Save $800 on the iPhone XS or XS Max at U.S. Cellular (port-in required)

Want to save $800 on an Apple iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max without trading in an older handset or buying a second device? U.S. Cellular lets you do that in certain conditions, the first being that you need to port in a number and ditch your current carrier.
Once you switch to U.S. Cellular, you need to buy your iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max on a 30-month Retail Installment Contract with a new Total Plan line, Unlimited Plus Data ($75 per month), and Device Protection+ (starting at $9.99 per month). All this lets you save $800 on your new Apple smartphone, although savings aren't instant, instead being offered as bill credit over 30 months.
One important thing to note is that US Cellular properly operates only in the following states: California, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. However, nationwide coverage (including voice, 3G, and LTE) is available thanks to partnerships with other carriers.
Just like everyone else, U.S. Cellular is selling the iPhone XS starting at $999, and the larger XS Max starting at $1,099. All colors and all storage options are available to order. More details on U.S. Cellular's new iPhone deal can be found at the source link below.

Great deal, but US Cellular's network is trash for two reasons: 1) A huge chunk of their service area still doesn't support simultaneous voice and data. I didn't think this would matter much until I didn't have it. 2) They have 400MB per month 4G data limit when you're roaming. So if you travel even a little bit any smartphone these days will easily gobble this up. I guess if you live in an area where they've expanded their 4G network to support VoLTE and you rarely travel they could do you well, but I don't know if I could commit to over two years of service with those kind of limitations.

Still wouldn't be a bad deal if you were someone like me and didn't really go out of state very often. Get it paid off (early if possible) have it unlocked and take it to whatever carrier you want to go to.
