U.S. Cellular to Offer Apple Products
Sometime 'Later This Year'
by Karl Bode 08:22AM Monday May 06 2013
Buried in a statement on the company's latest earnings report, wireless carrier U.S. Cellular stated that they too will soon be offering Apple products. "We have a number of strategies in progress to increase loyalty and attract more customers, including our announcement today that we will begin offering Apple products later this year," said the company. U.S. Cellular has had a length and spirited negotiation with Apple, originally turning down a deal because the "terms were unacceptable from a risk and profitability standpoint." Leap Wireless, who is sitting on piles of unsold iPhones because their customers don't want to buy them unsubsidized, would probably agree.

If I lived in Maine

If I lived in Maine, this would give me a reason to switch to US Cellular now that they are going to have iPhone.

At least VZW has it. VZW is my favorite of the big four.

Re: If I lived in Maine

Yes we know VZ and their family of companies are your favorite. And that you won't do business with anyone besides them, DirecTV and or DirecTV. And you LOVE their payment plan since that is how you purchased your iPad. Which actually TMO USA was the first to have that plan, and also VZW is one of the MOST expensive carriers around so i'm sure they love you too.
