  5. Dav Vandenbroucke says

    Do you have to plug your handset directly into the unit? It doesn’t work with the house’s wiring? I’m not seeing the advantage of that.

    reply to Dav

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Great question, Dav. You would need to plug your handset base into the wireless home phone base. The benefit is that you can take the wireless home phone base wherever you go, and you aren’t tied to a landline.

  9. Cassius Lester says

    Is the cost of the base $50.00 monthly or as a one time fee?

    reply to Cassius

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for posting, Cassius. It is $50 to purchase the base, and it’s an additional $15 each month to add it to your monthly plan if you have existing service. You’ll share the minutes with all of the other lines on your account. If you like, we can answer any other questions you may have at 888-345-5509. We appreciate you taking the time to reach out today!

      reply to Ashley

      • Guy says

        If I purchase the base for $50, I assume it will be mine to do with as I wish. Why do you charge an additional $15 each month to use it? What is the difference to you if I use the base or a regular cell phone? What do I get for the additional $15 per month?

        reply to Guy

        • Hi Guy, thanks for your post! It sound like the $15 may either be your plan if you have our 250 minute plan or it could be the additional line fee if you have that line in addition to a cell phone. For further clarification on your account please call us at 888-345-5509 or you can also chat with us here.

  12. Michelle says

    I have FIOS for internet allowing me to stream with my smart TV. It comes bundled with landline unlimited phone service. How can your services help me? I have unlimited cellular with another carrier. I hear combining all services with one business isn’t a good idea incase their service is interrupted then everything goes. What do you say to that, too?

    reply to Michelle

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for posting, Michelle. We offer cellular service and a home phone option that uses a cellular connection as well. At this time, we don’t offer high-speed internet access. You can view all of our plans here, and see if we would be a good fit for your type of usage. If you like, we can also tell you about our devices and how our service works at 888-345-5509.

  13. Marsha Rodriguez says

    Hi,
    The only problem I have with consumers cellular is that they are not an internet provider!
    I switched to CC years ago and I have never been so happy with a provider like CC. The benefits are huge, the amount I’ve saved since day one is huge.
    I have recommend CC to many many people over the years and for the first time my neighbor and close friend made the switch!
    Totally forgot about the savings part for recommending but that is ok. They can’t believe how much less they are paying.
    Thank you Consumers Cellular!

    So your saying person dose not need a phone company such as cable or Verizon,all we need is cell service,an include the base,an thats same as cell an landline

    reply to Betty

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      That’s correct, Betty. Instead of having landline service, you can connect your landline phone to our cellular service with the ZTE Wireless Home Phone Base.

      reply to Nicole

  26. Sanya Ann Brown says

    I now have a ATT wireless home phone and I am completely disgusted with them! The base is older and the sim card went out. ATT can’t seem to find a way to activate a new card for the unit. I would really like to tell them to take the unit and ………. Would your wireless home phone work the same way? Unit is plugged into the wall and the phone is also plugged into the unit. Please advise?

    reply to Sanya

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Sanya, I’m sorry to hear that you’re having such trouble with your home base through AT&T. Our ZTE Wireless Home Phone Base would have the same basic functions of connecting to the wall outlet, and your phone would be connecting directly to the home base.

      reply to Nicole

  27. Jo Anna Cadle says

    I currently do not have a land line, but trying to figure out a way to use a regular home phone via cell service. Is this what this product is for? Can I use this without having a landline? It adds a cell line to my current package I have with Crickette, but gives me another number to use at home? Is this correct?

    reply to Jo

    • Hi Joanne, those are great questions to ask in regards to our home phone base. What the base is set up for is you would plug in your landline phone to the back of the base and then plug the base into a wall outlet. That way, when calls come in, they will come through the base to the phone. Instead of running on landline service, our home phone base actually runs on the same cellular network that our phones run on. You can move your landline number to a cell phone though if you would like and have service with us through that. The service would just need to remain active during that process and you would also need the account number, PIN number if there is one, and your billing information that is on file. Nothing would be added to the Cricket account though as we do not go through them for service.

      reply to Jacob

  28. Alice says

    Hello! I just ordered the base – we haven’t had a landline in 10 years but for my kids’ safety I thought it’d be good to have a phone they don’t have to find & charge.

    Do non-wireless (old-school push-button) phones work with this base? Or corded phones? If i use a wireless phone system with it the kids will misplace the phone!

    reply to Alice

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      That’s a great question, Alice! The ZTE Wireless Home Phone Base can be used with a traditional corded phone so that it can connect to our service.

      reply to Nicole

  29. jim says

    Will I still have access to my ISP (Verizon) if I install the ZTE Wireless Home Phone Service? My landline is with AT&T and that is not a problem with the internet service. And does the Actiontec (Verizon Wireless DSL Gateway) have to be “on” 24 hours a day to have
    this service?

    reply to jim

    • Nicole at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for posting, Jim. If your internet requires the phone connection to function, it will likely not work when using the ZTE Wireless Home Phone Base. This is because it allows a traditional landline-style phone and allows it to connect to a cellular network. I recommend contacting your ISP directly to confirm the information.

      reply to Nicole

  30. Jim says

    My cell phone reception is poor in my area. I get by it by going through WiFi at home. Can this wireless phone base use WiFi instead of going directly to the cell tower?

    reply to Jim

  31. Dawson Nielsen says

    What is the cost for international calling with ZTE wireless home phone base ?

    reply to Dawson

    • Hi Dawson, thanks for posting, that’s a great question! It would depend on where you are calling for the cost of minutes. You can find that information via our website here. Just so you know as well if someone from a different country then it is completely free and would just use the talk minutes like a normal call would.

      reply to Jacob

  32. Linda fisher says

    Do you ever have to use your phone Jack’s from the wall? Do I have to use a sim card? Is a sim card included in what I received in the mail w/the square home base? Can I use a cordless phone with this home phone base? Can I have 3 phones hooked to the home phone base? Can I use a phone that has caller ID? Do you pay extra for voice mail? Do I do anything w/the old wall phone Jack from the wall? Do I put an old phone Jack in the back of the home phone base & the other end of the old phone Jack in the back of my phone? I just saw a video & it never showed the back of the home phone base to see where cords/wires went. In the back in the middle there are two matching holes. What goes there? Thanks

    reply to Linda

    • Hi Linda, those are all great questions! The ZTE Wireless Home Base does not need the phone jack in the wall, all it would need to plug into would be your normal wall outlet. On the back, it has space for the main handset base to plug into and then any phones that connect to that would be able to use the base. You do not pay anything extra for voicemail, this is a free feature that we offer for our customers. You would not need to do anything with the old equipment unless you would like to go ahead and recycle it.
