Looking to switch carriers? U.S. Cellular has begun offering $300 in credit to customers who port their number and trade-in their phone – even if the phone has a cracked screen. In addition, U.S. Cellular is offering its home solution products for one penny, along with the first two months of service FREE, which includes Home Phone, Router + Home Phone, Hot Spot and Modem devices that normally run $20-$30 per month each. If a current customer refers a friend and the friend activates a phone on a Shared Connect plan, both parties will get $50.
This is a great deal for customers who are either looking for a new carrier, or those without phone insurance and wanting to upgrade a cracked device. U.S. Cellular is even offering an unlimited buy-out of customer’s contracts after they submit their final bill from their carrier. Joe Settimi, vice president of marketing for U.S. Cellular, says:
“We know that there are people who are looking to change wireless carriers, but they have broken screens that have no trade-in value, and therefore can’t afford to make the switch. We wanted to remove that barrier for people and give them an easy way to upgrade…”
I know what you’re thinking: since U.S. Cellular is a prepaid carrier, they probably have crappy phones right? WRONG! Customers can buy premium devices, including the iPhone 6s/6s Plus, Samsung’s Galaxy S7/S7 Edge. They also have tablets like the iPad Pro, iPad Mini 4, Galaxy Tab E, and more. Although “prepaid” carrier isn’t technically correct, as U.S. Cellular has regular Individual Line plans, as well as Shared Data plans and the prepaid options.
