US Cellular offers buy one get five deal on Android

U.S. Cellular has announced a family sized buy one, get up to five free, deal on Android handsets and messaging phones. Customers who sign up for a two year US Cellular agreement and purchase a Samsung Mesermize (aka Galaxy S) for $99.99 can get up to five LG Optimus U smartphones free or one Samsung Messager Touch for $29.99 and get up to five Samsung Profiles for free. To sweeten the deal (as if it wasn't sweet enough), US Cellular is also offering a $100 Smartphone activation credit for every new line. There's even more benefit if customers add either their Primary Plus Plan or Belief Plan which offers phone upgrades after 18 months.
“These amazing deals are great for customers who want devices to fit their family’s wide variety of needs and lifestyles,” said Alan D. Ferber, executive vice president of operations for U.S. Cellular. “Busy parents will love how the cutting-edge Android-powered smartphones help them stay productive, and kids can stay entertained and connected with friends on the go. Many of our customers prefer texting over talking, so we also wanted to delight them with great deals on our messaging phones.”

Canada Doesn’t Care About the New Galaxy Tab

Really. They don't even care at all. Why else would they only offer up a $100 discount to their Bell Samsung Galaxy Tab when the fabulous businesses like US Cellular who is doing a Valentine's Day 2 for 1 deal, or Sprint who slashed their Tab down to a mere nubbin - $300! Clearly Canada plans on taking some of my stash of old Tabs that I requested upon the announcement of the new Tabs at Mobile World Congress.

$199.99 Galaxy Tab as US Cellular boosts discount

US Cellular has further discounted its version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, pushing the 7-inch Android slate down to $199.99 after various rebates (and assuming the usual 2-year agreement). That makes it the cheapest way to get your hands on the Froyo tablet in the US, though it does require a $100 mail-in rebate be processed. However, the $200 deal is not available with US Cellular's cheaper data plans (if you want to pay just $14.99 for 200MB of data a month, you're still looking at $399.99 for the Tab itself), with packages starting from $54.99 per month for 5GB.

Take a peek with me and us at this lovely little "starter" phone for those wishing to dive into Android for a cheap enough price that it wouldn't be the biggest loss if they didn't enjoy it.

Take a look at the unboxing and hands-on with this device in the video and gallery below.
