Important Information

In support of governmental recommendations, we have temporarily closed select stores across the country to help ensure the safety of our customers and associates. The remainder of our stores will be open with reduced hours until further notice.

As many of our authorized agent locations are instituting similar practices, we encourage you to call ahead before visiting one of those locations.

A network as resilient as you.
Our Customers
To support our customers impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, U.S. Cellular® has signed on to the Keep Americans Connected Pledge.
As part of this pledge, now extended through June 30, U.S. Cellular® will:
  • Waive any late fees that any residential or small business customers incur because of their economic circumstances related to the coronavirus pandemic
  • Not terminate service to any residential or small business customers because of their inability to pay their bills due to the disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic
Customers currently covered by the pledge who seek the extension through June 30 should contact us before May 15 and others who are unable to pay their bill because of disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic should contact us as soon as possible at 1-888-939-3900 to discuss their options.
We're Taking Additional Steps To Keep You Connected
We're committed to having your back and keeping you connected during these uncertain times. We've made updates to our offerings to reflect how you're using – or will need to use – your smartphones in the coming months.

Now extended through July 31st: No matter what plan you're on, be assured that you'll continue to have the smartphone and home internet data you need and not be charged for any overages.
Here's what we've done:
  • Eliminated overage charges for those of you on legacy plans, including Shared Connect and other postpaid and prepaid plans with data limits, so you can use the data you need without worrying about your bill.
  • To further enhance your experience, if you are currently on a limited 2GB or 6GB plan, your plan will not be throttled to 2G speeds at those thresholds.
  • Additionally, extra data provided beyond your plan will be delivered at speeds that are suitable for standard definition video quality.
  • If you're on an Unlimited Everyday or Even Better plan, we've provided you an extra 15GB of hotspot data to adjust to any shifting and varying work arrangements.
  • Eliminated data limits on all High-Speed Internet plans, so your in-home Wi-Fi service can continue to have the data you need for education and entertainment during this time.
We took the additional steps of eliminating overage and providing hotspot data proactively with your needs in mind, and no action is needed from you to receive these enhancements.

How to clean your phone
We recommend wiping devices frequently with a soft, slightly damp lint-free cloth. We also encourage you to not share your phone with other people and keep it out of restrooms. While these tips take on a higher importance now, they can be used year-round to help keep your devices clean and germ-free. For tips, see what your manufacturer’s website recommends.
Our Stores
Please be aware that, in accordance with social distancing guidelines, some stores may have a reduced occupancy limit. If the store is at capacity, you will be placed on our waitlist and notified via call or text that we are ready to serve you. You can also schedule an appointment for a specific date and time.

For the safety of our customers and associates, and to ensure continuous store operations, face coverings are required in our stores. Non-medical masks, bandanas, scarves, and cloth can be used.
