Michael Sand Cape Coral, FL

I recently dropped a line for my granddaughter after she graduated from college. I was told my new bill will be $63. I got a bill for $79. I opened a cht with a representative to straiten out the bill. I got the runaround. The I asked for the code so I could take my paid off phone with me. Didn't get it. Now I have to buy a new phone.

My wife and I got seperate accounts to get the 35 g unlimited for each of us. No longer needed that much data so Icalled to add her to my account. Over an hour of b.s. before they would add her, without making it two plans on my account and a cost of over $100. Yes we will be changing carriers.

Absolutely the worst company ever. Do not move your service here. I've only been with them about 7 months and it's been a nightmare month after month. I have 2 phones. One I keep the data turned off and they constantly say I over use my data. There is no possible way. I even took screen shots from my phone to prove it. They are flat out liars

I had consumer cellular service a couple of years ago and was very dissatisfied with the service. After I canceled the service, I went through hell in order to get consumer cellular to release my telephone number. I would suggest that consumers avoid this company.

Don’t do it - DO NOT ACTAVATE WITH THEASE PEOPLE- rude and belligerent service, and hours On hold !!! Better Verizon or AT&T To save $10-15 and have to deal with these people.. I don’t know if it’s worth all that. True, they did have good costumer service in the past. But that is definitely not the case anymore.

I wanted to change carriers to consumer cellular but I couldn't get the service were I live. They ran a $30.00 charge to make sure your bank we let them pull money out of your account. The person said that the $30.00 would be refunded but they have been taking $24.72 for 7 months form my bank account and I DON'T have a phone with them.

My parents had consumet cellular one phones they were told that their bill would be 20.dollars a month come to find out it was over 40.00 . My parents are on disability and retired. When they told me I switch them to Spectrum and their bill is 14.00 a month I would not recommend consumer cellular to anyone.

This company is awful in a million ways, which you’ll know if you take any time to read about them, but I just want to point out that they will refuse to port your number to another carrier so be very sure that you want to use them forever or change numbers.

Consumer Cellular are Crooks. They offer one price, but later charge much higher. They claim no contracts. I told them to close my account- they continued to charge me. These crooks also don’t have the data coverage they claim. Avoid at all costs!

It took for ever just get started. They lied about being able to keep my old phone and number. Had to go through 2 different sim cards, numerous calls to customer service and they still get everything done. I would not recommend Consumer Cellular for my dog. Worst phone service of all time

Extremely disappointed. Ordered and paid for a phone a week ago. Paid for expedited service. Phone hasn’t been received and customer service is beyond useless. They were actually rude and condescending. Maybe it has to do with my being a senior?

Awful company, so many things wrong with this company there is not enough room to state it all. No notification of a voice mail, person calls you it might show up or it may not. Don’t waste your money.

BUYERS BEWARE . The thirty day "No risk" return will not apply if you purchase your phone from some one other than Consumer Cellular directly. I made my purchase at Target and found on trying to return it at twenty-two days that the Target return policy ( twenty days) applied so I am stuck with a phone. Customer Service was of no help.

Eight months ago I cancelled and two months after that they were still sending me invoices. I finally paid to get rid of them, and now they are still sending me a bogus invoice. Their service was horrible, their coverage was horrible, and their billing is crooked. Stay away from this company and avoid some aggravation.

Lousy reception, lousy transmission, extremely limited coverage (don't believe their advertising), texts are not received or sent and just try to get them on the phone, you'll be subject to endless advertising and when that's over you'll find you are 48th in line to talk to someone.

After 3 trips to the Tech Desk at the Target in Glendale, Colorado, I was still unable to get switched from AT&T. Trip 1: I was told my AT&T PIN wasn't accepted. Trip 2: I was told my Galaxy S6 was "locked". Trip 3: I brought in the unlock code from AT&T and was told the CC person "didn't show up today". I'm done.

I have had the service for a little more than 2 weeks and this is the worst service by far. It reminds me of when cell phones were just becoming popular. Lots of dropped calls and unable to send or receive texts consistently. I'm firing them and going with a different service. They suck!

Buyer beware I never even opened the SIM card because I did not need to activate any phone on consumer cellular yet I was charged almost $35 they said once I purchased the SIM card it was activated. So not only did I give from $5 for the card I gave them $35 for absolutely nothing

After many years, CC jacked-up my plan to $75. I saw my wife was using her phone a lot, so I thought it (unlimited) was OK. When I checked, it turns out my average bill should have been $45. I called CC for a rebate, they said "We cannot). So I SO WITCHED TO sPECTRUM. wATCH YOUR PLAN. tHEY RIPPED ME OFF FOR OVER $700.

I just received my first invoice. I was quoted $92.00 per month in writing. The invoice was $102.00. My quote in writing did not include taxes and fees. I left AT-t and their quoted price was exactly what I paid.

I dumped this outfit a couple of years ago due to their completely incompetent tech support. My wife chose to stay with them. Eventually, she needed a replacement phone, with a extra-cost warranty, which they now will not honor. I have since learned that ANY company recommended by AARP or Consumer Reports is to be AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS!!!

Company would not refund money when my mom died. Charged the time used for calling to cancel. Never answers call to cancel on hold for hours. Had to use menu to add service to finally talk to customer service. I would give customer service a zero star if I could.

Where is the 0- Star Rating? To give this pitiful company a fraction of a star is over rating them. If you live in Florida their coverage is weak at best. They offer no resolution to problems and continue to apologize for their scam artist company. Never Again,

3 sets of SIM cards, and $135 later it still doesn't work. They make setting up wi-fi calling impossible which means if there is no cell service on the network they pick for you, there is no service. Also, make absolutely certain that your service is canceled when you cancel it.

Money hungry company that preferred to lose a long time customer over $4.65. On top of it they have an automatic upgrade system which causes your bill to go up without your consent. Customer service people usually sounded very nice till after I paid my last bill and they overcharge me with no solution to the problem. Never again.
