I too have Consumer Cellular, I've had it for several years now, it's cheap, piggybacks on AT&T, and for the most part has met my needs. However two years ago I used it as a hot spot while camping as the campground wifi kept cutting out and only worked at all in one particular spot of the site. So I tethered my computer to the phone, we watched one movie on Netflix and my data usage went up so much I just couldn't believe it. My bill went up $35.00 to watch only one movie, learned my lesson and haven't done that again. Historically I don't use a lot of data on my phone and I typically pay around $40.00 for two phones and Consumer Cellular which doesn't offer an unlimited plan automatically bumps you up whenever you go over. My wife hasn't even used her phone for two years since her company provided her one a nice Iphone with an unlimited Verizon plan, but it's tied to her work so she doesn't like to use it as a hot spot. I've been reluctant to cut her phone from my plan as we've had the number for over 20 years. recently she did tell me I should stop paying for it, and since my own phone is in need of an upgrade, I've been shopping for a new provider. Here's the part that pisses me off I can get a 4 phone plan, unlimited for $40.00 per line, per month. I don't need 4 lines, I only need 1 line and that same plan for only 1 line is $95.00 a month. I feel as though I will very soon need to make the switch.
