U.S. Cellular introduces new prepaid Simple Connect plans and financing option
U.S. Cellular has introduced today new no-contract plans and a new program for financing devices. New prepaid Simple Connect plans include the $40 feature phone plan and two service plans for smartphones, $50 and $60 plan.
The $40 monthly plan includes unlimited talk, unlimited text and unlimited data for feature phones. The $50 smartphone monthly plan comes with unlimited talk, text and data with first 500 MB at high-speeds. The $60 smartphone monthly plan includes unlimited talk, text and data with first 2 GB at high-speeds. U.S. Cellular throttles data after high speed data allotments.
Those who want to subscribe one of the new prepaid Simple Connect plans can do it by bringing their own handset, purchase one at the full retail price or take advantage of the new U.S. Cellular’s Retail Installment Contract program. With this new financing option, instead of paying the full price of the phone straight away, customers can spread it over 24 monthly installments. The monthly rates would be added to the user’s monthly bill. U.S. Cellular also requires $35 device activation fee.
