New Releases Showcase Samsung Quality & Value: Meet the Galaxy J7 and Galaxy J3

We’re proud to offer a tremendous selection of phones from the respected Galaxy series, including the latest releases, the upgraded Samsung Galaxy J7 and Samsung Galaxy J3. They deliver outstanding performance and terrific value—each is priced below $200!

The sleek, new Samsung Galaxy J7 smartphone features a 5.5-inch HD display perfect for streaming video, connecting to the Internet and social media, and composing your own photos and videos. It includes 13MP front and rear cameras designed to capture great shots even with low light, and offers 1080p high definition video capture and playback plus expandable memory up to 400GB, so you can store plenty of pictures and other files without worrying about space.

  8. John B says

    It’s not the phone all the time that’s the trouble, it can also be the service you get and if they have issues with a certain type of phone. I had the top LG Android phone, guess what. It WAS NOT COMPATIBLE with CC! How strange is that and annoying.

    reply to John

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thanks for posting, John. While our SIM card can be used with many unlocked GSM devices, in some cases, devices just aren’t compatible with our service. For the best results, we recommend devices used previously with AT&T or T-Mobile, and that are fully unlocked by the previous carrier. We’re happy to review this with you if you like, so please don’t hesitate to call us at 888-345-5509 at your convenience. We appreciate you sharing your experience!

    I’ve had my J7 for about 1 1/2-2 years and love it. Before that I had Galaxy5, diferent company. So for me the J7 was easy to use.
    I wish you had a tablet, inexpensive. I use my tablet 3 and she’s slowing down, getting older now. Still plays movies, tv shows, news. Thanks CC

    reply to Debbiy

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We’re so glad to hear that the J7 is the right device for you, Debbiy! Thank you for sharing your experience here.

  13. Frank Klimaski says

    I see where CC has doubled the data plans but kept the price the same. That is great news, but why wasn’t the $5.00 plan changed to 500MB from 250MB ?

    reply to Frank

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We appreciate you posting, Frank. There are many of our customers who prefer to use our smallest Connect plan for messaging and who use just a small amount of data. And if they find themselves needing more data, they can have 2GB for just $5 more. If we can answer any other questions you may have, please feel free to call us at 888-345-5509 at your convenience. Thanks for taking the time to reach out to us, and we hope you have a lovely day!

      reply to Ashley

      • Frank Klimaski says

        Ashley, you didn’t answer the question of WHY the 250MB plan was not changed.

        reply to Frank

        • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

          Thanks for clarifying, Frank. At this time, we’re not making changes to that plan, though the other plans have been adjusted. If we can answer any other questions you may have about our new rate plans, please don’t hesitate to call us at 888-345-5509. We hope you have a lovely day!

    We are considering a switch to Consumer Cellular. If purchasing a new phone from your company, can data be transferred your old phone?

    reply to Charlotte

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We can absolutely help you with that, Charlotte! You should be able to transfer any contacts, photos, music and apps from one phone to another quite easily. There are many apps and features designed to make that process painless. We’re happy to walk you through it as well, so just give us a call at 888-345-5509 if we can assist you.

    reply to Keith

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Keith, thank you for posting. Our phones are locked to our service and they need to be active on our service for a minimum of 180 days before we can review the phone to be unlocked for use with another provider.

      reply to Nicole

  17. Rich says

    I’m thinking of switching from Tracfone in part to get a GSM quadband phone that can be used on international trips. I’m looking at your Samsung phones…would these work for me?

    reply to Rich

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for posting, Rich. All of the Samsung phones that we currently sell are Quad-Band phones. We also have international roaming available with our service, and you can find more information here.

      reply to Nicole

  18. Curious says

    I am thinking about switching to Consumer Celluar. If I do switch, can I keep the phone I have rather than buying a new phone? Does Consumer Cellular have a ‘hot spot’ app that can be downloaded? Thank you.

    reply to Curious

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Great questions! Many of our customers have used previously owned devices with our service. Most fully unlocked GSM devices can be used with our SIM card, and you can learn more about how that works here on our website. If your smartphone has a hot spot app, we can enable tethering on your account, so that you can use your device as a portable Wi-Fi hotspot. We’re happy to answer any of your other questions at 888-345-5509 at your convenience. Thank you for reaching out to us, and we hope to speak with you soon!

    I received a Samsung J7 a few days ago from Consumer Cellular.
    It is now charged. Where on your site may I find directions and perhaps a video about how to use the phone?

    reply to Elizabeth

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Congratulations on your new phone, Elizabeth! If you’re ready to get to know your new device, be sure to visit our Videos and Manuals page here. You’ll find step-by-step videos and the manual for your phone. And of course, you can always call us with questions at 888-345-5509. Thank you for posting today!

  21. Sue Rumsey says

    I was looking at a Samsung J7 phone at Wal-mart. Is this the same as the one you are speaking of? I’m considering changing to CC. What do you mean by unlock and locked phones?

    reply to Sue

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We appreciate you posting, Sue. Our model of the Samsung Galaxy J7 may also be available at other locations, though we can’t guarantee that those will work properly with our service. For a device to work well with our SIM card, it will need to be fully unlocked by the original carrier, so that it can be used on our network. If a device is locked, it will only work with the original carrier. You can learn more about how this works here on our website. If we can answer any questions you may have, or tell you more about the J7, please don’t hesitate to call us at 888-345-5509. Thanks for reaching out today, and we hope you have a wonderful day!

    Giving the many health resources built into the Apple Watch 3 does Consumer Cellular have any plans to support it?

    reply to Ed

      Hi Ed, while we don’t have support for the cellular function of the Apple Watch 3, it can still be used with our iPhone using the Bluetooth connection.

  23. Terri Frazier says

    I have an appointment set up on Tuesday July 23rd at Target for someone from your company to come out and set up a new phone I am buying, to transfer old data over to the new phone. J7 is the phone I am buying, do you have a newer phone than this that I can purchase at a monthly price. The web site says you sell Galaxy S8 and S9. Thank you, Terri

    reply to Terri

    • Hi Terri, thank you for your post! The Target you are visiting may have other options for the phones, but you would need to check their inventory. Otherwise, you are welcome to order the phone and have it shipped to you from us directly and then take it to Target for assistance with getting it set up.

    So yesterday I purchased the J3 for my wife, of course that was not a good idea and she would rather have better model. Will we be able to return it when it arrives and get another one?
