Cell phone companies? Where do I begin?
I was on a contract plan for many years. Prices went sky high if you wanted or needed a smartphone. We had 4 people on the plan and only one of us had a smartphone. It was $35 a month extra each phone, if all of us had a smartphone, to add data packages. The bill was already almost $200, it would have been $300+ if all of us had a smartphone. Ridiculous?
I took the jump and left the contract behind and joined a pre paid phone plan. I get a smartphone for $69 ($169 retail) and unlimited EVERYTHING, talk, text and data for $55 a month! Yeah it’s a lot cheaper for me, but I don’t have the talk quality as a contract phone, but that is something I will give up for a cheap plan.
What is “Hello Better Messaging Points“?
US Cellular has launch this new and amazing program for new and old US Cellular phone users. By introducing this plan to you guys, US Cellular is telling people to say goodbye to dysfunctional wireless relationships and hello to a better experience or in other words, Goodbye Neglect…Hello Respect!
US Cellular believes that people stay with their wireless plan because they think there is no other options, no better deals out there. US Cellular wants to prove you wrong, because they believe that YOU deserve better! US Cellular treats their customers like neighbors and not numbers.
US Cellular strives on passionate and respectful associates to assist their customers. In addition to that US Cellular provides a point based reward system; no contract after the first contract ends, free incoming calls and texts, free overage protection and free battery swaps.
US Cellular conducted some surveys with the average cell phone user. Here are some outstanding conclusions to these surveys.
- 43 percent of individuals are in the ‘seven year itch’ phase with their wireless provider, noting they are comfortable but suspect they are missing out on something better.
- Out of the 1,208 participants polled across four regions of the country, 56 percent of the respondents admitted to being unhappy with their carrier over the past year but only 35 percent of all respondents have ever broken up with their provider.
- In spite of this overall dissatisfaction, respondents are hesitant to call it quits. More than one-third of respondents say they stick with their current provider because they believe all carriers are the same, it is too much trouble to switch carriers, or they don’t want to sign a new contract.
