What clues might that be? There are no clues. For one, the iPh 5 won't even work on US Cellular's frequency band. US Cellular has pigeonholed themselves. They are somewhere in between a prepay and post pay operator and take the worst elements of each. They are like a prepay carrier in that they offer low end, crappy phones, but they are like a post pay carrier in their plans' high prices. They are priced like Verizon or AT&T without offering their phone selection. And they are like a post pay carrier in that they want you to sign an initial contract, but they are like a prepay in that they don't require a contract after the first one is fulfilled. I don't know who they are trying to compete with really and I don't think they do either. They can't compete with the big four carriers price wise when they offer prepay level phones. Also, they can't compete with prepay either because prepay carriers win in the pricing war. Moreover, the company has no plans to expand into any new markets. I just don't see any long term future with US Cellular.
