Consumer Cellular

We love CC....have 3 phones (2 smart, purchased on Ebay), cost is ~$50 per month depending on usage. Can change our plan at any time....if we are at home, we choose the minimum plan. when traveling we can increase our voice minutes and data plan easily. great coverage so far.

To get an idea of how much you use your voice/txt/data, most wireless companies keep track of that info monthly and you can access it thru your account. Then, when you have to determine how many minutes you should get, you have a pretty good estimate and can find a plan that best suits your needs.

+3 on Tracfone. Wife and I have never wished for more. Yeh, it's an outdated tiny flip phone (remember when it was state of the art?) and a terrible camera, no games, no texting, no personal assistant or day planner. The sheeple think they'll luv their duzitall and some do. I don't. Got signal for yrs. inside buildings that defeated some expensive phones and expensive provider contracts. The burner "for the rest of us."

Well there you go. In an effort to avoid being mistaken for a twentysomething I ordered a big button flip (tracfone) phone for about $20. For an additional $20 for minutes we'll try it out. Not ready to dump the land line yet. When our phone line was installed Western Electric made the wire. It's amazing how big a tree that stuff will hold and still work. Raz

Raz, you can't go wrong if all you want is a convenient, barebones cell and, should you encounter a bad dead zone around your patch, it's a minimal investment in finding out. I've never thought of you as being anything but timelessly hip whatever your actual time on the planet.

Today I came across an additional alternative for cell service. AMAC (the Association of Mature American Citizens), of which I am a member, has discount arrangements with some businesses for its members. One such discount is 5% off cellular service with Club Cellular. In examining their no-contract monthly plans on the Verizon network, I found that I could save about $5/month versus our current Consumer Cellular service. Of course I would also have to buy 2 new phones, since CC uses the ATT network, so I will stay where I am for now. But I thought someone else might find it an attractive alternative, whether they wish to join AMAC (for $16/year) or not.
