    Lame. They need to focus on what they have already, which is a decent selection of Android phones. They just need a flagship 4G phone that will make people drool. If USCC got the Galaxy Note in with 4G, I would crap myself with joy.

    iPhones? Meh.

    I picked up a new Motorola Electrify yesterday at the Freeport, IL USCC store (Fantastic phone!).

    I asked the seemingly forthright rep about USCC and iPhone. She said immediately that they had received a corporate email stating USCC would not be receiving the iPhone.

    If I recall correctly, US Cellular was offered the opportunity to carry the new iPhone (much like similar regional carriers like C-Spire) and declined. I think US Cellular is content with its lineup of smart phones and sees no need to upset the balance with the iPhone. If for no other reason, it would be a problem because it would not be eligible for the battery swap program.

    Because a giant half-breed mutation between a phone and a tablet is soooo useful. They are selling like hotcakes too. Have yet to see a single person hoisting it to their face.

    Meh..

    Actually, Samsung sold about two million of them in the first couple of months alone, so yes, they have been selling quite well.
