In any case, after being a customer of US Cellular since the 90's I've left them for 'greener' pastures.
It just started to drive me nuts. Their prices aren't really any better month to month than anyone else's(not substantially).
They're selling their Galaxy SII now for $350(minus rebate). SO you're still paying $350 for the phone. Other larger carriers now have the SII's at 50 or less.
Their customer service may be top notch but seriously how often are you calling customer service with a problem? If you're needing their help all the time there are bigger problems.
I dunno, VZW is pretty pricey, and they are worse about forcing proprietary bloatware down your throat, IMO.
But I do hear what you're saying.
My problem is, in the area where I live, USCC has the best coverage of any carrier, including VZW.
It is very frustrating that they are always one year behind the rest of the market when it comes to phones. It would be easier to swallow if they would charge what the rest of the market charges. The GS2 is $50 now in VZW stores. Without a rebate. $350? For a phone that is about to be replaced by the GS3 in September or October?
I wouldn't mind getting rid of my Mez. It's been a decent phone, but now it's ready for retirement.
I like the GS2, but I'm not liking the fact that it is a 3G phone and we're 3-6 months away from getting 4G in my local market.
I'm also curious to see what happens with USCC and ICS. international GS2's are getting ready to upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich.
Samsung and USCC completely screwed up the 2.1-->2.2-->2.3 transitions with the GS1, so I am not holding my breath for a "quick" release on these phones.
