Regional Carrier US Cellular has made a few changes to its prepaid plans. We have good and bad news for you. The good news is that the prices have been lowered for all 3 prepaid plans. The bad news is that if you are a smartphone user (we assume the vast majority of our readers are), you are now forced to sign up for the most expensive plan.
The plans are set as follows:
- $35 a month for 400 voice minutes and 400 messages
- $50 a month for unlimited voice and messages, with 1 GB of data
- $65 a month for unlimited voice and messages, with 2 GB of data
As mentioned above, smartphone users will be required to sign up for the $65 plan. Even though a substantial amount of users would do just fine with 1 GB a month. On the brighter side, you are allowed to keep your current plan if you have one of the older ones. If you don’t need the 2 GB of data, your best option would probably be to stick with your old plan (and WiFi) for as long as you can.
