“Smartphones continue to be our go-to, all-in-one gadget,” said Eric Conlon, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in New England “Android-powered devices have access to nearly half a million apps along with digital movies, books and music. Customers who switch to U.S. Cellular join the only points-based rewards program in wireless and receive points that can be used towards faster phone upgrades, free phones, ringtones and accessories.”
Android-powered devices enable customers to transform a smartphone to a device that meets their exact needs. The Samsung Galaxy S Aviator allows customers to enjoy faster web browsing and quick app downloads with access to 4G LTE speeds that are up to 10 times faster than 3G and similar to a cable Internet connection.
“We believe that each customer deserves the best wireless experience, so our associates are here to help you get the most out of your device,” Conlon said.
