Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because:The Consumer Cellular representative that I talked to on February was not a male The Consumer Cellular representative I talked to on February was a female The female representative told me that because of the very low use of the cell phone in January and no use of the cell phone in February, she was waiving the monthly fee of $ The female representative then told me that the only charge that I would have to pay would be $ I relied on what the female representative told me and I paid the $to Consumer Cellular.Consumer Cellular did not charge my Chase credit card $on the next due date of March as they normally would have This is because its female representative waived the $monthly charge when I talked with her on February Consumer Cellular then tried to charge $to my Chase Credit card on March I disputed the $charge because of the agreement the female representative at Consumer Cellular made with me on February After Chase investigated the $charge, Chase agreed with me that the $charge was not a valid charge and it was not paid to Consumer Cellular It is obvious that someone at Consumer Cellular did not approve of the decision made by its female employee to waive the $monthly charge Someone at Consumer Cellular tried to change the decision made by its female representative when Consumer Cellular attempted to charge my Chase credit card $on March I do not owe $to Consumer Cellular and I have no intention of paying any more money to Consumer Cellular Sincerely, [redacted] ***

Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because you have chose to not do anything so I will chose to give more bad reviews on you

Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because: Those are nottttt valid charges and I owe them nothing--everything is up to date, includinggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg the disputes that I posted with my credit card company that Consumer Cellular did nottttttt list...They are the ultimate judge in determining validity of charges That is why I went to the!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sincerely, Cheryl [redacted]

Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because: First of all this company I have been with for many, many years I have found out this call was made by [redacted] who found my phone that I left in her house and why she tried calling me on it she has no clue and apparently didn't hang it up for minutes If Consumer Cellular would make the effort to check this call out, they will see it was: 1) NEVER ANSWERED AS I DID NOT HAVE THE PHONE - IT WAS IN [redacted] 'S POSSESSION UNTIL I CAME TO PICK IT UP 2) THERE WAS NO DIALOG ON THIS CALL THAT CC SHOULD BE ABLE TO VERIFY 3) THEY CAN SEE FROM ALL PHONE RECORDS I NEVER TALK THIS LONG ON A CALL! PERHAPS FIVE YEARS AGO WHEN MY MOTHER WAS IN THE HOSPITAL DYING THE CALLS TO/FROM FAMILY WERE LENGTHY, BUT OTHER THAN THAT, I NEVER TALK FOR ANY LENGTH ON THIS PHONE You can call [redacted] at the incoming number on my bill (she made the call and not me) to see there was NO DIALOG whatsoever on this call and her provider is Verizon When I first initiated my inquiry, I did think this was a solicitation call from Verizon that was incorrect After calling the number myself down the road and checking the date and realizing I was in her house and left my phone there for a few hours, I have put all the above together CC can call Mrs [redacted] to verify this if they wish, but to charge a long term customer for a minute call adding $to my bill when there was no talk on the call and apparently she answered it and never hung up, CC should 100% credit this amount and furthermore have never been as rude and uncaring as they have been To do what they have to a year old woman who has been a long term customer and always pays her bills on time, this is ABOMINABLE! And to never be abler to talk to anyone but those that answer in customer service and not be able to get a requested response from a Manager or their CEO, MrMarick in his privately held company is just inappropriate too Sincerely, [redacted] ***

Dear, Thank you for contacting us regarding this complaint and allowing the opportunity to respondThere is only one phone that I am able to take back and provide a credit forThe other phone is over a year oldI have already provided $in creditsThere are no further credits that I am able to applyThere are no further credit that I can apply

Date: March 1, First, thank you both – & Consumer Cellular – for replying to my complaint MsG [redacted] has made two offers in response to my complaint: a) to review my credit and consider my application for EasyPay, a substantial change from the company’s refusal to review my creditworthiness; and b) to cut in half the amount of time needed to establish a bill-paying history and thus become eligible for EasyPay without a credit check These offers demonstrate a willingness to resolve my complaint, and I believe that many people would consider them adequateIndeed, the credit review is one of my own suggested resolutions However, it should not take complaints to, to the FTC, the Rhode Island attorney general and Consumer Cellular’s CEO, to achieve this common sense resolution Further, the offer comes too late in terms of my personal situationI have since purchased an iPhone directly from Apple, using that company’s 12-month, interest-free payment program, which went without a hitch after I temporarily unblocked reports from all three credit rating agencies More importantly, MsG [redacted] ’s reply to does not deal with the other part of my suggested resolution – the most important part – which is to ask that Consumer Cellular desist from what I consider misleading advertising and sales as it affects other consumers in positions similar to mine MsG [redacted] does not address my assertion that I was caught in a deceptive sales practice: attracted by an offer of convenient monthly payments through the EasyPay program, I found myself excluded by Catch 22-style rules that were explained neither on the Website nor in my conversation with sales representative when I originally signed up, but only after I was enrolled as a service customer and later tried to buy a phone I suspect that I’m not the only customer similarly boxed in, which is why I would like Consumer Cellular to change its approach in common sense ways: a) to clearly explain the limitations on EasyPay access in written and verbal communications with customers; and b) to review the credit of any customer who wishes to use EasyPay, regardless of whether his or her credit was checked at the time of account signup For these reasons, I respectfully reject the company’s proposed resolution Sincerely, [redacted] ***
