us cellular

When T-Mobile became an official Apple partner earlier this year, US Cellular became the largest carrier in the United States to not offer the iPhone. But it looks like that’s all going to change next month.

After turning down the popular handset in 2011, the company confirmed in May of this year that the iPhone was coming. And today, it announced that it will get the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on November 8th…

The iPhone 5s and 5c launched on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile on September 20th, and has been rolling out to smaller carriers ever since. So US Cellular’s November 8th launch is over a month behind.

But the good news, for subscribers at least, is that it’s coming. Unfortunately, though, that’s about all we really know right now. We’ll be sure to update this post with more information as it becomes available.

      Its just not known much since it doesnt sell iphones or nothing. I have verizon peronally. But anyways i say it could be as good as tmobile. Lol.

        Which is not saying much, considering T-Mobile’s LTE coverage is horrible in non-metro areas

        True. I never said it will be a great plan for people whom wish to have fast cellular data. Its just that its okay for it to be tried out by those whome really just want to have a good phone. I do strongly agree it wont really do any difference though.

    iPhone 5S, 5C news feels like an old story now.

  • John Jones

    US Cellular is very well-known in North-East region.

  • Matthew Cleveland

    Why is Apple adding all these extra carriers to sell the 5s? It can’t keep up with the demand on the carriers it already has.

  • Jason Masters

    I thought us cellular was out of business how did they get back in?

    • Justin Thomas

      To my understanding US Cellular was bought out by Sprint. And with that… Sprint was going to start Phasing out US Cellular as a name.

    Sorry USCC – when you announced you did not want the iPhone I moved my business elsewhere. You have good customer service, but in the NW your coverage is pretty isolated, but for business you ‘were’ great to work with.
