Finally we're getting the Samsung Galaxy SII!!
Feb 21, 2012, 7:13 PM
in the U.S. Cellular forum

Just seen it on Phonescoop today, and my local store confirmed they should have it on sale the first week of March. Though not 4g it is still an awesome device and with the same processor found in the Sprint version it's blazingly fast. Kind of wish I was elgible for an upgrade but I had gotten the Electrify(also an outstanding device) 4 months ago. Wish U.S. Cellular wasn't so secretive about the phones they have coming down the ...

Update for Motorola Electrify???
Feb 9, 2012, 12:14 PM
in the U.S. Cellular forum

Just wondering if there is any word of the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Electrify coming out and if so when.

What a stupid, greedy company!

in the Article: Verizon Wireless Recants, Won't Charge $2 Fee forum

As if this ridiculous, oversized company with its insane profits needed to nickel and dime its customers further with a $2 fee. Its time that this company with its overpriced plans started to see a mad exodus of customers to humble it back to reality. And yes you guessed it, I am not a customer of Verizon or any of the other "Big3", because it just seems these companies are hell bent on charging more and giving less. I ...

Re: When will the HTC Desire S be released?
Jul 16, 2011, 10:37 PM
in the U.S. Cellular forum

Thanks a lot! I'm really excited about these upcoming releases- and now that I heard about the Electrify I'm now contemplating holding off for that one. The specs on that device are insane, and with it also being 4G it will not be outdated anytime soon. Will probably hold off for the Motorola- but its gonna be tough!

When will the HTC Desire S be released?
Jul 14, 2011, 12:24 AM
in the U.S. Cellular forum

I have been reading on various sites that where getting the Desire S, checked out the vids of this phone on YouTube, and it could possibly be my next device. A part of me still wants to hold out for the Motorola phone we are supposedly getting, which sounds an awful lot like the Motorola Photon Sprint is getting. Is there any solid info on when these phones may be coming out?

Is there any info on where U.S.C's 4G network is as far as development?
Apr 23, 2011, 11:52 PM
in the U.S. Cellular forum

I had read an online article about how Huawei was in the running for building U.S.C's 4G network. Has it been decided which company will be doing this, and more importantly is there a schedule as far as where and when the test markets will be, or when they'll begin rolling this out. I know I'm probably asking for the world...but just trying to get an important thread on the next evolution of U.S.C started.

Why no cool Motorola offerings....
Feb 28, 2011, 11:06 PM
in the U.S. Cellular forum

Considering how strong Motorola has come on with their Smartphone selection, why hasn't U.S. Cellular widened their Moto offerings. Are there any rumors in the pipeline to any of their "better" existing products coming our way? Ive always enjoyed the rugged quality of Moto products, and it seems like their getting more competitive with their hardware.

Upgrade eligibility coming up in May, love the Samsung Mesmerize, but just wondering if there are any 4.3inch offerings coming from HTC. Heck even that LG Revolution that Verizon is coming out with looks really nice, seeing as how we use to offer a lot of the same hardware any chance of our getting that? Thanks in advance.

The REAL reason U.S. Cellular is number one with Consumer Reports...and its customers!
Dec 9, 2010, 2:50 AM
in the U.S. Cellular forum

Upon seeing the thread about how U.S.Cellular is number one in a host of categories it really doesn't come as any surprise. This is in the same way its no surprise to the AT&T Customers that their carrier is dead last. The truth of the matter is, is that USC has fantastic Customer Service, both at their call centers and at their stores-at least I can speak for the ones I've been at in the Joliet, Ill area. As ...

Hahaha, I have a brother in law who at 39 still dresses up as Boba Fett for Halloween, I could see him getting this, and making calls all night while trick or treating, hahaha.

in the U.S. Cellular forum

I really didn't want to start a new thread on this topic, but like draven620 I too will be eligible for an upgrade in OCT., just in time for the Galaxy S. I held off big time when the HTC Desire came out because I went nuts for the specs on the Samsung. As we are now getting into the month of Oct., is there any word on an official release date, or what ours will be like? Seeing ...

You know 8091nafsbuc, Joshiwa is right! Here you come off sounding like you are an employee of another carrier, badmouthing those of another on "their" forum, when if simple easy to get to info retrieved from each carriers website tells anyone and everyone the truth. U.S Cell offers better prices, cheaper airtime, free incoming messeges, cheaper web and email pkgs with GPS, outstanding customer service. Hell even their phones are getting more competetive 2 really good androids, HTC Desire ...

