The Good

  • Wide Array of Phones Available
  • Cell Phone Plan Options
  • Coverage Area Networks 
  • Customer Service
  • Rebates & Rewards

Wide Array of Phones Available

There are many good things about US Cellular's products and services, starting with the availability of a wide array of phones. The carrier supports and sells iPhones, Android smartphones, Windows phones, and Blackberry products.

Us Cellular also offers iPads, Android tablets, cellular modems for laptop computers, and accessories that can be used on the road.

Cell Phone Plan Options

US Cellular has several different plans and services available for customers. The company's Shared Connect plan forms the core of its contract services. We like the simplicity of Shared Connect, which includes unlimited minutes and texting. With non-contract phones and some other contract carriers, the user is often strapped to a certain number of minutes or text messages if they go with a "lower" service level. 

US Cellular offers several different features that go along with contract phone service. For example, there is overage protection, which is free. However, the overage protection is in the form of a text message that is sent to the customer.

US Cellular also offers no-contract phones, tablets with data connectivity, and other services. 

Coverage Area Networks 

US Cellular's "Shared Connect" and 4G LTE plans work in all fifty states. You can go outside of your "home" area and still enjoy great service without being subject to roaming charges. This is an important feature for those who want to use their phone while they are on the road.

Customer Service

US Cellular offers phone, email, and live chat support options. 

Rebates & Rewards

US Cellular occasionally offers rebates as an incentive to purchase a phone or plan. The company also has a good rewards program that involves referring customers or attending device workshops to earn points. These points can be used towards phone upgrades and accessory purchases.

The Bad

  • Service Area Stipulation 
  • Two-Year Contracts
  • Cancellation Fees
  • Data Price Scale

Service Area Stipulation 

Included in the fine print is a service area stipulation. US Cellular reserves the right to terminate a client's contract if they use 50% of their coverage outside of their "home area." This is because US Cellular brokers some of its coverage from other network providers. We felt like this is not true nationwide coverage.

Two-Year Contracts

US Cellular offers two-year contracts on most of its basic and smartphones. The smartphones are subject to a heavy cancellation fee in order to ensure that the customer keeps the phone. US Cellular also offers "penny" phones, the most basic of phones for the user that wants to keep their service simple.

Cancellation Fees

Cancellation fees for contract phones with US Cellular are on the pricey side. Basic phone contracts come with a $150 cancellation fee and smartphones come with a $350 cancellation fee. We felt that this cancellation fee policy straps the customer into a contract for a long period of time.

However, if a contract is a concern for a customer, there are "no-contract" options available.

Data Price Scale

Another thing that isn't ideal is the exponential price scale for higher-level data plans. The recommended data plans on Shared Connect often lock a family into a higher-end service level, but ensure that the family does not go over their data limit. There are also options on the phone that allow a parent or a decision maker to "lock" the data if they find that one particular line is being abused.

Customer Complaints

Some customers have reported issues with billing as well as promised discounts that were not honored. Overall, US Cellular generally responds to customer complaints reasonably and fairly, making sure that the customer receives credit when necessary if billing issues arise.

gavel

The Bottom Line

US Cellular has some good qualities and some bad ones. Ultimately, we hesitantly recommend US Cellular under certain conditions and after reading the terms and services carefully to avoid expensive fees. In order to avoid having your contract canceled, you need to monitor your usage closely and primarily stay in your home area.

DON'T DO IT!!! The service isn't that great and for the price you pay, it's ridiculous. It just seems to be getting worse over time also. They tell me if I am changing areas I need to power my phone off and on. I don't want to be doing that all day. Plus simple things like using their voicemail. You have to listen to all the talking of welcome to US Cellular and on and on. Let me just press 1 and get to my messages. Then if you don't press keep or delete at the end and hang up, it shows back up as a new message on your screen and you have to go through everything again. Customer service is a nightmare, but I find Verizon to be the same way. I think most customer service these days are bad. I'm just tired if poor reception for a big price.

I had a terrific experience. I was very upset over something I was confused about. The lady took her time explaining everything to me and in my opinion went above and beyond to help me. I will say us cellular has the best customer service which is why I've been with them 16 yrs, but I've never been compelled to leave a review until this lady Corina d. Helped me. I will be coming in to upgrade my phone with her also and I have not done that since 2016. The us cellular at shankfarm way has a fantastic employee! Go see her!

