Consumer Cellular Complaint - Not Good Service - Tracfone Can Be Cheaper But Good Service
CHESTER, SOUTH CAROLINA -- Consumer Cellular is not what they advertise on service or phones. We are seniors [old folk] & AARP, retired their service has been poor. We had 2 phones 200 min, ($28 a month), one free, one bought. I bought a Nokia because out of 4 we had with other company it did much better than the others. Handicapped son died we no longer needed $90 a month phone bill. Went to Tracfone for a while then tried Consumer Cellular have cut one off the Nokia. Went back to a Trac cut the other off today. For folks like us that use so few minutes the deal is go to Tracfone. About a $60 start up cost, buy phone, double min for life of phone card and $20 min card.
Then, my next cards cost me around $10, 20 card every 3 mos, have minutes left over. If we use less than 30 min a month on 2 phones rest of time we use house or Google voice. Consumer Cellular will not get a good signal on mine when it did could not hear. They would not try to correct it, they post good reviews but not the bad ones. Prices are not exact, but close. Trac contact service has been and was great going to reactivate other Trac. Trac has a phone for around $10 on up if you like. We got one cheap, one higher. They have/did beat the heck out of Consumer Cellular in cost and service.
ALSO I am talking about low usage not sure this would be best on lot of usage so do your math. The only minor problem ever had with Trac was bought one from a box store was not compatible with our area, exchanged Trac easily transferred my cards to it when I contacted them.
