Will phone still ring before going to voicemail if battery dies?

I know when a phone is powered down it will go straight to voicemail when someone calls. Is this the same for when a battery dies, or is there a chance that it can still ring through before voicemail picks up?

I ask because a friend of mine is missing, can't get ahold of him and given the circumstances of when I last seen him I worry something bad may have happened rather than just him being avoidant, but I'm not sure. The thing is when anyone calls it will ring the usual 4 or 5 times then voicemail picks up. It's been almost a week since I've heard anything, I would assume that if something bad happened the phone battery would've died at this point, if that's the case would it automatically go to voicemail or is there a chance that even ...

If you're not a customer then why worry about it?

I've been noticing a lot of people being very negative on here lately about USCC and their new marketing strategy. The thing that really gets me is that for the most part it appears as though the people most opposed to it aren't even USCC customers.

If it doesn't effect you or if the companies so small and destined to fail why even waste your time posting about it?

I've seen threads where the Belief project has been refered to as religious and put on a biblical plateau. Come on people lets not let our imaginations direct conversations about a regional based cell phone carrier. As all of you have said USCC is a small company compared to the big boys and the Belief project is just a way for them to set themselve apart in the industry...

To the Naysayers of the belief project!

I would like to take a second to address people on this forum that think they have all the facts. Many people spend a lot of time compaining about the belief project, but half of the people are not even going in to talk to a sales person. Looking through numbers there are a lot of times where people would end up paying more, but if that is the case stay on your old plan. You are not forced to switch, you ca keep everything the way it was as if there was no belief project. Seems like the people compaining on here are the people that expect everything to be free in life. If you want benefits you will pay for it. Talking to my local sales person they switched over 60,000 people over by the 3rd day of the belief project launch. He showed me the ...

I miss having U.S. Cellular.

Unfortunatly I was unable to pay for US Cellular, and had to leave mid-contract to be on my mothers verizon account. Now things are better, US Cellular went 400.00 into collections....

How can I fix this? 400.00 Is still too much to pay at once....

How does US Cellular deal with stuff like this? I know sprint eventually just writes it off in certain cases (My sister had sprint, owed them 1000.00...and 2 years later, i know for a fact she got them back with a 200.00 deposit. I was there.)

What should I do? It was the best customer service, and for where I lived the best service!

Visual voicemail

I have sprint now and I like that when someone leaves me a voicemail, its says the number they called from and I can press 8 to call that number back. Does USCC have this? If not is there a visual voicemail that supports this and works on USCC and is free???

The Belief Project..

I know there are multiple, posts on this but didn't wanna just toss this in the bottom of a thread. ... »

I know some people are stating it will cost more it will cost less, but honestly never having to sign a contract again, after your first intial one? Verizon smart phone contract cancellation is 350..

The belief points is like a reward system, where you get to, use it to discount items in store, car chargers, screen protectors and so forth, which saves $ and adds up over time.

The plans with phone replacement, basically if your phone breaks drops in water go in, and swap it out, no waiting, for a replacement unless they don't have it in the store.

Only time you have...

Forbes list of Most Trusted Companies for 2010

I feel pretty proud being a US Cellular Representative at this moment and I just wanted to share this with everyone!

US Cellular is the only wireless provider to make the list! Only 5% of public companies make this list and on a scale from 0 to 100 we scored 100!!

We are different. And I know that what I do, which is helping our customers is making a difference! I love this company and I seriously can't see myself working for anyone else ever.

Congratulations to the Company and to all you fantastic employees who help make this prestigious recognition possible! Very Happy

Troper's List of Cellular Providers that I wouldn't want to fight with:

U.S. Cellular is number one.

Just the amounts of nameless goons dedicated to the Cause is off-putting.

Seriously creepy. How many of you were just a couple minutes late to the Hale-Bopp convention?

Hmmm, second carrier to announce Tiered Pricing.

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 their arsenal of cutting edge smartphones are, why would you even consider going with Verizon or Att or any other carrier for that matter who is going to cripple your usage of the internet, while still PADDING THEIR POCKETBOOKS! Trust me they are not doing this for "a better experiance" for their customers". It's j...
