    Got my new phone and wanted to watch the videos to help set it up, but can not find it. The address you give will not open..
    I also wanted to start adding names and numbers, but can’t do that either.

    Ashley, first when ever I call you help line, you’re unable to get in due high call volume? I sent several emails which were to be answered in 24-49 hrs ,never heard from you guys. I have two lines and one flip phone and one smart phone . I noticed this month I received message that my data plan needed update, I use very little on my flip and daughter doesn’t use that much. When checking into this I notice that every night at 12 midnight I get hit on her phone with all kinds of data huge amounts, what’s this all about. I updated plan and thought I would also receive 1200 minutes of time, but its the same, why. Please response to this as I’m not a happy person and ready to switch to another company.

    reply to joe

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We apologize for any confusion, Joe. I’m glad to see that our customer support team was able to answer many of your questions yesterday. The data question is a common one. When you see large data usage amounts like that, it usually has to do with apps updating. You can prevent this by keeping Wi-Fi turned on at all times. Data usage is also reported by the towers in batches, so you likely didn’t use all of that data at once. You can prevent data from being used at all by turning it off. To do so, go to the Settings app, then to Data Usage. Then slide the button to Off. If you would like to limit the data used, go back to Data Usage then select the menu in the top right corner, then tap “Restrict background data”. Thank you for reaching out to us, and if we can assist you with anything else at this time, please let us know. We hope you have a great day!

  6. Patricia Miles says

    Hi – I am interested in adding a line but want to know if a second line can have it’s own phone number or must I use the number on my account? Also, can the number for the second line be transferred from a non-Cellular One account?
    Thank you

    reply to Patricia

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Great question, Patricia. If you add a line to your account, it will have a different phone number than the other phones you already have. We’re happy to give you a new phone number or to transfer a number from a previous provider. Just give us a call at 888-345-5509 when you’re ready and we’ll get that taken care of for you. Thank you!

    Hi everyone out there,. I just wanted let you all know that i had got my first phone in July, 2012. I am very happy with my phone. I got a Motorola WX345 a flip phone. This phone works everywhere you go, which i find that amazing! I used this phone until a couple of months ago that i wanted to upgrade to a smartphone. So i did that. I got me a Moto E 2nd Generation With 4G LTE. I also love this phone, it is easy to understand and to know where everything is at. I always still have my flip phone, that phone is still working and good as can be. I thank Consumer Cellular for joining into there family. The price is so affordable. And i am on the $40 talk and text, $10 for 3000 text messages, and 500 MB… And i am always on my phone all day, and still i don’t go over or close go over my minutes. So i am one happy and good customer. I never missed any bill payments! Never be late! I love you Consumer Cellular, Thank you for having me as a customer……. Jesse.., Colorado

  13. Judith says

    Setting up new phone. So disappointed that I waited over an hour to get through on my first day with the agent saying, caller I cannot hear you, I’m disconnecting! Todate, I cannot transfer my contacts over to the new phone, because the sim cards are different-one is iphone your is motorola. I want to add internet service and got stuck on page asking me to choose the kind of account; POP3,IMAP,Exchange. So you see, I have quite a few issues. Please help

    reply to Judith

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We’re sorry to hear that your experience with us hasn’t been ideal so far. I’m happy to help you! First, your Moto G comes ready to use with an app called Motorola Migrate. This can help you transfer your contacts from your iPhone without having to use the SIM card. You’ll need to have your old phone in hand and connect to Wi-Fi, then download the Motorola Migrate app to your iPhone. Then the app will walk you through transferring all of your information. As for setting up an email address, it depends on the type of address you want to transfer. If you have an account for work that uses Outlook or similar, choose exchange. Otherwise, you can choose Pop 3 or IMAP for accounts such as Yahoo or Hotmail. If you run into any issues, we’re happy to help you at 888-345-5509. We look forward to helping you, and thank you for reaching out to us!

  14. Andy says

    I am thinking about switching to the IPhone 6S. Which of your plans, which includes voice, text and data would fit the average consumer on this device and what would be the cost of the package? I am asking about an average – not it depends on how much you use as an answer. Thank you.

    reply to Andy

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Andy. Our plans are designed to be customized to your needs, and can be viewed here. For example, $25 per month can give you 250 minutes, 3,000 text messages and 500MB of data. If you would rather have more time to talk and don’t plan on spending much time online without Wi-Fi, $25 can get you 750 minutes, 1,500 text messages and 150MB of data. We’re happy to help you find the right plan if you call us at 888-345-5509. We’ll ask you some questions about your current cellphone usage, then find the option that would be the best fit. We appreciate you taking the time to post today, and look forward to speaking with you!

  15. denise galanek says

    My mother needs a phone. Can she use my old one? My phone is a t-mobile phone under my sister name.

    reply to denise

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      It’s possible that your mother can use your old phone, Denise. In general, unlocked GSM phones work well with our SIM card. You’ll want to check to make sure your phone is unlocked first, which can be done by your previous carrier. Just give us a call at 888-345-5509 to get started, or you can find our SIM cards on our website and in Target and Sears stores. We’re sure that we can find a plan that will work well for your mother, so thank you for taking the time to reach out to us today!

  16. Jean Cooksey says

    Can my husband transfer using his trackphone?

    reply to Jean

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Jean. Depending on the type of phone your husband is currently using, our SIM card may be a good fit. It works best with unlocked, GSM phones. The only way to know for sure is to test our SIM card with his phone. You can find it here on our website. We can also get a SIM card sent to you at 888-345-5509, or you can find one at your local Target or Sears store. If you have any questions about using our SIM cards or about our service, please feel free to give us a call. We appreciate you posting today and we hope to see you as a customer soon!

    reply to George

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, George! We do show the days remaining in your billing cycle in our app. It’s under the green bars showing your usage. I’ve passed your feedback regarding a clear date on to our development team, so thank you for sharing. We’re always looking for ways to make our app experience better for our customers.

  18. Colleen Harris says

    I am getting a lot of annoying calls, such as selling, give away, school app. I have never given my # out, Am I being charged if I do not answer the call.

    reply to Colleen

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      That sounds frustrating, Colleen! If you send calls to your voicemail box, you won’t be charged for those minutes. Checking your voicemail does use minutes from your plan, so we recommend using a home phone or other line to do so. In the meantime, be sure to register your phone number at http://www.donotcall.gov to reduce the number of unwanted calls. If we can assist you with anything else at this time, we’re happy to do so at 888-345-5509. Thank you for reaching out to us today!

  19. joseph wright says

    I was looking at my invoice for several months, I notice the same reocurring monthly fee of $25.00. Also the plan I have is only $23.75. Then there’s socall AARP discount of which amounts to $1.25. the same amount for the service. My question is, how can you offer a discount when a all that has happen is your’re reimbursing what has been over paid.

    reply to joseph

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      I’m happy to clear that up, Joseph. The recurring $25 charge you are seeing is the basic plan. Then you have the AARP discount subtracted and the rest are the taxes for your area. Taxes can vary depending on where you live, and unfortunately, we don’t have any control over the amount. If you like, we can go over your most recent invoices with you over the phone at 888-345-5509. Just give us a call at your convenience. We appreciate you taking the time to post and we hope you have a great day!
