I have a few acquaintances with USC. They won't be happy about this deal. Several moved to USC to get AWAY from sprint!

This is the new improved Sprint, the people who ran away will be pleasantly surprise how much Sprint has change (Customer Service to Services).

Sprint has learn a very major lesson (on the brink of going out of business) on how to treat their valuable customers.

Called this right after T-Mobile Made that deal with Metro PCS!!! Hopefully this should make 4G LTE roll out easier for sprint (Esp. In NY Cause that seems to lax)

Now T-Mobile needs to buy U.S. Cellular's AWS-1 spectrum for the Mississippi Valley Region. And buy Cricket as well for more AWS spectrum.

Just so you know the dots represent all of 4g not just LTE, like the legend says, because Pittsburgh only has WiMax.

Really disapointed at USCC to do this. They dropped this on their customer base and employess with almost no notice. They've always been pretty ethical when it comes to things like this, but this time they left a sour taste in my mouth.

Best thing Uscellular can do is fire Mary Dillon before she completes her goal of destroying what is left of the company and ultimately selling the whole company to sprint.. They went from fifth largest under Jack and down to 8th and falling under her. Employess finding out this information on the internet before they're told at work is poor communication especially for a telecom company.Go back to Wispak/Mcdonalds and leave the telecommunications industry to people that know what the'yre doing. Sad that 600+ working people are getting axed while this joke of a ceo still makes the big bucks and probably nice bonuses for making one bad decision after another

I guess that's curtains for the US Cellular customer guarantee lol...that brand new initiative lasted for all of 3 months. "AT&T and Verizon aren't doing anything like this..." & apparently neither is USCellular anymore.
