U.S. Cellular's Samsung GALAXY Note II pre-order page is up; device is $299.99 with a 2-year pact
did the same thing with the Samsung Galaxy S III, charging $299.99 on contract for the 16GB model, and then returning that $100 in the form of a gift card. It would appear that those who reserve the phablet online will not be asked to lay out that extra $100.
The carrier says it will charge your credit card 72 hours after your order, giving you three days to act on your buyer's remorse. Both the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung GALAXY Note II have been offered to the same carriers for each model's stateside launch. Those operators are Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular, and we wouldn't be surprised to see this pattern continue for future high-end Samsung releases.

U.S. Cellular FTW.
Only other carrier I would go with if I lived in their Markets.

US Cellular is a great company. I live in Chicago/Champaign and i had a great experience with them.

With US Cellular making News like this, it wont be long before the other carriers follow suit about the pricing for this phone. Im hoping for $199 or $249 for the AT&T 16GB model (2yr contract)

I wonder when this will be release on Sprint?, and in what colors?.

Wow that is pretty steep for my blood. They should make it more premium looking at that price. Can't argue with those beastly specs though

I am tempting to make the switch to U.S Cellular from Sprint to get this phone. U.S Cellular states that it will have 4G LTE coverage in my area by the end of this year and I highly doubt I'll get 4G LTE from Sprint anytime soon, as we have very spotty 3G and not 4G WiMax.

US cellular is swimming in debt, and it's nice to see that in the last 6 months they've picked up some new phones, but they are still just a poopy regional carrier that will get bought out by some larger cdma carrier like sprint or verizon.

Sprint is spending the little bit of money they have on LTE coverage so I doubt they would buy them

They aren't going anywhere. U.S Cellular is a great regional carrier. If you live in Iowa this is the carrier you should go with. They have better coverage than Verizon or any other carrier in that state and 4G LTE.
