Well, US Cellular is finally catching up to the rest of the world but could it be too late? After TOPS conversion fiasco that still plagues many and support or in store lines that are taking hours to be helped - things are not looking bright in many aspects for US Cellular. Regardless, they are still pushing forward and officially announced Shared Data on their earnings call. Here's what a tip has told us:
Roughly the third week in September. This coincides with the iPhone launch time as well
Current customers will still have the option to keep grandfathered plan or choose to switch as usual. New customers MUST choose a shared data plan unless it is adding a line to a grandfathered plan.
There will also be a feature phone only plan with a limited amount of minutes but the rest appear to be shared data plans.
- Unlimited talk and messaging
- Tethering included
- Will earn Belief Points (yay! )
- Can connect up to 10 devices per plan
Exactly like Verizon is what we're being told. I don't have specific comparisons but personally, I've checked Verizon prices and would easily pay $75 more right now.
Who's going to choose US Cellular over Verizon if prices are exact same but can get larger phone selection and faster data speeds?
That's all we've got for now. Ready for the debate below but things just aren't making sense with US Cellular right now. Will you be staying or will you even still be recommending US Cellular? I definitely need more info on these prices to answer those questions!
