US Cellular Galaxy S3

No commitment service coming to a limited number of markets at launch

One of the so-called "second tier" carriers, U.S. Cellular, is hoping to wrangle in more customers by launching a "test-drive" promotion to let users try out the service for one week before buying it. Initially launching in just a few markets, users can sign up at a participating store to try out the carrier's network without a commitment. In almost every case a handset purchase will be required to use the network, which can be a tough sell if you've never used (or even know someone who has used) the network.

It doesn't cost a whole lot for U.S. Cellular to run this promotion, and it may net them a few more customers going forward. If you're interested in trying the promotion, hit the source link below to see if you live near one of the very few test markets.

US Cellular letting users 'test-drive' service for one week before buying


Wow! I would never have expected AC to delete comments and then update an article based on said comment. Seriously? No journalistic integrity.

OK. someone explain why I should switch from Verizon's Family plan to U.S. Cellular. Charges come out to be the same for me.
