Looks like April 16 is starting to be the day for Samsung Galaxy S4 presales. AT&T's opening up that day, and now US Cellular is throwing its hat into the ring, too.
No word yet on what the phone will cost -- we're told it'll be announced on April 16 -- nor do we know what storage options USCC will offer.

As we all hoped heading into Samsung Unpacked in New York City, U.S. carriers are certainly getting behind the new Samsung Galaxy S4. It's by no means surprising to see so many want a piece of one of the hottest devices to launch in 2013, but it's still reassuring to see such support literally moments after the event ended.
The latest to confirm the Galaxy S4 is U.S. Cellular. There isn't a...
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 isn't a new device, but the LTE version continues to find new homes. This time out, the news comes from U.S Cellular who today is making the 16GB version of the device available for purchase for $499.99, when paired with a data plan of 2GB or more. Not a small amount of money by any means, but if you want a 10-inch tablet with pen input, the Note 10.1 is still the...

U.S. Cellular is hoping to compel some users to head over to its network by offering $300 to families that bring along two or more lines and activate a smartphone. The incentive comes in the form of a prepaid MasterCard debit card, which is probably better than other ways they could've done it, although we may have preferred to have it put on your bill as a credit for service.
The promotion U.S...
It's been one hell of a year for the smartphone industry, and 2012 produced some of the biggest and most unique innovations to date. More important than the increase in pixel density or the additional processing cores, though, is the progress we've seen in the quality of non-flagship devices. Prior to 2012, shopping for a smartphone on a budget meant you were going to have to make some serious...
If you're rocking a U.S. Cellular Samsung Galaxy S II, your long wait for Android 4.0 is finally at an end. The update is available for download, although it doesn't look like it's going out OTA. Hit the source link at the bottom of this post for more, but basically you'll need to download the update and install via your computer.
While still Touchwiz'd up, the jump from Gingerbread to Ice...
We’re officially in the thick of the holiday season, and carriers are hoping now is the time you’ll sign away your wireless soul for the next two years for the promise of a shiny new device. But before you head to the mall, take a deep breath and weigh your options closely — just because it’s that time of year doesn’t mean you have to do anything rash.
For U.S. Cellular customers, 2012 just may...
Looks like nothing stays secret for long, especially not with the fine folks over at @evleaks ever on the prowl. The latest device to appear from the usually reliable tipsters is this, known as the Samsung Galaxy Axiom. Odd name, but essentially appears to be a Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini variant headed for US Cellular.
Specs wise, we're looking at 4 inch WVGA LCD display, a dual-core 1.2GHz...

U.S. Cellular has announced that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be on store shelves starting October 26 (this Friday), and that tomorrow is the last day for preorder. Those that have already been ordered will be shipping tomorrow. The timing doesn't come as much of a surprise since Sprint's launch is looking similar.

US Cellular is gearing up an update for the Galaxy S3 (Galaxy S III), and while it's not Jelly Bean, it could be a pretty big deal. Besides the normal tweaking things, fixing old bugs, and introducing new ones that a maintenance release always brings, there's some evidence that this update will bring Google Wallet officially to the phone. This would mark the Galaxy S III as the first carrier...

After this morning's announcement that the Galaxy Note 2 would be everywhere in the next few months, we've been waiting for word from each carrier. U.S. Cellular has jumped in and put their pre-order page live, and if you can part with $300 (on a contract, of course) you can have a shiny Galaxy Note 2 shipped your way by the end of October.
That's honestly a bit sooner that we expected after...

The app can also be configured to automatically...
Behold, the LG Splendor for US Cellular. This unannounced phone has been outed by a now--pulled LG product page and still-alive product brochure, as spotted by an eagle-eyed SmartPhenom. It looks to be a decent device, with a 4.3-inch display at 800x480 resolution, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a 5-megapixel rear camera. It's all powered by a Qualcomm MSM8655 processor running at 1 GHz....
