A few things, U.S. Cellular was not sold to Sprint. Certain markets were sold to Sprint. If you were a customer in one of those markets, you would not have been able to purchase a phone within the last month. In addition if you had purchased a phone more than a month ago, but less than 3 months, you would have paid close to retail price and most likely would not have purchased the phones. Chicago, St. Louis, and parts of Central, IL were sold. All U.S. Cellular equipment in thos markets that were sold will continue to work. Once the agreements are up for the impacted customers, Sprint will most likely try to retain those customers. However Sprint is letting customers out of their U.S. Cellular agreements, without early termination fees, after the switch has been made. Long story short, if you are in a transition market, U.S. Cellular did not sell you a phone.
