Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c get November 8th release date for U.S. Cellular

Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c get November 8th release date for U.S. Cellular
U.S. Cellular subscribers will finally get their crack at the two new Apple iPhone models on November 8th. Pricing for the full-featured Apple iPhone 5s and the mid-range Apple iPhone 5c was not disclosed. The carrier recently announced its new shared data plan which starts with monthly service as low as $40. That buys you unlimited talk, text and 300MB of data. On the other end of the spectrum is the 75GB plan, which costs $560 a month.

If the pricing is consistent with what the phones are going for at the other major carriers, the 16GB Apple iPhone 5s will be priced at $199  with a signed two year contract with the 32GB model tagged at $299 and the 64GB unit offered at $399. The 16GB Apple iPhone 5c will most likely cost $99 on contract with the 32GB unit wearing a price tag of $199.

Darkkjedii, really? The best? Way wrong sir! Far from it! That device causes many more problems than any device should. Way more harm than good. Heavy subsidies, huge upfront commitments, forcing partners to very painful and troublesome changes just to support that stupid device, force compensation reductions to sales staff and lowers incentives for good, hard working people, and the list goes on for Apple's iron fist dictatorship control over everything. That doesn't even begin to scratch the surface. I, for one, wish that US Cellular would've stayed as far from that device and company, as east is from the west!!

Yeah... Because who are they to give their customers more choice in phone options? What were they thinking?!

Do either of you, or have either of you, ever worked in the mobile industry? Do you have firsthand experience with what happens when that device is a part of your line up? Have either of you witnessed the hard ship of small business privately owned carrier dealers that have to pay for their own inventory to serve customers? A factor that has contributed to small businesses in the industry, the backbone of America, by the way, having to close their doors and put people out of work? Enjoy your phones and choices. Keep feeding the machine.

LOL! You buying? Let's just turn blind eyes for the love of our electronics. Let's stick our heads in the sand and drown away our cares in the brew! Sounds like a great prescription! Are you sure your username shouldn't be docjedii?

Nope "dark", just think you're getting a little too wrapped up in this bro. Lighten up, you seem like a very smart guy, just enjoy what you purchase bro. +1

This is good news for them, they've been losing customers steadily did To the competition having the iPhone. They are in a market I use to live in. They actually have really good reception and strong service pretty much everywhere they operate. I Also think they have LTE everywhere as well. Too bad they aren't in Sprint's spot and vice versa.

Dark, I get your point. This subject just hits way too close to home with me. I've seen the adverse affects I mentioned above. I've been in the industry quite a while. I've been affected personally, and I've seen other good people adversely affected as well. I probably shouldn't let it bother me as much as it does. It's life experiences bro. Some personal, others vicarious. It's like me telling you to lighten up about something that has caused, or was at least a factor, in hardship of some kind on you, or your family. This things can be tough to let go of sometimes. Again, point taken. I appreciate and respect your perspective.

Selestic, you are right. US Cellular's network has consistently received reliability and performance awards where they operate for 15 consecutive years. Where they may not own tower assets, being a CDMA technology carrier, guess who they have roaming agreements with. Solid network connections nation wide. I'm surprised they are not a larger carrier. I guess they don't necessarily need to be. Just be excellent at what you do. I think other bigger boys could learn some things from them. They also do have LTE in pretty remote areas. I wonder, at times, why the bigger boys can't do the same. They have an interesting approach toward customers and customer service. Pretty refreshing actually. Too bad they are not available as a carrier everywhere. I'd certainly jump on board.
