Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because: They are clearly trying their best to give me a hard time,as a customer for many years you would think they would want to keep me but its apparent they do not need the businessThey told me any kind of very thin scratch on the phone and they will reject it and send it back to you while charging you for thatThat sim card hold would not open I talked to a lady from there on the phone about getting that open and she said use a paper clip and it would not release for nothing as these were not new phones I bought from consumer cellular they were used we bought from them for eachI would bring up if I could take pictures of my phone all around and you could examine that and see if that would be refused or accepted in your terms consumer cellular? that way all around everyone would loose out on so much money for shipping? I know for regular customers it would be expensive I know companies get discountsand again I would not have even had to try and get that sim door to open if my phone was not working correctly and you sent me another one to make me try that out which didnt help at all anywayand why would you be so strict with a long time customer on a phone you have been sending stuff for me to replace and try when your not gong to resell the phone anyway as what you told me that you don't resell phones for money .? What does that hurt and whom? Your not going to resell it ? I just need a phone to work its very important for a disables person to have a working phone all the time thanks for listening Sincerely, [redacted] ***

Dear Revdex.com,Thank you for contacting us regarding this complaint and allowing the opportunity to respondMs [redacted] account with Consumer Cellular was opened 4/5/and closed as requested on 11/3/Consumer Cellular bills in arrears for monthly service and usage, meaning after the billing cycle endsBecause of this, when an account is closed, there is always a final bill for service through the cancellation dateWhen an account was cancelled before the end of the billing cycle, the final invoice is prorated only for the days the service was activeThe service dates for all charges can be verified beginning on page two of each invoiceWhen the account was cancelled, the regular monthly invoice for the service dates of 9/18/through 10/17/had already generated and $was due on 11/8/This balance was paid on 11/7/After the account was cancelled on 11/3, the final prorated invoice generated for the service dates of 10/18/through 11/3/The final balance was $and this was due and paid via autopay on 11/28/I apologize if there was any misunderstanding or miscommunication when the account was cancelledWe will certainly review the calls and address any coaching opportunities that exist, but I can assure Ms [redacted] she is not being charged for service after the cancellation date and the final invoice was correct.Sincerely,JESSICA H [redacted]

Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because my aunts address didn’t change, we only had the mail forwarded to notify all of her passingYour policy’s suck with what has to be gone through in order to close an accountWhat happens when the account goes into collections then? You then send harassing letters to my mom about my aunts account being delinquent? My aunt DIED and when she passed the account should have been deleted and closed when we notified you of her passing instead of all the stupid letters and all the wasted time we had to spend on you notifying you over and over again that she is gone and NO ONE treponsible to pay her account since she didn’t have any estateYou are still continuing to waste both our time in keeping this account open and this is a sin what your process is when someone diesI will pass the word along to any I know of how poor you treat your customers family when they are already going through enough Sincerely, [redacted]

Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because:It is apparent the training this company provides is as bad with the Technical staff as it is with the Corporate Executive Resolution Specialist (and I didn’t really see a resolution you were offering.) To state this one more time From the time you connected the replacement phone on the 23rd of December until the 2nd of January I received NO phone calls – NO text messages – had NO access to the internet If you had read my numerous complaints – this was the 1st thing I stated on EVERY call! Now if you look at my bill – during this time you will see calls that went straight to voicemail (as I stated in my calls) and text messages I did not receive (but you chose to bill me an additional $for data (that I did not use.) And yes .your techs were calling the phone as well as texting so they could verify this was not workingI understand all about the big company – you have my credit card information so there is nothing I can do about your shoddy service (or your insulting “one time courtesy credit of days service”) I CAN warn others about how you operate and hopefully save someone else from the same aggravationAnd now about the return of the phones and the cord that missed out on the last return – you acknowledged I requested return envelopes on the 15th of January today if the 22nd and I still do not have them Any plans of shipping them *before [redacted] my days are over?? Good riddance to you!! Sincerely, [redacted]

Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because: My father did not have any money, does not have an estate, and from the response of Consumer Cellular, I understand, Consumer Cellular is going to continue to send bills, and ultimately result to a collection agency, for $ My father had no money when he died, and Social Security reversed his deposit from his bank account, which in turn resulted in a negative balance I filed this complaint because I do not want mail coming to my home, my father had been on hospice since October, and if you actually looked at his account, you can clearly see, there was a small amount of usage The day of his death was one call, not the day this account was cancelled, as stated in your response letter While you indicate I am not responsible, please clarify why you would send bills to a dead person, with no money, to his daughter Obviously to obtain your so-needed $ Sending invoices that you now have been aware are not going to be paid from an estate, is now harassment, unethical and disgusting Each time I receive a piece of mail at my home is a reminder of my father's death If I need to seek counsel I will, especially for the medical attention I may need from this Consumer Cellular treating the public like this is horrible, no wonder they have hundreds of terrible reviews, your response was completely wrong on so many levels Look at his phone records He maybe made 3-short (less than minutes) since the end of September He died 11/27/ I called 11/28/to cancel his phone The most recent bill has a late fee! Your company is pathetic Sincerely, [redacted]

Revdex.com [redacted] Dear Revdex.com,Thank you for contacting us regarding this complaint and allowing the opportunity to respondAs longas the phone is in like-new condition, it should only take hours for shipping to apply the creditIfthey’re able to apply it back to the credit card, the customer should see it pretty quickly but it doesdepend on the bank’s processing timeIf we are unable to apply it back to the card, it can take a fewweeks to get a refund check to the customer.We would have no way to know that the customer did not want to use the serviceIt is the responsibilityof the customer to contact us and cancel service should they no longer want or need it.We have had numerous interactions with Mr [redacted] by email and by phoneI’m not sure why he feelslike he was not capable of reaching us because he was successful in doing so.Sincerely,TINA G [redacted] CORPORATE EXECUTIVE RESOLUTION SPECIALISTT F [email protected]
