LG, surprisingly, has been one of the quicker OEMs to push out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to its flagship phone from early 2015. The LG G4 on Sprint saw the update a few weeks ago and now the US Cellular variant is joining it.
While we wish we were sharing this same news on the AT&T and Verizon variants, we’re just not there yet. If you have the US Cellular model, though, you should see the update this week if you haven’t already. A source of ours who tipped us to the update said it was supposed to start yesterday. (more…)
To kick off the new year, US Cellular has launched a new promo that gets you 6GB of data for just $40. They are also offering up to $300 in credit for those who switch and other discounts on monthly device connection charges.
The 6GB for $40 is pretty straight forward from what I can tell. At $40, US Cellular is $20 cheaper than Verizon, so that’s something. (more…)
Update: AT&T users of the Moto X Pure Edition are now getting Marshmallow as well, according to an update posted by Motorola’s David Schuster this morning.
Big news today from Motorola’s David Schuster on Google+, as he announced that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update should now be rolling out to owners of the Moto X Pure Edition on Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular. (more…)
US Cellular announced this morning that it is simplifying and lowering its data plan pricing to “further back up its guarantee to beat Verizon and AT&T data plans.” After looking at their new plans, I can’t exactly say that I agree with the simplifying part, as this looks like the old way that Verizon did things, which was the exact opposite of simple.

Where can you buy the Gear S2 from Samsung? So far, most major US wireless carriers have confirmed plans to carry it. No one gave us pricing or a date of availability, but Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and US Cellular all said it’ll be in their lineups. (more…)
The new Moto G (3rd gen) is no secret at this point. We’ve seen renders, mentions on Motorola’s site of Moto Maker options, promo videos, and hands-on time with the phone all within the last week. There are still some questions, though, one of which involves price. How low will Motorola go with the new Moto G? Will they stick close to the 2nd generation’s $179 price point? According to a source of ours, that’s exactly where Motorola plans to land. (more…)
You know that report about Samsung moving up the launch date of the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ to give them some breathing room ahead of Apple’s next iPhone unveiling? I wouldn’t be shocked at this point if Samsung really has decided to release these two new phones earlier than originally anticipated. Yesterday, a Samsung phone under model number SM-N920 showed up at the FCC for almost every single major US carrier. We’ve got listing for T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T, just not Sprint (UPDATE: Sprint is live). If that wasn’t enough, we are also seeing listings for another model number of SM-G928 that is largely thought to be the Galaxy S6 Edge+, a bigger version of the original S6 Edge. (more…)
US Cellular is feeling confident in their offerings to mobile customers, now guaranteeing that they can beat the prices of both Verizon and AT&T. If they can’t, you will receive a $50 promotional card to spend however you see fit.
To get started, all you need to do is bring in your wireless bill to a US Cellular shop, and they will take care of the rest. If you end up switching from either AT&T or Verizon to a Shared Connect plan with Installment Pricing and Device Protection, US Cellular will pick up the cost 100%. (more…)
