For those who have Consumer Cellular, where have you not had service? Specifically where you thought you should have had coverage? Not referring to out of the way places where most phones don't have coverage like Yellowstone. Just looking for places you have traveled where you were surprised not to have coverage. Thank you for your time.

Consumer's Cellular uses one or more of the Big 3 (AT&T, T-Mobile Verizon) and it appears some smaller companies as well. So they have lots of coverage.

But nobody is 100%

No coverage in my bedroom at home. Wifes Verizon also has no signal there. It's a small house too.

My wife has been with Consumer Cellular for 10 years and I cannot remember a time when she could not make a phone call. And we have been in some sketchy service areas. Data is a different matter. In those areas she couldn't access the internet. I switched this year from Verizon to C.C. and cut our bill by $50.

Our CC works mostly everywhere, only in a few remote areas it hasn't. It has an AT&T SIM card. If we wanted to use our phone in Europe we could get a T-Mobile SIM for $10 from CC or Target.

As previously noted, CC uses AT&T and T-Mobile networks. Each phone has a sim card that only uses one or the other. My wife recently got a new i-phone, and she consistently could not get coverage when my Samsung did. It turned out that she had a sim card that used the T-Mobile network, where mine uses AT&T. After a visit to a Target store, she had an AT&T sim card installed. After that, she is now getting service. And, Consumer Cellular credited our account for the $10 we spent on the new sim card.

Vernal, Utah. A year ago in July, right in town, zero signal.

Thanks for this tip. I called Consumer Cellular and they told me that both our phones have T-Mobile sim cards. When we get ready to leave Florida, I think we may switch at least one sim card to AT&T.
