I have the grandpad, and have never had an issue with the service. No drops or anything.

I have it, and it's cheap and works great. The signal dies in really remote places (I'm talking like large National parks, and, well, most of Montana and Wyoming). But that was it. Had it more than two years now.

I have them for over 2 years now. I'm saving a ton over Verizon and the service is just as good.

They use either at&t or tmobil depending where you're at so coverage should be pretty good.

They are a decent deal if you don't use a lot of data. If you are a heavy data user you are better off with an unlimited plan from one of the big carriers. You also don't have an option of international data buckets, so roaming abroad can get really expensive. International calling rates are reasonable. Customer service is good.

I have Verizon with one phone unlimited data and a separate WiFi hotspot device. Hot spot is my intenet access for the house and is a 15G of data before they cut you back to 3G speed. Sucks. I pay $110 a month. Hit the 3G about three weeks into the month.

I was talking with CC about switching and would save near $40 a month and get 25 GB of data on a hotspot. Have to get an unlocked phone and WiFi hotspot though.

SHOZ,
At&T will let you take an unlimited tablet account and put it in a hotspot. I think they are $30-$40 for a prepaid one.

Service can be spotty in rural areas, like northern WI. They use ATT or T Mobile networks. If in a non rural area, and you don't need unlimited data, it is a good service at a good price.

I've been using them for a few months now. No problems in my part of Iowa.

I'm old and never exceed the limited data plan. With my AARP discount costs me $25 per month.

15+ years with Consumer. Good coverage and nothing but good experiences with them. Have also purchased three phones from them at a good rate.

I have had them for some years now and couldn't be more satisfied. I started with 3gb data and they upgraded it a few times for nothing, now at 10gb.
I save $110 a month over AT&T and notice no difference whatsoever in service quality.

So you cannot get the Verizon network on Consumer Cellular correct. We have very poor coverage from the AT&T towers where we live....so they are out as a choice.

Very few carriers have Verizon except Visible, Xfinity red pocket and Total wireless.

The customer service apparently is great and geared to older population on Consumer Cellular. In laws have it and I feel bad for customer support when they call but Consumer Cellular weeds through.