I live very very close to TDS in Farragut, TN (i.e., west Knoxville) that spun off US Cellular back in the 90s. I do not get a good call signal at my house with only 1 bar. One would think the area where they started would have the best coverage and yes, I use WiFi calling. Next, I used my phone inurance to get the same exact phone, Samsung 20+5G, because the battery life was decreasing. I took my new and old phone into the store and the guy screwed it up six ways from Sunday. He didn't think to use the Samsung Smart Switch function. WOW!!! He DID NOT know what he was doing. Don't buy anything in the store either. The Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Aluminum Smartwatch 44mm is $329.99, while Best Buy has the EXACT same watch for $229.99. I'm sorry, but that is a ridiculous difference!!! That's not looking out for their customers, but ripping them off.

If I could give less than one star, I would. The actual communication service is perhaps the worst in the United States. Villagers in the Andes probably have a more reliable network. If you utilize a cell phone for work or business, this company is simply not an option. I dropped an average of 10 phone calls per day while traveling for work. Cellular data availability was spotty at best. This is not, however, a reflection of their customer service. It's a shame that such good people have such a bad product to represent. The service is worth about 25% of what they charge, if that.

U S. Cellular lies all day everyday. They're crooks and bottom feeders. I was with them for almost 20 years and when I decided to go with T Mobile, us cellular made it as difficult as they could. Had to pay $466. after phones #'s were ported. I always paid on time too. They don't care one iota how they treat good standing, long term customers. Steer clear of US cellular!!

Idk who to really complain to about this but here I am. U.s. cellular has poor service and doesn't like to work even when u have full bars. MY MAIN COMPLAINT is the fact that there are constant phone updates that I'm sick of. I dint trust them and for good reason. You are BREAKING our phones!!!! I just bought this freaking thing right before Christmas and there have been so many unnecessary updates and they ha e done nothing but cause problems and changed my phone settings, downloaded apps without permission and glitches out my phone. I'm so sick of it and whoever is in charge of them NEEDS TO GET THEIR HEAD OUT OF THEIR BUTT AND LEAVE THINGS BE. My phone worked fine and DID NOT need an update so stop messing with the phones they work fine without you messing with crap and being nosy. 🤷‍♀️ I said what I said. I pay for this service and I want what I'm paying for not more issues. If these updates continue to mess with my phone I will be dropping this service and not returning. I'll just go get a burner phone or something and say bye Felicia 👋

I have been using U.S. Cellular now for 10 years and they have been great....when I was living in Washington. The service was good everywhere I went and the data seems to be fast when I'm in Washington but now that I live in Utah, my service is average and my data is soooooo slow because they don't have any towers here and piggy back off of other carriers. I don't mind them and would stick with US cellular if I lived in Washington but I'll have to change companies soon do to the fact that it's too slow. p.s. the customer service is usually really great and I did get the new Galaxy s8 for free which was sweet.

Very disappointed with customer service. Talked with a representative about being charged for service that was cancelled and was told I would get a refund, a week later nothing. Coverage in my area was dismal at best even though they insisted it was a 5g area.

So I have been a valued costumer of u.s cellular for about 2 years and now the customer service is bull crap because I pay for unlimited everything including data w/ hospot until now in April 2022 they send me a message about a data cap that was never informed prior to paying another bill and two days later received a text message about the hotspot overaceeded...wth..how? If you pay for unlimited everything it's a waste of money when you only get 20 Gb now vz. Unlimited everything for the same price now we must dispute u.s cellular random changes unless our bill is compatible

I unfortunately chose US Cellular for my daughter. I purchased a phone for her for Christmas. They tried telling me my name didn’t match my social then wanted me to go into the store. Then they call me back and said it was their system, that everything was fine. So I get the phone, activate it, wrap it and give it to her. Now it won’t call out. They said the service has been suspended because THEY CANT VERIFY ME! I haven’t even had my first bill come due! I call and they can’t help me over the phone, now they want me to go into the store AGAIN and prove my identity. The supervisor was very condescending, uncaring and basically said tough luck. They couldn’t explain to me WHY this happened, only that it did. Then when asked how to return the phone and cancel she wouldn’t answer. Pathetic.

They use to care about there long time customers, I have been with them over 20 years, there coverage is great in the US and I mean all over the US. What I don't like is they give new customers better deals on phones to switch while there old time customers pays full price on new phones and have a track record of staying useing there services, The company needs to be competitive with other companies as to the type of service they provide , like traveling, being able to use there own net-work and paying a high price just to use there phone service abroad.

The service is horrible in Chicago! Cuts in and out all the time and drops calls! Also, when I signed up I was receiving a 39% discount for being a school employee. This month I received a bill and it was $40 higher than normal. I called the company and asked why I did not receive the discount any longer and they gave me an email address for the company to email my issue to. When I received a return email it requested I go to a link where I needed to sign up my school for an E Bates offer, which was not helpful. The most irritating part is that there was no notification that my discount was going to be discontinued. I just received a larger bill!

