There are many great reasons to join Consumer Cellular, and here’s another one: we make it easy to do!
If you, or a family member or friend, are ready to switch and start enjoying our low prices and great service, here’s a handy checklist that will help you through the process.
Remember, there are three convenient ways to do it: online, over the phone, or at a Target store near you.
To get started, you’ll want the following information handy:
- Your current phone bill, to help make sure your phone number gets switched over to our service.
- Your AARP card or membership number, so you get your exclusive discounts.
- If a friend has referred you, have their name and cellphone number—you’ll each receive a $10 credit on your next invoice!
Next, you’ll need to select your monthly cellular plan:
- You can view all of our affordable, no-contract options here.
- If you’re not quite sure which cellular plan works best, just give us a call. We’ll be happy to review how you use your phone currently, and make a recommendation.
- Keep in mind, with Consumer Cellular, there are no fees to switch your plan if you find you need more, or less. And our automatic upgrades mean that if you happen to go over your plan’s monthly limit, you’re automatically upgraded to the level that covers your usage for the best price, with no overage fees.
Finally, it’s time to choose a cellphone:
- If you already have a cellphone you love, you may not even need to get a new one! With most unlocked GSM phones, you can switch to Consumer Cellular simply by replacing the SIM card in your current phone. You can learn more about this convenient option here.
- If you are looking to start with a new phone, we offer an outstanding selection of everything from simple flip phones to flagship smartphones from some of the top manufacturers in the industry. You’ll find all of our choices here.
- On many of our smartphones, you can even choose to use our EasyPay option, which let you pay the cost of your phone in $25 installments conveniently added to your monthly invoice.
And that’s really all there is to it! Our friendly, 100% U.S. based customer service team is here to answer any additional questions, or walk you through, step by step, to get your Consumer Cellular service up and running. Just call us at (888) 345-5509!
