As we approach the most popular shopping day of the year, another carrier has specified the deals going on for Black Friday. U.S. Cellular is lowering prices, bundling gift cards, and offering extra data to celebrate Black Friday this year. Customers new and old will both have something to look for from U.S. Cellular.
Another carrier in the United States started selling the best mid-range device on the market. The Moto G (2015) can be purchased through U.S. Cellular in three different ways. Customers can choose to pay for the device monthly, sign a two-year contract, or pay outright on a prepaid account.
U.S. Cellular customers won’t have to wait long before they can start pre-ordering the LG G4. According to a tweet from the carrier this weekend, it will begin taking pre-orders for the device online and in stores on May 29.

With all the flagship smartphones being released recently, it’s easy to forget that not everyone is in the market for such high-end devices. With that in mind, U.S. Cellular are offering its prepaid customers the wallet-friendly LG Logos handset for $99.
U.S. Cellular has just announced that it will start taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge starting tomorrow i.e. March 27. The carrier has currently announced the pricing and availability of only the 32 and 64GB models, with no sight of the 128GB variants yet. Read more

Last week at CES 2015, the LG G Flex 2 was introduced to the world. Both Sprint and AT&T were quick to confirm the handset’s availability to their customers. We can add U.S. Cellular to the list of carriers offering the G Flex 2 because an FCC filing reveals that the carrier has its own variant. It supports LTE bands 5 and 12 in addition to the 850 and 1900 CDMA bands. All of these are supported by U.S. Cellular. The exact model number for the handset in this FCC filing is LG-US995.

Everyone is sick of the data caps that cell phone companies have imposed on us. It’s one thing to cap data, but it’s another to over charge for services rendered. I have been saying all long that Google will fix this mess and they are already making steps toward it.
They are lobbying with regulators to free up vacant spectrum that is not only low cost, but useless to the U.S. carriers. They would like to see as much as 150 megahertz of specturm around the 3.5 gigahertz band. The idea is to leave it open to anyone without a license, but set aside some of it for companies to use exclusively.
ZTE has announced their ZTE Imperial II smartphone will be coming to U.S. Cellular. The Imperial II is aimed at budget-focused buyers and will be available for $0 down with a two-year contract. However, avoiding being locked in to a two-year contract is not an expensive proposition as the Imperial II will only run $100 off contract.
The Imperial II is the successor to ZTE’s Imperial, but with a larger 5-inch screen. The device comes equipped with a Snapdragon quad-core processor running at 1.2 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, a 5 MP rear-facing camera, a 2,300 mAh battery, support for 4G LTE and runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
