Consumer Cellular Customer Service
What they don't tell you anywhere in writing or on the Web site is that Customer Service only works during daylight hours Eastern Time. The Customer Service hours are not published anywhere. It's a secret apparently.
So if you want someone to help you, you are stuck waiting until the folks in the Eastern Time zone get up and see the sun. Other than that, Customer Service is "Happy to help!"
NOT that Easy
Some comments about the Doro PhoneEasy 618.
Easy is not all that EASY.
1.It is not Easy to switch to silent mode, there should be a one button option to do that. In order to get to change the phone to Silent Mode you have to traverse several screens.
2. The lanyard attachment is Easy to lose since it is not a permanent thing. Take of the back cover and the lanyard falls off. The phone should have an EASY permanent way to attach the lanyard.
3. The day of the week is NOT displayed on the main screen and there is no option to select how to do that. The alternative is NOT easy to find, there are at least 5 screens to go through to get to the Calendar and then find out the day of the week.
Other than that, The PhoneEas...
