US Cellular is also LTE @ 1900??

Or is the LTE radio disabled?

It won't be disabled. USCC is advertising it as an LTE phone, so expect it to work on their LTE network.

As for the exact bands, to be honest, I'm not sure. Neither Samsung nor USCC has published the exact LTE bands it supports. We've asked, and have yet to get a firm response.

1900 is one of USCC's LTE bands, but only one of several.

If USCC does have their own version with additional LTE bands, it has yet to be approved by the FCC.

Regardless of bands, we grouped these together because they are the most alike, supporting CDMA+LTE. Verizon's will also support global roaming at some point, a major enough feature that we made that a separate listing.

USCC uses LTE 750 + 850 + 1700 + 1900. As far as I know, all four bands are utilized, I just don't know the breakdown of where.

Part of USCC's issues with launching LTE phones has been getting the quadband LTE to function correctly. But when they are out, they are very steady and not prone to breakdowns.

The USCC version has finally been approved by the FCC. It does support all four USCC LTE bands. Smile
