$100 of that comes back to you in the form of a rebate. Take note that if you are a new U.S. Cellular customer, you are tying yourself up with a 2-year contract at that price. Current U.S. Cellular customers do not have to sign an additional contract after the first 2-year pact expires. And if you desire the white version of the phone, your after rebate cost is $179.
For current U.S. Cellular customers with a student heading back to school, or for the first time smartphone buyer, this would be a great deal, especially with the lack of handcuffs. For new customers, asking you to be tied up for 2 years with this device might be too much to ask for.