Been in the Shelby County service area since they first "deployed" here in 1995. Been with them since 2007. First through my parents plan then on my sisters from 2008 to 2011 when I dropped my line due to lack of service availability. I filed complaints with US Cellular in 2009, 2011, 2015, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Each time informing them their coverage in town is not what they told the FCC or publish on their public coverage maps. In 2009 and 2011 they both agreed and said a tower was being planned to fill in that coverage gap and it would be up by 1Q 2012 (4Q 2011 was their planned date). It never came. So I dropped them and went without a phone for 4 years. In 2015 I was told it was going up finally and I called and the tech support said it was and it would be up within a year. So I said on the condition it was going up within that time frame, I would sign up. In 2017 I began to get agitated when service still wasn't deployed here.. I sent a message to their social media team. They just said they hadn't gotten any reports of any outages and said I should contact tech support. Problem is- I would have to drive outside of town to make the call or if I am lucky stand on the deck and use the speaker phone. (which I did). This time, the engineers responded back with.. "Your coverage is fine. Its just speed issues. No capacity problems either. A new tower is needed for speed improvements." and they labeled my town as a "lack of speed issue" when I filed my complaint as a SERVICE AVAILABILITY ISSUE. Its never been a speed issue, its been a.. "can I even get signal in town issue?" I've told them what their problem is.. Uplink. Their towers have so much between them that the phones they have out can't talk to the towers. So, yea sure.. their downlink can reach but what good is it if the phone can't send anything back? This has been 10+ years of lies from US Cellular's engineers for this town and I am flat fed up. They get paid high cost support from the government for this area too to offset the costs of having towers put up out here. As for my ratings.. Value for the money is about all they got if you have service and an older Total Plan. The new plans flat suck as you lose hotspot and a bunch of other features.

US Cellular did not advise us that the service in the area we were moving to was spotty. After trying to deal with the lack of service and returning to the store for help or return our phones, they made some software adjustments and asked us to see how that worked. We returned the phones 6 days later (one had never been activated); at which time the sales person cancelled our service and indicated that we didn't owe anything. Shortly after we received an invoice for $255.44; we waited to receive a credit to offset this charge. When we didn't receive the credit, we called US Cellular and were told a new bill had an amount of $90+ dollars. The representative said he would try to drop it to $21+; however, he ran into a problem and sent us to another department. The girl there said were responsible for the $90+ bill, but she could lower it to $86. We agreed to pay it just to not have to have anything to do with US Cellular in the future. When we asked for a copy of the invoice we were paying be sent to us (after making the payment), she told us that they could not provide us with that documentation. Don't believe anything they tell you. Answers change as it pleases them.

I got double billed this last weekend. Us Cellular took out $311.65 twice. It was done on 11/29 and 11/30, and both posted to my bank account on 12/2. When we called to tell them, they told us it would take at least 20 days to get it refunded back into my account. Then we were told they did not believe us even though they told us our bill was paid in full AND we had a credit of $311.65. They are making us go to our bank and our bank has to fax them a statement showing that they took out 2 times the amount owed. I am so mad! This won’t make it back into my account and now I can’t make my house payment because I had to transfer money from another account to cover the extra $311.65 charge. This is stellar customer service!!!😡

I was in need of a new phone and while we were getting it I inquired about the unlimited plan. The agent ran the numbers and the price he showed me on his phone was less than my monthly bill now. I asked at least 10x so with the new phone and this plan I would pay less each month. He insisted yes. So I switched. I got a bill about 2 weeks later and it was close to what he said. I was very pleased. My next bill came and it was nearly double! I was angry when I went I I was told there wasn't anything they could do. I told her I would like to be switched back to the plan I was on. She stated that plan did not exist anymore. I told her I would like to return the new phone. She stated it had been too long. I was extremely frustrated at this point. I told her I would like to speak with a manager. She called customer support. She asked what I wanted from them. I told her I didn't want to pay anymore than I would have if I had just upgraded my phone. They could not do this. No customer satisfaction. They took no responsibility for their agents mistake and did not help me.

I got US Cellular because my phone says its 4G in my area while other carriers are not 4G. However, I have discovered that US Cellulars 4G (where available) is worse that other carriers 3G. Furthermore they say their service works all over the country, but in 2 years I've found very few areas in the US that I am not roaming. Often, I have 1x or no data coverage while my wife's Verizon phone has 3G or 4G. When in Alaska, my phone says I have mobile data, but I found out through multiple phone calls to US Cellular that they failed to negotiate an agreement with a carrier in Alaska so there is no data coverage there. Now they have blocked my data because they say I have exceeded my roaming data limits, which I cannot find in the agreement or on the web site anywhere. What I can find on their web site is that they can limit my speed after I exceed my limit but it does not say they can turn it off. I also cannot find our what the "roaming limit" is. Now I have lost half my month of data that I paid for and cannot even use my phone in their home territory. When I called to find out why I could not use my mobile data, they told me it had been blocked and that a supervisor would call me back. After a few days, and no call back, I was informed that it might be up to 72 hours getting a call back. Try a week. And their stores are also bad. When my phone failed because of a defective battery, I went to a store to have it looked at. While the tech was looking at my phone, the store manager came over and made her stop helping me and told me I would have to replace my phone, even though it was just a few months old. I would definitely stay away from this phone company.

