What rebates??!!?By M Wiebensohn, posted: Apr 08The good: Excellent reception. Only company that gives my area reception. I hear we're in a 'dead zone'.The bad: Very rude staff. Rebates promised were never honored. When questioned, one operator refused to answer our questions --- she just hung up on us. Extremely nasty. Summary: I am so disappointed in this company. We were promised $90.00 rebates for 3 phones we purchased in a share plan. That was 2 years ago and we are still waiting for the first dime to be sent. We just keep getting the run around. Unfortunately it is time to renew our contract. If there was another company we could use we would do it immediately. Unfortunately, we have to deal with these people. However do NOT expect a rebate from them, you probably will never get it.

Hated U.S. CellularBy Lisa Stein, posted: Mar 08Customer service was slow and not polite. They would bill outrageous amounts to my phone without mentioning that there was something I could do to lower the price. They only told me after I called numberous times and complained, only then did they fix the problem. I finally got out of my contract and am with T-Mobile. Please read my review of T-Mobile before making any decisions with U.S. Cellular!

So Far So Great!By Airrika Gordon, posted: Mar 08The good: Free Incoming Everything!
Great Selection of Phones
Friendly Instore & Phone Customer ServiceThe bad: Dont have a CON to say about them yet!Summary: I've only been a customer with them for 3 months now but i have to say they are an exceptional company. I was a little skeptical at first because when i told everyone i was gonna try US Cellular i got all kind of "don't do it's!". But so far so good i have not had ONE dropped call and my reception is almost ALWAYS on 4 bars. I would recommend them to anyone in the midwest. I wish they had the company in all 50 states i would recommend them to my family in other states!

Great Customer Satisfaction??By Brett D., posted: Mar 08The good: No major problems in 11 years of personal service, good friendly customer service, good receptionThe bad: No new technology as far as the newest phones, they didn't have the razor for months!! No rollover minutes.Summary: I've been with US Cellular since they were Cell One, or basically 11 years. I've had friendly customer service, and good reception. I have maybe one dropped call every 2-3 years. I've had no real problems until I reduced my minutes at their recommendation, and proceded to go over my minutes by 650 minutes! I had no warning by them as to my minute usage, and they claimed absolutely no responsibility or leniency when I got a $400 bill.

Customer Satisfaction is 0%By Zia Ouy, posted: Feb 08I have been with US Cellular more than ten years,
and every two years I renew the contract for two additional years and get new dicounted phone with that this time I choose a phone which came out to be very bad by dropping calls and bad ring tone,I went back to change it as they promise that I have thirty days to do so but they did not let me change it because it is no longer new in the box with the plastic cover,and I am stuck with this cheep and poor quility phone for the next two years,this is what I call 0% CUSTOMER
SATISFACTIONS GARANTEED.I advise if you have a choice to choose cellular combany stay away from this cheep one and their cheep cell phones too.

Be careful before signing!!By Sarah D, posted: Jan 08The good: Phone was nice.The bad: Rob you blind, customer service rude and unwilling to fix problems Summary: After my plan ran up, I renewed my plan, but before doing so I told them that I would be moving to live in MA permanetly. I asked if I would get service and was told I would. However, after the 30 trial period was up, I was given a call telling me that I was not in a proper service area (though I had a nation wide plan). This was discovered only after I called and questioned why I was being charged almost double for my calls. And why I had been charged twice for my phone. The one stopped working after seven days (with no damgage done do it) and when I returned the phone for a new one, I was charged again on the bill. Despite the fact that the guy at the store said sometimes phones just stop working. I then recieved a call saying that since I was out of the service area (in MA) that my subscription would be terminated and I would be charged 150 dollars to do so. I called and spoke with Kathy out of the Waukesha Customer Service Center and was told that I had no options other than to pay the 150 dollars or return my phone (not to be reimbursed and having to pay shipping costs).
My service will be terminated in one month. I've been on the service for only 2 months and I spend 40 dollars on my phone. (Though they tried to charge me 80 dollars). Kathy, the woman I spoke to, was rude and unhelpful. She treatened me with legal action and stated that if I tried to press the matter, I would lose at my expense.
In short, stay away from US cellular at all costs or be victim to their rude customer service represenatives and their trickiery.

US Cellular will cost you!!!By Tony G., posted: Nov 07The good: Best customer service available UNTIL you purchase a plan and phone.The bad: US Cellular will do everything possible to TAKE your money.Summary: Short story is this, US Cellular only cares about your money. If they feel they are not getting enough of it they will find a way (any way) to bill you for more of it. Don't like it, tough. It was cheaper to pay the $150 to get out of my US Cellular "mafia" contract and go Verizon, although, I now have to watch my back as I'm told that they have a contract out on me for doing this. US Cellular has a legal license to steal your money and there is NOTHING you can do about it.

Best Wireless Carrier in AmericaBy Andrew LeRoy, posted: Nov 07The good: - Awesome signal strength
- Zero dropped calls
- Great customer service
- Free incoming calls!
- Free incoming text messages!
- Reasonable pricesThe bad: - NoneSummary: I signed up with U.S. Cellular based on a friend's recommendation and I couldn't be more pleased. If you live in the midwest, don't even think of buying a GSM phone (AT&T/T-Mobile). CDMA is king out here but Verizon and Sprint have horrible customer service.
U.S. Cellular is the best wireless carrier in America. It's a fact!
