CHICAGO, Oct 7, 2011 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) --

U.S. Cellular (NYSE:USM) has taken the cost out of switching wireless providers with a compelling Switch for Free* offer. Through Nov. 20, select phones in the carrier's cutting-edge device portfolio are free with no activation fee. Current customers who are adding a new line can also select one of the free phones with waived activation fee.

Whether you prefer to mostly call and text or you're a tech enthusiast who wants all the bells and whistles of a power-packed smartphone, U.S. Cellular has something for everyone. Free devices include Android(TM)-powered and BlackBerry(R) smartphones, along with messaging and feature phones.

"Our Switch for Free offer clears the path for new customers to get a great phone for free on a great network. Their device can be personalized to how they use it most, and they won't have to pay for features they don't need," said David Kimbell, vice president of marketing for U.S. Cellular. "These are just a few of the reasons we have the happiest customers in wireless."

Those who switch to U.S. Cellular also receive unique benefits such as a valuable rewards program that recognizes customer loyalty. Customers on Belief plans earn points for doing simple things like paying their wireless bill on time, adding a line or referring friends and family. Other benefits include new phones faster without continuously signing contracts, free Battery Swap, Overage Protection, and free incoming calls, texts and picture messages.

U.S. Cellular associates are happy to help customers and potential switchers select the device and plan that best meets their needs, and can organize and simplify their lives.