Have been a customer of US Cellular for ** 16 ** years!! Have been charged for text messages at $0.25 per for many years... that was our original agreement. US Cellular never contacted us to let us know we would be able to get a cheaper program. After 16 years, paying $80 per month for 3 lines, and ... get this ... 25 cents per text message!! ... they conceded to reducing our bill to $75 !!!! WOW! After 16 years of being scammed for the text messages... some loyalty. We are actively looking for ANY other carrier that will not charge us $0.25 for EACH text message!!! 16 years of loyalty.

Discounts you jump through hoops to get and never come to fruition. I was quoted $268/month- astronomical, and with all the phone calls and tasks they have set for me, I can't get below $306/month. Of course they give 3 whole days to change your mind on the contract, but you don't realize the barrel you are over until much later.

If I could only give negative stars! Their customer service is the industries worst. Their billing practice is nothing but gotcha every month, I was told our bill would always be the same and its never been the same any month and consistently 10 to 20 dollars higher. Coverage is beyond horrible! I live in a big town and about 50 percent of the area has no data which the completely lied about. Worst I tried to use my device insurance, get ready for this one.. You have to buy a new device full price, send in your old device and get a refund. Good luck with that, they totally screwed us..

Dont even think about it. Their marketing is totally deceptive. Keep all of your receipts if you dare to take the chance. I'm 4 months into the contract and they still cant tell me what my monthly payment should be. I have paid now twice for items I paid for in the store. If I don't pay the invoice in full I dont receive the credits I'm due so it you lose either way.

US Cellular did a dash mounted, hard wired phone in my car, the tech had tools in his pocket, sat in the seats during the install and put several punctures and two 3 cornered tears. When taking the headliner out for installing the antenna, he tore that as well. The company never would come good for the damages. If I could give a negative 5, I would of done that.

US Cellular is the worst internet cell service I have ever used. I live 4 miles from their tower in the middle of a cleared 60 acre field and am lucky if I get 0.20 mbps speed, that's 2 TENTHS of one meg speed. Or even worse it drops to a 1X speed or nothing at all. So much for the strongest signal in the middle of anywhere. The company should be sued by the federal government

I am a current customer and I was lied to from the get go. They said my husband and I could turn in our old phones and get new ones for free. Once we signed our contract and received our 1st bill it was too late to cancel. We did not get the credits for our old phones and wound up having to pay a monthly charge for our phones. After all the charges and stuff we were paying $325 a month for 4 phones. With Sprint we were only paying $175. The service sucks. We hardly ever have good internet service. They claim to have 4G and I live in Oklahoma City so it is a major city and barely get 1 to 2 bars of service at any given time a lot of the time it is only 3G service. If I go into a store I lose it and go into 3G service or no service at all.

Have never had a problem getting a signal, even in basement or while out camping. The few times I have had to use customer service they have been very helpful.

Good coverage, but didn't like it when they shut my phone off over a penny- even though I had paid my bill online

If you switch to US Cellular to get a free or substantially discounted phone, beware that it will be the last time you get that deal. Current customers do not get the same deals as new customers, and never have in the last 8 years that I've had US Cellular. Time for a change to a company that appreciates their customers!!

Everything was fine as long as I paid on time. Only had one late payment in 4 years, but when my workmphine gotmcracked, I got rude reps and the runaround. They did nothing nothing to offer to assist me, gave me the line about it wasn't insured.....is this how They treat good customers

Every time I see an ad I get angry. Their billing is never the same twice. When I had Straight Talk and Verizon I knew exactly what my bill would be. I complained to no satisfaction. The coverage is horrible. The only reason I still use USCellular is because of the contract. I hate everything about the company

Terrible service got the s8 today and all of my other phones went out, I called in as I have a 15 yo I can't contact and the guy told me to calm down, I was calm but once he said that all s**t hit the fan... Tell me to calm down that they screwed up my accounts. Will be looking into finding service elseware.....

The worst coverage ever! My calls get dropped constantly, i sometimes dont recieve texts from people, very unreliable data that is very slow or doesnt work even though it says 4G. Worst major phone company hands down.
