U.S. Cellular is finally joining the party when it comes to offering one of the most popular Android handsets on the market, the SamsungII. The regional cellular provider announced that the Galaxy S II will run on its nationwide 3G network. It will be available for $229.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and 2-year commitment.
The GSII will pack almost identical features you’d find in every U.S. variant, such as 1.2 GHz dual-core processor (Samsung Exynos C210), Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED Flash, Swype keyboard pre-installed, messaging, and 16 GB user memory that supports up to 32GB microSD cards.
“The Galaxy S II is the ultimate phone for people looking to simplify and organize their lives,” said Edward Perez, vice president of sales and marketing operations for U.S. Cellular, in a prepared statement. “The features combined with U.S. Cellular’s unique benefits, like our Battery Swap, make it the go-to device for customers who depend on their smartphone to keep up with their busy schedules.”
Just like Verizon Wireless with its Trade-In Program, U.S. Cellular has the same idea that gives its customers the chance to receive up to $150 on qualifying smartphones by trading in their current phone. Another cool thing the company does is offer users a points-based rewards program that gives subscribers benefits for being great customers – things like paying their wireless bill on time, adding a line or referring friends and family. These points can be used for anything, so if I were you I’d see if I could capitalize on it for the Galaxy S II.
