phyllis. OHSU Knight Cancer Institute is a wonderful organization we are proud to support. We appreciate your feedback, and hope you have a wonderful day!

  7. Jeanne vanlear says

    I am recovering from colon cancer, six months of chemotherapy and three surgeries last year. It was great to have my cellphone in the hospital to make long distance calls to keep my family informed. I don’t use my phone a lot but it is a comfort to have it. Is there an affordable smart phone available for me? I am on a tight budget with all the doctor bills. Thanks for your service!

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      A cellphone can really make you feel secure, Jeanne. We have some very affordable smartphone options available. If an Android phone is to your liking, our Huawei Vision 2 and Moto E LTE models are powerful and cost effective. If an iPhone is more to your liking, you can get some models starting at just $50 with our EasyPay plan. This allows you to make an affordable $25 monthly payment in addition to your usage. Check out our selection at, at your local Target or Sears store, or we can help you find the right phone at 888-345-5509. We appreciate you taking the time to comment today!
