I've been with CC also for a few years now.. two lines that share up to 750 minutes, text and very limited internet (30 MB, yes MB not Gig)...

All for under $38 a month.

CC is great for people who are generally light uses of their phones, and do not stream video or use other very intensive internet services. And for people who, while generally are light uses, do have occasional spikes in usage. You can upgrade or downgrade your plan at anytime. No contract or roaming charge. Thats me - I use my cell phone hardly at all for a few months, then hit the road and use it a lot. (BTW, line 2 is used regularly)

Consumer Cellular operates on two different networks: AT&T and T-Mobile. I have found AT&T coverage good for the most part. Not as extensive as Verizon, but in the areas I go it is fine.

CC plans do go lower in cost than what I am paying so its not unreasonable to have a CC phone as a back up - one that might work on the AT&T (or T-Mobile) network when your primary phone does not.

I recently upgraded from a 5 year old 3G phone to a Moto G (gen 3) LTE phone and I am very happy with it. These phones do cost $175-$229, a cost that should be factored in. Thats an additional $3.82 a month if I keep the phone for five years. There are other options for phones of course.

This might be slightly off subject but I did see a few posts about streaming and television viewing. I'm low tech so the only streaming I do is for trout. The television viewing thing for me is not that important when camping but full timers do need something. If my roof antenna does not find a station or two to watch then I do not watch TV...however I did note that my latest junk mail delivery had another Camping World brochure that featured several roof top "dome-shaped" devices that were television receivers for Direct TV or Dish TV from the satellites....seemed a little costly but might be an answer if now that Direct TV has merged with AT$T they might offer both television, telephone and perhaps data in a package. If such a full service package was available it might be perfect for full timers living the RV life!

This high tech world is becoming too much to keep up with.
I Boondocking to escape this techno-Merry-go-round world.

Happy Camping!
