March 21, [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] Dear, Thank you for contacting us regarding this complaint and allowing the opportunity to respondWe would like to work directly with the customer to address her concerns and try to resolve her service issuesWe have been trying to contact her but have not been successfulIt sounds like maybe someone is picking up and then hanging up and we are unable to leave a messageIf Ms [redacted] would like a call back, she should provide us with a valid contact number, other than the cell number, and a date and time that would work for her so that I can have someone reach out to her againSincerely, TINA G [redacted] CORPORATE EXECUTIVE RESOLUTION SPECIALIST

Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because: First and foremost I am DR [redacted] or MS [redacted] , not Mr [redacted] Second, I will be having my computer expert in to sync my phone to my computer; I don't trust Consumer Cellular to do it Last, but certainly not least, my phone went kaput on the 19th and I didn't receive a replacement until the 24th I believe the phone sent to me was a refurbished phone and NOT a new one because there was no plastic to peel off the face of it Very unhappy with the service (or perhaps I should say lack thereof).I also didn't appreciate someone telling me to "hop on down" to [redacted] or [redacted] and buy a new phone Maybe its generational but does anyone have any manners these days?? Sincerely, Dr [redacted]
