Buying Guide

Some people need a cellphone just to make an occasional call. Others want to be able to stay in constant touch with everyone, and everything, they hold dear. Our lineup of phones ensures you’ll find exactly what you need. We know the best cellphone for each of our customers is the one they’re happy to use. Which no contract phone is best for you?

Flip Phones

The Flip Phone

Affordable, reliable
and, for many, indispensable.

Flip phones cost less, so they’re great for people on limited budgets. But they also appeal to those who actually want something basic. Many of our customers, including some seniors, use their cellphones mostly just to make and receive calls. For them, having a flip phone and one of our low cost cellphone plans is a very affordable way to feel more secure when they’re out and about. With a flip phone you can also text, take pictures, set up call lists, and more. But if these features are really appealing to you—if you want to do a lot more than just talk— you’ll probably be happier with a smartphone.

The Smartphone

Keeps you in touch with all
the important things in your life.

With a smartphone, everything dear to you is in the palm of your hand, wherever you are. At home, say, in the middle of a fun text conversation with all your grandkids. Or video chatting with an old friend. Or sitting in your favorite café surfing your favorite websites. Or taking high quality photos and immediately sharing them via email. Or listening to music and podcasts while taking the dog for a walk. Or getting directions to a new restaurant. Or simply playing a fun game. Smartphones cost a bit more than flip phones, and take a little more getting used to. But the payoff for many is beyond words.

Mobile Personal
Emergency Response Device

Fall detection, location detection and
emergency response, while on the go.

With the Consumer Cellular Ally, individuals or loved ones can enjoy more freedom and security—from virtually anywhere. If there’s an emergency, the small, easy-to-wear, mobile device quickly connects them to a response team with the press of a button. Also, if a fall is ever detected, the Ally automatically locates the user anywhere within cellular network range and calls a monitoring center, where a response team can contact family or caretakers and send emergency services. Users can talk hands-free to monitoring center staff through a speaker.

Ally provides more than greater sense of safety and security—it enables proactive care. Discover a true ally with Consumer Cellular Ally.
