Just signed up for US Cellular, and I want to change my phone?

Yesterday (8/18/11) we signed up for US Cellular on the web. We got three LG Saber phones on the Family Essential Plus plan (1500 minutes, Unlimited Messaging, 5 GB of data per line) because the total that we'd have to pay for the day would only be $0.03, and we have -$173 in the bank account. I got an email saying the phones would arrive sometime next week. I don't want an LG Saber. I had a Motorola Devour with Verizon, so the LG Saber is a bit too basic for me. I was actually interested in the LG Genesis. I will have the money to pay for the phone on September 15. Can I change my phone? Will I get any crazy fees?

USCC-National Carrier....Since when?

Im not trying to pick on US Cellular, but I have recently seen ads that say "Get the highest call quality and network satisfaction of any national carrier".

My question is, since when did US Cellular become a national carrier? I, as well as the industry itself, have always considered it a regional carrier (sometimes I have heard "super-regional carrier"). I hope it isn't that someone decided to call USCC a national carrier in one survey, and USCC started running with this description of itself, saying it is a national carrier all of a sudden.

Maybe this should not bother me as much as it does. But I feel like US Cellular is always trying to be what it is not. It always tries to portray itself as one of the big carriers, when it is ...

Phone Pricing Scheme?

So i have been a long time USCC customer and i am looking at renewing and getting a new phone. the phone i want is advertised for $39.99 after 50 MIR. But to qualify for the rebate you HAVE to have a $14.95/month plan for 3 months. So to eliminate pennies. You pay $90 for a phone. spend another $45 in a data plan and then get $50 back...To me this isn't a $40 phone it is a $85 phone. False advertising on the cost of the phone?

WAKE UP...means more than you think

The reason The Belief Project is going to wake up the wireless industry is not just based on ground breaking value. We have to change the way we think about wireless. The industry is so cost based that customers have no clue about the value of what they are paying for...or currently lack there of. The Top 5 spend millions of $$ each year telling consumers what phone they should get with no focus on their actual reoccuring charges. A majority of consumers don't stay with their carries because they want to, rather because they have to. Either they are trapped by a certain device or they realize its the same where ever they go. We have the lowest churn rate in the industry, thats because we are smaller and have had the opportunity to prov...

Blackberry Torch

I just got the Blackberry Torch. I have had blackberry for years and years. Last year I tried the HTC Desire. It was an amazing phone but the email capabilities never compared to a blackberry. I ended up going back to my old curve. Recently I tried the Mesmerize. The screen was beautiful and features on Android are amazing, but once again I was constantly annoyed with not getting my email all the time. I know I'm probably the minority, but I think I will stick with blackberry. I think the Torch is an amazing phone. I couldn't be happier with it, except if it had a "slide it" keyboard like the android. Does anyone else have this phone?

When will the HTC Desire S be released?

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?

Windows 7 Phone

I recently got the new Windows 7 Phone, the HTC 7 Pro. I'm wondering if there are any apps in the marketplace that will keep track of my data usage, similar to the 3G Watchdog app for Androids. Also, is there an app that will show me all the apps that are running on my phone? again similar to what Androids have.
