A few months back, you may remember our frustration with one of the big name cell phone companies and we made the switch to Consumer Cellular. As expected, since they use AT&T lines in our area, it was seamless and we never noticed any change at all. I think we’re paying about $20 or $30 a month less than we had been paying. With our old company, and with CC, we have unlimited texts and calls but with the old company, for that extra $20 or $30, we shared 1 GB of data and for less $$, we shared 2 GB of data on Consumer Cellular. If we do go over, they just bump us up to the next level, we’re charged a bit more but we can go back down the next month. So far, we haven’t gone over but when we’re traveling, especially in Arkansas, I got close one month and almost went over. In MO, it seems like everywhere I go, there’s wifi and I can connect and safe data. Also, when going to MO, I’m usually driving and not playing on the phone. If Vince is driving, I’m messing with my phone more.
Anyway, I just got this email from CC:
What? Same price and I’m getting more data? I am a happy Consumer Cellular customer! Having 3 GB instead of 2 GB means I probably don’t even have to think about going over my limit.
It’s so refreshing to do business with a company who gives occasionally instead of always taking. I can’t imagine our old company contacting us saying they were bumping up anything without charging us more.
Anyone thinking of switching, at Consumer Cellular’s website, they have (or they had when we signed up) a map showing their coverage areas. Not everywhere in the U.S. has great coverage so, I would recommend checking that out if you’re considering switching.
