We've had Consumer Cellular service for over a year and have no complaints. In fact, if your usage is about to go over the limit of the plan you are currently on, they will email you an alert so you can upgrade your plan prior to the billing date. This allows you to avoid the high per-minute charge you face if/when you exceed your current limit.

     The lowest usage plan runs about $17 per month. Bills come by email. Can't beat it.

Consumer Reports rated their customer service very highly. Apparently this is all very subjective.

"Consumer" Cellular

It sure looks like the AARP doesn't check out how good the companies behind its many "special offers" are.  I just got their mailing about this cell company I never heard of, and found this much negative info in about a minute:

Users' opinions are highly polarized, but the very negative ones (rating of 1 or 2) are about equal to those giving it a 4 or 5.  Not exaclty what you want to hear about a cell company.  So how much did they bribe the AARP to get 'em to front this offer?

Personally, I've had no trouble in 1 1/2 years with the $30/mo prepaid Straight Talk service, using Verizon's network and one of the few recommended as a good cheap buy by Consumer Reports.
