US Cellular is a pay-as-you go cell network that is based in the Midwest. This means their coverage is somewhat limited, and although there is nationwide calling, only calls in the Midwest area are considered “native.” For those who primarily place calls in this region however, US Cellular is an excellent choice. US Cellular offers an unlimited calling plan and a variety of smart phones to choose from.
UC Cellular services 29 states in total, and has a network of over 6.2 million subscribers. Due to the roaming charges that apply for those traveling out of the Midwest region, the network is not a good choice for those who frequently travel internationally or to other regions. Locals, however, will enjoy the unlimited calling plan and free mobile-to-mobile with other US Cellular users.
There are a variety of pay-as-you-go plans to choose from with US Cellular including ones that allow the user to pay for roaming ahead of time. Incoming calls and messages are always free which is another nice perk for those who chose US Cellular prepaid plans. For more budget conscious, or limited cell phone users in the Midwest area, US Cellular prepaid plan is a logical choice in networks and can provide great savings.
