U.S. Cellular Offering $300 Credit for Switchers, Including Those with Cracked Smartphone Screens

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Consumers and businesses looking to take advantage of switching offers
by upgrading wireless carriers now have one less hurdle to worry about.
U.S. Cellular is exclusively offering a $300 credit for customers who
port their number in and trade in their device – even if that device has
a cracked screen. On top of that, U.S. Cellular is offering an unlimited
buy-out of customers’ current contracts after they submit their final
bill from their carrier.

“We know that there are people who are looking to change wireless
carriers, but they have broken screens that have no trade-in value, and
therefore can’t afford to make the switch,” said Joe Settimi, vice
president of marketing for U.S. Cellular. “We wanted to remove that
barrier for people and give them an easy way to upgrade to the
high-quality U.S. Cellular network and get a better wireless value than
Verizon and AT&T.”

U.S. Cellular is also offering all of its home solution products for a
penny, along with the first two months of service for free. This
includes the Home Phone, Router + Home Phone, Hot Spot and Modem devices
that normally are $20 to $30 per month each. In addition, if a current
customer refers a friend to U.S. Cellular, and the friend chooses to
activate a smartphone on a Shared Connect plan, they both will receive

Data and Switcher Offer requires Retail Installment Contract,
