Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because:I did receive the emailed response and shipping label from Consumer Cellular; however, by the time I received these items, I had already shipped the item back to them (PER THEIR INSTRUCTIONS), at my own expense The cost for postage and insurance was $ I have attached a copy of the receipt from USPS for this charge and would appreciate them crediting this amount back to me, along with the refund of the taxes originally paid for the phone ($89.00).P.S While their email states that they have tried repeatedly to contact me, I have received no such messages from them Again, it was per their instructions that I return-shipped this item Sincerely, [redacted]

Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because: This is ridiculous! I am years old and do not appreciate being taken advantage of! I returned the new phone you sent me because I didn't ask for you to send me a new one I asked for a refund I DO NOT HAVE SERVICE WITH YOU! I discontinued my service back in January because you would not replace my phone that I could not use and I needed a cell phone for emergencies! A refund is the only solution to this issue If you go back and look at my service time with you, you will see that I hardly ever used the phone to start with Just give me my money backSincerely, [redacted] have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID [redacted] , and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me Thank you for such an expedient response and taking care of this matter and thank you to consumer cellular for taking care of this matter, my faith is restored in the company .Sincerely, [redacted] [redacted] Dear, We have been in touch with the customer to explain the situation and to give him optionsThe issue is that a customer is only allowed to have a max amount of lines on their accountWith the current five, adding more would go over that limitWe gave the option of cancelling the existing lines now so we could order more, going to a retail partner and getting SIM cards so we could cancel the old lines and activate the new ones at one time, or we can send out SIM cards two at a lineEach time they get two, we will cancel two lines and activate two linesTwo cards are currently on the way to the customer and once he has those we’ll start the process of moving lines aroundThank you for contacting us regarding this complaint and allowing the opportunity to respondSincerely, TINA G [redacted]

Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because:While I understand that the resolution specialist sees my return as accepting a return of a damaged phone, I returned the phone because they sent me a defective, damaged original phone in the first place Any further damage is really meaningless because it was a defective phone when they sent it to meHow can a defective phone be “like new” when it was sent defective? I’m frustrated that there is no acknowledgement that this was a phone that had never worked correctly and that there are shipping issuesThe first calls in the first days of service (11/15/– 12/6/17) and the additional calls should document that the phone was defectiveThis averages more than call/day! The sound was distorted and muffled, so bad that often I couldn’t understand what the person was trying to say to me This even happened on several calls to CC I patiently spent several weeks troubleshooting with their reps – which I asked them to document: multiple sim cards sent, reloads of software, changing phone settings, changing physical locations with the phone, and making comparative calls with another iphone At one point I even called Apple support staff that confirmed that the phone needed to be sent in for hardware repairs.I find it interesting that on the site, a similar complaint (12/21/17, p9, second complaint listed) also details a rejected phone return, lens scratches, and shipping issues In this case CC honored the warrantee and paid for the defective phone and the phone was returned to them I would request a similar resolution, and acknowledgement of: I was sent a defective phone, reported on the first and multiple calls after activation, and continued with troubleshooting on numerous calls until the phone was returned to CC on 12/18/ Shipping issues were discussed with representatives that all three shipments lacked cushioning material around the phone, allowing the phone to bounce around in the larger box during transit, and damage and cuts to the third returned phone shipment box and missing enclosures The CC Rep initiated sending me a CC replacement phone #to replace the original defective phone I was also sent a second replacement phone #because the first replacement phone shipped was also defective I complained to the rep (asked her to document) that I was not accepting her offered third replacement phone because of the deficient packaging of their shipped phonesI bought my third phone directly from Apple, expecting a refund for CC’s original defective phone Similar complaints and issues have been documented on The dispute with Consumer Cellular, for the $charge was for the original phone which we were forced to pay CC to resume phone service so we could port our numbers to a different carrier.The rejection of the return and a refund because of a lens scratch with all of the above information and documented history is ludicrous and unacceptable If the “100% no risk guarantee” nor the CC warranty is not honored, it’s forcing me, the customer, to pay for CC’s defective phoneI want to return the defective phone, and be refunded the $ Sincerely, [redacted]

Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because:It is not a responseIt does not present any resolutions to the problem, it just reaffirms what was already stated in my complaintAlso their response leaves out some key and obvious issuesNot the least of which is that I placed an order for a protection plan from Apple though Consumer Cellular, so I was under the impression that the phone that I ordered was protectedWhen speaking to the Consumer Cellular representative with whom I placed the order, there was a verbal contractIt's not right when you make a contract with a company and you break that contract that company will go through a lot for you to pay retribution, but when a company breaks a contract then they just ignore you Sincerely, [redacted] ***
