From the day we started Consumer Cellular in 1995, our focus has been on finding ways to make the best modern technology accessible, and affordable, to users over 50. That’s why we’re so delighted to introduce GrandPad, Powered by Consumer Cellular to our product selection.
GrandPad is a senior-friendly tablet that’s customized for the convenience of older users. It’s a wonderful tool for anyone who finds themselves in a caregiving role to an aging parent or grandparent; it helps your loved one stay connected to friends and family in the same electronic ways you do, but in an easy-to-use and simple to understand format.
It’s intuitive, and ready to use right out of the box. You can even personalize it by pre-loading their favorite photos, important contacts, and even songs that they love. They can receive email and send voice messages, make voice and video calls, share photos, enjoy streaming music, read the news, or play games just by touching large icons on the high definition screen. Or if they prefer, they can navigate GrandPad using the handy stylus that comes included.
One of the most essential benefits is that it’s a completely interactive tool for the whole family. A family administrator can manage the device’s contents and authorized contacts from the GrandPad Central website, providing the user with an extra layer of security against spam or other unwanted activities. Family and friends can easily send messages or photos to the GrandPad using either the website or by installing a convenient mobile app on their smartphone.

A subscription to GrandPad service is just $40 a month, and includes unlimited data, unlimited video calling, unlimited ad-free streaming music, and more.
Modern wireless technology is an effective remedy against the isolation and loneliness which so often affects our loved ones as they age. We’re excited to offer this unique device to help open up their world, and for the many comforts it can deliver to you and your family.
