VX6000 Unlocking

Can anoyone tell me if there's a way to get the US CELLULAR software off this phone to flash a different providers software on it like Verizon or Alltel? I've had some customers get a Verizon tech to flash this phone but the enhanced services like SMS and web browsing still of course doesnt work.

Thanks for the help!

New Phones

So US Cellular is throwing out some of it's older phones and will be bringing in some new phones within the next month or so. Already they have brought in the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One V along with two new feature phones. I just am curious as to what new choices they will bring to the table.

Timeline for other 4G/LTE Phones?

Does anyone know a timeline for when we can expect other 4G/LTE phones to be available? More information besides "they're coming" or "soon" or "right around the corner" would be appreciated.

Now i know that there are good competitive phones out there and as a carrier that resells the Iphone4(S) is not as profitable as other phones, but I think the company would gain a good chunk of customers just by switching to an iphone and later after a year 1/2 they can upgrade to a different handset. Sales so far of the iphone 4S have been even better than the iphone4, look at C spire i never heard of that company and now is all over the news, it was an instat marketing move. I am dissapointed at US CELLULAR by not giving the iphone4(S) a second thought specially if they are laggin behing latest handsets, and they are loosing customers. like I said there is no much gain to the carrier just by reselling the IPHONE but the carrier gains a new...

Motorola electrify not 4g ready?

The whole reason I got this phone 3 months or so ago is because the USC rep said it was 4g ready. But from what I've been able to find out it's not. Just looking for a definitive answer and is there anything I can do to get a different phone? Thanks

Finally we're getting the Samsung Galaxy SII!!

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 pipeline, I really feel that if they put a little info of what they have coming a bit earlier, it might help retain more of their customers, and make outsiders from other carriers take notice. Oh well, now hopefully the rumors about the Galaxy Nexus are true as well, and we can get that device as a 4G offering, we c...

US Cellular Employees Take Large Paycut!!!!!!!!!!

Just announced minutes ago, a change in commissions has caused an uproar within the company. Every employee took a hit with the new belief plan as they are no longer paid for phones sold to customers already on the belief plan. Now an additional pay-cut comes just before the Christmas holidays. US Cellular employees are now no longer paid for, nor receive credit for customers that are on old plans. Employees are now only paid to switch customers over to the new belief plans, and paid for new customers. Even new customers don't pay that well as employees make only $9 to $21 per customer as apposed to the previous plan where they made over $100 in some cases for accounts. Unfortunately US Cellular has not added the amount of customers that the...

In your opinion, why hasn't US Cellular had the growth in customers?

For those who work for US Cellular or who are very familiar with it, why do you think US Cellular has struggled to have customer growth in the last couple of years? Is it due to:

- lack of handsets

- price of plans

- being a small carrier

- too much fierce competition

- something else

I am not intending on this being a US Cellular bashing thread, but rather I want to get people's opinions who are familiar with US Cellular. It seems as though this company has good coverage, including rural coverage, and good customer service. So I am curious to see why you think it is struggling to grow the customer base.

If you became the CEO of US Cellular ( ) what direction would you take the company?

If somehow you got this position (and accepted it of course Smile ) what direction would you take the company?

Would you:

1. Make massive changes in pricing/structure/etc to try to be competitive? If so, what would these changes be?

2. Find a buyer as quick as possible?

3. Attempt to buy other smaller carriers to expand presence?

4. Continue the current course?
