US Cellular has posted their 2015 Q2 earnings, and things are looking pretty positive for the company. They didn’t experience tremendous growth, but operating revenue grew to $975 million, up from $957 million a year ago. Their postpaid subscriber count grew, and churn stayed relatively low, helping the company stay profitable. Read more
In a bid to poach customer from other networks, US Cellular has launched a promotion that guarantees lower bills to new customers who move from Verizon and AT&T. In case, it fails to deliver on the aforementioned promise, US Cellular will give you a $50 gift card absolutely free.

Despite a March 1 announcement, it appears that the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be available after a bit, starting April 10. As such, carriers here in the US and abroad have announced that they will be carrying the new Galaxy flagship. Those include, T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint in the US and Vodafone and Three in the UK. As far as pre-paid is concerned there are a few carriers that will carry the new Galaxy.
Moto X 2nd Gen users on US Cellular are the next in line for some update sweetness with Android 5.0.2. Read more
Hot on the heals of US Cellular, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, Verizon has now joined the party to launch the curved variant of Samsung’s flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note Edge, in the United States.
The handset will set you back $399.99 on any of Big Red’s two-year plans or $799.99 unlocked. You can also bag yourself one for $33.33 per month if you happen to be a member of the carrier’s Edge program.
The Galaxy Note Edge is heading to carriers in the United States this week. AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile are all going to release the unique Samsung device on November 14. Verizon, at some point in the near future, will join in doing so. So the Galaxy Note Edge will be found the nation’s four largest carriers. There is good news for customers with smaller carriers as well.
A Samsung device with the model number SM-N915R4 showed up at the FCC. This matches that of the Galaxy Note Edge and the ending “R4″ belongs to a specific carrier. Which one? It seems that US Cellular will be getting its own Galaxy Note Edge.

We’ve heard that Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge may not actually end up being a full-scale production device, but instead just a limited run device to gauge consumer reaction to the curved display. Despite that, it’s looking like we’ll see the device launched on at least two US carriers, if new FCC filings are accurate.
The filing for a device with the model number SM-N915A show that it has LTE bands for both AT&T and US Cellular. While that doesn’t mean that we’ll see the Note Edge hit shelves at the same time as the Note 4, at least it will be somewhat available at some point. Since AT&T is the exclusive carrier of the Galaxy Alpha, the carrier seems fairly committed to keeping their portfolio up to date with Samsung’s products. Read more
There are three new versions of the Galaxy Alpha series floating around, but the A5 seems to be the least shy of the bunch. That usually means that it’s close to release, but another clue is the needed FCC approval.
The Galaxy A5 has officially cleared the FCC, but interestingly enough, it’s only sporting the LTE-FDD Band 5. Could this be a US Cellular only phone? There could be other variants as well, but we at least know that US Cellular customers will have a chance to buy the device.
With the announcement of the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge out of the way, the only thing left to find out is when and where you’ll be able to pick one up. Fortunately, all of the major US carriers have released some information and sign-up pages so you’ll be able to get your hands on one.
Verizon plans on selling the Note 4 and Note Edge, but they haven’t said anything about the Gear VR or a specific release date. They do have a sign-up page for those of you that are interested, however. AT&T has listed pages for both devices, and they are going to sell the Gear VR as an accessory to the Note 4. No release date here, either. Read more