Well to those who are customers making the Forbes List basically supports what we already knew, that U.S. Cellular is a great company with outstanding customer service and a fantastic reputation. As far as the dip in customers dont worry about us we`ll be doing fine once the lemmings who signed up with Att, and eventually Verizon realize that a smartphone is just a pretty paper weight when you are scared of the cost of using it. As far ...

Re: Hmmm, second carrier to announce Tiered Pricing.
Sep 27, 2010, 3:39 PM
in the U.S. Cellular forum

With respone to 8091nafsbucs` comments about "industry standard"- What industry standard? At&t is the ONLY one charging the ridiculous fee! But I will agree with you that if you find it justifiable to keep paying more and more for "YOUR" usage please go right ahead. If not than please feel free to stop using your "smartphone"after the second or third day into your billing period and using say your cool iphone as an ipod or for calls, but as ...

Sep 25, 2010, 8:59 PM
in the U.S. Cellular forum

In response to 8091nafsbuc commenting about At&T having a $15 data plan and it being enough. Are you kidding? $15 for a measely 200mb`s of data? You sneeze or blink and you`ve used up 200 mb`s. Furthermore it's my contention that if your going to make an investment in the cost of some of these more premium smartphones its with the intention of wanting to use it for all its streaming, downloading, and surfing capabilities- that is after all ...

Hmmm, second carrier to announce Tiered Pricing.
Sep 23, 2010, 9:32 PM
in the U.S. Cellular forum

With Verizons announcement today of their going the At&t route(GREED), I'm hoping that U.S. Cellular sees this more as an opportunity to expand and not exploit. This is a chance I think for U.S C to pick up disgruntled customers from the other "Big 2" with our value packed plans- including unlimted data! If ever there was a moment to start improving on that 6.5 to 7.0mil customer base this has got to be it. No matter how fantastic ...

Re: What good will this "AMAZING" phone be without an unlimited data plan?
Jun 16, 2010, 5:25 PM
in the Apple iPhone 4 (GSM) forum

Well I am glad to see that the replies were indeed civilized. it just has to be remembered however, that these devices are evolving into more than just phones. ATT had to suspend taking preorders at 600,000. Because people DO want to watch streaming movies on PROMISED fast networks, because phones are coming with 4+inch screen displays with superpixel counts. Everything about these devices scream for data usage. To say that responsibility on the part of the consumer is ...

What good will this "AMAZING" phone be without an unlimited data plan?
Jun 11, 2010, 1:46 PM
in the Apple iPhone 4 (GSM) forum

Can someone please explain to me, how Att figures that they will be succesful selling this phone or any smartphone for that matter, when you are no longer going to be offering unlimited data plans for new customers. As it is the horror stories of Att's 3G service are well known. To that you limit the ability to use your phone for streaming video or say SlingBox what good will this device be? Sure if you want to be ...

in the Article: Google Officially Intros the Nexus One forum

I do have an honest question, so please dont attack. Though not an Android owner I am impressed with its potential, but why would there be so many versions of Android out there? I can understand that as hardware evolves you would need to enhance the OS to take advantage. But many of the phones that run on Android, are sharing with little exception the same processor, maybe tweaked in the memory or camera department. Aside from that not ...

Yes, I know the store associate told me to come in on saturday and he would take care of it. I'm interested in asking if they've sold out of inventory at their store. It wouldnt surprise me, every other carrier has run out when they first came out with the TP2, it's that good.

I picked it up 11/20 at the Shorewood, IL store. An awesome store assoc. named Paul had saved me one till I got off of work, Thank You again! This phone is AWESOME. Have not been able to put it down. Yes its fast, has plenty of ram to multitask, and ohh soo customizable. But with the HTC TouchFlo UI you may not want to because its fantastic! Yes there is a 3.5mm jack for those who asked. The ...

I am finally qualified for an upgrade, so I gotta ask "does anyone know when the TP2 will be available"? I read Sprint 9/8, Verizon a month later. When are we getting ours???

I`m with you joker. I`m due for an upgrade and am ashamed to admit I was contemplating leaving USCC`s great network for T-Mobile. It seems like their getting a slew of COOL phones! Then I heard the rumors about the TP2, I`m not going anywhere. I honestly believe that if US Cell would put as much emphasis on bringing out cooler handsets out faster, they would be unstoppable. Their weak handset offering is their ONLY failing.
