U.S. Cellular will give you up to $300 for your trade, even with a cracked screen
If you are currently rockin' a phone with a cracked screen that is otherwise in working condition, U.S. Cellular will allow you to trade-in the device and pick up as much as $300 in credit toward a new handset. And if you switch to U.S. Cellular from your current carrier, you can get reimbursed for the cost of breaking your contract with them, no matter how large the fee.

U.S. Cellular, which is the nation's fifth largest carrier after Sprint, will also pay you to recruit someone to the wireless operator. If a person you recommend U.S. Cellular to ends up activating a smartphone on a Shared Connect Plan, both you and the new subscriber will receive $50. If you have a number of friends looking to switch, you might be able to make some decent money here.

Starting tomorrow, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge will be offered inside the the carrier's physical stores, which makes this a propitious time for you to trade in your current handset, even if it has a crack, and use the proceeds of the trade toward a new high-end Samsung phone.

Up to which means you will never get the 300.

"up to" that's the key word there.

Just shows how much phone companies are ripping people off with ludicrous prices! I've just ordered an Umi 'TOUCH' for $149.99 from Banggood. It will do everything I want, plus a whole heap more.http://www.banggood.com/UMI-TOUCH-5_5-inch-Android-6_0-3GB-RAM-MT6753-Octa-core-4G-Smartphone-p-1032830.html?p=JQ26191551677201504Z

It should be good with the Latest Android Marshmallow installed. I've owned a previous model with Lollipop and and I had no issues with the UI until I dropped It. LOL. It even came pre-rooted in the factory. The price to performance ratio is astounding.

The problem with these phones is that they do not support US bands for high speed internet. If they did, I would definitely get one of these Chinese phones instead of the expensive $600-800 phones.

Most people, like myself, live outside of the US with its strange array of networks. However I did read a comment from someone that it will connect to the American At&t 4G service, whatever that is! :-)
