Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because I believe the replacement phone should have the same year warranty as the defective phone it replacedI appreciate the business' initial action to provide a replacement phone, but in their second response, they did not give a rationale for only providing days on the replacementI was patient working with Consumer Cellular for the 1st years as we addressed continuous problems with my Moto GI finally asked for, and have now received a replacement phoneIt is also a Moto G, but a later editionThere is no logical reason that the 2nd phone would not have a year warrantyThe failure to provide one indicates to me that Consumer Cellular and Motorola have no confidence in the replacement phoneI'm willing to compromise on a month warranty in order to resolve the complaintThe extra time gives me peace of mind and costs the company nothing (provided the replacement phone is in good working order)Is months acceptable to the company? Sincerely, [redacted]

Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because: It seems like a deceptive practice because the website allows you to go in and track your usage and appears to be up to dateI know that now, for the future, but how was I supposed to know that before, that it wasn't actually up to date?Sincerely, [redacted] ***

Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because: Consumer Cellular has not adjusted the plan according to the 12/8/call made by Mrs [redacted] The plan would reduce the monthly amount to about $per monthThe billing is not reflecting that changeThat would decrease the total amount due from 12/8/Sincerely, [redacted] [redacted] Dear, Usage can be delayed for 24-hoursWhen it gets down to the last few minutes before midnight on the closing of the bill cycle, this can be difficult to gauge if a customer is coming so close in their usageOnce the bill cycle ends, we give the towers about two days to finish getting us all the usage that happened at the end of the billing cycle because of this delayThe customer has already had one bill adjustment within the last year, due to overages, and we are therefore unable to lower the cost on this invoiceThe invoice cost is $158.86, $of which has been paidThere is a remaining balance on the account of $and is due by 10/31/Thank you for contacting us regarding this complaint and allowing the opportunity to respondSincerely, TINA G [redacted]

Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because:I purchased a Consumer Cellular plan at Target, believing the man who installed it on my phone when he said it would work Consumer Cellular has disavowed any business responsibility in that good faith transaction between the seller of a Consumer Cellular plan and the buyer I called Consumer Cellular several times and wrote the CEO regarding my concerns about the failure of the service I was promised Once again, Consumer Cellular believes they are not responsible for the service that I paid for, but did not receiveThe service was not suddenly ineffective in September or November of 2017, it was nonexistent from the beginning It was only after my many attempts to use the service, and trying to understand if I was missing some instruction, and after several Consumer Cellular's attempts to identify the problem, that the diagnosis was made For a doctor to say that a cancer was never present until it was diagnosed would be negligent Yet Consumer Cellular is choosing only to recognize the time after I insisted there was a problem.Based on my experience, I realize that Consumer Cellular prefers to take money for nothing My trust in Consumer Cellular to fulfill a good faith agreement between a seller and a buyer has been misplaced, and I take responsibility for believing in what was promised The $compensation for never receiving the service I was promised in August of is, in my opinion, unconscionable Yet it may be exactly how Consumer Cellular chooses to do business with customers from AARP and Target I do not accept the response from Consumer Cellular My hope is that Consumer Cellular will see that there were and are other choices that they could make, and if they truly valued what they do, they would value the good faith that was extended to them Sincerely, [redacted]

Dear, Thank you for contacting us regarding this complaint and allowing the opportunity to respondI think that Ms [redacted] is not understanding my previous response fullyShe isn’t cut off from minutes if she hits per dayThere is a bucket of minutesIf that bucket held minutes and she opted to use the minutes in one day, that’s perfectly okWe don’t say that you can only use minutes out of the bucket per dayWhen we talk about minutes per day, we are talking about an averageIf you had a bucket of minutes and there were days in the month, on average you could use minutes per dayOf course you might use minutes one day and no minutes some days and or two minutes here and thereThat is okYou get a bucket of minutes and you use them however you wantIn regards to her billing, even if we had billed her at a full month, she would have been upgraded and would have been put on the next higher plan based on her usageWe reduced the cost of that for her by not charging her the full priceIf I was to remove the reduction that she received, she would be charged $plus tax on the second invoice instead of $plus taxThis service was used and the charges are valid and correct
