There are hundreds of options out there, so we’re sure you’ll find the perfect option to suit your tastes. If you run into any issues, we’re happy to help walk you through it at 888-345-5509.

    This would be my first smartphone (at 70 years of age) and I am concerned about the screen resolution at 854×480. Without actually seeing the phone in person is there anyway I can see a sample of the screen resolution? Thank you.

    reply to Steve

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Great news, Steve. You can see a version of the phone in person at your local Target or Sears store. To find a location near you, try our Store Locator tool here. We also offer a 30 day Risk-Free Guarantee for each device, so you can give it a try first. Then if it isn’t the best fit for your needs, we’ll be happy to help you choose a different option. Thank you for taking the time to post, and let us know what you think of the Avid 828!

        Thanks for your reply Ashley. When I went to Target the Consumer Cellular phones were simply hanging on a rack with a lock on the rack so I could not see the phones. I thought there would be a kiosk with a person there to sell the phones but no such luck. Just thought I would pass along the information to maybe help other customers.

        reply to Steve

        • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

          Thank you for telling us about your experience, Steve. In most Target stores, there are staff members who can help answer any questions you may have.

        How long has the ZTE Avid 828 been on the market? I cannot find any reference to it on any website. Thank you.

        reply to Steve

          Thank you for posting your questions, Steve. The ZTE Avid 828 has been available to our customers since July 10th, but we can’t speak to other locations that are offering the same device.

    I purchased the Samsung S5 from ATT and am still paying on it.Would I be able to use this smartphone if I switch to Consumer Cellular?/Vivian

    reply to Vivian

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Great question, Vivian! In general, phones used previously with AT&T are a great fit with our SIM card. You’ll want to make sure that you have AT&T unlock it before you switch to our service, then all you will need is one of our SIM cards. We can’t guarantee that your SIM card will work until we try it, but many customers who were previously with AT&T had a seamless transition. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have about our service or our SIM card at 888-345-5509. Thank you for taking the time to post, and we hope to see you as a Consumer Cellular customer soon!

  4. Mary Slatter says

    I have been to at least 6 different Target stores in 2 states and always the same Consumer Cellular display…a pamphlet and maybe a phone locked in a box…never any phones you can view or handle. I’ve also called several Sears stores with same results.

    reply to Mary

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for sharing your experience, Mary. Some stores have more robust displays available. You can try our Store Locator page here, which will allow you to see the various phones available at each store. Of course, we’re happy to answer questions for you as well at 888-345-5509. We appreciate you taking the time to post!

    Go to Sears stores. They are better than Target.

  6. Linda says

    Is there an indicator that shows when you have a voicemail? I am never aware that I have them waiting there.

    reply to Linda

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      I’m happy to help you with that, Linda. After reviewing your account, I see that you have an Avid 828. When you receive a voicemail, an icon will appear at the top of your phone to let you know that you have a new message. You can either tap the icon to check your voicemail, or press and hold the “1” key on your dialpad. We’re happy to answer any other questions you may have over the phone at 888-345-5509. Thanks for posting, and we hope you have a great day!

  7. JUDY Ashley says

    what does “hearing aid compatible” mean and how does it work?

    reply to JUDY

    • Hi Judy, thanks for your post! This is a great question, what it means is that when wireless devices are used near hearing devices (such as hearing aids), users may detect a buzzing, humming, or whining noise. The wireless phone industry has developed ratings to assist hearing device users in finding a wireless device that will be compatible with their hearing devices. It means that you would not hear the interference when you hold the phone up to your ear and you’re wearing a hearing aid. For some hearing aids as well, there is an option to connect the phone and hearing aid via a Bluetooth connection which may help with hearing the other person. To find out more about that Bluetooth feature we would encourage you to speak with your hearing specialist.
