Consumer Cellular was founded in October of 1995 by John Marick and Greg Pryor, and for the last nine years, the postpaid mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) has been consistently expanding the inclusions of its Talk and Connect monthly rate plans at no extra cost to mobile users. Indeed, for almost a decade now, the carrier has been giving more voice call minutes, text messages, and data to customers’ plans without having them worry about paying any additional fees.
What about the carrier’s Talk plans? Those who like to connect through voice calls will be delighted to know that Consumer Cellular has also chosen to add more voice call minutes to some of its existing Talk plans. How much additional minutes are we talking about? This includes an extra 250 voice call minutes for the $20 a month plan, and 500 more voice call minutes on both the $30 a month and $40 a month plans. And yes, there are no changes in the pricing whatsoever.
Consumer Cellular is also going out of its way to assist its customers in keeping better track of the voice call minutes, text messages, and gigabytes they have consumed on a monthly basis. Sure, the postpaid MVNO’s Usage Alerts service is already helping its users do that, but the carrier is taking it a step further by deciding to track its customers’ monthly usage, specifically by automatically upgrading them to a plan that covers the amount of minutes, texts, and data they used for the month. For customers, this can mean only one thing -- goodbye, overage charges! Via Consumer Cellular’s Automatic Upgrades feature, the user always get the best rate possible for his monthly usage, with no extra costs at all.
